We have a look at a couple of Intel X99 motherboards, with both the EVGA X99 Classified and MSI X99S XPOWER AC being put to the test. Both motherboards are at the upper end of the spectrum, and both should allow for some big overclocking potential. There are also some storage options to look at today, as the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB PCIe SSD gets reviewed. For those desiring more storage, the QNAP TS-451 Turbo NAS Server may be the solution, as it offers four bays and a low cost to appeal to most people. Wrapping things up for today is another look at the history of the computer, covering the rise of Intel.
