Jetway HI09-Z Review

My review:


This motherboard is quite basic, it supports only Crossfire, and its not a go happy overclocker, i fiddled with the voltages and CPU configs and the maximum stable OC i was able to get was 4.7ghz, the bios isnt UEFI and some people may not like that, and its also very basic with minimal voltage adjustments, keep in mind that the bios need to be updated so as to support DDR3 2133 and for some other stability issues on boot


As far as performance goes, it goes head to head with other top end Z68 mobos which i read in a review by tweaktown. All in all, this mobo is good for the average gamer who dont want to fiddle around in the bios and overclock the cpu and RAM
One other thing is it has a mini PCI express slot for isntalling mSATA SSD for making use of the Intel Smart Response Technology, which, many of the upper class mobos dont have


Tweaktown review:


As far as looks go, the HI09-Z motherboard from Jetway is pretty good looking and carries with it some nice features in the form of the built in power button, LED debug reader and mini PCI-E port. The problem seems to be once we get up and running. Our 2600k which has been flawless on every other motherboard we tried, just wasn't playing nice on this one.
When we go through and look at numbers like heat as well, we know it's not related to that, as in that department we again see the board doing very well. Unfortunately it doesn't change the fact that at stock we couldn't get our RAM to run as strong as it normally would on other boards, nor could we get our CPU running past a 43x multiplier.
We emailed Jetway and didn't hear back from them and we looked at their website and confirmed we're using the most up to date BIOS. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the board itself because once we bumped those voltages up a little, it ran perfect at stock. The issue is no one should have to go into the BIOS to get their machine running stable at stock.
On the topic of the BIOS, it's not nice. We can get past the lack of the graphical interface, we've seen GIGABYTE choose not to use it and that's not a problem. The biggest issue with the BIOS is not only the lack of options, but with the options we do have, the range is an issue.
I really feel that this board is only a BIOS fix away from performing well. Unfortunately we don't have that BIOS. The biggest issue we're going to have is when someone from Jetway does get back to us, they're going to send us through a list of things that will try to determine if it's something else other than the motherboard. If the amount of motherboards we've reviewed lately tell the story, though, it's that the components we're using are running like a dream.
There's some potential here as the board looks great and once up and running, performance is exactly as it should be. There's no doubt some issues at the moment and with no price and the board not being listed on Newegg yet, we feel it's almost pointless giving it any kind of score at this time.
