1 out of 5 eggsNot 1866 ready...

Pros: Inexpensive, has 1866 Dual Channel, Fairly good documentation and instructions for install, was packaged nicely. Did what it was supposed to minus one major detail.

Cons: Bios was not compatible for 1866 RAM, followed the troubleshooting on the ECS website and did the bios flash according to instruction. Cooked the MB on reboot. Website says they don't RMA after a bios flash. I bought this for 1866 RAM and it maxed at 1333 due to the BIOS, NOT HAPPY. Luckily NewEgg will of course RMA but I really would have preferred it work. Now I'm out a week of waiting and shipping cost. For the 10 bucks more for return shipping I could have paid for a trusted name brand and better spec's. Lesson learned I suppose.

Other Thoughts: Dear Manufacturers. Make sure your own RMA process and Product spec's don't conflict. I should never have had to taker the risk of flashing the bios in the first place let alone eaten the cost and time for the consequences.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the OC issues you have been experiencing. Based on the specification, BIOS cannot detect the 1866MHz memory automatically. We would like to guide you how to manually change the memory setting inside the BIOS in order to achieve this performance. Please contact us so we may gather more details and we can find a solution for you.

5 out of 5 eggsWow! A sweet little board....

Pros: Put it in, plugged it in - it ran like a champ the first time. Easy to set up, easy to work with. Bios works with a mouse. That takes some getting used to. Sweet little board.

Cons: can't think of any.

Other Thoughts: I'm getting one of these for myself...

1 out of 5 eggsStay away!!

Pros: Good price for a basic system. If it worked out of the box as advertised I would like it.

Cons: I found out to late that it wont work out of the box unless you have a PCI Graphics card. ECS needs to get it's act together on this. It ships with an old BIOS that has to be updated before the VGA plug works.. REALLY!!

SO if you don't have a spare PCI Graphics card lying around. Stay away. Just look for reviews on this at Tiger and you will see..

Other Thoughts: I actually bought this from another vendor. After returning two of them in a week due to same VGA issue I gave up and came here to Newegg for another brand.

Manufacturer Response:

We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Unfortunately you may have received an older batch which was shipped prior to the release of your specific APU, although our current inventory is up to date and should support newer APUs. If you happen to receive a motherboard that does not, we can replace your motherboard with new one through our 99-hour RMA service.
