4 out of 5 eggsSHINY!!

Pros: A truly powerful motherboard that more than meets my needs with plenty of features.

-It has quite an expansive set of ports for USB but other things

-A great mix of gold and black. Make sure your case has a side panel so you can mindlessly gawk at the pretty lights and gold bits!

-The buttons and debug led were quite useful in initial testing before installing it into the case.

-Plenty of SATA cables and has 4 SATA III ports, perfect for some upgrades I have planned.

-It was quite easy to play around with the RAM timings with this board.

-The onboard WiFi and Bluetooth is nice to have as well.

Cons: -Rather wonky BIOS, for some reason, it frequently resets when resuming from sleep (Set to S3) and shows an error. It is not too big a problem, as after entering the BIOS and booting the main HDD, it resumes normally.

- As said in another review, the Clear CMOS jumper is right next to the primary PCIe port. It should have been placed as a button with the others.
Anyone who would buy a board of this caliber would very likely install a 2-slot video card, blocking the jumper.

-The Driver software that came with the board simply links to the website, with no option to choose an OS or download anything. I would like to flash the BIOS to hopefully fix the sleep problem, but I cannot find one that is compatible.

-The onboard graphics chip and onboard DVI port did not seem to work while my video card was installed. It does not matter much, but I would would have liked to use the features of the MVP software.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board to any gamer!

All in all, it is a great board, despite the minor problems I have with it, which probably could be fixed with the right settings or slightly different hardware setup.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Core i7 3700
PNY Nvidia GTX 670

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Satisfied

Pros: Smooth install, no problems with booting, been installed in my machine for 7+ months without absolutely no instability or performance issues. This is one of the smoothest hardware refreshes I've gone through. See system specs below.

Cons: Had a bit of an issue getting the bluetooth drivers installed; drivers on ECS's website would get corrupted every time I tried to download them and could not extract them all the way; found drivers on alternate web site and they installed with no issues

Other Thoughts: System specs:

5 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy for PCIe3: 2x16

Pros: nice appearance

Cons: i can't afford one

Other Thoughts: Be advised that PCI Express Configurations are limited by the 1155 22nm CPU itself, and can only be; 1x16, 2x8 maximum, so the marketing claim this board makes of 2x16 is irresponsibly confusing and should be corrected by NewEgg so vendors like ECS can't get away with making false claims just to further their sales here and dupe NewEgg customers.

Manufacturer Response:

When using two VGA cards, the bandwidth is x8 bandwidth; when using one VGA card, the bandwidth is x16. This is the information listed our ECS website and Newegg does not list this motherboard as supporting 2x16 in a two card configuration.

If you can please do contact us, as we would like to find out where you found your incorrect information and if possible have it removed. Like you we also do not wish to have incorrect information listed.

Might you be thinking of our Z77H2-AX (1.0) motherboard which can support a 1x16, 2x16 or 1x16 + 2x8 configuration? It can do so, due to an added PLX PEX 8747 chip, which adds 16 PCIe lanes to the Z77H2-AX (1.0).

Please do remember that we are here to answer any questions or concerns that you main have with any ECS products.

2 out of 5 eggsAmateurish attempt at Market niche

Pros: Catchy look with the gold accents, easy to install, support from ECS is better than average. Blue-tooth, and wireless dongles are nice perk. 4 Sata III ports

Cons: No Clear CMOS button, Clear CMOS jumper located under where a PCIE card would obscure, Only 6 total Sata ports (senseless for RAIDs) Clear CMOS corrupts SATA III drivers, Board only Oclocks in EICT and TURBO settings, BIOS is limiting, Only 3 Fan headers.

Other Thoughts: Too much effort, if you intend to clock. Senseless inclusion of VGA serial port. If ECS wants to edge-up in the builders arena, they need to get accurate, realistic marketing information before they start to build on a design, and make sure the Bios is SOLID, and Under-sell the closest competitors.

Manufacturer Response:

We do thank you for your feedback. We will forward your suggestions and concerns on the design and layout to the proper channel as we are always looking and striving to improve our product.

For your SATA III driver issues, please go ahead and contact us. We would like to find out more specifics about this issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGolden board,I think so at least.

Pros: overall it is very high quality, pretty sturdy compared to what I had an extremely good customer service, beyond what I'm used to. I like the overall physical look, it's just the right amount of black and gold. It looks like a lot of work went into making these boards, more than usual. I received a lot of customer support when calling them and speaking to one of their sales managers. he was very helpful and as far as I know their company is very interested in helping their customers.

Cons: I would have to say , really the only thing I can think of is that you cannot do quad sli unless you use a very overpriced card. Other than that nothing.
