3 out of 5 eggsFlawed Bios

Pros: Good feature set and price (after MIR).

Cons: With A10 5800K, if multiplier was left on auto, base clock was set to 90 instead of 100. Would not boot with G.Skill 1600 memory (I set all parameters according to XMP profile).

Other Thoughts: I called tech support and was able to speak with someone right away. He said he would try to duplicate the setup in their lab and let me know. I never received a return call. Newegg customer service was excellent (RMA for refund).

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent For Price

Pros: Lots of features, especially for a economy board. Easy setup. Built for a customer with low budget. I am using this with a dedicated graphics card so can't comment on the graphics.

Cons: None so far. It's very new so if problems come up in future would have to update review.

Other Thoughts: Teamed with an X4 740X AMD cpu, only 4 gig GSkill DDR3-1600 RAM. Even so seems fast and stable. No OC for customer.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works perfectly

Pros: Very well made and it works great. It cost no more than the "55" series Micro-ATX boards that would come without the USB3, the DVI, the two extra PCIE x1 expansion slots, the 8 pin power connector or the heat sinks. And it's a nice clean looking board. I have never had an ECS board fail, and I have used quite a few of them, over a long period of time.

Cons: None, whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Mated to an A8 5600k Trinity, 8 GB's of Kingston HyperX 1600, and a WD "Blue" 1 TB HD , It quickly loaded and ran Ubuntu 13.10 perfectly.
It runs cool, quiet, quick, and displays flawless 1080p on a VISIO Razor.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good basic noard

Pros: good quality large heatsinks, This board is not as deep as other ATX boards which for me is great as this build will have many hard drives and there is room for them in my smallish case.

i used an older heatsink that was much larger than the stock A6-5400K and there was plenty of room.

The BIOS is well done

HDMI on board

its $50!

Cons: not really a con but the power button pins were near the center-bottom of the board and of course my power button wires didnt reach... thank you cheap case makers.

Other Thoughts: the mouse icons in BIOS have to be double clicked.

Im very happy with this board... hope it lasts for a while.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: The black color was what I wanted b/c it matched the inside of my case. Low profile for the north bridge and south bridge. Had all the slots I needed, which include pci express, one ram slot, fm2 cpu slot, and room for my aftermarket heatsink.

Cons: A couple of minor issues: Only has two ram slots. Only has one pci express slot. No slot for the case speaker (none that I am aware of). I ordered one two weeks ago, and when it came, it was defective. So I got it replaced at no expense, except for time. No way to get into bios via keyboard key.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a good product. Some limitations are present, but it does everything I need it to do, which is play games.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your feedback. It is appreciated. We need your feedback in order to improve the quality of our products and service.

The case speaker header can be found along the edge of the motherboard near the PCI slot. It is located between the COM and LPT headers and next to the SPDIF header. It is a 4 pin header, with 1 pin removed.

With ECS motherboards, the key to enter the BIOS is the Delete key.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this or any ECS products, please contact us. We are here to help.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: I have always used ECS motherboards for all my builds and have never been disappointed. I recently built a new system using this MB and gave away another system to a friend and that MB was an ECS K7S5A from 2000 and was still working great.

Cons: NONE

4 out of 5 eggsWin7, easy. XP, good luck.

Pros: Inexpensive, Radeon Graphics, three PCI slots.

Cons: Tough to install XP

Other Thoughts: I purchased this mobo to replace an outdated XP 3200+ based mobo which I have been using as a backend for Raspberry Pies. While I looked at LGA775 server mobos with five PCI slots (needed for four WinTV-PVR-500s and one GV-600 surveillance card), I decided that it was a better option to get an FM2 mobo. I'll glasly take the hit on two 500s.
Installation of XP is proving to be a nightmare.
Whether with a USB CD-ROM drive or an internal SATA one, I could not get past the Product Key entry stage of installation. It would always come back with the notorious "invalid key entered" message. This happened even if I slipstreamed SP3 & the Product Key (XP Pro 32bit, Retail) into the installation along with the A75F2-A2 drivers. (I tried everything, believe me, and I've been assembling/setting up computers for 25+ years.) There seems to be a hardware issue precluding the successful entry of the XP Pro Product Key.
(Out of curiosity, I installed Win7 Pro without issues of any sort.)
I am, I hope, in the midst of a successful install. I took my Atom-based carputer, and used it to install XP SP2. (Yes, the Product key was recognized!) I deleted the ENUM registry key, connected the SSD to the ESC mobo, then installed all but two of the drivers (there are two unknown devices) in safe mode; however, the system BSODs and reboots. I hope the SP3 updated results in a normal mode boot.
Yes, all this because of the GV-600 which will not work under Win7, Ubuntu, or LinuxMCE. Only XP.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: It was low cost.

Cons: Was DOA on two days after it arrived and refused to POST when my old motherboard had no problem...went straight back here for a refund. Am looking at getting the MSI AMD FM2-A75MA-E35 board to replace this one.

Other Thoughts: From now on...if any piece of hardware has less than 50-100 reviews...will not even consider it. This cost me extra time and money I should have never needed to wasted.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing with your motherboard. Prior to shipping from our factory, all motherboards are tested to ensure that they are working properly. A DOA issue can be caused by any of the main components, including CPU, memory, power supply and motherboard. If possible we would recommend testing the motherboard in the following fashion.

Remove the motherboard from the case, with only CPU, CPU fan, memory and power supply connected. Place on a flat non static surface. Reseat the CPU. Test with only one memory at a time and reseat memory. Ensure that both the 24 pin and 4 pin (ATX12V) connections are connected from the power supply. Connect the power button from the case or short the power pins (6 and 8) to power on the system. If still have any issues or questions, please contact us and we can work with you to find a solution.

When contacting us, you can refer to case #ECD13100410006

I or any of my team members here at technical support will be able to help you.
