Read full details.
This review is from: ECS H61H2-M3 (V2.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Inexpensive (I got it for $30 AR) and reasonably good build quality for the price. The UEFI bios is nice, though a little fidgety and temp monitoring for the cpu was way off (-25 C?!).
Cons: My unit came with the original bios and would not recognize the ivy bridge processor that i'd purchased to go with it. I was able to pull a sandy bridge cpu from another pc to get into the bios to update. Also, there is no bios-based update tool. The process is somewhat complicated, and the information online is not entirely accurate.
Also note there are limited SATA slots and no PATA slot. You can tell this from the product image, but still worth mentioning.
Finally, no SATA3 or USB3 but that's the chipset. If you need those features, you shouldn't be looking at H61 motherboards.
Other Thoughts: In addition to not recognizing ivy bridge, you will not be able to run memory at ddr3-1600 unless you update the bios. Once I managed to update the bios, however, everything worked fine.
We are sorry to hear about the issue you experienced with your CPU and BIOS. Normally this should not be an issue as we verify our inventory and update if needed, prior tot shipping to Newegg. We would still like for you to contact us so we can look into and address your concerns with the UEFI BIOS.
