needs bios update for ivy bridge
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.
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.
