2 out of 5 eggsSimple, Inexpensive

Pros: Came with 2 SATA cables to accommodate my Optical and HDD. Booted up just fine, recognized RAM.

Cons: Case Speaker port has 3 pins <1X11> and no matter which way i seat the 4-slot case speaker, the BIOS never beeps at me :(
I cannot get the Sleep Mode settings to allow my keyboard/mouse to wake the machine - have researched and toubleshooted to no avail.

Other Thoughts: I submitted a help request on ECS's website over a week ago to help me with these issues... no response.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing with your motherboard. For the speaker pin header issue, please double check the location of speaker header. It is located next to the SPDIF header (white color). For the KB and MO wake up issue, please make sure that "Wake up by KB & MO" is enable inside the BIOS. Sometimes, the power setting inside the OS will affect this feature also.

Normal response time from our website is 1 bussines working day. Please kindly let us know your case number in order to investigate this issue.

I or any of my team members here at technical support will be able to help you.
Our hours are Mon-Fri 9am-6pm PST.

Thank you,

1 out of 5 eggsjunk!!!! stay way 2 doa p o s!

Pros: none!

Cons: 2 motherboards dead out of box. no beeps no video no nothing!!! junk!

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.

Ensure you are using an AMD APU or an AMD CPU plus a discrete video card. An AMD CPU alone will not display video. AMD APU includes the video on the processor.

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.

I or any of my team members here at technical support will be able to help you.
Our hours are Mon-Fri 9am-6pm PST.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget board

Pros: Worked perfectly out of the box. Some minor adjustments to the BIOS and it was all set. Threw in a cheap dual core processor and it works great as a HTPC/web browsing machine. HDMI works flawlessly, I watch 1080p video on my TV.

Cons: Not free

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK!

Pros: None

Cons: D.O.A.
Couldn't return it because didn't get to install it until after the 30 day return period. Manufacturer didn't even want to deal with me. Claimed I "missed installed it". I've installed dozens of MBs and never had this problem.

Other Thoughts: Run from ECS! Just had another one of their MBs fry on me the other day less than a year old.

3 out of 5 eggsIts "OK" nothing special

Pros: Worked out of the box. No issues detecting CPU, memory, peripherals. Came with a bunch of screws, and extra in case any get lost.

Decent BIOS options, but just not good enough. (see cons)

Cons: Board does NOT run my Gskill F3-1600C11S-4GNT at its recommended specs, 1600 11-11-11-28. Currently running the memory at 1333 9-10-10-24 with no problems, but I paid for 1600.

Board will NOT POST when memory is switched to "1600" even with the timings loosened. The problem may be due to the following issue:

Board does NOT have provisions for memory/CPU voltage management.

BIOS is a little confusing for someone who is used to dealing with higher end boards, but that was to be expected.

Other Thoughts: There may be a setting I overlooked, however it is unlikely. Hopefully ECS sees this and can throw me some good pointers on how to get this memory to stabilize at 1600 MHz.

Currently paired up with an A4-4000 and it's cruising along nicely, even with the memory at 1333.

Good board, just not good enough.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for the price!

Pros: HDMI works! Everything works... Small form factor compared to the board I replaced. Bios and drivers were latest versions, no updating! USB keyboard and mouse were detected and functioned at bootup prior to OS install.

Cons: 4-pin CPU connector is in a bad location... I had to remove a case fan in order to attach it. 1866 RAM is set at 1600... I'll fix that later.

Other Thoughts: Using this with a 5400K APU and other assorted inexpensive components on Win7 Home 64bit.

3 out of 5 eggsok mobo

Pros: works well, no serious issues so far

Cons: HDMI doesn't work, plug might be grounding on the i/o shield, it didn't line up with the board well. VGA works fine though so I'm just going to use that instead.

2 out of 5 eggsFrom 5 Stars to 2 Stars

Pros: Great priced board. Micro ATX is very compact.

Cons: I just went into the BIOS to adjust RAM speed for some new RAM I just bought and pow. The graphics in the BIOS appear / disappear w/o any consistency. I tried to select RAM speed and the entire selection menu disappeared. While moving through the menu, none of the dialog boxes would stay on their page and would continue to stack as I navigated. Wash, rinse, repeat... I got so frustrated just trying to navigate through the BIOS, it almost ended up in the backyard. I have the latest BIOS for this board, so I'm pretty much *&^%$ BY ECS again to keep the same old RAM speed with my new sticks. VERY disappointed and kicking myself AGAIN for even thinking about ECS as a reliable technology provider.

Other Thoughts: eeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
