4 out of 5 eggsI am writing this because...

Pros: - Good placement.
- Supports high speeds of RAM.
-Cool temperatures, even while overclocking an AMD A6 cpu at 4.5ghz and my video card is oc'ed as well.
- Haven't tested the dual graphics, but it's supposed to boost the capability of your graphics card in unison. I hope to try a 7770hd with it as it only supports radeon (I have an old Nvidia GTX460).

Cons: - Doesn't have USB 3.0.
- Still haven't got UEFI to configure, but that's probably my fault.

Other Thoughts: I think that this card has been getting an unfair bad wrap. The bios is good and intuitive, and I have never had an easier time overclocking. Definitely recommended. Get this or the D3 and you shan't be disappointed. (Got it for around 40 bucks with shipping on sale). For the price, it's awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks so far

Pros: HDMI out has pci slot for to upgrade video 4 sata it makes a great daily pc or for htpc

Cons: no usb 3.0 but i dont run anything that requires that speed anyway

Other Thoughts: i haven't had any issues yet. This is a basic MB with enough ports to run a decent computer setup ssd, 1tb hd, dvd/bd drive. If you're hardcore gamer or video editor may want to look elswhere. If you want an a computer with all your files and email, you should be fine

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.

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.
