This review is from: ECS B85H3-M7 LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Perfect B85 chipset board for my build that worked the first time I fired up. Recognized my new SSD, hard drive and other components with no issues. The BIOS for the board is pretty indepth if you want to poke around in it. The documentation is solid and the driver disc that it came with worked fine for installing needed components. I recommend not installing the Utilities components as they are just secondary software not needed to drive any components but I suppose nice extras.
Cons: I had a couple of issues. The first was that the board itself isn't very clear on identifying the different pin connects for the front I/O panel hookups like the power LED or rest button. Even with the documentation, you need to know that white wires are negative and colored are positive. I could see this being a little confusing if you're new the PC building scene.
The other issue which I was a little concerned with was when I installed my 270X it laid directly on the wiring connects for the front I/O panel kinda 'squishing' them. Time will tell in the long run if this has any negative impact. A shorter card may not have this issue.
Other Thoughts: Overall a solid inexpensive Intel B85 board that is working perfectly for my new gaming rig!
