3 out of 5 eggs Good budget board with some issues 01/20/2008

This review is from: ECS A770M-A AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Excellent price. Great features for this price point. Guaranteed Phenom compatibility.

Cons:

Fan retention mechanism does not have an underplate. A high pressure heat sink clip could damage the board or pop out the retention device. Seems to have a fairly high DOA rate. Luckily mine has not shown any stability issues.

Other Thoughts:

I was looking for a inexpensive board for a new computer build. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, but wanted something that was upgradeable to Quad Core. I chose this board with a AMD 5000+ Black (running stable at 3100 Mhz default voltage). I bought my own retention bracket with an underplate. The board lives up to my expectations.
