This review is from: ECS Black Series A790GXM-A AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard


Decent board overall, nothing mind blowing but the quality is good with one notable exception.


One year and 11 months after purchase I discovered that one of the tabs on the CPU heatsink mounting bracket had broken. Very strange considering the computer never gets move so there was no chance for shock damage.

I contacted the company to RMA the board. At first things were fine. The guy seemed nice enough and the process was getting underway. However after a week I stopped hearing from them. So I called back, I heard him mumble something about it being out of warranty but he'll see what he can do. That's a load because on the site itself the board is warrantied for 2 years labor and 3 years parts, so it was still under warranty for both. After a month, which by then the warranty for labor had run out, I still had not heard from them.

All I needed was a new bracket, to fix the board, and was becoming very frustrated. Eventually a friend gave me one and I fixed it myself

Other Thoughts:

So with the the exception f the bracket the board has been fine for over 3 years now. However, I would never, ever buy an ECS product again with service like that. They had a chance to make me a returning customer and they blew it. I'm sticking with brands that actually stand behind their products like Gigabyte EVGA.
