5 out of 5 eggs Nice thin-mini-itx 04/17/2013

This review is from: ECS H61H2-TI LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Truly is a "thin mini-itx" form factor; any case that states it's limited to the Intel DH61AG Intel DQ77KB motherboards this motherboard *should* fit. I say this with caution as it appears the location of the CPU slot is identical to that of the Intel boards - meaning you *should* be able to use the low profile Intel cooler with this board and other cases problem free. I paired this with the Silverstone PT12B case, Intel HTS1155LP heatsink, i3-3220 processor and it all fits flawlessly. The cost of this board is also nearly half that of the Intel DH61AG and even more so than the Intel BOXDQ77KB. Two Mini-pci connectors. USB 3.0 slots.

Cons:

Board only has 2 SATA ports (so does the Intel DH61AG)
SATA ports are only SATA 3Gb/s
Resetting bios returns SATA mode to default IDE-mode (AHCI is probably where it should always default).
Weird jumper config required to update bios - make sure you visit the website and follow the instructions closely if you plan to update bios - and unplug power when you reset the jumper pin or else the board will boot up (weird).
Reliability at this stage is unknown.

Other Thoughts:

This is a great little motherboard and compared to its intel branded counterparts it is quite the bargain. With any ECS motherboard I expect some sort of quirks - hopefully they don't lead to instabilities. 4 SATA ports would be ideal: one for the solid state drive, one for the big slow storage drive and another for the blu-ray drive. That would be ideal for a HTPC which is what this board is being used for. This and the HD homerun prime are the foundation of a solid low profile Digital Cable Tuner with many other media options. I would have rated this board a solid 4-star rating had it not been for the price. Expect some quirks, but nothing out of control with this board.
