ECS H61H2-I v1.1 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs great motherboard 01/31/2014

This review is from: ECS H61H2-I v1.1 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: it works....really has solid state on whole board, easy to set up because there is not much to it BUT has every thing you need for a good computer or home theater rig

Cons: must update bios right off the bat.....I was able to get 7 installed to do it.....no real help on there main web site on how to do this but there is a utility with the rom you down load from there web site( run it BEFORE you even install anti virus or hook it to internet) because the drivers will NOT work until the bios is updated......this is where it gets CRAZY the drivers on the included disc worked BUT the CURRENT drivers from website did NOT work, so get the bios current from the website and use the disc IF the website ones don't work for you.......on board video ports are NOT mounted well and will break with one good hit to them(even a 30 dollar video card is better then on board with this)

Other Thoughts: I DO NOT OWN IT but I was the guy that used it to build a mini system for someone to do photo shop on( I built it and installed all software) NOT a gaming motherboard so don't even think about it for that BUT for a small every day computer or even a small server this a good motherboard

PARTS LIST FOR MY RIG
this mombo
intel 2020 dual core at 2.9 ghz
G skill 4gb 1866 single stick memory(running at 1333 because of CPU) and cheaper then a 4gb stick of 1333
evga gt 640 2gb video card
evga 500 watt psu
coolermaster elite ITX case
western digital blue 1 terabyte harddrive
asus DVD burner
total 405 bucks for just parts......not bad for what she got to work on and better then what you could get retail for even 600 bucks

Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: when put together VERY solid, has the room for real video cards, NO funny slim dvd drives, easy to rip the face off and clean the fan, front panel USB 3.0, CHEAP.....BUT NOT a cheap feel, REAL powder coating, 2 fans included in the only places for fans, full size PSU's can be used, comes with mounts for up to (4) 2.5 harddrives (laptop or ssd) and that's NOT listed in any writings on the case(you can get 2 on each 2.5 tray BUT you MUST use straight sata cables NO right angled cables) or room for 3 normal harddrives, could make a great little server case

Cons: flimsy when apart top/side panel will bend very easy ONLY when apart though, no motherboard tray risers mount right to the bottom panel, would be nice if it was a 3 slot on the PCI opening for huge cards like the 680 or 780 with the 3 fan coolers....NO Place for water cooling and not much space for a real CPU cooler...remember that going in to this....modular power supply is must for the case, I only used (1) 3 port sata cable, main 24 pin and 4 pin CPU plug for the hole system, the rest of the wires ended up in a huge bunch zip tied to the top frame rails.....one other thing....10 inch sata cable should be all you need UNLESS you sata ports are on the back of the motherboard by the rear I/O panel

Other Thoughts: I DO NOT OWN IT.......I built a rig for a lady to do photo shop using this case..(so im speaking from building with this case and being the one to pick it out for the build{yes ordered from newegg})....GREAT CASE I want to build a gaming rig out of one BUT I have to find a real way to cool the cpu first.....

EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1461-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: runs all games on high if your at 1600x900.....1080p runs great but some games need to be backed off a little from the highest settings....plays BIOSHOCK(2013) and TOMBRAIDER(2013) on max setting in 1080p at plus 40fps.....at 1600x900 over 60fps.....I have seen them for 50 bucks used on some ones list(hint) I had a 9600 gso at first, then a gtx 260 216core to this.......gso lowest setting, 260 all high setting but none of them were direct x 11 options......this EVERY THING TO MAX right out of the gate!!!......if you have a card under it, it will run better......beats a 295 and is on par with a 480 on most games but uses half the power in a smaller case......if you find it for 50 and can get 30 for your old card its gold!!! GREAT FOR MINI CASES

Cons: fan ONLY works right AFTER you use "MSI after burner" to set up a fan profile(you set the temps to change the RPM on the fan keeping it at temps you want) free software.....card will overclock but not much past 900 core and 1100 memory.......

Other Thoughts: you must be running a quad core with this to game.....
my system
AMD 555 unlock all 4 cores clocked at 3.7ghz from 3.2
coolermaster 212 CPU cooler never gets over 140f full load
ASUS M5A97 mombo
