Other Thoughts: I've always used Asus and Gigabyte boards. They haven't been prevailing for me lately so I'm going to try MSI on my next few builds.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small board, USB 3.0, built well.
Cons: No DVI but that isn't a big deal.
Other Thoughts: I was a little skeptical buying an ECS board since I've always been a regular Asus, Gigabyte and MSI supporter. Given the reviews on the other MicroATX FM1 boards, this one stuck out the most. I didn't have to set manual RAM timings as others did. I bought two of these at once along with a A8-3850 and 2x4GB Kingston HyperX RAM. Everything runs smoothly. BIOS has simple options for a simple board. POSTs quickly and performs well. I will definitely buy ECS again!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M4N68T-M V2 AM3 NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Seemed like a nice mid-range board.
Cons: Onboard video would intermittently go hazy lines of colour would run down the screen. It would also completely randomly lock up. This was a new system build and I tested with all known good parts and it was narrowed down to a bad RAM slot.
Other Thoughts: That was the first and last time I cheap out on a mobo:) Newegg RMA process went very smoothly and received my refund within a week!READ FULL REVIEW
