This review is from: ECS A890GXM-A2(2.0) AM3+ AMD 890GX 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I like that it has Integrated video chipset. I very much like the reset and power light up buttons on the board, very helpful. Another feature of this board was the bios reset button on the back of the board with the ports. It's been very helpful to fix mistakes when and if the board won't boot.
Cons: So far, the only thing I noticed that might be situation to me, is that the NIC might not be strong enough for what I'm using it for. But a card can be bought to fix this. Another thing that really irritates me is the so-called 'Easy' bios. I'm new to overclocking so I had to do some research. Once I did, I went into the Bios to see what I can do. There were no BUS or CPU multipliers, I wasn't able to change the frequency of anything but the memory and the reference clock speed. Being that there are little to no tutorials on overclocking this board in particular, I'm kind of at a loss. I bought an Unlocked AMD processor for a reason. Any help with my problem would be appreciated.
Other Thoughts: Overall, good board for what I need for.READ FULL REVIEW
