ECS A990FXM-A AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good on Paper

Cons: BIOS layout is horrible.
- now the actual issue - I installed 16 GB RAM (4x4GB) on system properties, it shows 16, but says only 7.96 or so usable.
I tried http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978610 but didn't fix anything. I resit the RAM, didn't help, now the BIOS, you can't see the 4 slots, it just says 16GB RAM there. It's a GUI BIOS, and it sucks.
If you're wondering, I have Win7 x64 Pro.
see other thoughts for more.

Other Thoughts: Review for the item i bought initially - Hello_World http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135272

I was able to RMA this, and got this MB for some extra money. Last one had issues with RAM. and this one has issues with RAM as well.
First, I emailed them, they asked for some hardware info, i sent them that with screenshot of 16 GB but only 7.~GB usable.
Finally, I called them for help, and they said, "We tried to replicate the issue at our end and we got all 16 GB (on their own Mother board) so there is nothing they can do to help."
I asked the Rep, if he's seen this in other Motherboards, and he said yes, but those solutions won't apply and there is nothing they can do to help. I asked for solution, because he mentioned that there were twicks to registry but wouldn't even give me example.
He ended up suggesting it's my fault that the MB doesn't read 16gb and there is nothing they can do so stop calling.
Bottom line, ECS Motherboards have RAM issues, and I will not be buying them in future.

This review is from: ECS A885GM-A2 (V1.1) AM3 AMD 880G 5 x SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price and Specification on Paper

Cons: Many. see my previous post Keeps rebooting from Hello_World.
Now, I got reply from the ECS, they wanted me to do the usual which was already done. After that, they want to do RMA, however, the shipping cost and in return i would only get a refurb which will most likely have the same issue, so I am not doing it.

Other Thoughts: What makes it work,
Only 2 RAM sticks makes it work much better. I think it's the 3rd and the 4th one. Now, I have put 3rd RAM in the 1st slot and it's been working ok, no BSOD yet, but I do shutdown after use to prevent the BSOD from happening, since it's very inconvenience. As soon as the 4th one goes in you start getting the BSOD. G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB - Item#: N82E16820231311
Support was ok, I wish they'd just give me a different board or something, cause this board has many issues and I am not interested in getting a refurbished board. I will try to stay away from ECS in future.
