ECS A990FXM-A DELUXE(1.0) AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works great! Dual Lan! Power button built onto the board so if your case button dies you still can power up. Has the best spacing for pciE 1X so my sound card isn't rigth up against my video card which gives more air flow to my fans on the video card. Good support from ECS! I highly recommend this board or any other ecs board. They all seem to put dual lan's on them and i love that since i have two cable modems and can swap over from one network to the other just by enabling one card and disabling the other without having to change cables. Prices are always fair. If you look at other boards they might have a higher price and look nicer to the eye, but are no better than this board right here. Maybe in some devices, but you will pay way more money for it!

Cons: Bios really needs to be fixed. If you look below at ecs's reply on my other reviews you can fix the 32 gig problem with the bios upgrade, but the bios settings don't like to stick. Here is how i got it to stick.

1. Set all your settings the way you want them.
2. Save it as a profile
3. hit save
4. Go back and look your settings will be back to default
5. Go back in and load the profile you saved
6. DO NOT SAVE IT!
7. Just go to the save menu scroll up and go to the EZ bios setup screen and hit boot. Then click your main os hard drive.

That is how i got my bios settings to stick. It is weird that every time you hit save or save and exit your settings go back to default, but those are the steps i took to get it working. Hope that helps anyone t hat gets the board.

Other Thoughts: ECS has been working with me very kindly to help me fix these issues and have been very professional about it. I would just like to ask them to possibly look into fixing the bios so it isn't such a big deal to get bios settings to stick. The Bios that supports 32 gigs is not listed on the mother boards page, but it is hidden on their page here:

Great support from ecs thank goodness because it is the only brand mobo i will buy for myself at least!

  • Verified Owner

Pros: Works great after bios upgrade for 32 gigs of ram working.

Cons: Bios settings will not save. I can set all settings hit save without leaving and go back to my settings they are all back to default. I have tried save and exit and save and reset also. Bios settings will not stick other than time and date.

Other Thoughts: Once i get the bios settings to stick and work will be a great mobo.

This review is from: ECS A990FXM-A DELUXE(1.0) AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: for 32 gigs cheap. I am waiting on new amd AM3+ 8 core processor to get here to tell you if it really works.

Cons: Not sure if it is a con or not, but i read one comment saying they could only get 24 gigs to work it in. I got this memory
