This review is from: ECS A970M-A DELUXE v1.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: when it works it run great and drivers auto installed with win7
Cons: first one failed with in first day after abut 8-10 reboots (windows update required) it stopped booting, no video no beeps nothing, reset cmos jumper, still nothing. RMA'd
When doing mail in rebate you have to record your serial number, on their site it states the serial starts with one letter and a string of number.. well no where on the upc code is there a number that matches those criteria so after scowering the MB I find they placed the serial number on the bottom of the last (bottom) pci slot... so you must remove the MB from the case to see it.... come to find out it starts with TWO letters and IS shown on the upc but not stated as SN: so I could have saved a lot of time if the website number 1: was faster than displaying one page per minute 2: showed and described their newer SN formula and 3:placed the Serial numbers where they can be seen AFTER installation.
and their support site is horrifically SLOW
I think they place the SN where you can find it and don't mark it as a serial number on the upc box is to stop you from doing mail in rebates and their site being slow to make you want to contact support, cause when I say slow I literally clicked a button and took a leak and got back before the page came up and I'm on 20+Mbps speed cable.
Other Thoughts: got my replacement and it booted up fine.
As a company I don't think I will be doing any more business with them.
after rebate only paying twenty or so I'll be fine replacing it with a better brand when it crashes and I do mean WHEN not if.
And Newegg needs to start allowing picture uploads for reviews and not just video.
Pros: fast card full 1080 and slightly larger 120hz 200FPS on just about every game I could throw at it.
Cons: cards started to fail one after another I started with 3 total
happened every time the system turned off the display over night, the next day it wouldn't "wake up" the display , had to hard reset and would no longer boot into windows. remove the last card on the chain and worked again for another night then happened all over again, when using the failed cards by themselves, there are red lines in a cluster down the center of the screen on both. so what ever failed on one happened on the other. I would think it is the memory that is the issue
Other Thoughts: I originally thought of using this to "mine" lite coins, but shortly after that thought I wanted to test out the system for monster gaming on a 60" led tv and within the week started having issues freezing and black screens. so mining may have been the way togo as I think it would have saved the memory from failing, I truly almost cried when they failed I thought I had to rma for replacement from xfx and be stuck with the brand model.
Thank goodness newegg is rma'ing and I will be purchasing lower model cards as I wasn't really touching the limits of these cards. might end up saving some big bucks.

Pros: even heat. wall mounted
Cons: Almost set fire to my home. starting with my newborn baby's room.
Other Thoughts: I have contacted the company twice emailing pictures of the after math and have been ignored for over a week now.
