5 out of 5 eggs Outstanding, Great Comeback for ECS!! 01/19/2013

This review is from: ECS Golden Z77H2-AX(1.0) LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great features, Easy to overclock a 3770k in (mine is at a modest 4ghz, using the Noctua NH-D14). Easy to understand BIOS, Onboard video will support use of both video ports even if using a video card, driver installation was painless and did not install any "Bloatware".

ALL PCI-E Lanes x16!!!!


Cons: XMP easiest way to get rated speeds out of memory, and 1/3 of the time, manual override of memory timings will not work, because the RAM timings menu requires you know title and verse, not just the 8-8-8-24, 2T, 1.65v that you would with other comparable boards. One PCI-E x1 blocked by large video cards, but easily bade up for by the PCI-E x1 above PCI-E x16 slot '0'.

Other Thoughts: This motherboard paired with:

Core i-7 3770k (4ghz multiplier OC, +0.100v)
Mushkin Blackline Enhanced CL8 1600mhz 2x4gb
Noctua NH-D14 Push/Pull
WD Velociraptor 150gb
Galaxy Geforce GTX 560 GC Anarchy Edition 2gb
Windows 7 Pro x64
Triple-screen, with two running on the Intel GPU, and one on the GTX 560. :P
