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

Pros: The specs on this board are very appealing, dual gigabit ethernet, 32GB of ram etc.

Cons: The specs do not match what the board is capable of doing when shipped. You will only find this out, after you search through the support site, inevitably give-up and try to contact tech-support, along the way leading you to the FAQ page where (at the bottom) there is a link to download the "service" bios to enable 32GB capability (the max we ever got out of it was 3 sticks totaling 24GB). Now, when we realized the ram wasn't working at full cap, I looked at the two bios updates on the bios page and neither one mentioned ram, nor matched the "special" package in the FAQ. They have ZERO support for updating the bios without an operating system, so we put windows 7 x64 on the machine. We ran the "special" bios program only to have it say it is incompatible with this version, check if your system is 32bit or 64bit (btw it doesn't bother to tell you which one it needs). I then used the eBLU online bios updater. It said it updated the bios but on startup the bios version num didn't change

Other Thoughts: It's a shame this board doesn't work as advertised. The data sheet has everything we wanted to build into our kiosk but now we're going to have to design it out.
