Cons: Would give this no eegs if I could. After installing Windows 7, I started installing windows updates, the system screen goes blank after a while. Ctrl-alt-del - no response, pressed the reset button - no response, held in the power button - no response. Had to shut off the power @ the power supply, restarted the system, windows says not shut down properly (duh) so I tell it to restart normally. Systems is back up, for a while, then black screen again. Repeat, repeat r...
Pros: This board is perfect for a budget build. Nice, solid board. Not to much much to say worked great out of the box and was cheap. I do like the BIOS, works well for me.
Cons: Minor flaws in the packaging. There is a misprint (On the top it says fm1 socket, but it is actually an FM2 as stated on other areas) on the box and a few misspellings (pakage contents) in the manual. Would have appreciated mounting hardware as well, as I don't always buy a new case for each build. Has a little more bloatware on install than I like.
Pros: This is my first ECS product since a bad experience with them way back in the Socket A days. Put it all together, turned it on, and it fired right up. Seems to be stable with my A6-5400K and G.SKILL DDR3 1866. Socket FM2 clips are identical to Socket AM2/3 which is useful for the bad FM2 coolers.
Cons: Didn't detect my RAM speed and timings, but few motherboards do. UEFI BIOS using a mouse is pretty clunky. Configurable options in BIOS are very few.
Pros: good idea as long as it doesn't come with bent pins
Cons: I put this in my brother's pc, it overheats ever 2-5 minutes shutting the pc down. It even came with 3 bent pins on the corner which I think may be the problem but until I get the heat-sink that I ordered (which is still in packaging after 4 days) I will not know if it actually is the problem
Pros: This Motherboard replaced my old one that only supported 4 gb of ddr2. I put an A10 5700 with this, and so far so good. I no its only been a day or two. Ill have to wait. This thing fit sooo nicely into my case. In addition I put just one 4gb Corsair Vengence 1600mhz, another will go in later. I booted up left 4 dead 2, and got 25-45 frames on max settings, res of 1366 x 768 - my screens max :(.
