ECS A990FXM-A Socket AM3+

1 December 2011
  • Summary: We spent a couple of weeks with the ECS A990FXM-A before beginning our review. As always, we do spend a fair bit of time using the board for daily tasks and gaming to get a real feel for the board, and to look for any possible issues users might encounter. During the testing period with the ECS A990FXM-A, we encountered several issues that left us dumbfounded, and required close investigation as to pinpoint the source of the problem.
  • Pros: Clean, color-themed and traditional layout, EFI bios with support for 3TB+ drives, Fully functional UEFI BIOS, including mouse support, VRM capable of 300W+, near double AMD CPU TDPs
  • Cons: Absurdly high power consumption, Voltage applied to CPUs and memory is too high, Crossfire limited by slot configuration, leaving no space between dual VGAs for airflow, VRM is not the most efficient, and does put out a fair bit of heat, increasing case cooling requirement, Board components in several instances not fully utilized/functional, Memory dividers not working properly when overclocked.

ECS A990FXM-A Black Series Motherboard Review

8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: A number of years ago ECS were very much a brand associated with no-frills low cost boards. The majority of their products focused on getting the basics right and ensuring that consumers had a stable product but at the cost of flexibility. That all changed with the release of their Black Series products though as the rage was designed to take on the likes of ASUS and Gigabyte in the enthuasiast area.

ECS A990FXM-A review

The Guru of 3D
18 August 2011
  • Summary: Just like the other 990FX reviews allow me to split up this conclusion into two segments, the AMD chipset and the motherboard. We'll start off with the chipset. To be honest we expected more features and innovation in the actual 990FX chipset, pretty much 990FX is a petit overhaul of the 890FX, only very subtle small changes can be found.

ECS A990FXM-A Black Extreme - ekstremno zagrijavanje

PC Ekspert
22 June 2012
  • Conclusion: ECS FXM-A Black Extreme je bazirana na posljednjem AMD-ovom 990FX čipsetu. Već na prvu loptu možemo vidjeti kako je layout ploče dobro odrađen, a hlađenje je ono što se najviše ističe. Radi se o masivnom NB/VRM heatsinku koji je heatpipeom povezan sa southbridge blokom. Unatoč svojoj masivnosti, svoj posao radi slabije/lošije izvedbe regulacije napona ne odrađuje najbolje, dapače, ploča ima velikih problema sa pregrijavanjem, pogotovo prilikom overclockinga .
  • Pros: Layout, bundle, PCI utor, onboard tipke za paljenje i reset računala, dva LAN porta, onboard S/PDIF izlaz, debug display, dva eSATA 6Gb/s konektora, Bluetooth, 3.5" USB3.0 modul.
  • Cons: Pretjerano zagrijavanje unatoč masivnom hlađenju, nema FireWire, premalo konektora za ventilatore, performanse, samo jedan BIOS čip, nerazrađen i nezrel BIOS, mušičavo ponašanje prilikom overclockinga , cijena.

ECS Elitegroup A990FXM-A

23 February 2012
  • Summary: El motherboard que nos proporciono ECS Elitegroup cumplió con nuestras expectativas de un motherboard confiables y con buen rendimiento, se cuido mucho la parte estética, principalmente la de los disipadores y el packaging que es lo primero que veremos a la hora de adquirir un motherboard. El panel I/O es muy completo contando con gran cantidad de puertos USB tan útiles el día de hoy.
  • Pros: Estética destacable.
  • Cons: BIOS que no permite OC estable con el procesador utilizado.
