Excellent board, runs Windows 8.1 Pro flawlessly. Great self protection scheme. As good or better than big name boards

  • Summary: I have had this motherboard for a couple of years and it absolutely is bullet proof. I run 5 hard drives on it and have had it switch on continuously with 2 gfx cards and two monitors during that time. I just upgraded its case to a Corsair Vengeance C70.

Buyer Beware

  • Summary: Worked well for 2 days. Nice GUI for the UEFI, good board features for the price, On day 3 of use, smoke filled the room and the board quit. It looks like the liningsunder one of the heatsinks had burned.

Great board if you catch it on sale, but has some shortcomings

  • Summary: I am going to start by saying I am using a Phenom II X6 1055T, so I do not know if FX processors will have the same issue I have. I also cam from a Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 looking to upgrade to Vishera on the cheap.

Decent board

  • Summary: This board works like the a970ma should have, this board has more features but works better even though it has the same exact bios. Stuff just works good on this board . Also all the features make it worth it. the negative side is ECS they almost never release new bios to address small problems.

  • Summary: Which is a piece of s***. I don't *want* to curse in a review, but this shabby thing has got to be the worst motherboard I've seen in ages. It didn't come with much: an sli cable (no crossfire), two sata cables, and a cd/manual. No screws, nothing cool.

Great for the money

  • Summary: I bought this board to replace the Asus 990fx Sabertooth rev 2 that I have been having warranty issues with for over a month. I researched this board by going to the ECS web site. Their site indicates that the board has one channel of IDE support, (enough for 2 DVD drives).
