  • Summary: The ECS GANK MACHINE, simply put, impressed me like no other. As a board reviewer, I see the same thing over and over again: here's a socket, some slots, and a bunch of things to plug into, and that's that. With today's market so close, so contested, it is clear that board makers, from top to bottom, are scrambling to make their presence known by standing out from the crowd, and that's exactly what the ECS GANK MACHINE manages to do so well.
  • Pros: Packs a ton of features, but does not charge too much for it, Decent stock and overclocked performance, Ready for a test bench, or a 24/7 LEET GAMING build, Wide-open BIOS ready for tweaking to the limit, Good memory overclocking, Included WiFi/Bluetooth and mSATA slot, Fully functional dual AMI UEFI BIOS that includes mouse support and support for 3 TB+ drives
  • Cons: Limited number of fan headers, Small accessories package with few extras, No Intel Thunderbolt, Color scheme used may not appeal to all

ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme GANK Machine Motherboard Review

PC Perspective
16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: ECS seems to like gold and catchy titles. Building on the reputation of their previous generation Z77-based Golden Board series, ECS designed the Z87-based Z87H3-A2X Extreme to dominate the competition. ECS liberally spread the gold, giving all capacitors and connection pins a nice 24k coating. They even include a small fan hidden under the upper VRM heat sink for active heat pipe cooling.

Тест и обзор: ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme

10 September 2013
  • Summary: Материнская плата ECS Z87H3-A2X оставила смешанное впечатление. Самая материнская плата сделана на совесть, мы получили продуманную раскладку, оснащение платы выше среднего. Мы получили приемлемые результаты разгона, функций разгона достаточно, хотя изобилия нет. С положительной стороны отметим большое количество опций разгона на самой плате: множество кнопок, отладочный дисплей, точки прямого измерения напряжений, пусть и не в полном наборе.
  • Pros: Хорошая производительность с хорошей системой питания CPU и достаточным набором функций разгона, Приемлемое оснащение, в том числе семь портов SATA 6G и шесть портов USB 3.0, Поддержка PCI Express 3.0 на трёх слотах PEG, Хорошая производительность в целом, WLAN и Bluetooth, Слот mini-PCIe/mSATA
  • Cons: Проблемы с прошивкой BIOS, Высокое энергопотребление, Версия Bluetooth только 2.0, Высокая цена, плохая доступность в России
