ECS Black Series A990FXM-A Socket AM3+ Motherboard Reviewed

That thing looks like a pain in the butt to overclock. :lol:

It's a shame that you had issues with the software because if MBs were rated on looks to me that would be a 10/10. Great review by the way, I loved the intro. Actually I'm tempted to buy that board solely because the increased 4pin power connector. I can't remember the number of times I almost ripped the motherboard out of the case because I couldn't reach that tiny little plug hidden behind all the MOSFET coolers :P No seriously I might actually get that board just for that reason.

I just bought a Gigabyte 990 XA for my wife's rid. I sure hope it overclocks easier than this one.

I've been using the board since I tested it and it seems to work fine, now. No issues with the boards after settings started to stick, just for whatever reason, during testing, it was a PITA. I'm still not a fan of the unnecessary UEFI GUI, and using the mouse can be troublesome (choppy movement, clicks not registering) but it suffices. Now that it works I rather like it, and I agree that its looks are ace.

 

Now if only ECS would get the board out... :whistling:
