    Default ECS A970M-A Deluxe Motherboard Review

    ECS Elitegroup has been around for more then 2 decades and is known to provide our consumers with some of today's most budget friendly motherboards. While ECS has made some extensive improvements over the last few years with its style and design, we also continue to see ECS provide some "easy on money" type products. Today we have the opportunity to look at the ECS A970M-A Deluxe Motherboard. This motherboard is budget friendly while also providing some aesthetic enhancements. The gold and white mixed with the black PCB really makes this board stand out, but the colors alone aren't the only thing that makes this board stand out... As we move forward we get to show you something new that we haven't see with most of today's motherboards. Let's dive in! First, here's a little about ECS Elitegroup.

    Thanks! yea, while not the best OCing board, it was still a good out of the box motherboard. For the price, its nothing to complain about. while the colors are not the best IMO, but still not bad.

    Ok, now I'm pissed off, I was the first person to respond to here, and my post is missing once again. I'm going to have to contact the higher ups and have them find out who's deleting my Posts & Threads. Anyway, good review Kenny, it may not be the best looking board, but it gets the job done right out of the box !
