ECS A85F2-A Golden motherboard review -
Let me restate this, this is an entry-level But you'll have lots of slots: 2 x PCI Express x16 slot, 3 x PCI Express x1 slot, and 2 x PCI slots. Your LAN is managed by a Realtek 8111E Gigabit LAN Fast Ethernet Controller, audio is managed through a VIA 8-Ch High Definition audio CODEC. The board has a standard ATX form factor with a size of 305mm x 220mm.
Intricate little details then. I'm using a special lens here to zoom in a little.
By using that macro lens we can see how cool the gold theme really is.
And check that, even 8-pin CPU power, the board uses a top tier IR PWM and Renasas MOSFETs.
Up-to very small detail gold has been implemented whereever possible, I don't think that entry level motherboards have looked this good. Current pricing on newEgg for this board is just $126.99 USD.
For this article we test and review the ECS A85F2-A Golden motherboard. This motherboard is intended for AMDs Trinity APU architecture processors which offer tremendous value for money when it comes to the massive features this cute little motherboard offers. ECS delivered the Golden edition, meaning a black motherboard with gold themed components. And that sure;y makes a difference aesthetics wise.
