ECS A770M-A Socket AM2+ Motherboard Review

Installation

I like to take the boards I review and Install them into a standard ATX case, so the user looking to make a potential purchase, can get a general feel if the layout is sufficient for their needs. Nothing sucks quite as bad as purchasing a motherboard, only to discover the port placement makes it impossible to install your hardware, or route your cables. This will be an ongoing feature of my reviews. I do not take to the time to perfectly route each wire, so it will not appear as clean as a fresh enthusiast level build.
