ECS P35T-A (V1.0) Design
The northbridge chip features a very small silver aluminum heatsink while the southbridge is cooled via an even smaller aluminum block. There are of course no heatpipes on this motherboard and ECS has placed the boards biggest heatsink over the MOSFET chips which we found a little strange. The board layout is fairly crammed and as we have come to expect from ECS over the years, components have just been placed fairly randomly.
That said there are no obvious design flaws to be found on the P35T-A. The I/O panel features six of the twelve USB 2.0 ports while there are two PS/2 ports, six audio jacks, a single eSATA port and one LAN port along with an old serial port. The board only features support for a 4-pin 12v power connector while it does support 24-pin ATX power connectors.
