The ECS Elitgroup Z77H2-AX is well-equipped with features including wireless networking and Bluetooth support via the Atheros AR971L and AR3001 controllers which connect via USB 2.0. ECS employs a Texas Instruments USB 3.0 xHCI compliant host controller to further expand USB 3.0 capabilities. It offers three PCI ports, though only two are used, there are also two PCIe x1 slots and a Mini PCIe x1 slot, as well as two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots.

We hoped the ECS Z77H2-AX would offer a decent value. While it still might have potential, ECS has its work cut out. Not only did the board linger at the bottom of our performance charts, but we experienced a bug that prevented us from overclocking.

At this point, we would like to give our friends at ECS a well-deserved “Thank you” for allowing us the opportunity to review the Z77H2-AX motherboard. Out of the box, the board is a work of art with enough gold to garner a spot at Fort Knox. ECS made...

In April we published a round-up of 20 motherboards with Z77 chipsets compatible with the new Intel Ivy Bridge processors. Those CPUs weren't available yet at the time so we had to do the tests with the previous generation Sandy Bridge processors....

Elite Group has been manufacturing motherboards for quite some time. Past products have gotten a mixed bag of results but more competition always means better overall product for the end user. This also usually results in better pricing in the...

To the surprise of many, I really really like the ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX. Its BIOS is broken, and overclocking isn't easy at all, but its extra capability, and relatively high performance that can hang out with the bigger boys is not something that...

The appearance of the new Z77H2-AX Black Extreme motherboard from ECS is surprising and at the same time interesting, considering that we haven’t seen an all-gold appearance of the board from other manufacturers before. Besides the usual bundle...

ECS has a long standing of being an excellent OEM and prebuilt component but when it comes to enthusiasts it’s not really a name we here brought up very often due to its die hard allegiance to the basic OEM style products the community has grown so...

A very confusing release from Intel is their Z77 chipset and Ivy Bridge processors release. They where to be launched then delayed, then delayed further, then pushed forward again, then the processor is delayed and the motherboards all of the sudden...

I've already started playing with my ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX, and although I haven't covered performance here, let me say that clocking on this board is pretty impressive, and matches what I expect out of a high-end LGA1155 motherboard. Over the...

after a quick word on Lucid's VirtuMVP. All of the boards tested today support this technology. For anyone using a modern, discrete GPU from AMD or NVIDIA we suggest you do no install the software. AMD and NVIDIA's latest cards, on their own,...

Estamos frente a un motherboard realmente muy completo. El agregado de un chip PLX y la tecnología Virtu hacen que podamos tener una configuración gráfica de muy alta performance (SLI o CrossFire) y a la vez aprovechar todo el poder de los nuevos...

olarak nesi var değil, nesi yok diye sormak gerekiyor. Görünüşe bakılırsa eksik olan tek şey son nesil Intel Thunderbolt portu ve zaten bunu kullanan cihaz henüz yok. ECS'nin hakkını yemiyor ve...
