Enthusiast level motherboards tend to go all out with their component quality and feature sets which, consequently, pushes up the price tag on the very central piece to a PC. Thankfully one company manages to keep costs under control.

The ECS A890GXM-A 890GX Motherboard sports AMD’s latest graphics infused 890GX northbridge and SATA 6G toting SB850 southbridge for a tasty combination. Overclockers Club has the review:

The ECS A890GXM-A arrived with a lot of potential and in many ways it did not disappoint. The new Qooltech III heatpipe cooler worked very well, keeping the Northbridge efficiently cooled, which also helped decrease the CPU temperature due to there being no rising heat coming from the chipset. The new implementation of the 890GX/SB850 was great, with the USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 connectors working perfectly, as well as adding support for AMD’s upcoming six core processors.

A nice offering but here’s hoping they square away any overclocking issues.
