ECS A990FXM-A ver 1.1 with three 16x PCIe slots for $105...too good of a deal to be good?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just found the new revision of the ECS A990FXM-A (no longer part of the Black Series) is out. Half the price that v1.0 sold for.
still has three 16x PCIe 2.0 slots, dual Realtek GbE nic, don't know if it still comes with Bluetooth receiver.
Revision 1.0 has a 6+1 VRM. don't know if they changed it with R1.1


ECS A990FXM-A ver 1.1 $104.99 after $10 rebate @TD Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
ECS webpage about board Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Can't find any reviews on it. Don't know if I should put it on my AMD motherboard deal list?

Any input is welcomed. Yeah ECS.headscratch.gif

This should still be a 6+1 board which should be good for overclocking.

The heatsink looks pretty beefy, and it should be on the same level as the M5A99FX PRO R2.0 except a bit cheaper.

Yes you should put that on the deal list smile.gif

Too bad its not a 8+2, but at this price you cant complain.

The Gigabyte 970A UD3 is around the same price with an 8+2, but it loses out on the muti GPU crossfiring capabilities.
