ECS have become ever more popular as of late, offering up some of the latest and greatest features on a variety of boards, for the lowest possible price. This obviously applies to a huge market of consumers wanting the best bang for buck, yet not skimping on quality. ECS have jumped on the Sandy Bridge bandwagon lately and have developed motherboards based on the 1155 socket on both H67 and P67 chipsets.

Today sees us taking a look at the H67H2-M Black Series board, which packs all of the top features for a H67 board with support for the latest generation Intel processors, a reasonable amount of expansion slots, SATA 3 and two USB 3.0 ports. Among these features, ECS also claim top build quality with all solid capacitors and 15μ gold contacts for better protection and durability.

    Nice review, I like the colour scheme. It is a no frills board and if it comes in cheap would be great for a HTPC/ Server.

    Personally, if you're looking at HTPC usage, i'd get the Zotac H67-ITX WiFi which i will be reviewing soon 🙂
