ECS Z270H4-I - PCSTATS.com ECS Z270H4-I

Quote: ”Before I poke at ECS, I want to point out that for this motherboard I can point out so many flaws because you will be hard pressed to find a Z270 ITX hovering around $100 that isn't ultra low budget or cheaply made. On top of that, components, marketing, and R&D costs money, and no company can get around this. Those factors have an impact on the final MSRP, which ECS has a very competitive advantage if you are looking for this particular form factor. However, not all is forgiven, as what stands out the most to me is placing the M.2 slot on the back. This in turn makes the feature a throwaway addition that serves little purpose. For starters, not all computer cases are made equally and from reviewing a few dozen and buying just as many of the years, I can tell you the standoffs for the motherboard are never the same. That means you will invariably come across one that has limited clearance. ITX cases tend to keep things very compact and a higher probability of short standoffs, which gives even more reason for concern. But say for the time being that height clearance is not a issue. You will then run into thermal throttling on practically any performance driven NVMe SSD because of lack of airflow on the backside and the inability to place a heat sink on the SSD.”
