Motherboards can look alike from afar, but once you begin building a computer system with
one you quickly realize where extra time has been spent to make your life
easier. A physical power and reset switch are easily accessible, at the back of the
system is a physical clear CMOS button.
E-SATA, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 (in blue)
and network jacks allow for many peripherals to be connected.
While USB 2.0's 480Mb/s maximum bandwidth was
enough for many years, USB 3.0 (above in blue) expands the bandwidth to a whopping 4.8Gb/s
(4800Mb/s) which is more appropriate for today's large mass storage
devices. Much of this speed improvement is due to USB 3.0 being a bi-directional
bus, meaning it can transfer information to a device and to a host computer
Overclocking features are represented in the ECS
H67H2-M BIOS as you might expect, but it remains to be seen how well Sandy
Bridge processors will handle being pushed past default Turbo Speed clocks. In
case something goes awry during overclocking, the onboard Port 80 card will
throw up an error code.
Stay tuned for the full review of the H67H2-M motherboard from
ECS when the NDA officially drops in early 2011.
