Closer Look:

To assist users in getting the most out of their experience, ECS has included several utilities. These utilities are designed to make your computing life easier and without wasting time. We are going to be looking at what each one is and how it will help you out with your ECS A890GXM-A2 system.

 

ECS Easy BIOS Live Update:

The ECS BIOS Live Update program allows you to update your BIOS quickly and painlessly without having to download a file and boot your computer using a floppy drive, which is a pain since who has a floppy these days, right? The utility will download the update and install it for you, should you need one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ECS Easy Driver Live Update:

The ECS Driver Live Update utility will scan your computer and let you know what board you have installed. It will then provide you with the Internet page for you to download any driver updates that you may need.

 

 

ECS Easy Green Saver:

ECS Easy Green Saver lets you manually or automatically throttle down your system to save on power and energy waste. You can adjust your speed and create a custom setting to allow you to save all the "Green" you can.

 

 

ECS Easy Overclock:

The ECS Easy Overclock utility allows everyone from novice to expert to get the most out of their system. With this utility, you have the controls to adjust the reference clock as well as the voltages of system it impacts. Not only can you overclock with it, but you can monitor your system as well. There is a utility called Easy Smart Fan that works in conjunction to control your fan speeds and allows you to silence your PC or provide maximum cooling.

 

 

 

ECS eJiffy:

ECS eJiffy is an instant-start OS that provides you the ability to quickly boot your system into this stripped down OS and perform tasks such as web browsing and instant messaging without having to wait for your full Windows or Linux OS to load. This allows you to get online and check mail or update a contact quicker when you need to be on the run.

 

 

 

 

Now that we have seen the utilities, we can take a look at the BIOS.
