To install the ECS G33T-M2 motherboard, you'll need to remove your current motherboard. Since it is a MicroATX form factor, you'll need to adjust the motherboard standoffs inside your case. Once it's in place, screw your motherboard securely into place and install your processor, heatsink, memory modules, and 24-pin power cable. This motherboard does not have IDE ports, so you'll need to make sure you have a SATA hard drive and CD drive handy. Don't forget to plug in all of your front panel connectors too!
The ECS G33T-M2 uses the American Megatrends, Inc BIOS. You'll notice that the BIOS has most of the standard BIOS features that you'll find on most motherboards, but I'm going to go ahead and examine the options and comment on the features that stick out for me.
Standard CMOS and Advanced Setup Functions:
In these two options, you'll see the common options that you'll find on every motherboard's BIOS, but in a different order. In the Advanced Setup, they have a few more options integrated, such as Thermal Management.
Advanced Chipset Setup:
In the Advanced Chipset Setup option, you'll find that you can change your DRAM frequency from 800MHz to 667MHz if desired, among other things.
