ECS GF7100PVT-M Review

» Discuss this article (0)


This ECS GF7100PVT-M MicroATX motherboard is equipped with onboard video. Therefore, I'm going to be testing this motherboard without a video card and with a video card. I used the DVI-out port on the motherboard instead of the VGA port. To get a better idea for how this motherboard compares to some of today's motherboards, I'll be comparing it to the Foxconn Mars. Both of the motherboards were compared with the same equipment so that the playing field was level.


Testing Setup:

Comparison Motherboards:



Overclocked settings:

  • Processor: Intel Q6600 333 x 9
  • Sytem Memory: Mushkin XP2 6400 4-4-4-12

As stated previously, the BIOS equipped with this motherboard had no voltage control for the CPU and no multiplier change; only pre-determined FSB was available. I chose the highest rated FSB that this motherboard supports and that was 1333MHz, which when paired with a stock multiplier of 9, brought the CPU's clock speed to 3.0GHz. Being the huge overclocker that I am, I was very disappointed that this was the furthest I could push this motherboard.
