Closer Look:

The ECS HDC-I BIOS is a little more on the simple side. Since this is not a performance and tweaking board, the BIOS has only the standard slew of options. The main menu contains your basic language and date & time options.













The first item on the advanced tab is the LAN configuration, which simply allows you to enable and disable the onboard LAN. Next is the PC health status where you can view the system temperature, voltages, and fan speeds. The CPU configuration tab shows you the processor specifications and current speeds. SATA configuration is just that; you can change the SATA port modes and enable or disable ports. Lastly, USB configuration allows you to turn on and off the regular USB, USB 3.0, and Bluetooth adapter.



You can control the internal audio, integrated graphics memory, and chassis intrusion settings from the north and south bridge menus.


The Frequency/Voltage Control tab sounds quite promising in the overclocking department. However, it only has basic memory options.


With the BIOS settings out of the way, let's get to the testing.
