ECS X58B-A Review


Closer Look:

One area I was disappointed in was the driver disc. Usually this part of the process is pretty simple. Put in the disc, let the auto run spool up the disc and install the drivers and utilities. Unfortunately, the driver disk software is not 64-bit OS ready so I had to explore the disc and manually dig for the drivers I needed to install. As more people move to a 64-bit OS, this could present problems for the average user. One saving grace is that Vista picked up the drivers and I just needed to download later versions to get the most from the X58B-A.


















There is just not a whole lot to show in this section this time around.
