ECS A785GM-M Motherboard Review


Power Management:

In the Power Management section, the user has the ability to change the ACPI Suspend Type, actions for when the power button is pressed, and resume operation for different devices like the mouse and LAN connection.
















PCI/PnP Setup / PC Health Status:

The PCI/PnP Setup section is where you can select which interface to boot first, either PCI or PCI-e. Next to that is the PC Health Status section, where you can monitor system temperatures and fan speeds. Also, you can set shutdown and warning temps to prevent a disaster should something fail.




Motherboard Intelligent BIOS II:

The last section is called the M.I.B. II, or Motherboard Intelligent BIOS II, which is where you can control of the overclocking functions such as CPU speed, multipliers, and the memory. On the ECS A785GM-M, you have more control over this board then on some previous ECS boards. For the memory, you can set the frequency based on the straps which, at the default reference clock, gives you 400MHz, 533MHz, 667MHz, or 800MHz. For the CPU, you can control the reference clock and the multipliers for unlocked processors, as well as the voltages of the memory, CPU, Northbridge and the Southbridge.
