Dropped like a block of gold on your foot, the ECS A85F2-A Golden arrived on my doorstep, nearly blinding me with its flashy package. The ECS A85F2-A Deluxe is ECS's high-end AMD APU offering right now, and it is sure to add that "bling" to any new AMD APU build.

Ugly as poop...
This boards looks are so bland, I don't think us modders can even make this look good.

Nice review and I really like the motherboard.

Anyway I want to ask what is the BIOS version and what are the actual temperatures while doing the tests?

Best Regards

Bios version is reported in the review. I always flash to most recent public release with review boards after first boot-up. You can always find that list here on this page:

Installation and Performance



bios was ver. 2012/11/14

I downloaded from here:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Pr...DetailID=1426&CategoryID=1&MenuID=154&LanID=9

average load temperatures were just over 40c on the FCH, board was 37c, and APU hit 48c will running SPi32m @ 4.9 GHz. 37 c stock.
