ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX LGA 1155 26

ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX LGA 1155 Review

Intel Z77 Express Chipset »


Last week we took a look at our first Intel Z77 Express sample, and today we have another, this time from ECS. The ECS Golden Board Z77H2-AX is ECS's top-tier Intel Z77 Express offering, a limited-edition release with just 200 boards globally, and ECS sent me number 004. ECS is amidst a big change in the way they do things and market their products, and the Golden Board Z77H2-AX is the first of what might become a very successful product line. ECS's Black Extreme boards carry a tale of dual dragons tormenting humanity time and again, and the products themselves serve as weapons against the dual terrors named AMD and Intel. Of course, with a name like "Golden Board" attached to the Z77H2-AX, it's not just any Black Extreme product either, and serves as a "rare weapon", and those of you that play RPG games know all rare items are Golden!!
