ECS PN2 SLI2+ nForce 680i SLI Motherboard Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Although many people are not aware of it, Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is the fourth largest motherboard manufacturer in the world, after Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI. While the company has traditionally focused on budget and mainstream motherboards, they utilized the Nvidia nForce 680i SLI chipset to create an enthusiast-oriented board. Futurelooks has just reviewed the ECS PN2 SLI2+ motherboard.
Lets see what they had to say:
ECS has really impressed us with the PN2 SLI2. Not only is the board packed with all the features you would expect for a high end motherboard, but it was quite stable for our overclocking endeavours. Normal, everyday performance is what you would come to expect, but the main differentiator between this and some other motherboard are the bios options, which are extremely flexible. Causing a BIOS problem with some super ridunkulous voltage setting should no longer be a huge concern as the board reverts to a more likeable setting for you.
Those of you with a keen eye will undoubtedly notice that this motherboard is identical to the reference Nvidia nForce 680i SLI design, first used by EVGA. This is a terrific choice by ECS, since the reference design is extremely stable, and has proven to be a terrific overclocker. Overall, if you need SLI capability, and can find this product for a good price, it's hard not to recommend.
