Verdict

This board’s performance is good, if not great. It returned decent scores in all our benchmarks: 149.7 fps in DOOM 3 with a 7800 GTX, and it encoded a 100 MB VOB file in 76 seconds with a Core 2 Duo X6800. The motherboard is certainly good for those who want to build an entertainment PC, but not for hard-core gamers or enthusiasts.

ECS PX1 Extreme detailed review



Not Really Extreme…


The ECS PX1 Extreme is one of the earlier Intel P965 chipset based motherboards that support ATI’s CrossFire by means of two PCI-E x16 slots. The board has a spacious layout: the area around the CPU socket allows for easy installation of a larger heat sink and all the slots and connectors are neatly laid-out.

Up to 8 GB of DDR2 RAM @ 800 MHz is supported. Its ICH8DH Southbridge is compatible with Intel Viiv, and there’s 8-channel HD audio.
