The manufacturer commented on the review below
I bought this motherboard from another site for really cheap after rebate. I tried to pair it up with an Ivy Bridge CPU but it didnt work initially. I had to borrow a friends Sandy Bridge CPU, install Windows, update the BIOS via ECS's program, then install my Ivy Bridge CPU. After that hassle, the board works fine. My only other issue with this micro ATX board is that if you use a longer video card, it will block 2 of the SATA ports. Probably not an issue since people buying this board will probably use the integrated video.

If the motherboard worked with Ivy Bridge CPUs out of the box, this motherboard would be pretty solid for the price. However due to the hassle of getting the BIOS updated first when using Ivy Bridge processors, it should be avoided if you dont have access to a Sandy Bridge CPU. However, ECS may have updated the BIOS since then.

The manufacturer commented on this review(What's this?)
We are sorry to here about the issues you experienced with using an Ivy bridge CPU. Currently we have a process in place where any inventory shipped to an etailer (such as Amazon) will be updated to the latest BIOS prior to shipping, to help aleviate such issues. Unfortunately a new BIOS release can come out after this process. This can cause a motherboard that had an up to date BIOS to become a motherboard with a dated BIOS. We do apologize for the inconvenience that such an issue can cause and if you or any others run into such an issue, we recommend that you contact us and we will work with you to resolve it.

Our hours are Mon-Fri 9am-6pm PST.

I give this four out of five stars . The reason I cut out one star is because of the fact that one of the four usb built into the motherboard does not work and also I can't see the cpu temp or system temp in bios. These are small problems ,but that a con for me.Overall its a good board to buy and I have bought ECS motherboards in the past. Nothing is going to perfect in life , so I am just glad it work. In order to use the sound and lan you need to install the drivers.

This motherboard is not the top of the line. But not everyone needs the top of the line or is willing to spend the money required to get a high-end motherboard. The ECS H61H2-M2 motherboard contains higher-end features such as an HDMI interface, support for up to 16GB of RAM, a Gigabit network interface (not 100Mb/s as listed here on Amazon), and support for Core i7, i5 and i3 processors. In addition, it has some nice convenience features such as the ability to flash the BIOS from within Windows, and a fan speed adjustment utility (for when you need a quieter fan - such as when building a home theater PC).

For under $50 this motherboard has a lot to offer.

I had no problems or surprises when installing the motherboard and it is working great! I would definitely recommend this motherboard.

Good board if money is a priority over latest tech. Will give you a couple of years of usable computing before it can no longer keep up with the latest software.
