ECS 945G-M3 – 3.0 – motherboard – micro ATX – LGA775 Socket – i945G
With only two DIMM slots and a structured design, the board has a spacious layout that should provide good ventilation features to the memory, CPU and power components. Despite its already overclocked speeds and lack of voltage controls, the G-M3 is still a decent overclocker.
For one, it has a faster core running at MHz and is able to utilize more memory, up to MB. 945v
Users who have videocards with large coolers or dual slot coolers have to use a bit of caution when installing them on the ECS G-M3 945t. This leaves the user with no other option than to purchase media expansion or ADD2 cards separately if they need dual view, TV-out or PVR capabilities.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. Users who are careless could potentially snap the CMOS battery right off if they force things Transformation and Lightning is still not hardware accelerated, so don’t expect great improvements to 3D performance though you will see a noticeable jump from using a dual core processor.
