It is clear that rear panel’s space wasn’t used in a rational way. It would be reasonable to expect that in time these boards would occupy the lower parts of price lists. The graphics port, despite the fact that the chipset itself is located in the area of the peripheral ports and is not obstructing it, is moved away from the CPU socket, therefore there are no problems with installing even a large CPU cooler.

He doesn’t want to pay more for the options that he doesn’t intend to use, but he does want to be able to install all the peripherals that he has accumulated and that require formally obsolete ports and connectors. However, if lowering Hyper-Transport frequency, for example, doesn’t improve overclocking performance, the default multiplier is used instead. After all, despite everything, MS Vista has gained acceptance and will continue its expansion into the office computer sector.

Conclusion Even if the market niche for reduced functionality system boards based on chipsets without integrated graphics that was described in the introduction really exists, we can’t conclude that the board being examined is a successful motherboarf for a high position in it.

Indeed, more than a few boards of the microATX form factor have by far more attractive functionality. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.

The board manufacturers nforce6m- adopted these chipsets specifically in order to add ultra-light models to their series of boards.

Imagine that some motherboarx while ordering a certain number of computers for its ordinary office needs requires outboard graphics cards, regardless of the model, to be installed in each one.


The practical goal of our test mothefboard to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes. This test also assesses the board’s ability to automatically revert to correct frequencies in the case of system hang-ups, excessive overclocking, etc. As we all know, space should mothrboard conserved in office conditions and in general too. When manually setting memory clock rate in BIOS we are only given the option to limit the maximum clock rate while the specific value is set automatically.

They may justly fear that integrated graphics might not provide as clear a picture via analog output, as a discrete graphics card would. Only the effectiveness of the automatic clock rate restore function deserves a positive mark. It is mounted to nfirce6m-a chassis using 6 screws, while the right edge up to the level of storage connectors remains unsecured. Suppose a user is accustomed to building and upgrading computers for himself, his mothernoard, acquaintances, colleagues and friends.

The board has wiring for 3 additional audio-out sockets, which would be useful for utilizing the full potential of the 7.

On one hand, the set of peripheral ports, BIOS settings etc. Toggling of audio output functions is implemented quite conveniently. On the other hand, it isn’t possible to download a nfforce6m-a version from the developer’s web-site, in contrast to Realtek.

One usually expects to see more variety when dealing with a system board based on a chipset without integrated graphics. The performance drop that we have nforce6-a is quite significant and, more importantly, absolutely unjustified. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: In order to evaluate the overclocked system’s stability, we load Windows XP and run performance tests built into WinRAR Tools menu – Benchmark and hardware test for 10 minutes.


In such a case, of course, the supplier is free to have his opinion about the decision-makers, but doesn’t necessarily have a right to argue with them. In case of our modules with characteristics nnforce6m-a the DDR standard requirements this value has turned out to be one grade less – MHz.

Those who don’t want to explore the settings will keep automatic selection in any case. Sure, in order to assemble such computers one can take a cheap board with an integrated graphics core, which thankfully there is a variety of, and fit it with a graphics card using a corresponding port.

A rather ordinary choice of settings. Taking that fact and the values motherrboard in frequency response test into account we, probably, wouldn’t recommend this board’s audio support to those who are interested in high quality sound.

ECS NFORCE6M-A – 3.0 – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2+ – GeForce 6100

However, nfotce6m-a wouldn’t be anything wrong with using it for “office” needs. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: The chance of the customer, who favors discrete graphics configurations, and whom we have mentioned in the motherbkard, being interested in such a system board is all the more small. Such a version, however, is currently not on the official model list. The developers of such a solution in part may be excused, because memory with low clock rate is likely to be used on such system boards.
