However, the power delivery for the CPU socket does not have a heatsink attached, which is an oversight. Depending on your use case, this could be a positive or a negative.

If you were to run a single-slot graphics card, either layout is usable. The design has space for two expansion slots.

ECS > AM-MV (VA)

When using a dual-slot graphics card, the layout of the AM-MV means that you lose the use of the x1 slot. The smallest boards we usually see FX processors on is M-ATX, which is small, but not as small as some of us would like.

As you can see from lxn bottom of the board, the PCB is more of a brown than a black. Looks like M-DTX form factor.

For anything more than a basic word processing or web browsing system, I would highly recommend a graphics card to be used. Of course the major feature here is the CPU socket.

ECS A960M-MV – M-DTX… or is it?

a60m-mv Please refer to the latest Memory support list for details. This takes my W processor down to 95w. Build quality is appropriate for this price bracket — outside of the CPU power delivery, all capacitors are of the non-solid variety.

Awesome power in a small space with the right CPUand a good price. As you can see, the board a960m-nv four SATA ports. Many M-DTX boards feature the same expansion slot selection, but with the locations reversed.

As you may also notice, the CPU cooler bracket does not come with a backplate — which does restrict the use of heavier coolers that use the stock AMD clip system.

If you use a dual-slot card with the alternate layout, you require a case with three slots. The board supports up to w processors, including the venerable FX In reality though, this port is connected to the onboard AMD G chipset, so you are stuck with the rather old Radeon graphics chipset.

While this may be a budget board, it does offer quite a few things to the SFF enthusiast. M-DTX is believed by some to be the ideal small form factor board. The board is brown, instead of black, but overall it feels a960mm-v a solid board.

A little disappointing but it is to be expected on a board of this price bracket. Also optional is HDMI onboard. While M-DTX is supposed to measure mm wide by mm long, this board is mm wide by mm long.

I a9600m-mv advise undervolting your CPU if you wish to use this board.
