Going small is the big trend this year, and we saw a lot of great products at CES 2014 that supports that trend. Everyone is trying to pack the most PC power into as small a box as possible, and we are now seeing that strong influence in PC case designs. Especially since Steam Machines also require small form factors. The new ECS Z87H3-M motherboard is here to help complete that smaller build by sacrificing nothing. All of the gaming power of a full sized board, is squeezed into an Micro-ATX size.
The ECS Z87H3-M is a full featured gaming motherboard within the Micro-ATX form factor. There is support for up to 3 displays up to 4K resolution support, 4 DDR3 slots for up to 32 GB of RAM at 1600 MHz, 8-channel audio output, and AMD CrossfireX. These are just some of the many features you will have with the ECS Z87H3-M. It also comes with many of the exclusive ECS goodies like EZ Charge (3 times the current over USB for faster gadget charging), eBLU BIOS utility, and eSF SmartFan.
If you are building a SFF (small form factor) gaming PC, but don't want to go all the way to min-ITX sizing to do it, then this might do the trick. The ECS Z87H3-M will be available by the end of January 2014 for an aggressive MSRP of $100 USD at all their distribution partners. Full press release below.
