Motherboard maker ECS unveiled a Intel X48 chipset based motherboard today, the X48T-A.
Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), the world’s leading motherboard, barebone system, and notebook manufacturer, is pleased to introduce the latest killer motherboard, X48T-A, leveraging Intel® XMP technology, ATI CrossFireTM technology, ECS QooltechTM II silent cooler and features dual Gigabit LAN, Ultra I/O Rear Panel to provide enthusiasts and gamers an amazing experience of high-performance low-temperature. The X48T-A motherboard also supports Intel® 45nm processors as well as Core™2 Extreme Quad-Core processors which offering a wide range of solutions for building an excellent PC.

Efficient High Performance
Utilized the Intel® X48 express chipset from Intel®, the X48T-A supports 1600 MHz front side bus and delivers 45nm Intel® Core™2 family processing power. In particular, the motherboard has the ability to set DDR3 modules to automatically start up a system in an overclocking state using two profiles that are available in the SPD of the modules. When it working with XMP compatible memory modules, users get optimized performance up to DDR3 1600 and keep system stability simultaneously without touching anything, otherwise runs a normal mode using non-XMP memory modules. It is really a simple but intelligent solution for end users to tune up their PC’s performance.

Furthermore, it features 2 PCI Express 2.0 X16 slots (running at full X16 bandwidth) for ATI CrossFireTM X technology, providing better multi-GPU support than before. Moreover X48T-A is equipped with the revolutionary ECS M.I.B. (Motherboard Intelligent BIOS) overclocking utility for performance users to get extra benefit through a flexible tweaking tool. The utility integrated all the overclocking functions into one page. It provides the most intelligent and convenient way to adjust the clock/ voltage settings of CPU and memory. Users can easily get the extra performance with this innovative utility

Extremely Cooling and Silent
Even though the QooltechTM technology has been pleasantly surprised by users, however, ECS does not feel conceited and complacent, making an untiring effort to announce ECS QooltechTM Generation 2, the silent cooler adopts a copper tube with a special design providing an excellent heat transfer capacity and efficiently reduced the temperature up to 20 degrees centigrade of computer system. Also, its fan-less design offers a noiseless operation and brings quiet working environment, keeping the system in a high-performance low-temperature working status. These facilities make X48T-A becoming the king of cooling solution.

Excellent Expansibility
The motherboard features S/PDIF in/ out ports, offering you an option for a crisp and clean digital sound effect. Its dual Gigabit LAN design allows a computer managing network traffic between two separate networks and ensures rapid data transfer from WAN to LAN without any latency. To provide great flexibility, it features 6 X USB 2.0 ports, 1 X eSATA port, 2 PCI Express 2.0 X1 and 2 PCI slots for various usages.
