    ECS UK and HEXUS Giveaway - ECS KA3 MVP



    ECS ELITEGROUP have teamed up with HEXUS to give away one of its ECS KA3 MVP mainboards - an excellent feature packed product for AMD AM2 Based Processors.

    Check out the ECS ELITEGROUP ECS KA3 MVP: here


    A snippet from the HEXUS.press release:
    The KA3 MVP supports versions of the Athlon™ FX, Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core, Athlon™ 64 and Sempron™ CPUs (all of which are socket AM2) as well as the new AM2 Energy Efficient microprocessors. AMD’s new lineup of low power processors provides 35W and 65W versions of AM2 processors for increased energy savings.
    Ye Rules:

    - ECS ELITEGROUP will be sending the ECS KA3 MVP mainboard direct to the lucky winner

    - HEXUS and ECS ELITEGROUP's decision is final.

    - No HEXUS or ECS ELITEGROUP staff can enter.


    Right... the Big One, the question: -

    At Computex 2006, ECS showcased its range of RoHS boards with a new PCB colour scheme, what colour where they?

    Tie breaker: How many transistors are there on the ECS RS485M-M AM2 motherboard, not including the chipsets?

    Please feel free to post the answers within this thread.

    The lucky winner will be selected by captivating Kerri and sweet Sarah at The PR Room



    Good Luck!

    Closing date - 8th August.

    Schlurple the purple for your colour scheme, and another guess that there are 153.8 million transistors, but then what do I know?

    I think you might have it, and I might be confusing capacitors and transistors again
