Loaded up on the ECS H57H-MUS Black motherboard is an American Megatrends Inc BIOS. Within the CMOS setup utility are all of the standard options found on other ECS motherboards. There continues to be the Motherboard Intelligent BIOS III area for adjusting performance levels, DRAM frequency, CPU overclocking, GPU clock select, PCI Express overclocking, and voltage selection.

System Setup:

The ECS H57H-MUS motherboard was tested with an Intel Core i3 530 CPU, 2GB of OCZ DDR3-1333MHz system memory, a 64GB OCZ Vertex SSD, and we used the integrated Intel HD "Clarkdale" graphics. To no surprise, this system had no problems running with Ubuntu Linux. With the earlier Intel H55 motherboard we tested near the beginning of the year working just fine with an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS snapshot at the time, we had no concerns that this Intel H57 motherboard would work just fine considering the similarities between the two motherboards and chipsets.

When benchmarking this motherboard we ran an Ubuntu 10.10 snapshot with the Linux 2.6.35 kernel, X.Org Server 1.8.2 RC2, xf86-video-intel 2.11.0, GCC 4.4.4, and an EXT4 file-system by default. We compared the performance of the ECS H57H-MUS motherboard to that of the ECS H55H-M motherboard. The Phoronix Test Suite benchmarks included OpenArena, 7-Zip compression, LAME MP3 encoding, x264, OpenSSL, Crafty, PostgreSQL, C-Ray, and Unpack-Linux.
