A more interesting feature on the H57H-MUS we'll be testing today is that it's packaged with two extra add-on controllers, one offers USB 3.0 through an onboard NEC uPD720200 host controller and the other is a SATA 6G add-on controller, adding some greater compatibility and extra power for USB / SATA6G devices.
Designed to support latest Intel CPUs with integrated graphics and built around Intel's latest H57 chipset, the H57H-MUS board from ECS also features a complete bundle, composed of a USB 3.0 and SATA 6G expansion card, which makes the board a future-proof powerful computing platform, in a MATX board format.
Intel H57 is a more "complete" version of the Intel H55 chipset, supporting RAID, 14 USB 2.0 ports (against 12 on H55), and eight PCI Express 2.0 x1 lanes (against six on H55). H57H-MUS from ECS comes with two PCI Express x1 expansion cards to add USB 3.0 ports and SATA-600 (a.k.a. SATA 6G) ports on the motherboard. Let's what you should expect from this product.
The ECS H57H-MUS is a micro ATX motherboard that offers respectable features such as SATA 6G and USB 3.0. Sporting a wide array of video connection ports and a reported launch price of approximately $150 or so, the H57H-MUS looks to be a nice option for LGA1156 value seekers.
"The H57H-MUS supports all Intel LGA 1156 based processors, but only i5 and i3 processors with a built-in IGP will enable the rear video options. To ensure the installed CPU has an adequate amount of power, the H57H-MUS uses a 9 phase unit design with a 3+2+1 configuration and a large dual-pipe heatsink on the MOSFET. This will lower the overall temperature of the voltage regulation modules, and increase the stability and overclocking potential."
