Introduction

On January, 15th, 2014 ECS announced the Z87H3-M - the smartest Z87 MicroATX motherboard. This motherboard comes with the Intel Z87 Chipset, 4K Resolution Support, and Fast Crossfire X Graphics. This unit is an ECS Durathon board. This means it has the Triple Density moisture-proof PCB, ultra-high Extreme Temperature Resistance, and extra-stringent testing. ECS Z87H3-M features 100% durable, heat-resistant solid capacitors which typically provide a lifetime 6 times longer than the electrolytic capacitors. Meanwhile the board’s external connectors, such as VGA, USB and LAN ports, feature heavy-duty ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, to protect from static and other electrical disturbances.
