M-DTX is believed by some to be the ideal small form factor board. However, the power delivery for the CPU socket does not have a heatsink attached, which is an oversight. The design has space for two expansion slots. Please refer to the latest Memory support list for details. Awesome power in a small space with the right CPU , and a good price.

ECS > AM-MV (VA)
Depending on your use case, this could be a positive or a negative. However, the power delivery for the CPU socket does not have a heatsink attached, which is an oversight.
Please refer to the latest Memory support list for details. The smallest boards we usually see FX processors on is M-ATX, which is small, but not as small as some of us would like.
This takes my W processor down to 95w. The board is brown, instead of black, but overall it feels like a solid board. The board a960m-jv up to w processors, including the venerable FX As you can see from the bottom of the board, the PCB is more of a brown than a black.
Of course the major feature here is the CPU socket. While M-DTX is supposed to measure mm wide by mm long, this board is mm wide by mm long. Also optional is HDMI onboard.
Awesome power in a small space with the right CPUand a good price. For anything more than a basic word processing or web browsing system, I would highly recommend a graphics card to s960m-mv used.
M-DTX is believed by some to be the ideal small form factor board. While this may be a budget board, it does offer quite a few things to the SFF enthusiast.
ECS A960M-MV – M-DTX… or is it?
Looks like M-DTX form factor. I would advise undervolting your CPU if you wish to use this board. As you can see, the board features four SATA ports. The design has space for two expansion slots.
As you may also notice, the CPU cooler bracket does not come laj a backplate — which does restrict the use of heavier coolers that use the stock AMD clip system. If you use a dual-slot card with the alternate layout, you require a case with three slots.
Build quality is appropriate for this price bracket — outside of the CPU power delivery, all capacitors are of the non-solid variety. Many M-DTX boards feature the same expansion slot selection, but with the locations reversed.
A little disappointing but it is to a960m-kv expected on a board of this price bracket.
When using a dual-slot graphics card, the layout of the AM-MV means that you lose the use of the x1 slot. In reality though, this port is connected to llan onboard AMD G chipset, so you are stuck with the rather old Radeon graphics chipset. If you were to run a single-slot graphics card, either layout is usable.
