ECS A990FXM-A ASMEDIA USB 3.0 DRIVER
This is yet another area where ECS has overdone the design, but due to the locations used for each controller on the board's surface, it becomes quite clear that this design choice was quite intentional.
This chip has proven itself as a fantastic solution on the other products we've looked at, and hopefully this will continue here on the AFXM-A. Once removed, we can see that the heatpipe not only connects the separate elements, but also directly passes over both AMD chipsets in an "HDT" design Heatpipe Direct Touch for the best possible cooling.
The ECS A990FXM-A ASMedia USB 3.0 and VRM coolers are one piece of aluminum with a thick sticky thermal pad in place to interface with the MOSFETs, which upon close inspection makes excellent contact. The southbridge cooler element is a large flat piece of aluminum, with a fairly thick sticker on top. We found not a speck of thermal paste on the cooler itself, and looking at the southbridge itself, we find a piece of blue thermal interface material with supporting tape in place to ensure proper contact.

You can clearly see the impression left in the pad from the southbridge silicon along with the tape it is attached to in the third image above. The sticker on the southbridge cooler is not just for vanity purposes, either. A new innovation to board design we haven't seen before, the sticker itself is temperature sensitive, and will change color based on the temperature of the entire cooling solution, thanks to the transferred heat from the heatpipe.
The second image above shows how the cooler appears when under average loads, with the black tribal pattern turning into purple and orange inner slashes to indicate the level of thermal load the cooler is under. Under light ECS A990FXM-A ASMedia USB 3.0 scenarios only the orange will appear, while once reaching the upper limits, the purple streaks will disappear. This proved very handy, as just a quick glance at the cooler gives a good overall indicator of thermal loading, and in our case, it was a ECS A990FXM-A ASMedia USB 3.0 that we were pushing the system perhaps a bit too far, with not enough airflow, as you can see by the third image above.
Of course you could also view them as colors more associated with the military, which is where the TUF series draws its inspiration from. This is because the positioning of the four PCIe 2.
In short, running a dual-card setup is the most reasonable option for most people as well as what's best on this board. Some users may find it useful for those occasions when they get their memory settings wrong or a lemon of a memory module.
Instead, you'll find the usual front panel connectors and an old-school jumper to reset the BIOS. The fourth slot in black and sandwiched in between has a limited PCIe bandwidth of x4, making it less than suitable for multi-GPU setups.

We were quite surprised to see that ASUS has taken out two sides of the heatsink mounting bracket surrounding the socket, but we suppose this was due to the lack of space. Free Download ECS AFXM-A (V) ASMedia USB Driver High Performance AMD HyperTransport CPU Interface.
