ECS’ Black series of motherboards changes color when it gets hot under the collar

Motherboards are the foundation of any good system, and like any piece of circuitry, they’re adversely affected by too much heat. Thermal sensors usually take care of that little issue, but it never hurts to get another, visual reference when your board is about to reach critical mass. Enter ECS’ Black Series of motherboards – the A990FXM-A for AMD fans and the P67H2-A for Intel lovers.

Both of these boards feature ECS’ QoolTech IV technology, which among other things has Thermochromic tech built-in that changes the color of one of the heatsinks to tell you if you’re pushing your board too far.
