I've been waiting for you guys to come out with a review like this since I saw similar things on tom's. Nicely done, and just in time as I am buying a new x58 mobo soon! :lol:

But my feelings towards one are pretty similar to my feelings towards the other: I’m confused by the most recent plot twists and skeptical that the writers can wrap it all up in one tidy package.” By Ezra Klein, talking about the 2010 State of the Union Address.

So on the ECS boards seem like they are putting more quality into them now? They are usually the boards companies give you in barebones package deals, and out of the 5 I have ever owned all went bad on me in months of owning them. This was a few years back now, maybe I will consider them again in the future. Thanks for the review. :D
