Board looks good, too bad it had problems with the BIOS.

I wonder if ECS will address this?

I think ECS should fix their bios issues before they start making high end mb's. Looks great but if it's that much a pain to oc what good is it.For less money you can get a better board from asus or gigabyte.

it kinda looks like ECS is turning around from being known as a budget brand to something nicer. Last time i used ECS was in 2003 with a XP 2000+ chip.

I just bought a cheap ECS board for an AMD Tri-Core CPU that I had on the shelf. (it was $26.00 delivered)

I havn't installed it yet, but I don't anticipate any problems.
