Never went with ECS and never will, I just preffer to stick with the main, very known and reputable brands, not saying that ECS isn't, but not many people use them...

Then I guess they are pretty reliable... But I'm the type of guy that likes to stick with the same brands that he knows are reputable. I stick with the same brands all the time.

My ECS won't OC 20MHz. If you ask me, ECS is utter crap. Could just be the VIA chipset, though (although my ASUS VIA board OCs my 2800+ from 1.8 to 2.37).

I own a ECS motherboard and personally iI have to say thats my next upgrade is gonna be the motherboard....I prefer that you go with asus and stay away from the p35 because there sli configs are horrible....like 16x slot 1/ 4x slot 2.

I have an ECS on my Duron rig. OC'd from 1.8 to 1.93. Very reliable board, but lacks in the OC dept.
post #10 of 14
I'll just input that I've used two ECS boards that died in less than 6 months.
