I have done some research on your board and since I have not worked with any of the "Extreme" series that ECS have created to enter the DIY market I must admit to being somewhat hasty in my judgement.
It has been my experience that the voltage/temperature readouts of ECS mainboards have been lacking in stability. I have also found that the overclocking settings of ECS boards have been also very lacking and not useful to the o/c community.
That being said, since I have not yet tested these new releases (Extreme) I had better withold my judgement on their capacities to fulfil overclockers needs.
Have you tested the voltage/temperature readouts on that board? Using a program such as:
Or Everest Home Edition
I would be interested in knowing if the temperature and voltage readings fluctuate greatly or if they are stable.
