5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Board works great under pressure. upon arrival, i decided to test the boards limits and was stressing it on 100%. everything checks out to be good. I am consistently running an MMO named silkroad in 3 instance clients. the board never shuts down, never does random overheat restarts.

Cons: Board doesnt give many fan options in bios. The fan runs at a constant speed which is annoying. it sounds like a vacuum cleaner.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None.

Cons: I believe it was DOA. When i turned it on all the fans and everything spun up but would not do anything else. No picture on screen, no beeps, no bloops, no nothing.

Other Thoughts: RMA'ing for a gigabyte micro ATX board

Manufacturer Response:

We have support team ready to assist customers in the event something like this happens. We wish you would have contacted our support team either at 510-226-7333 (option 6) or support@ecsusa.com.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't hold your breath

Pros: I (still) haven't completed this build yet, so I withold commenting on performance until later. At the present time, this is relative to ECS' rebate.
Note that I rated myself as "average". This, too, is relative to the rebate. Send the required items, get a rebate check.

Cons: If you actually expect to receive our rebate from ECS, do yourself a favor and don't hold your breath. I bought the board on 2/28 along w/ an EVGA graphics board, which also had a rebate offered. Mailed all the rebate stuff at the same time. EVGA rebate came weeks ago but I have seen and heard nothing from ECS.

Other Thoughts: Like most people, I didn't choose this board based upon its rebate, I chose the board 'cause it seems to be what I need. The rebate was a welcomed bonus that, thus far, is a promise not kept.
By the time I fire the new machine up and have had time to evaluate it, maybe the rebate status will have changed and the board will prove sufficient. More on both subjects in the (near?) future.

2 out of 5 eggsGood board... while it lasted...

Pros: So... it ran pretty good, accepted 3 gigs of ram, has 4 sata ports, looks nice, 1066mghz fsb, good with vista, didn't give it only a 1 because it was nice while it worked, got it pretty cheap...

Cons: Lasted only a week, beware of ECS, D-E-A-D, ecs support sucks- i called long distance to their California office only to receive an answering machine and it was 4.00 est. didn't support my Pentium d for some reason, works fine on another motherboard so had to continue build with Pentium 4 which worked, dual graphics engine is B$...

Other Thoughts: My friend bought and ECS sli board and it too lasted less than a week... sent it back and newegg already discontinued it so he got a refund... support sucks, take to long to email and calling long distance to california sucks, why can't they have a toll-free number, not some random numbers to taiwan... I am not getting any more ECS boards as long as I can help it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear PCAdron,

When you called our support line at that time, all of our technicians were on the phone assisting other customers. We wish you had left us a voice message so we could have returned your call. Our line at 510-226-7333 (option 6) goes to our California office...and not Taiwan.

Sincerely,
ECS

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Hooked up everything. Turn the power on. Nothing. Support stinks. MoBo DOA.

1 out of 5 eggsJust doesn't work

Pros: It's a very good price.

Cons: It just doesn't work. I connected it all up, hit the power button, P/S fan spun up, CPU fan spun up....and that's it. Hard drive did not spin up, and I got no video. I would have loved to have gotten my replacement from Newegg, but I just didn't have the time. So, I bought a 945PL from a local store and put it in place, and had the same problem. I have now sworn off ECS. I bought a Gigabyte mobo instead and it's runnin' just fine.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't matter how cheap it is if it doesn't work.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA!!!

Pros: Looks nice, might make a great door stop.

Cons: Came dead on arrival. Would not boot. I was lucky to get the cpu fan to spin. Nothing else would work, not even any error beeps. This thing is horrible.

Other Thoughts: I am sad to say this is not the first board I got from ECS that was DOA. I will not buy from ECS again.

5 out of 5 eggsNice inexpensive MOBO

Pros: I had an extra Pentium D and PCI-X video card from another PC so I bought this MOBO to upgrade an "ancient" P3-600 I was using as my server (running Ubuntu 7.10) Slapped in 2GB of Kingston memory and had this thing up in running with Ubuntu 7.10 in no time. Running Samba as a domain controller for my other Wind*ws PC's (my family boycotted Linux on the rest of the machines - so I'm stuck with Bill) Not a scream machine but works just fine for a headless box in the corner running my server, weather station and webcam.

Cons: Too bad it doesn't have a second IDE port since I inherited an IDE drive (320GB) from my P3 along with the DVD drive - no more IDE ports.

Other Thoughts: Great foundation of a nice Ubuntu box. I haven't tried any OC'ing and I see from the comments that it doesn't work too well.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 4 SATA ports, 7.1 Dolby, Dual PCI express slots (crossfire)

Cons: Only 1 IDE channel, no RAID, Overclocking in BIOS doesn't work and even with a BIOS flash its still only sort of works, Vista drivers for sound card hard to find. Sometimes hangs on POST (maybe my USB HD though)

Other Thoughts: Bought this over a year ago and it died due to my monster of a heatsink, Newegg replaced it quickly the new one has been running since with a Pent D and a liquid cooler. I recommend this board if your not trying to build a monster overclocker or need raid. Also the price is half what I paid when I got it. ECS has a pretty good website also.
