3 out of 5 eggsDecent board, not OC friendly

Pros: Board is really good, this board was a down grade to my original evga 1366 socket 3 way sli, this was the only board i could find with a 1366 socket and was in my budget range, running i7 930 2.8ghz with 2 gtx 560s, runs any game i want to play (Tera, vindictus, BF3) all with 60+ frames on ultra settings with a 1920x1080p screen, first time using sata cables, love it, makes it better than my original board, but see the cons

Cons: Board came DOA, order it off e bay (not newegg) board shipped DOA, called ECS they found broken pins but of course they thought it was me, only had to pay 25 bucks to fix it, they sent me a new one, looked alot better then the board that was shipped, but of course that came with a heat sink pin that was broken, called them up again, they sent the pin for no cost, but it took over 6 business days? come on now, it was a small pin...

I CANNOT OC MY I7 930 ON THIS BOARD! this makes me bottle neck in BF3 sometimes, ill get 60+ frames, then out of no where, it'll go to low dps, with my old board i had my i7 930 at 3.5mhz and i can tell the difference from 2.8-2.9 to 3.5.
I also cant OC my RAM to 1600 speed, i have 24gb g skill 1600 speed ram and i can only run this at 800mhz because i cannot OC my processor to run it at this speed! THAT IS NO GOOD!

bad thing is, it says you can over clock, but you CANNOT

Other Thoughts: if you're not going to OC and wanna play games on high, then this board is good, but if you're like me who is used to stronger boards that is OVER CLOCKING FRIENDLY, get a better board thats not from ECS, i seen other reviews saying their boards are not good for over clocking, if its not made for over clocking even a little bit, dont make a motherboard, plan and simple.

4 out of 5 eggsSucessor to a great board - but...

Pros: I have owned and run an earlier rev of this board - X58B-A (V1.0). (see 'Other Thoughts' for differences).
It has been a great piece of hardware - running 24 x 7 for the past 18 months.
If this one has the same build/design it should be a great deal - same features of many of the high priced spreads for well under $200.
Note that it supports 24 GB of RAM - something that quite a few higher priced boards do not.

My board supports a 16 channel video card, an eight channel SAS card and a single channel SATA III card as well as 12 GB (now 24 GB) of Mushkin DDR3-1066 RAM @1.5 V
I have had excellent response from ECS US-based, native English speaking support staff.

Cons: Unlike my earlier V1.x version, this board has only one Ethernet interface - this may not be a biggie unless you are doing a server; then you will have to use up a PCI-E slot to supply your own.

Other users reported poor overclocking features - I'm not an OCer so can't comment.

My rev of this board has an odd cold start process - it seems to boot twice - twitches the fans, shows the splash screen, goes black (Black Series?), then comes up for good. A bit disconcerting but otherwise no problem.

Other Thoughts: I own an earlier rev of this board - X58B-A (V1.0).
There are some differences -
1. This board has only one Ethernet interface while the V1.x has two
2. This board has a revised cooling system that drops the heat pipe connecting the chipset components and the power regulator MOSFETs. Heatpipe solutions have been of questionable value on some boards (especially if they leak) and they can distribute heat from a poorly performing part to the others in the chain, so independent cooling may be better in some cases. Still, you have to be sure the entire board has good air circulation on the newer revs.
3. According to the ECS website, the later boards support the Gulftown processor while the original V1.x does not.

ECS is a large scale OEM operation that supplies many of the big retail names, so they know what they are doing with respect to making hardware - and they seem to be getting better on the retail side.
