2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None really

Cons: I upgrated my main system and bought this to put my extra parts in. Like others have said the layout is bad. I never did get it to boot up right. And since its just a back-up system (plus it was giving me a headache) I will mess with it more at a later time.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 ECS mobo's that are still running a P4 1.8 and 2.0 ghz with no troubles. Those older boards had alot better set up then this one.

1 out of 5 eggstrash

Pros: It managed to POST without hurting me or my family.

Cons: Bad layout. AGP Express is just a marketing sham for an AGP slot that connects to the PCI bus, which means that your AGP video card will run slower than ever. Using an unsupported video card caused lockups and instability. I'm never buying this junk again.

Other Thoughts: At least it didn't damage the video card I was using.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible support

Pros: Cheap, dual channel.

Cons: ECS support ranks with root canals as far as I'm concerned.
Asked them repeated, point-blank questions, got anwers to someone else's questions, or no answer.

Other Thoughts: CPU pad extremely close to PSU.
Wish I'd bought mine from Newegg!
Can't beat newegg for service, shipping, or prices.

2 out of 5 eggsSketchy

Pros: Inexpensive, Works, Can use both AGP and PCIe

Cons: Layout is horrible. Most Graphics Cards cover the SATA ports. Also, the board has overclocking capability but is completely unstable with any changes to clock speeds and voltages. Also, may not read processor temperatures accurately and the chipset itself gets very hot. AGP slot has the same BUS as the normal PCI slots so it can use an AGP card, but there is no performace over a PCI card.

Other Thoughts: Decent makeshift board, not for the enthusiast. Don't buy.

2 out of 5 eggsEvery Cheap Shortcut

Pros: It was free with my CPU

Cons: went from a 9800Pro to a PCIe 7600GS and have had nothing but problems. I tried to flash the BIOS and it hung during the WINFlash. Now I am shopping for a new motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Every other review has great points that I have all found to be true. Buyer BEWARE!!

2 out of 5 eggsRemember AGP Express is PCI

Pros: for those who aren't willing to upgrade to a PCIe Card and are on a budget and can take AGP Express.

Cons: AGP express ins't a real AGP slot, its just a PCI slot in disguise. when i say that i mean that it runs at the latency of a PCI slot. ACS made AGP press so that you can use a AGO slot while waiting for a PCI card and still be able to use a 64 bit CPU.

Other Thoughts: nice attempt at renaming the AGP slot to fool people :(

5 out of 5 eggsAGP & PCIe on one board!

Pros: It's a good layout to support both PCIe and AGP video card. Resonable price for those features. system runs stable and fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you still want to use your old AGP video card, this motherboard will be your good choice.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad! basic simple Full ATX motherboard

Pros: Simple and basic motherboard for Socket 939. Assemble the system and run. Orginally, the system is very unstable. Flash the BIOS, doesn't help. Replace the memory solve the problem. Memory is defective.

Cons: Not at all.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 64-bit, blah blah everything they say it does. It runs well once everything is plugged in, but the layout is pretty poor,like others have said.

Cons: Only two PCI slots, IDE slots too cramped against PCI and AGP slots. For some reason, it will not run with both of my functional 512 MB Kingston HyperX KHX3200AK2/1G RAM chips in the DIMM slots. It will run with one in it. ECS tech support is crummy.

Other Thoughts: If given the choice I'd buy a different, slightly more expensive board. Looks pretty tho..

5 out of 5 eggsGood socket 939 board

Pros: Full ATX size with 2 PCIe slot. One for my GB lan card & one for my TV tuner card. Cool! System runs perfect right now.

Cons: No comment
