    1. cherry picked?
    2. dual vs quad?
    3. will it do the same, or at least, similarly, on NON unlocked cpus?

    1. Absolutely.
    2. 99.99999999999% likely the 5Ghz on air was the dual - quad would melt.
    3. no

    Though it would be EPIC if they were 5GHz quads ON AIR, I don't think even cherry-picking would make a quad hit those speeds ON AIR (and if they did, probably on borderline BSOD temps, and it definitely WON'T be stable)

    Hi Guys,

    Thank you guys so much for chatting up on our new P55H-AK, We have gone a long way since our days as just a OEM Low cost value board maker. I don't believe our support is any less than our competition as a matter of fact, we are speeding up our support time and also creating various ways for our user to get in touch with us if they should have any issue.

    I have to apologize to those who have had a bad experience with us, while we test 100% of our board there is still chances where we might miss and also those that might have been damage during shipping. We find that over 80% of our return most of time are not defective, so we always encourage our user to get in touch with us prior to sending back for repair or replacement to make sure they are not wasting money on shipping. Most of time if we find it reasonable and justified, we'll sent out a call tag if user had purchase the board and find it defective within 45 days to save user shipping. While not all cases are treated the same, we try our best to satisfied our customer.

    If you guys should have any question, please feel free to get in touch with me.

    And once again thank you guys so much for the support on the P55H-AK, Here is a video on over clocking demonstration from our PM. They do clearly state you need a AIR cooler for over clocking to over clock!

    Check it out and let me know what you guys think, we always appreciate your feed back!

    I wonder how well it would fair if you got it up to 5Ghz, and Crunched WCG for 24Hours at the very least. I would love to see those kind of BONIC scores.

    That motherboard looks great, if I hadn't have bought my P55-GD65 before this I would have gone with this one. Nice to see that ECS is stepping up their game. :toast:

    The bclk was kept at 180 in that video and the memory at 1440 cl 9 t2... what makes this board so special for overclocking? Im not trying to be a smart ass ( i know such a direct question can come off that way) but i am actually wondering if this board does something differently that others can't with that same CPU and ram.

    Edit: Well Vincent left... I have a feeling I will not get an answer to that question. :(
