Introduction



ECS has been around for a long time, but most of that time has been spent as an OEM and entry-level brand, rather than selling high-end, enthusiast-oriented products. Their first ventures into the enthusiast market we are all a part of were stable, reliable, and priced pretty decently, while they built many products for bigger white-box companies like IBM, etc., we all love to hate. One commonality in ECS's early products was that overclocking features were sorely missed, which had mainstream enthusiasts focus on other brands instead. That changed a few years ago with ECS directly developing gaming-focused OC products and introducing the "BLACK" series of boards with a centralized design ideal that evolved over several generations, many of which have appeared on these pages in the past.

ECS updated their design vision with the launch of Intel's latest by going for the jugular of your average gamer in a way that actually left me speechless. The name says it all: Let me introduce you to the ECS GANK MACHINE.
