Good to see ECS pushing more into the enthusiast market.
I have an ECS X58 Black I got from fits and it is a rock solid board. It has been crunching for the past year 100% load 24/7 @4.0Ghz without fail.
It reminds me when Gigabyte stated to step up there game
As Fits has already mentioned all ECS really needs is better BIOS updating.....
Ive always had good experiences with ECS boards...
I wouldn't recommend the bottom line boards but their mid and upper boards have always been fairly decent IMO...
I still have a 3-4 year old PC with an ECS RS-400 Intel board that has been running solid since day 1 I just recently upgraded it from DDR1 to DDR2 and from an AGP ATI 9550 to a PCI-E 1800xl...LOL it makes a great spare parts system
Bout time! the last AM3 ECS board i had was a rock solid board but ZERO overclocking tools
i've had a few AM3 ECS boards and they all OCed rather well.
This is the board i had. ECS Geforce 6100pm-m2 (VER 3.0), AM2/AM2+/AM3
This board had no OCing settings in the bios beside memory and you can do slight OCing in Nvidia Ntune software but it only went about 50-75mhz before it BSODed.
ah.... you need to upgrade to the ecs black series. great stuff
and not get Nvidia chipsets for AMD...
AMD works best with AMD Plus the 6100 chipset is limited to 2000MT/s a 5200MT/s chipset would likely do way better
+1 for both ASRock and ECS. both great company's. i've had my ASRock MB since Dec. of 09 and it still going strong. replaced my CPU with AMD Athlon II X 4 and added a 2nd 4850!
My x58 Black is a capable overclocker.
Hope these are good boards that OCs well. Good for ECS indeed. Look at MSI, way back then, I had the impression they are for entry levels in the ranks of Jetway, Redfox etc.. Hope ECS follows as well
because their like vultures & they know DFI who once made enthusiast boards are on the verge of death (or currently in limbo - with no members of staff willing to confirm the rumours or explain whats going on behind the scenes) well at least ECS got plenty of space to muscle in on the market.
Abit = defunct
DFI = on the way out.
the last hurdle really is if their boards can take on Asus or Gigabytes boards - 2 of the biggest names in the mobo market
I had a setup with the ECS KA3-MVP board and to this day I would have to say it was my 2nd favorite board(2nd behind the Abit KR7A-RAID). Even though it had the CAS Lat couldn't be changed issue I never once had issues with the board.
I had an old ecs p4m800-m7, with pentium 4 oced to 3ghz!
which lasted for 3 years
but now my mobo is not working anymore...

Thanks Vincent! Having that bit of support makes me far more likely to buy ECS again!
That's pretty good to see a rep in here.
ECS P67H2-A, I will have to remember this name.
Wow 24usb ports, I almost take that as a challenge.
Something about seeing a rep looking around the Forums makes me think good things about a company...Specially when it's a company I like
Truth be told when I upgrade to a new platform I usually go with ECS
Price and quality is always the determining factor and when you consider that it's nearly impossible to beat ECS...
My next board is gonna be a Black Series board
nah, not as cool as the MSI790fx slick OC knob. Easy to OC and it maintains the OC after restarting or resuming from S3.
I have 3 ECS boards (2 black edition ones) run perfect for years now.
Agreed. I haven't used an ECS board in a professional build for a while and after this thread will be taking a good look at their products.
Thank you for posting, Vin.
Sweet! I've worked with a couple different ECS boards in the past... I cant say theres much to fault for the low price they charge.
DFI´s ex guys from the LanParty unit could make ECS mobos miles better...
