Anandtech tells you about it

looks impressive, particularly the overclocking. unfortunately, it's saddled with the SB450 and limited voltage settings (1.55 cpu and 3.0 memory), but...well, just read, or skim, or look at the pretty, colorful pictures and graphs.

they didn't include any holy grail DFI motherboards, so fanbois will no doubt cry "foul", but no matter how you look at it, this new board from ECS is an impressive overclocker. also, from the cpu-z screenshots on page 4, it looks like they're using stock voltages.

I may have found my next motherboard...

i saw that review too. looks very impressive for an ECS board. i, however, have had many friends having boards of th elitegroup dieing on hem, so i don't think that would be my board... why in the world did they use the 450 northbridge??
