by some of the reviews of the people, it doesnt look that great. Intel, ASUS and Abit are good boards and from what ive heard are more stable

I agree with the majority, ECS isn't exactly known for quality motherboards.

Gigabyte DS3, ASUS P5B. Its not ECS's fault that the board doesnt clock well. It's nVidia's fault.
