Summary: I took a chance with ECS after buying many different brands of motherboards over the years. I had seen good ratings on other websites, so I ordered this budget board feeling like I was taking a chance. My intuition was right because this board was broken on arrival. It would not POST. I cleared the CMOS and it still wouldn't post. I swapped parts and troubleshooted for a couple hours before I gave up and admitted it was a problem with the motherboard.
