The majoirty of ecs boards are not meant to be oc'd...but the new 780G black edition board should be a decent oc'er.

But yeah for a stock system, id say ecs is fine.

yeah. i think the only reason people give ECS flack is because they aren't overly stable, which makes sense cause they were only really designed to run how they come...

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
