Default Nforce4 board that won't cost a lot

Check out this ECS board guys. Price wise, probably the best Nforce4 board.. But, I hear the overclocking capabilities are not that great. What's the verdict?

well i had the k7s5a admititly its a older board but i HATED it had no end of problems as did every1 else i knew who had one (about 4 ppl in total) i would never trust ecs again. u get what u pay for motherboard wise. i would look to spend more on it and cut down on sumthing else in your system. in the present market i would only look at the DFI, MSI or ABIT nForce4 boards

yea its great, have had no problems with it. ive overclockered nicely atm, im looking to go higher but havent had much time to play around with settings, atm ive only upped the HHT to 240, my ram timings and all my voltages are still standard and im still not goin over 36C so im looking to go alot higher.
