Yeah, except for uneven QC on the ECS boards... Still remember two different friends of mine jumping on the same deal to build PCs and then wrestling for months with configuration issues tied to different board revisions. Then both systems caught the capacitor plague. That was back in the Athlon Thunderbird days, but I never did trust ECS after seeing all that happen.Sad news.
I really liked the cpu and mobo deals they had way back in the day. I'm talking about the ECS deals they had back in the Core 2 Duo and Athlon 64 X2 days.
Their big print ad would be in the Sunday paper. I would be rummaging through it quickly to get to the computer parts section to see what deal they had.
Those were some fun days.
