    This is the cleanest mobo I've ever seen :eek: I think it would look nice in an TG build.

    Well , I run a shop and I confirm that ECS is a name that no one wants to see in his / her pc

    1 ethernet, no onboard wifi, no usb 3.1 2gen or type C and it was originally $300. Even at $250 its too expensive especially like others have said, the quality is already in question out the gate not only ECS but NZXT itself. You know what they say, no matter how much you polish a turd, its still just a turd

    It's a mainstream board at best, priced as a high-end board and lacking actual "high-end" features....and made by one of the worse ODMs possible. ECS, Pegatron and Foxconn all produce motherboards for other companies. Either Pegatron or Foxconn would have been better options than ECS....

    I have to agree. Outside of the AM2 ECS blacks board, the few I have used sucked. I really do like how this looks though. But since I already have a X370 board I really like, and this is an intel board, I wont be getting one for that kinda price point.

    Pretty sure my $129 X370 Killer SLI/sc is better then this board.

    I really liked its looks/design also but as others mentioned, its price is a bit high even after the lowered msrp price.

    And although it seems like a decent mobo its not without its issues based on a few reviews floating around.

    5 meters of led strip is around 10~15$, for the end consumer. 10 meters for ~22$. Did NZXT bundle 50 meters of led strips?
    lol

    Here's hoping you are being satirical/sarcastic...:D I love this line in the product description: "All-metal motherboard cover finished using the same paints and processes as their cases"--it isn't the motherboard itself that appears "clean," it's the metal, motherboard cover (shroud, really) placed on top of the actual motherboard that is "clean" looking here, imo--as only about 2% of the actual motherboard underneath is visible. I mean, that has to do wonders for the heat retention properties of the real motherboard underneath, eh?

    OTOH, if such a black-painted, metal, motherboard cover could be had for larger/better motherboards with more features and slots, it might be just the ticket for an open-air build of some kind designed to be complete sans a case of any kind. Maybe. This cover would provide the motherboard with the same protection of a metal case, at least for the top of the motherboard, but wouldn't serve to protect anything else in the system (PSU, GPU, RAM, etc.) besides the motherboard--or protect even the bottom-side of the motherboard. Concept doesn't do much for me.

    Sort of horrid to imagine it at all, isn't it?...:rolleyes: Ugh. And to think they are scratching their heads wondering why popping our motherboards into toaster ovens doesn't go over big with our crowd...! Amazing.
