    Interesting, although I can't seem to shake the notion that 'Durathon' sounds like a brand of contraceptives...

    Damn you beat me to it :lol:

    Though i do question if people really need a MoBo resistant to high levels of humidity or caps rated for over 22 years of use.

    Depends on where you're living really. In Indochina or south america there's much higher levels of humidity then in EU/US ;)

    To me it sounds like a weird mix of Duron and Athlon.

    This sounds just like the existing features on existing motherboards, Gigabyte have had high humidity tight weaving on even their low-mid range boards for ages now.

    For me this just further confirms just how poor quality their boards have always been and that only now are they finally rising their quality to what everyone else has already been doing for years. Good on them for doing so and it's just a shame mobo makers like this are still around when seemingly better companies like Abit have since been lost.

    Either way I'll still be avoiding ECS boards and sticking with the likes of Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.

    Never seen or used a ECS board, so I am not sure what they are like but atleast if they had issues in the past they are atleast working on it.

    I can't even find anywhere that sell's them in the uk.
