Neoseeker has taken a look at ECS' KN1 Extreme. For those who are used to seeing ECS more as a lower end brand catering to OEM and beginner users, it seems the company has sent out a message in the form of the KN1: the new ECS is here to kick some booty. From start to finish this is an impressive entry into the higher end market for ECS, so check it out.
"For starters, stability is by far the most important aspect of any component as central to a computer system as a motherboard, and the KN1 has that box checked. There was no point during my two-day testing of the KN1 in which I experienced stability problems. All of the on-board components just worked, and at no point did I have to participate in quirk discovery/utilization (as is common with many other motherboards). Coupled together with its near-complete domination of our benchmark charts, and it is obvious that this motherboard is one to be reckoned with."
