If their QC hasnt changed in the last 3 years then this will be a steaming pile of cow dung. I have yet to have an ECS mobo last more than a few hours without some peice of hardware on the mobo going up in smoke literally. I avoid ECS like the plague. I still tell people that ECS stands for Extremely Cheap S***. My best guess is you will use that debug LED more than any other feature on that board.

I don't know through my build history I have actually had 2 builds were I used an ECS, and had phenomenal results. The first was an Athlon XP I believe, and the second a Athlon 64 2nd or 3rd generation. They both served me flawlessly for a couple of years even OC'd with no issues etc, at all. I think with ECS boards as well as value boards in general you have to know them inside and out before making a purchase (hopefully with reviews from active users as a first step)!
ECS? Wow, I didn't know they were still in business!

I've had bad luck with them too. So, I don't buy them.
Aren't most of the H67 boards supporting HDMI playback without a discrete Video Card?
