Currently have got a Gigabyte P67A-UD4 (rev 1) and not satisfied at all. Long boot times, unstable at small overclocks (4.3 -> unstable, boot loops & bios crashes so it's reverted to original BIOS again).
So I'm getting an ASUS. Never had any problem with ASUS (I didn't have any problems with Asrock or MSI neither). And, don't say I'm the only one, plenty of people have the same issue's like me, not only in P67, but also on Z68 (check out the Gigabyte topic)

SB motherboards all have problems. I personally like my GB board, but I have a hunch I could get a better OC out of an ASUS P8Z68-v Pro.

I made the mistake of getting a Gigabyte board to replace my Asus. Ended up with worse performance and genuinely idiotic placement of the PCI-e 1x slot basically you could not fit any kind of card in that thing because the RAM slots would interfere. What's even worse is I tried ordering a completely different model Gigabyte board more recently to give it another chance then saw that it had the same freaking problem and promptly cancelled my order. Obviously, I'm an Asus fanboy, but not because I like the slogan but because I've never gotten a substandard component from the company.

Really? Your P5Q is substandard to the mighty Gigabyte EP45-UD3P

Using ASUS high-end boards (Rampage series), I have made two builds with no problems. Using ASUS low-end boards, I have had two DoA boards, and two boards that failed within a month. I have done 5 builds with low-end Gigabyte boards, all of which have no problems. It says to me that if a company can't get the low-end right, then they aren't superior to a company that can. Get the gigabyte, in my opinion.

i have just gotten a gigabyte board..... and it seems to be ok...... what i hate about asus boards the nb and sb heat cinks tend to pull away from the board as the bord starts to warp..... gigabyte..... only had 1 board b4 this one and it was for such a short time i can not say.

i love asus customer care. with gigabyte i always had an answer tha tdid not answer my question ..... so they answered me with a question and they say we do not do overclocking etc...

so for me asus

Doubtful, like cl3p20 said the OC is all in the cpu with sandy bridge. With the ud4 my 2500k does 5Ghz at 1.35 - 1.36V loaded in prime, I bet it would be the same on Asus, MSI, Biostar, etc...
Used to be about getting a good mobo that can handle high bclk, now it's about finding a cpu that has a high max multi, the mobo is just about the features you want/need.

I would say Gigabyte but Asus has a very very cool EFI (with auto-overclock, ...) whereas Gigabyte keeps the good-old BIOS

The Gigabyte Z68 series boards use EFI, the P67 series the bios supports EFI but GB has not released an EFI bios for it (YES I know EFI and bios are contradictory).

As far as EFI boards booting faster than BIOS boards, really it is subjective. The more addons are running like extra raid controllers the more time either board will take. However my particular Asus board is rather fast on bootup.
