well asrock I can't even believe I am going to say this, they should fire there tech guys! I don't want to get into it that much but the 990fx ASrock? if that is one you are waiting t see give up lol, they have none nada no 990 chipset
GigaByte's board is very sexy as hell to look at, I myself look at it and say wow Giga so the MSI big bang board failed so you copied it and put a AMD chip on it huh? I am not saying it won't be a good board but it just gives me a bad vibe IMHO
Biostar well it looks as if the used a old board, heat sinks are way to small on the south bridge, and just look at it you will see it is just horrid and I would never recommend it based on reviews I have seen of it in motion. In short it stinks
MSI well they have a good lay out and it seems to be a ok board, there has not been a lot of reviews on it yet to form a working opinion, but I am hopeful for it I hope it doesn't suffer the same bench results as the Giga with in all honesty MSI and GigaByte always seem to be about the same on there top end boards
ASUS well the SaberTooth is so far shaping up to be a contender it has the advantage of going in my case as well soon lol, already here just waiting for new rad so all done at once, I have friends with this board and read the reviews which in a way almost makes me feel like changing the others as the reviews are not really saying great things (not bad) The one friend I have seemed to be able to OC his cpu a lot further than before so I really am liking the RWR more than the reviews
ASUS the big dog CrossHair V (wish this had sound, I would have James Earl pissed off voice "anowsing" it) lol I say it will do very well in replacing the over priced 890 chip set I mean this is great in a way the last series the IV was and still is more money lol in fact the marketing has ripped people off in my opinion as they have now pulled the extreme from the selfs after selling just before release at a price of 299.99 and the V coming in at 239.99 I would be pissed if I just bought the extreme IV because they did plus up on it a lot in the past weeks!!!
Sorry about not saying anything about the board but that IV thing just makes me mad to think about, I would get ether the ST or the CH:V it really just biols down to color and lay out as they both are 990/950 with great PCB's
