I didn't quite mean make make in the literal sense. I meant when you buy a board that has a name on it (like you can get a board that is "Intel"/"Biostar"/"Asus"/"Acer" and so on), which ones are usually good/well made boards. Not who actually physically makes them but rather which brands are trustworthy and reliable is what I was getting at. Sorry for the misunderstanding over that lol. Love the posts so far, I'd like to see more because I know there has to be a few more "brands" that are reliable and well made.
I ended up getting a Biostar p43-a7 board for Intel processors (LGA775 Socket, has P43 and ICH10 chipsets). It seems to be a rather solid motherboard, but I'm kinda clueless when it comes to manually overclocking so I don't quite know it's potential in that area and can use help (made thread with board name in title if you are interested in seeing some of the bios settings and such). However, it seems to be a lot better than my previous Biostar, which wasn't bad either. In short, I'd add Biostar to the list of dependability for stable systems (non-OC'd as I can't say if it's good and stable while OC'd).
