I'm a gigabyte fanboy, (GA-965P-DS3 to GA-P35-DS3R to GA-890FXA-UD5 to GA-Z68X-UD4-B3) but asus makes some good boards, I just wouldnt make my main system with one.

you want the ppl who actually make the boards? GB and ASUS and FOXCONN on your list actually make boards.

Intel outsources production.

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).

post #15 of 22
I have had the same gigabyte mobo for about 4 years now, with no problems
Not the best mobo's for ocn, but decent to say the least. but gigabyte does have the best mobo's around

Most people that I talk to that have Asus mobs say They have great boards but poor customer service, haven't tried an Asus mobo though, so can't really say how good it really is

Hope this helped, even just a little.

the way it goes with gigabyte is that after P45 X48 they realized that they sucked, that they couldn't market towards enthusiasts, as the enthusiast market grows. NOW they are putting their all into build quality, about a few years ago they found that their profits had exponentially grown and now they are worrying about the small things like BIOS, looks, and OC features, things only asus was able to get away with in whole.

You will like to listen to this, you gotta hear upto the end itll give you a behind the scenes picture of the past few years of motherboards.

It varies from board to board, but in general, there's no such thing as a bad mobo manufacturer. Your best bet is to just find individual reviews of each board or take recommendations for specific boards here.

Asus for example is typically a good mobo manufacturer, but according to Toms Hardware, their z68-v boards have limited functionality, so i'm avoiding those boards.

The best board makers to me are:
-Asus
-Gigabyte
