Now I wonder if I should wait. Was getting set to buy my 2600k / 2700k here in about 2 weeks or so depending but now maybe not.
It's going to be interesting what ROG does bring out. Wonder how long they will wait to show it?
I know this, based on all the X79 boards so far, key words: so far, This ASROCK board has my vote.
What competition? ASRock and ASUS are the same company
ASRock is the lowend sister company of ASUS.
Like Chevrolet is to Cadillac.
Basically, ASRock, was a subsidiary of ASUS, a spin off, to sell into the slightly more 'bargain' part of the market. The differences vary, from the
overall lower quality, using inexpensive parts, etc.. ASRock was a 'cheaper' board.
However, some of their current ASRock boards are quite good, my opinion is, based on years of working with both brands, ASRock still will never have the quality of a ASUS.Edited by t0adphr0g - 10/9/11 at 10:58pm
