Hey I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard which is currently a M5A97 which is not a terrible motherboard, but I want something with more control on my overclocks. I am having a very hard time deciding which motherboard will be the best fit, considering all of them score wonderfully in all reviews.

I have only ever used ASUS, so I'm always turning to any of their motherboards, but I am intrigued by the ASRock because it seems to have such a great layout/features. Unfortunately, I have never purchased anything ASRock so I am skeptical in buying this motherboard brand. Please help me pick a good MOBO to improve my rig. Thanks for the help guys!

Well out of these three, if you have no budget issues, then definitely the Asus CH V. Why?

Its a well specced out mobo, with good quality components and probably the best bios updates till date.

I know what you mean, I keep going back to the CH because of the great BIOS support and updates. Thanks for the input. I do have 0 budget constraints, I just want to make sure I am getting the best AM3+ board.

ive never had asus or asrock but my father-in-law has gone through a lot of asus before he changed and went with gigabyte, but that might of been bad luck. i went with the MSI 990X and i completely love it. the efi bios (mouse enabled) is amazing. out of those 3 i would go asrock just because of what i heard about asus, but to each his own.

Awesome thanks for your input, I don't know why I am making this such a hard decision but I hope by the time I hear everyones opinion I will have made my choice.
