For aftermarket heatsinks and friend's builds, evga is the way to go. Otherwise, I agree, MSI is the way to go.

You stick this in your friend's computers?

What about when the mobo/gpu goes bad? They deny the RMA because they took off the serial sticker and claim it was never there or claim there's bent pins on the mobo/the PCIe lanes caught fire because you didn't buy their aftermarket "power boost" to make up for their faulty design? What about when they need to sell off their old parts to upgrade and the warranty isn't transferable to the new buyer making it harder to find buyers?

They fixed the VRM issue awhile ago. They have sufficient VRMs now. Have you looked at their 900 series chipset boards?

the lowend boards are still crap. I've read somewhere here in OCN that it still lacks vrm protection on their entry level boards
