You just had some bad luck. Asrock these days is one of the most solid options for Mobo's, together with Gigabyte and Asus.
I wouldn't suggest MSI though, they used to have some problems with their mobo's on the 1155 chipsets. Although that might be fixed and MSI may be perfectly fine now. In which case, just pick the Asrock gen3 tongue.gif

yeh as i said, i get the impression i was just unlucky so i dont want to bash asrock, just wanted to share my experience. if i hadn't had a bad experience then i would say that extreme3 gen3 looks really, really good for the cash! i'd still pick the asus though haha tongue.gif also ive only heard bad stuff about msi lol so i probably would agree to stear clear of them even though i have no personal experience!

thanks for all the suggestions guys. i was thinkin an asus or a gigabyte. my bros current board is an asus and has been trouble free. tho his bios does take me a min or 2 work out everytime i go in it. lol (just the lay out and naming of things). i currently have a gigabyte(first one) and is one of the best boards i've ever had! (second to one of my old dfi boards) never used an asrock. so as it's my brother rig and not mine i'll prob leave the asrock and go with stuff i've used. don't like gettin folk a make i haven't used. just a confidence thing for them. if it was my rig and was advised one i'd prob ive it a go.

again thanks

Asrock is a part or i can say depart ment which works under ASUS

SRock was originally spun off from Asus in 2002 in order to compete with companies like Foxconn for the commodity OEM market. Since then, ASRock has also gained momentum in the DIY sector and plans for moving the company upstream began in 2007 following a successful IPO on the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

ASRock has garnered a reputation for good value (cost/performance) from tech websites, including awards and recommendations for an array of products.

ASRock selling eight million motherboards in 2011, compared with ECS and MSI selling seven million apiece.The figures, which are quoted over on DigiTimes, put ASRock in third place, behind Asustek and Gigabyte. It's a significant improvement over the company's showing in 2009, with 2010's figures pushing ASRock ahead of both MSI and ECS.

ASRock is currently owned by Pegatron Corporation. .
