Quick review of new build - 2500k & 7970 - Page 2

post #11 of 13
All motherboard companies have hits or misses. You cannot disregard that.

Judge by the board and customer service of the individual company.

I have personally used the extreme 3 motherboard and I rate it the best board at its price range.

This is a good build.

Asrock ROCKS and used to be owned by ASUS as I know and is not a very nice spin-ff that doesn't make ugly colored pastel boards.
