z87x-OC heavily outsells others in its price range, that is a given and from vendors, however that isn't the point, maybe look here:

Who are getting fed information from man? Must not be someone who is using it right
IMO buy one or try it yourself, a lot of what I am seeing people complain n here, there are two guys given free boards here, i wouldn't be surprised if either had a bad time with them. What one couldn't use his SSD(i have the same make and model(even size) SSD it works fine on mine), and the other one had a defective board, but who knows maybe both are bad as they came from the same batch most likely.
Otherwise I would focus on getting to 4K memory instead of posting in this thread for no reason.
unwillingness to adapt isn't my fault or GBT's fault, you gotta try the new BIOS it doesn't suck, this latest release is actually pretty good. Also my helps threads are long, but I don't get many issues posted anymore, also it is better to have them centralized so they get fixed rather than scattered so they don't Also i would say 50% of "issues" are lack of user education on how to do something.
So how many sales did MSI lose first quarter? I can tell you ASUS isn't doing well.Edited by Sin0822 - 7/8/13 at 8:11am
