Thread Starter 
I am in the market for a new 1155 motherboard, and I have pretty much narrowed my choices down to the Gigabyte GA-Z77-UD5H or the ASUS Maximus V (probably Formula). My goal is to get something that will be rock solid. Which is the better buy? I am inclined to get the ASUS, because I can afford it and, well, go big or go home, right? I'm open to being talked out of it, though. What are you recommendations?

You can buy rock solid boards for cheaper than that.

As far as these 2, as much as I like my UD5H, and think that Formula is just overpriced, it doesn't look like Gigabyte cares about BIOS updates of last generation of boards after they release new gen at all. We're still stuck with BETA BIOSes (unofficial too) that brought Windows 8 boot features. Don't get me wrong though, latest stable BIOS is stable and it's also over a year old, but BETAs that add additional functionality are still WIP with issues here and there.

As far as cheaper options go, I would look for MSI GD55 and GD65. Also Asus boards like P8Z77-V.
