LOL. No.

Nuff said.

Asus and Gigabyte make the best boards. MSI is debatably in there too.

You use way too many exclamation marks... I'm guessing maybe you have issues with RMA's because of this?

I've never had an issue with ANY company for an RMA. Ever. Slow shipping and service aside, I always get what I request.

No need to shout, used the service center before with no issues. Just a phone call away. Most user RMA are PICNIC regardless.

Furthermore, say goodbye to cache over clocking with EVGA. AKA 15gflops+ Whetstone performance.

I'm gonna be completely honest, I think all the new motherboards x99 and the z170 look like utter garbage, I don't want rubbish LED's all over my stuff the designs are shocking, you know the kinda face only a mother would love sort of thing.

I feel that manufacturers actually forgot about the consumers that like the clean look and don't want in your face useless features, that literally have no benefit what's so ever, it may be that the board is rubbish, but there isn't another board which even remotely looks clean. so unless anyone knows of one which I may have overlooked in my research feel free to recommend it.

Supermicro.

They make the best server boards, their forays into the gaming mobo market seem solid.

I personally want to try a Supermicro gaming board. They OC well and are stable as balls.

And Supermicro CS is unbelievably good. They e-mailed me a revised BIOS over the week-end when I couldn't boot from my Areca PCI-E controller with a newly released board years ago. I used to be into the dual-XEON thing back then - seemed fashionable ... rolleyes.gif

Absolutely, glad to hear they still do things like this.

Definitely a force to be reckoned with.

*edit*

LOL "seemed fashionable".

Call, give CC, cross-ship, ship bad one back, CC hold cleared and there was much rejoicing.

Had an X99Pro go pop, squish...Cicero.... CPU and ram survived and are running happily the replacement MB. It had been sporadically rebooting with no error indication in the days prior, after months of 24/7 solid performance.

Debugged, swapped, isolated to MB, called, told them all of that and voila, had a new MB in short order.

So, I must be doing it wrong? Maybe US vs some other place's policies?

I didn't know they had an X99 board out - I am definitely tempted. Downloaded the manual ...

Yeah I have nothing but good things to say about ASUS customer support after dealing with them in the past month with my x99 build. I probably spent 2-3 hours on the phone with them diagnosing the first board I got which turned out to be faulty. RMA'd it through Newegg, who I also had absolutely no problems with either. Maybe I'm just special.
