Best/Worst AMD Motherboard Brands

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
What are, in your opinion some of the best AMD brands of motherboards, and some of the worst?

I'll keep a compilation

Best and works well with Linux:
Asus
MSI
DFI
Gigabyte

Don't work well with Linux, but good:
Biostar
Foxconn

Okay, but not great:
Pcchips
Asrock
ECS
eVGA
Abit

Worst:
Jetway

I'm not sure of eVGA's Linux capabilities, so I'll move it when I get that information

Why do Americans and other Consumers on other region primarly the North American region, go direct to ASUS for RMA
Here in UK we go to the seller, and they HAVE to take it back, wheather they want to or not, and its their job to RMA it to ASUS

Well asus took it back and "repaired" it but i got it back and all they did was reset the cmos. it continued to show signs of failure and instability. i had to rma it again and the last time they replaced it.

I don't really have a problem with PCCHIPS quality-wise, but as far as BIOS/Overclocking...they aren't very good.

I'm not sure I agree with bad for PCChips, they aren't the best for overclocking, but they don't seem to be terrible quality-wise in my experience.
