I recently bought my first Asrock board a fullhd model, I was so impressed that I bought another for my next build. Again I was impressed. I like what I have seen so far and they build out easily. Now this is not to say ALL Asrock boards are good but 2 for 2 so far and I WILL buy another when the right deal comes along. I build two or 3 NEW computers a week so for me to say this is quite a compliment/

Cheers!
Chris

Hey, it's better than the curry color some Asus P35 boards used to have.

Lower-end Asus motherboards' power connectors are always in awful places. It's like that on my P5Q SE too.

Yep...MSI's P43 Neo3-F definitely sucks at OCing. It'll let me do 3.6GHz (378x9.95) on my E7200 but it wouldn't let me do 400x9 which really confuses me. They need to fix that mess with a BIOS update.
