Asus for sure. I had an 870-G45. It blew a MOSFET. It also had some other annoying quirks like hearing the HDD noise through the built-in audio.

870 isn't bad, it's just I would stay away from the MSI. I think Gigabyte has the best 870 out there in terms of features and stability. If you want to X-Fire though, stay away.

I hit a 3.6GHz OC easily with stock voltage - only upping CPU clocks and lowering NB Multi to 8x.
