But back on-topic, most of the P67 MSI boards and a lot of the Gigabyte boards have been "deactivated" or are sold out. Something is surely up with the P67 chipset and I have a feeling that it goes beyond supply and demand issues. Which reminds me, I have a MSI P76AG45 / 2600k / GTX470 build to do tomorrow for a customer. Should be fun and I can't wait to see what this puppy can do.
A) I am a professional system builder and ive seen first hand that ASRock makes junk. But im more than willing to accept the fact that after years of making crap ASRock is finally making quality products. It is yet to be seen if they will continue to make good quality boards, but their P67 boards are pretty darn good.
B) Im building with a Biostar TP67B+, an i7 2600K and a 580 tomorrow and im excited for similar reasons. It will be great to get some hands on experience with Sandybridge.

Stop swearing constantly or someone is going to report you. Surely you noticed OCN is replacing your apparent lack of vocabulary with "****."
Redhat is nuts but he is 110% brilliant. Thats not a battle you want to start because it cant be won.
ASRock has made crap for a long time, and its understandable for many of us with more experience to not trust such a sudden turn around. Im hesitant to use or recommend ASRock for the same reasons Redhat and Philly dont like them, but im willing to admit that for at least this generation ASRock is not making crap. Or at least thats my analysis. But ive been wrong before.
