People used to say the same negative things about Biostar before they proved they could build great budget overclocking boards consistently. Making a blanket statement that all ASRock boards are garbage is just plain ignorant.

For what it is worth, I have been selling, building and supporting PC's since 1994. I started seriously overclocking back with a Celeron 333 overclocking it to 500 mhz. I have been addicted every since. I only do it on the side now (because when I do it 40 hours a week I don't work on my own stuff..because it feels too much like work) but still build about 10 gaming systems a year for friends and family or friends of friends and family.

I am OLD and old school....

It normally doesn't matter to the customer what brand their motherboard is (the only brand I really ever get requests for is Nvidia) so I can get a first-hand look at their quality. They have quite a few of the P67 boards out so it shouldn't be much of a hassle to find one I like.

But you are right. I shouldn't judge based on past experiences.

With these motherboard manufacturer debates, just remember some of these companies will be out of business in a few years. The motherboard market certainly can't handle all these companies its not exactly a booming market.

I bought an Abit P35 just before they quit supporting their motherboards, I got lucky and found a group where folks were modifying the last beta bios with up to date southbridge drivers and that board is still going strong with a new SSD and full Intel RST driver support.

But I got lucky, in 3 years will MSI, Biostar, Gigabyte, or EVGA still be making motherboards? will they still be releasing bios updates? Who knows? I hate to say it but the AsusRock boards are probably the safest bet if you plan on keeping it for several years. I do like Biostar though, man they make a stable board, Asus should have hired the ex-Abit engineers.
