It is true that if you thoroughly explore these forums the AsRock seems to be the only board on your list lacking any real outstanding issues. With that said, AsRock historically has made very low quality boards IMO. I have had a little bit of experience with the P67s however and I must say these seem much
better to me. If you like the look of it, I say go for it. Also, I've had nothing but good experiences with the GIGABYTE boards, so if like me you prefer the way they look over everything else realize that there are plenty of people happy with them and any problems you encounter can be fixed 99% of the time. I have two friends with B3 P8P67s (Not PROs mind you but I don't think it matters) and they've both encountered cold boot trouble. Keep in mind that in order to get to 5ghz at 24/7 voltage you're going to need a decent chip. The motherboard doesn't have everything to do with it.Edited by loveadventurer - 4/22/11 at 12:15pm
