I've heard of the UD4's loop problems, but I also hear abut the Asus having some cold boot problems. My last mobo was an Asus and I had to RMA it becuase of cold booting problems. Does the 3rd revision still have this problem a lot, or has it pretty much been fixed? That is the only thing making me lean towards AsRock instead of Asus.

Can't go wrong with MSI P67A GD65 or GD55 or even the GD80

Thanks, helps me a bit. Still deciding on a mobo, and I prefer to stick with ASUS since I've had the most experience with them and never had any issues.

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.
