I know that both Asus and Gigabyte otherwise have a horrible RMA process when you have to claim warranty.
I've read that EVGA is easy, but they currently only make Intel boards and my next board will probably be AMD.
So of all the AMD motherboard manufacturers, which ones offer the most straightforward and hassle free RMA process?
Don't know about this.
In terms of overall reliability/quality I doubt there are major differences between brands these days, right?
First Question is - what featureset do you Need.
How much do you want so spend?
If you looking something cheaper go for MSI Meg Unify x570 or Asus TUF Gaming x570...or even B450 like MSI Motar Max or something…
MSI is praised for there easy BIOS and easy Memory OC - Gigabyte has IMHO good build but many people dislike their BIOS and the cheaper boards like Aorus Elite seem to have some issues with Memory OC - the Master and Xtreme are great but a bit pricier.
If your are looking into a Workstation build - the Asus Pro WS x570-ACE is woth a look with ECC support, U.2-drive support and Thunderbold 3.
If money isn't an issue and you want max. performance look into the Asrock Aqua x570.
Options are plenty…here a good overview bei bullzoid/Game Nexus...
If RMA is your concern by it from Amazon - they are usually hassle free - at least in the EU - but you need to by it directly from Amazon and not from the market place...but might cost you a premium compared to other vendors...
