I really like the specs of the ASRock Extreme4 Gen3, but one of the more common complaints is the occurrence of BSODs caused by the Etron USB 3.0 controller.

I'm wondering how prevalent this problem is. Does it seem worse because only those with problems are posting reviews, or is it inevitable that at some point I will have a problem with the USB 3.0 ports?

One of the reasons I want to get the P67 Extreme4 Gen3 over the Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 is the extra USB3.0 header, but the Extreme3 controller is ASMedia (supposedly more stable).

So can anyone tell me what I can expect? Does 1 out of 100 have problems, is it 50/50? What are your experiences? Thanks in advance for your help!
