Sorry for your problems, Joey. I can sympathise with you. In my opinion, it does not matter which brand you go with. I've been in the same position as you with an MSI board, they even refused to talk to me. I'm currently using an Asus board. But, I had to order 4 of them before I got one that worked. Others can tell you the same stories about Asrock. Although I have to say my Asrock P67 is the most stable board I have ever had. But, don't try technical support. Again, I don't think it matters which brand except EVGA. I sure wish they made a good Z68 or Z77 board. They have excellent tech support. I wish Asus, Gigabyte and Asrock would take a lesson from EVGA.

Yeah I know it is just my luck that it happens to be gigabyte,but what I hated the most is the lack of support you get from them,it took a week just to exchange the board. I allways only used asus,and never got problems, but like you said you had 4 asus boards that didnt work,so I geuss it comes down to luck. But I still dont like gigabyte

Well, my problem is I don't like any of them. But, what choice do you have? Asus seems to be either you get a good one or it doesn't work. Nothing in between.

In my experience I know Gigabyte and ASRock have people who don't care if you got a bad board or not. You RMA one, they send back the same one "fixed" with magical incantations and say, "well it worked here for us".
I bought a new ASRock 990FX Fatality Pro which never did post properly. They of course blamed my hardware. This is the same story through FOUR RMAs and countless emails and several phone calls. They now will not even answer emails not give me the name of someone who actually knows something. Yes, 4 RMAs and I still have a POS board and am ~$200 lighter.

You never get a new board from the manufacturer no matter what they may tell you, it's one someone else returned and they "fixed and tested" it for you. Gigabyte even told me to uninstall w7 and reinstall XP, how intelligent is that?

Yeah that sucks the most, I think they dont care because one user that decides to not buy their products anymore wont effect them at all,and its not as if you have allot of other brand name choices! But yeah,that was my Sunday evening,had to fix my pc. I am not even going to get another x79 I think I will just stick with what I got now,old or not, and wait till evga brings out a special edition or something

Zepher - Yeah I used asus aswell and was lucky to have never gotten a problem ither,but other people can say the same with gigabyte or asrock too,it just luck of the pic. But yeah I agree Asus is known for qaulity boards.

Steve - Thanx for the link, I know about those boards,but am hoping for a limited reliece or gaming edition, I do like the first two with the dual cpu support. Not sure if it will fit my chassis,although I saw on google a guy did fit one like that with very minor modding(added two holes for screw) And I allready have a 2011 cpu,so I am going for a x79 board, maybe I should just suck it up and buy the clasified from evga,not the best performance board out there but it has to be better then gigabyte.
