picking a quality board seems not easy after checking several discussion threads titles with specific brand vs another like this.

I am getting confused coz French shops usually don't recommend gigabyte boards. Either Asus or Msi is common brands built in gaming systems. is it because of brand preference of real quality performance.

They all make good boards and it comes down to the board that you pick from them. All 3 companies have a great record and fan base and I know for me I go with Asus because I always have. Nothing aginst the other boards just I like Asus.

I have no idea about the exact market share in your country. You don't really care about the RMA rate. From my point of view, the rate is floating, depending on sales volume, models, brands and so on. Don't be fooled by the out-of-date statics. Check the latest statics released by the same source. Some models from gigabyte also has higher RMA rate. overall, the RMA rate of 3 brands is floating in a specific range...not too much surprise.
Unluckily, it's obvious that the quality of Asrock products is disappointing....:lol:

- Gigabyte 2,02% (contre 1,43%)
- ASROCK 2,27% (contre 2,09%)
- ASUS 2,31% (contre 1,86%)
- MSI 2,60% (contre 1,83%)

Les taux de retour pour panne sont globalement en hausse sur les cartes mères, mais Gigabyte conserve la première position même si les constructeurs restent globalement assez proches. Parmi les modèles vendus à plus de 100 unités (mais en italique, donc moins de 200 si vous avez lu la page précédente), voici les cinq qui sont revenus les plus souvent :

- 9,65% ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
- 6,96% ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0
- 5,03% ASRock Z77 Pro3
- 4,95% ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77
- 4,44% ASRock H87M

Si on regarde plus spécifiquement les taux sur les cartes mères LGA 1155/1150 Z77/Z87 Express, voici le classement obtenu :

- Gigabyte 2,13%
- ASUS 2,97%
- ASRock 3,23%
- MSI 3,33%

Les premières et dernières positions globales sont les mêmes, mais celles intermédiaires sont inversées.

Voici maintenant ce qu'il en est pour les cartes mères en H77/H87 Express :

- Gigabyte 1,37%
- ASUS 1,77%
- MSI 2,30%
- ASRock 2,46%

ASRock descend encore d'un cran pour passer derrière MSI. Les taux sont globalement plus bas que ceux sur les équivalents "Z", ces cartes étant logiquement moins soumises à stress : elles accueillent généralement des configurations moins haut de gamme et ne sont pas utilisées pour l'overclocking processeur.

Enfin les taux de retour pour tous les modèles Z77/Z87 vendus à plus de 100 unités sur la période sont les suivants :

- 5,03% ASRock Z77 Pro3
- 4,95% ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77
- 4,33% ASUS Z87-A
- 4,13% MSI Z77A-G45
- 4,07% Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H
- 3,85% ASUS P8Z77-V Pro
- 3,47% MSI Z87-G41 PC MATE
- 3,42% ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87
- 3,29% ASUS P8Z77-V LX
- 3,28% ASUS P8Z77-V LK
- 3,09% MSI Z87-G45 GAMING
- 2,88% ASUS P8Z77-V LE PLUS
- 2,82% ASUS Z87-PRO
- 2,14% Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
- 2,08% MSI Z77A-G43
- 2,01% ASUS P8Z77-V
- 1,94% Gigabyte Z77N-WIFI
- 1,13% ASUS CM Z87-K
- 0,00% MSI Z87-G43

very helpfull when picking the right (intel) motherboard ...
if you intend to overclock cpu with unlocked multiplier
you should search for 6+2/8 phase motherboard and higher
(real 8 phase design not just doublers used)
and with components which have at least 3 from 4 ranking in the list ...
