no intel boards do not suck
they are a great reliable product if your not overclocking..
Enthusiast boards tend to go for Asus and Gigabyte then MSI...
Well, yeah, which is why I think Intel boards suck.
Reliable? Sure. Flexibility? Almost zero.
They also tend to have a pretty liberal definition of what constitutes "overclocking." Personally, I do not think something as mundane as adjusting the BIOS settings to get a stick of 1.65V DDR3 to work at stock settings falls into the "enthusiast" category. And it's certainly not something that ought to trigger a full system failure that's irreversibly hard-wired into the board. More like, it's something that ought to be a bare minimum requirement for any motherboard, period, and the fact that they don't support something so basic is more like building a flawed motherboard. To market something like that as "extreme" is just the icing on the cake.
Basically, I would avoid Intel at all costs unless you're building a stock-setting computer for work. Otherwise, you're just setting yourself up for buying another motherboard because of some unpleasant surprise that comes completely out of the blue.
