obviously, it doesn't happen to everyone, or Biostar wouldn't have been around for 20 years, but they do have a reputation for corner cutting and lower-quality parts.
I'd rank the major manufacturers in 5 tiers, from best to worst:
1st tier: Gigabyte, Asus
2nd tier: AMD, Intel reference boards
3rd tief: AS Rock, MSI, Zotac
4th tier: Biostar, ECS
5th tier: PC Chips (RIP), Jetway, Foxconn
