  1. Personally I'd avoid ASRock and Biostar motherboards. I've had problems with them in the past. Gigabyte and ASUS however are very good.
    Try searching for the ASUS equivalent (P8H61M) or the Gigabyte equivalent (GA-H61M).

    Bear in mind that I've had problems with ASRock and Biostar but many have not and the same goes for ASUS and Gigabyte. It's just my personal opinion
  2. Older ASRock boards were problematic. However sometime in 2010 they seem to have turned over a new leaf.. In fact they are some of the most well reviewed ones on Newegg now.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%20600238945&IsNodeId=1&name=LGA%202011

    Look 6 of the top 12 are ASRock.

    2 of the top 8 are ASRock..

    Some food for thought??

    Since when is an H61 based motherboard equivalent to a Z68 based motherboard? You're going from a chipset that supports overclocking, integrated graphics and SSD caching (Z68).....to a chipset that's barely even functional(H61). If you're going to post inaccurate information, why bother?

    Was probably a typo. I apologize.

    Yes AlderonnX I've noticed that trend. That's actually good for everyone. Competition=better products. And many people here seem to like ASRock. Maybe I'll give them another shot in the future
