my asrock board is by far the best board i have ever purchased
ive seen too many problems with gigabyte board over the years to touch the brand
asus used to be my go to company
asrock used to make pretty crappy stuff but they stepped up their game in the last few years, a lot. this is a small note about asrock boards but they have the mountings for cpu heatsinks from other sockets. i got to reuse the cooler off my socket 775 computer on my new 1055. saved me 50 bucks. (which is a lot when you consider the cost of a decent board is only 100+.) should also point out the new asrock boards appear to be the best overclockers, i can get my cpu to run at 5.1ghz+ and even then the only thing holding me back is fear of too high a vcore and heat.
