Asrock z77 extreme 4 build quality vs gigabyte z77x-ud3h
I am going to buy asrock z77 extreme 4,
But one thing that bothers me is the build quality of this board.
I am a great fan of gigabyte & there ultra durable concepts even in low end boards.
Since i am going for a extreme series in asrock i guess its quality will be same.
Am i going to miss the ultra duarble stuffs in gigabyte.
The asrock costs me 10000 INR ~ 179 $ but the gigabyte z77x-ud3h cost me 12800 INR ~ 229 $
I am thinking of to choose the asrock for the 2800 INR (50$) diff.
Am i missing the quality here ???
is the quality difference worth for the money ???
What about high temperature, electrostatic and power failure protections in asrock z77e4 board ???
I only see the humidity protection in asrock.
thx in advance.

Six of one, both are decent MOBO's and the failure rates on both are <3%. The ASRock does offer its 'dehumidifier' cycling but the Gigabyte's PCB has been improved to handle high humidity ... repels moisture.
As far as (INR 50$) depends, if both MOBO's have all the features you want and can afford then go with the cheapest. There are better and worst MOBO's.
/Edit - Neither should be run with a PSU without Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) or an Anti-Surge Protector. My preference is a good UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply).
Go for the Extreme4 and save some money to buy something better in the future Both are good boards
They are both decent but Extreme4 the only negative I have for this motherboard is that it slips outside of typical ATX specifications. It’s 3cm thinner than a standard ATX motherboard and as a result may lack secure mounting on the far side since this isn’t a common size, which also means you should be very careful when plugging in the 24-pin ATX motherboard power – as the motherboard may flex.Still a decent mobo but i personally wouldn't buy it
definitely get the ASRock. At that price difference. Wow.
In Taiwan, Extreme 4 is $145 and UD3H is $127 (USD)
Yeah lol. Indian prices are always going bonkers.
