I've worked on one system that used the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 and loved it.
I am building embedded systems using ASROCK Z77 boards, and while I am happy with them, supporting the customers who use them has become somewhat of an issue. Almost all tech support inquires directly relate to issues with the motherboard and its firmware.
Thanks. I also keep reading mixed reviews about the ASROCK; some say it's fantastic, others have issues with it day 1, and many have had issues with the RMA if they are dealing with the manufacturer.
Unless there is something specifically about the z77 chipset that you need, the Asus board is the better board.
So I did good in buying that MOBO when it was on sale? I was planning to buy ASUS P8Z77-V LX in the first place, which is listed $140 on newegg (which would be ~$165 for me thanks to shipping), but since that one was about the same thanks to the sale (after all the price cuts, shipping, and when I get my mail in rebate, I would've paid $175; $10 more than the MOBO i was originally looking at)
So, is it safe to say that it's a great MOBO for $175 and that I should not be looking for any other options to RMA it, even if they are Z77 at around the same price range?
