Which motherboard to buy?

I keep reading the reviews about the motherboards and it turns me off from buying it. Every motherboard has negative reviews. I mean i could buy it but i dont want to go through rma. What if i bend the pins when im taking out cpu? I dont want to be out of a motherboard and my money. Any help is appreciated.

  2. User reviews is based on user experience and a person that gets a faulty product is more likely to write a review to complain than a person that is Happy with the purchase. For example if you are looking at products on Newegg look at the quantities of reviews as well. Many reviews and still 4 eggs usually means solid product but there is always a certain % that gets a faulty product regardless of the quality.

    Yeah I'm just worried I don't get a mobo with bent pins and get my rma denied or something. It's either loop errors or the motherboard failing after a couple months and hanging up.
  4. Well over 90% of customers get parts that work just out of the box and will not write a review. Even the highest quality components will have 1 and 1 that fails.
