  1. Uhm, your link for the ASRock is wrong.

    So, I can't really say based on that.

    But, a year ago I would never have suggested an ASRock board. Now however, I would easily recommend them. They have become a very solid brand, and make excellent products for great prices.
  2. Oh crap! Sorry lol I just fixed it

    Definitely the Extreme 4 over the Gigabyte board.

    I definitely love both brands, but you are going to get a lot more features for your money going ASRock.
  4. I was leaning more towards the ASRock... Thanks dude you just sealed the deal lol

  6. If it were the Extreme6, I'd say ASRock all the way. Since it's the 4 though, I'd call it a toss-up. The 4 uses weaker VRMs than the 6 does. If you are particularly interested in [high] overclocking, either move up to the 6 or get the Gigglebyte.
