  1. I don't like Asrock's quality. They are flaky.

    Consider this Gigabyte board instead. Better quality engineering and all the bells and whistles for the same price:

    yea i just saw a poll about better Mobo and Gigabyte is on the lead...

    i just lost respect to Gigabyte due to their low quality OC GPUs...

  3. Yes they will both fit (1155 Socket)

    I am getting ASRock E3 G3 Mobo w/ 2500k (fyi)
