Should I stick with this motherboard or upgrade.

I've been having motherboard problems, and SSD problems as well quite frankly.
What I'm wondering is if I should keep my ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or Purchase a Asus P8z77 - V and send my AsRock back.
I've only got a little while longer to decide, so any help would be amazing.
What's the general consensus on which one is better. I hear mixed opinions, some favoring the AsRock and Some the Asus.

  1. My next purchase is going to be an asrock pro3 z77, i hope so much that i don't experience any such problems :-(
  2. I doubt you would, it seems like a great motherboard, mine just may be defective.
  3. I think another member a.k.a. jaquith gives a good analogy The ASUS is more about prolonged and long-term hardened use and not 1~15 minutes of benchmark testing. Poor but similar example, a Camry can go 135MPH (I think) -- try it for 24 hours straight vs say a Corvette at the same speed; the Camry will be broken down and a greasy smear on the road. ASUS is pretty good about hard-core testing and cooling their e.g. VRM and Chipsets (depending upon the model), all digital voltages, sufficient and smooth phase control .... very distant ... not to mention the doodads (add-ons).I am not sure if you should send it back AsRock motherboards are far from bad but there NOT top notch imo some will disagree then again if you're not happy with it why keep it doesn't make much sense to me.And asking which is better won't fix the problem your just going to see people argue or come to the same answer mixed opinions.Allot favor Asrock because it's cheaper it's a bad idea to ask such a question i hope this thread doesn't get out of hand anyway good luck!P.S. It goes Asus #1 gigabyte # 2 Asrock #3 MSI #4
  4. So you're saying the AsRock won't last as long?
  5. If you're unhappy with the ASRock, just get the ASUS, I don't think you'll regret it.

  7. The thing is, I'm not particularly disappointed with it by any means, it seems like a great board. I'm just trying to figure out which has more to offer and if it's worth paying more for those features. It's stressing me out :|
  8. Well only you can decide that personally i think the best mid high motherboards are GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  9. Thanksfor all your help once again. I can't believe it's so hard for me to decide on a motherboard. I compared the V Pro and it looks like it has no more features to offer next to the Asrock except maybe wifi, which I use Ethernet. I never thought I'd have this much trouble.
  10. No problem it's hard to decide these things i understand good luck!
