I'm stuck between these 2 motherboards but the bad reviews are turning me off from purchasing any of them. Which one do you guys recommend? Based on life of board, components, good customer service. One that is less prone to fail. If you have any other suggestions you can add them.
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
every motherboard has its fair share of bad reviews. there aren't any that get consistently excellent reviews every time. it just doesn't happen. i can find you some horror stories about Gigabyte boards if you like. you have to go with ones that are *generally* good boards that have the features you want in your price range.
I would go with MSI Z77G45 or the ASRock you linked
Those are pretty much your only two options unless you are interested in something more than 2way crossfire/sli. MSI/ASRock are the only motherboards to buy in this price point as Asus can't compete. Of course we could mention gigabyte but <. I wouldn't get bothered by the reviews, both are high and people are dumb/picky/things happen. Out of the 50 reviewers there were 500 people who bought it, and simply didn't review it. So take it with a grain of salt when you have a 50+ 5 egg rating, as it is usually good to go regardless.
