            Hated GB for the past couple of generations for various reasons
            BIOS updates for PCI-Express GPU issues
            Horrendous bios on my Z77
            Lack of on-board video on Z68 models (one of the key features of Z68)
            They've a lot of ground to make up in my eyes.

            ASUS seem expensive for the features.

            ASRock and MSI seem the best value for money and that's where my money would go, probably go with MSI due to good past experiences.

                Asus or MSI here.

                Never owned an ASrock board but I've had a few GB boards, all of which have had issues in some form (power cycling, dying unexpectidly, bad clockers, sata issues - just to name a few)

                  I have had 2 MSI boards die on me on the 1155 platform (not OC'ed them hard either)

                  Only ones that have been solid for me is ASUS, but that Z87 OC Formula looks a beast!

                    Lol I think I will give Gigabyte a miss, I have had a few and have all been fine, what do you guys do to kill them? I have to say I bought a cheap Asus board at xmas and I do like it, I have yet to try an Asrock board even thought I now have one that I got of Joker which is sorted with the boot issue I had (cheers mate) but can't be arsed at the moment to swap it out, it is a good looking board though.

                      Dislike the Sabertooth's BIOS. Dislike all UEFI BIOS. Like the look of the UD4H. Answer = Gigabyte.

                        Gigabyte have always been great for me, also have an AsRock, ASUS I feel can be overpriced sometimes. MSI were ok, just a bit boring I felt (purely talking motherboard here, I love their GPUs).

                              None. Still not a big enough cpu performance increase to justify the spend. Could'nt care less about improved onboard gpu as it's something i would never use.
