Was half tempted to get the from them when they were scarce.

ASRock has good value, but legendarily bad service, and my experience with Gigabyte has been subpar both with the hardware and support. Let’s post this every day until the end of time. EVGA has good support but is expensive and doesn’t offer the same features or selection as others.

No risk no fun. Their motherboards lack all them bells and whistles but I heard they are good quality. Always always always get a motherboard with two BIOS options on main board or get one that has a very vetted process by which you can recover a corrupted one.
