No, each brand have their good and bad units. You'll definitely need to do some research first to find the best ones icon_idea.gif

Aiyo mobo always the hardest part to choose for me, plus now the upcoming x570 also price increase already. It's like they don't want me to upgrade from my current i5 3470.

Last time they told me you can't rma straight to distributor, now can already? Which brand has best rma?

When this happened? blink.gif Any link?

Along with MSI (which is pretty strange considering back then they were known as 'Missing Something Inside'), both manufacturers actually know how to do motherboards without poor VRM cooling icon_idea.gif

I have been using a asrock z97e itx for many many years with a few different cpus. So far no complaints. But for the new ryzen IMO better get a top tier board from the establish partners like Asus msi or gigabyte. Just better wait for some reviews before making a purchase

I've been using AsRock Extreme boards for so many years since sandy bridge and ivy bridge. Have never facing single issue on that board. Just this board of course is not an Asus maximus board. It is quite limited to do overclocking for your CPU and RAM. Since I'm not an enthusiastic, just do some normal overclocking and set your performance RAM to XMP profiles is good enough to run the system smoothly.

My AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 was sold after using for 6 years. Now, I'm still using an AsRock Z77 Extreme4. This board was bought from taobao China as second hand and is still working in well condition with my i7-3770k and was put to living room now. For watching mypadtv, and stream online video for watching movies and dramas.

I have the same setup running for 2 years+ now with bios updated. No OC just running on stock. Casual gamer. No problem whatsoever. In fact, never had any problems with any of my rigs. This kinda thing just depends on luck I guess.

ASRock motherboard has the highest number of RMA because their motherboard is always the cheapest compared to other brands so their sales quantity is higher

The higher the number of sales, the higher the number of RMA being processed

PS - There is only 2 brands that you should consider, either ASUS or ASRock because their UEFI is the most mature compared to the other brands

Gigabyte RMA support in Malaysia is crap, hantar motherboard claim warranty twice, the only thing they did was downgrade the BIOS, came back and tested the motherboard still have the same issue, the 3rd time I went back to their RMA center, I had to bring the whole PC to prove to them the motherboard is faulty, not caused by my parts, not caused by corrupted BIOS

Basically this. Their B450 motherboards for Ryzen are the most affordable. You have to remember many of the 1st time PC builders are probably teenagers trying to save money. Asrock’s mobos are perfect for them. Higher chances of them fucking up their components. First time user errors are higher.


Op you seem have a doubt for most brands out there lol

1. this is lyn, we use TS not OP mad.gif

2. I've actually only used Foxconn, MSI, and Intel branded motherboards.....
it's just that my experience with these boards have been ok, but with minor bugs everytime.

With other brands, I've always read bad news.....from customer feedback, hence the reason for this tered.

I've using Asus, AsRock and MSI. My first really bad experience was my first board is Asus P67 Sabertooth. CPU keep burnt and send to RMA again and again. I was doubted for the PSU problem. So in the end, I was totally given up that PSU and bought a new PSU and new motherboard in the same time. I was replaced to AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 after Asus P67 Sabertooth. This motherboard was bought from Idealtech in lelong.com.my. I've been using it since 2011, later that in 2012. I was upgraded to a MSI Z77 MPower, so I do not sell my AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 but take it out to build into another casing. Then bring it to my office to make it run 24/7. The CPU create much heat in office especially during off days, public holidays. Nobody in office, so air-conds were off. The computer keep running 24/7, I just use teamviewer or splashtop to control the PC to download and torrent.

After that, I was resigned from that company. So I want to take back that PC back to home. I was moved to another city, so my computer with MSI Z77 MPower that one was left in my hometown. The one computer with AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen4 bring together with me in the new city. So I live in a new house in the new city. This motherboard was serving me until 2016, then I visit to taobao to buy second hand used motherboard - AsRock Z77 Extreme4. Actually I was looking for MSI Z77 gaming series motherboard but most of the sellers there are replied me with out of stock.

So later that, my AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 was put to living room and plug to a large TV screen. I was bought another new casing again to build that AsRock Z77 Extreme4. Every day I wake up in the morning, I just start the two PCs. Keep them running for morning until night I back home after works. My current house don't have astro, so I went to shopee to buy Mypadtv 180 days to watch astro in my PC. That's why my AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 was put to living room. Until March of 2019, I was decided to upgrade my PC to Core i5-9600K. So I was bought MSI Z390 MPG Gaming Plus. The one AsRock Z77 Extreme4 was take out from casing to put in that new Z390 motherboard. So the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 was replaced/upgrade from AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 for my living room. I was sold the AsRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 in the end. This board was served me for 7 years actually.

Sorry for that long story. I talk so much but just need to prove that AsRock is a good motherboard. It's not as what you described as a "bad" motherboard. Actually my favourite motherboard is MSI. That's why my hometown was using MSI Z77 MPower. All of graphics card are MSI brands. Also my current new motherboard is MSI.

My ASROCK Q1900B-ITX served me well running 24/7 for 3 years as PLEX server/HTPC.
