I'll go with the asus, they make top end boards and are overclocker friendly for you crazy cooks who go and add watercooling to make your processor that little bit faster.

the poll really should say best brand of motherboard, even Asus comes up with a stinker now and then, but it seems to have the most stable rep. many other brands seem to have rising and falling stock, gigabyte, falling and say, DFI rising.

I used to use and recommend soltek, however they no longer mfg mb for sale in the US. I think they may still sell boards in China.

My current favorite is an nforce4 ultra by epox. I have built 5 systems with this board and all have performed flawlessly.

For an intel build, nothing beats the stability of an intel board. If you want to oc the intel, then I would go asus.

heard something about Soltek getting merged with DFI, could be a rumor

I went with ASUS, however I really like SOYO, and my new Chaintech...
I actually am thinking of going with Chaintech for all future builds, haven't decided yet.

Last I heard they were not shipping boards to the US. There have been no updates on their web site since early July :( :(

It is too bad I really liked their boards; good value and very stable.

Over the years I have used a LOT of different boards. The oldest one I have still in service is a Tyan Tahoe dual P-II which has been on 24/7/365 for almost 8 years and has performed flawlessly, even though I have three times lost modems durin storms on that machine.

When I built it that machine was bleeding edge.

The only manufacturer on my "avoid" list is gigabyte. Why? Look over there in the corner. See that stack of boards? Gigabyte, all of 'em. All dead. I prefer to have a board that lasts.
