ASRock for me. I like their simple non-gamery UI in UEFI and the price/performance is great.

Asus if you got budget and in need of good BIOS.

MSI/Asrock if value for money.

No gigabyte unless it have a certain something I want from them (motherboard layout, io connection offering, or whatever the purpose of the rig that gigabyte can offer while others don't.)

Actually, I once flogged laptops and there was a constant stream of refurbished Asus models which we could let go cheaply. We never had so many refurbished units from the other brands so I wondered what was going on.

Owned multiple asus products over the years

01 x 970 strix, 01x 290 directcu, 01 x 1060 dual, 2 x Z87 tuf and a zenbook ux305...and none of them bought locally (protest with my wallet!).

Never had any problems though..other than the 290 with the infamous heatpipe issue, which didnt really affected me as i installed a waterblock.

Asrock also recently getting more and more solid. Esp when building ryzen builds. The value proposition by asrock is like up there, if not the best. Help built 3 rigs for friends on separate occasion all using Asrock b250m pro4
