i really like the Pro version of ASRock, it got great reviews. the Extreme 7 is out of te contest because of the bad reviews on newegg stating DOA and problems with it. but i also like the ASUS.
But I don't really trust newest reviews that much, what do you think? Is the extreme a better motherboard overall?
