  4. First of all , he is not getting Z87 mobo (2 and 4 ), neither AMD mobo(5) . The first picture proves nothing . And picture 3 doesnt concern Asus more than any other manufacturer .

    Where is MSI 970-G43 mobo ? It will burn if you put on it FX 8350 . What about the speed - nothing ?
  5. The Gigabyte gaming 7 seems a good too, what do you think?

    you can see the thread on here
    ==========================================
    - Gigabyte 2.51% (against 2.02%)
    - MSI 2.65% (against 2.60%)
    - ASUS 2.86% (against 2.31%)
    - ASRock 2.99% (against 2.27%)

    As in the previous period there was an increase in the return rate for defeated motherboards. As builders can see their rates increase, even if it's mild manner MSI. This allows him to move from 4th to 2nd place, exchanged positions with ASRock, Gigabyte remaining head. Different manufacturers are generally quite similar.
    Among the models sold more than 100 units (those sold less than 200 units are to return in italics), the five models which has returned most are:
    - 8.80% ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
    - 8.05% ASRock AD2550B-ITX
    - 7.93% + ASRock Extreme4 FM2A88M
    - ASRock 970 Extreme3 7.25% R2.0
    - 7.20% ASUS Maximus Extreme VI
    - 5.95% 970 ASRock Pro3 R2.0
    - 5.93% MSI Z87I
    - 5.56% Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
    - ASRock 990FX Extreme3 5.26%
    - 5.06% ASUS Maximus Formula VI
    - 5.05% ASRock FM2A55M-VG3

    The Rampage IV Extreme was already in pole position there 6 months. Indeed, given its positioning is probably subject to more stress on the part of users, however, the rate is very high. Other cards do not have that excuse. Note the presence of three ASRock AM3 + models with power stages to 4 stages a little lighter.
    Ranked by chipset, the return rate for failure is
    - 3.41% Z87
    - 3.17% H87
    - 2.83% B85
    - 1.71% H81
    - 3.55% 990
    - 3.80% 970
    - 2.55% A88X / A85X
    - 2.52% A78 / A75
    - 2.92% A58 / A55

    Intel the largest failure rate is logically the chipset the more upscale, which allows overclocking. The rates obtained by the manufacturer on Z87:
    - Gigabyte 2.18%
    - MSI 3.22%
    - ASUS 3.67%
    - ASRock 4.25%

    Gigabyte is the only one to get a smaller Z87 on its overall rate of return rate. In detail these are the rate of return for the Z87 motherboards (more than 100 sales, italic between 100 and 200 sales)
    - 7.20% ASUS Maximus Extreme VI
    - 5.93% MSI Z87I
    - 5.06% ASUS Maximus Formula VI
    - 4.76% Z87I ASUS-PRO
    - ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 4.55% Killer
    - 4.42% ASUS Maximus Gene VI
    - 4.26% ASUS Z87-PRO
    - ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87 4.13%
    - 3.65% MSI Z87-G45 GAMING
    - 3.48% MSI Z87-G43 GAMING
    - 3.37% ASUS Z87-A
    - 3.29% ASUS Z87-K
    - 2.17% ASUS Z87-PLUS
    - 1.92% MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING
    - 1.85% MSI Z87-G43
    - 1.67% MSI Z87 G41 PC-Mate
    - 1.39% Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H
    - 1.14% GRYPHON ASUS Z87
    - ASRock Z87 PRO3 0.93%

    And here it is for AM3 + motherboards based on AMD 990FX chipset, 990X and 970.
    - ASRock 970 Extreme3 7.25% R2.0
    - 5.95% 970 ASRock Pro3 R2.0
    - 5.56% Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
    - ASRock 990FX Extreme3 5.26%
    - 3.31% ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z
    - ASRock 970 Extreme4 3.60%
    - ASUS M5A97 EVO 2.14% R2.0
    - 1.82% Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P
    - ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX 1.71% R2.0

    =================
    well, as we can see, gigabyte still sit on the first place.
    and for those days, we see lots of problem, question with Asus/Asrock motherboard,
    either with their z97 and x99 mbs.
    so it's not surprise they get 3rd and 4th place with the RMA Rate.
    and believe or not, I think msi did well on the z97 and x99 platform
    as we know, msi z77 get some problems, ppl always talk about the msi QC problem
    but when z97 and x99 launched, it got big improvement with their QC and also the specs.

    anyways, just for share

    Gigabyte gaming 7 is grade,but if you want to overclocking and no more budget,I would go msi z97 gaming 5,I always use MSI mobo to overclock and SLI,that always give me a grade performance and score.
  8. That proved nothing ! 2.5 2.6 2.7 is the same thing . More features more issues . i never stated that Asus is always the best . Sorry , but we are speaking about Intel and Z97 mobos As i said before the speed test lacks .

    The new RMA rate can show a manufacturers QC,so I just would prefer a good manufacturers like gigabyte and msi.Have a good quality control than asus,asrock now.
