    Question Thoughts on asrock?

    Trying to decide weather I should buy a
    ASRock 990FX Extreme3 motherboard or an ASUS M5A99FX-PRO-R2
    The motherboard I am currently using is an ASrock 880GM LE FX (in other words micro ATX piece of shit)
    Since I'm using a micro ATX motherboard I'm not really wanting to judge ASrock just yet :L
    I've heard that ASrock is just pretty much a copy of ASUS only that it comes with 1 year less warranty or something?
    but in this case, I'm buying it from a place that offers 3 years warranty on both mobo's.
    I will also be buying a AMD FX 8120 8 core processor (don't try convince me to change to intel please -.-)
    SoOoOoOoOo whats your opinion?

    Honestly both motherboards are pretty similar in price and performance... I think now it really comes down to which color suits you best?

    I only use Asus motherboards. I'd go with the Asus one.

    ASRock is pretty much Asus.
    Asus owns Pegatron which owns ASRock.

    Funny cause I had a Gigabyte motherboard that least 3-4 years, a GTX 580 I was running since June 2011, a graphics card from March 2011 still working now which I sold to my friend.

    Mkay so all micro atx motherboards are bad now? Get lost with your biased opinions. And unless you are rendering, an i3 2100 will do a better job at gaming than an turddozer from amd.

    For intel cpu's (1155) get an asrock extreme 4, best price/performance
    For amd cpu's (am3+) get any 990fx chipset from asrock
