What no ASUS striker extreme ?
I've hated 2 or 3 of the motherboards on that list , but man , the striker extreme was THE worst POS ever.
I owned one of those and we tested two of them back in the day. It was bad, but it outlasted all of my EVGA 680i SLI motherboards. The Striker Extreme wouldn't clock RAM for shit which is why I didn't use it longer. Again, it was bad but not as bad as the other boards on my list in my opinion.
Ah capacitor-gate...can you believe a machine designer used these in a whole line of $100k equipment? Yeah, mobo's would die right in the middle of production, only to be swapped with the same board. THEN, when it got to be the third or so, they did a recall. Guess what the recall was? Oohhh, we have this new "upgrade" for ONLY 25k (it's a deal, usually 50k!) that will let you migrate to Win 7, we have to replace the computer though - WINK WINK. Oh, yeah, if you want your 100k machine to run, like ever again, it's mandatory. grumble grumble.
The capacitor issues in the industry were over by the time of the 680i SLI motherboards. I saw some occasional capacitor issues with Apple machines at the time and a few isolated cases here and there, but by in large they were resolved by this point.
I would say the ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe & Premium could give the DFI LanParty a run for it's money. At work we used these in most of our 939 builds and I had a Stack taller than me of bad boards in my office by the time Conroe came around.
While those motherboards weren't the best, they weren't as bad as anything on the list. I owned an A8N-SLI Deluxe and built tons of systems with them for others.
