pc-chips, I've usually stuck with abit but this one had just as many features and was considerably cheaper than the board I was looking at. I know its probably a crappy brand, I've never heard of it but the board itself looked solid. The only thing is I had to move my fans around because it was designed kind of akward...The RAM slot was blocking the cpu from getting air :/ , and the case fan connectors are by the pci slots which is going to be akward when I install a new sound card...but it runs pretty damn fast and hasn't given me any trouble so I ain't complaining.

[edit] oh yeah and the mobo was screwing up and detecting everything wrong because I had my heatsink installed backwards, and my cpu was overheating.

whoopsie :P

PC chips is not a particularly good brand, a lot of people have problems with them.
