Was wondering what anyone's thoughts on these 2 motherboards are.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

vs

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros/Cons appreciated.

Evan

They do use the same chipset, so most of the major features would be the same. Based on a comparison between them they do differ in various ports and features. Which one to choose would depend on which of the specific different features you would want or find useful. Scott.

Do you have any objections to ASRock? Such has front panel headers or UEFI interface?

They both support UEFI boot, which will allow you to boot from >2TB drives. I don't have any experience with ASRock, but I don't have any objections to them either. The only boards I specifically avoid are ASUS due to the use of a non-standard Front Panel IO connector. Scott.

ASRock was established as a subsidiary of ASUS originally. I remembered you didn't like ASUS boards so that's why I wanted your take on ASRock. I just checked the motherboard manual and they use a standard Front Panel IO connector.
