Re: just went snb-e
exchanged mb's. first, the cpu socket pins were bent on the asrock. Two, asrock offers a 1 year warranty. I am getting the gigabyte ga-x79a-ud3 mb. More pci-e slots, more sata ports and now gigabyte with x79 offers a five year warranty with registration. still waiting on the ram. and it was $20 more for the gigabyte over the asrock.
