    ASUS has the best features and accessories for the price.

    For great service and best quality board, even the low end ones: Gigabyte.

    So it depends what you are looking more.
    I used to go with ASUS, now Gigabyte and can't even look back. The quality between high end ASUS and low end Gigabyte.. is far in between. Gigabyte wins big time.

    I'd be happy with one that actually worked, two GA-H67N's have been DOA now. I came in here hoping for some suggestions about other ITX boards just in case there's another that would do

    Edit: wrote this before topic title changed, now it seems off topic

    Gigabyte miss out on The UEFI though and generally don't overclock as easily, according to the reviews

    The Gigabyte P67 boards are a dream to overclock. I really don't see the point in UEFI.

    Like any other brands, it depends on the model.
    UEFI is totally useless. It doesn't offer anything more than BIOS at this current stage, maybe later.. but not now.

    I dont get the point of Z68. The major limitation of P67 is the small number of PCIe lanes, yet Z68 doesnt appear to offer any more.

    Well this is what a 2600K and a P67 Sabertooth can do :D
