Asrock B550 Phantom Gaming 4/ac is my board and its rock solid.I plan to make new pc based on ryzen computer. local shop is insisting for msi or asrock boards. Are anyone using asrock boards, are they good?. I see many queries raised on asrock forums that users facing issues with asrok boards. So in dilema. Help me please.
It comes to the quality of VRMs and Mosfets used.There have been lots of complaints regarding its after sales in recent times. So IMO, no brand is at the top, decide based on the mobo model, performance & price from Asus, MSI, Gigabyte & AsRock
Yes really. As per an industry insider in Nehru Place giga has the least failure %. I have used Giga almost always no issues for years not one BSOD or unexplained reboot. Got one AsRock and BSODs/random reboots is common from day 1. AsRock and other cheaper brands do pack a lot of features for what they charge for and maybe that is why they are popular these days. To each his own thoughLike really!!!
My preference goes like this
Now in the above, not all boards are equally good or bad. Low end asus board compete with asrock etc.

Hmm I damaged mobo pins of my Giga G31 years ago and the board was out of warrantee. I gave it for repair in auth Giga sc in Nehru Place and they gave me a replacement (used working mobo) in 4/5 days not asking for any money. Maybe things are different today. My current AsRock is crap. Multiple BSODs reboots are common from day ! and it is a mining board lmao!There have been lots of complaints regarding its after sales in recent times.

i too have good experience of gigabyte motherboards in the past till some 11 years back. also i have used an ancient one 81915 with Pentium 4 (first gen) from 2008 to 2020 continuously for more than 5 hours everyday without any problem in the board. this same board was used in multiple computers in my last office.
Talking about ancient I still have my first pc. Mercury 845GL motherboard with a Pentium 4 processor ( 478 pin ), 40GB Seagate HDD and 2x 512 MB Zion DDR ram It's not in assembled condition but once or twice I use it just the sake for running it.
Anyway, coming back to the topic I think Asrock and Asus are the best next comes Gigabyte and then MSI.
