This seems to be a very good price for a atx lga1155 motherboard which is able to overclock quite nicely. Only other atx board in this price range is the Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H which seems to have a high failure rate. I am currently using this board on a non k 3770 and is running at 4.1ghz when stressed.

This board is better then the Gigabyte one its really a £75+ board this is reduced to clear as we no longer use lga1155.

Asus make some of the best motherboards. For me it comes down to the software the Asus has the best fan controller I have ever used. Honestly you would be mad to buy the Giggabyte board its a very cheap board. Basically your getting a better quality board for the same money.

I can recommend the software and the bios interface. Build quality is good. I'd happily buy this board again.

Your joking, Asus boards have dropped big time, the fail rate is still climbing, Gigabyte are still the best and AsRock is passing Asus now for being more reliable

Saying that this is a good price

I currently have a gigabyte board and a great feature is that it will let me charge my devices even with the PC off. Apart from the possible reliability differences, how is this better than the ds3h?

It's not a case of one brand being better than another. Asus and Gigabyte both make some terrific motherboards - and also a few lemons, so check each one carefully for your intended use.

One way to assess motherboard quality & reliability is to check newegg where reviewers give 1-5 'eggs' (stars):

Asus Z77-A GA-Z77-DS3H
5 eggs 44% 31%
4 eggs 24% 24%
3 eggs 16% 11%
2 eggs 4% 9%
1 egg 12% 24%

Sample size 25 74

Suggests a lower proportion of respondents had issues with the Asus board and more DOAs & early failures with the GA board.
(But read the reviews in detail to see which would apply to you).
