Need help regarding Motherboard order

Hello mates. I decided to order all the parts of my future gaming pc from Amazon. The thing is i am foreigner and live far away from USA at eastern part of Europe. So shipping to my country will take some time(2 weeks approximately). My Mobo choise was Asus Sabertooth x79 LGA 2011. But! I was terrible shocked when i read costumer reviews about this mobo. For some buyers board arrived DOA. For some of them it stopped working after 2 months. Then i surfed the internet, particulary Amazon and discovered than other Asus motherboard had same probles. Especially Rampage 4 extreme, Rampage Gene and others. Then i decided to order MSI Big bang Xpower 2 but it also had many negative costumer reviews. So right now i am lost. Yes i can buy i7 4770 and 1150 chipset motherboard but really, i dont want to say no to my 4930K. How many percentage of Mobos are dead on arrival? why is it so? What to do? Please help Sorry for bad English.

Just stay with the board you ordered. Every motherboard has problems. Every motherboard company has problems. When someone reviews something on newegg or amazon they usually had an really bad experience or a good one. The order of companies goes like this (by return rate)

  • Gigabyte 1.19%
  • ASUS 1.79%
  • ASRock 2.09%
  • MSI 3.05%

Think of manufacturing a spoon. You can make a million spoons. Some of them are going to be faulty/broken. A spoon is a simple thing. Now think of a motherboard. A mother board has a lot of different parts. If one part doesn't work then people return it. They mobo manufacturers are actually doing a pretty good job considering their circumstances.

Heck No MSi has less failures, my dad has used them since the stone age practically and every other board from any other company he has gotten has failed.

That's you and your dads opinion, whereas the stats above are probably from a study over lots of mobos.

Guess you have bad luck. Every ASRock board i have had has worked great. I had 1 Asus board fail on me. I would never buy an MSI board. To bad of a reputation. Also there is usually better boards for a lesser or equal price.

Those numbers are from last year. Hardware.fr explains MSI had bad rating due to problems with the Z77A-G45 (their most popular board). But now those problems are resolve. This year numbers are way better.

  • Gigabyte 1,43% (contre 1,19%)
  • MSI 1,83% (contre 3,05%)
  • ASUS 1,86% (contre 1,79%)
  • ASRock 2,09% (contre 2,09%)

Keep in mind that people might not leave reviews if they receive a good, working product. On the other hand, almost all people will write a bad review if the product is DOA. I'm fairly certain that a lot of those returns are also caused by static damage
