I've never had any problems with an ASRock board... I currently have the X670 Taichi Carrera and love it. ASRock was the first OEM to release an updated BIOS for this too.

How is memory handling? I sometimes get CTD's when playing YouTube videos
Every two years or so, when I do upgrades, I'll say to myself 'time to build a W/C'... and then I look at build prices, gasp... just lazy out and put in a good AIO

/14 fans total :p...
I think wokeness ought to be this generation's Godwin Law... the first poster crying racism, sexism, ****ism, equity, etc (and anyone dredging up Gamergate) automatically loses the thread and must stand in a corner with a dunce cap on
Do it! We're thinking about doing the same, getting out of Houston and trying to find a nice quiet corner of the hill country that hasn't already been discovered and become unaffordable, so we might consider Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado or even Maine for our retirement. She wants to rescue...
