I have used nothing but Soltek boards for several years now. They are the most reliable boards I've ever used. Prior to Soltek I tried several ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte boards and had issues with all. If you want dependability, go with Soltek. They also have some of the best (if not THE best) tech support around.
I am running the very board you linked to and am completely satisfied with it.
Here's a link to a site where we have a representative from Soltek being an active member of the forum.
Soltek is just one more far east board maker. You either get a good board or a flaky one from them.
The differences from say ASUS or MSI is the features on the board, the warantee/support and how well they bother to test before shipping.
So, check the features, warantee, support web site and decide. I've been buying crap boards the last 2 years because the "good brands" screwed me over just as much, cost more money and go out of date jsut as fast.
Some failure history:
Gigabyte KT333 - undersized header on cmos reset let the jumper fall off when system was moved. Wiped the bios.
MSI - cheap plastic cpu socket clips sheared, hsf fell off, MB & CPU went up in flames.
ECS K266 - sound was flaky to start, finally died. Rest still runs.
ECS NF2- died after 2 days of normal operaiton. No boot.
ECS NF2- MB voltage and temp monitors do not work, but OC's great.
Chaintek KT600 - nothing yet.
SOYO K6 - best MB I ever had, 7 years old and still working.
PCchips - 2 different boards working fine.
Several others have had no problems over 2-4 years.
Bottom line. It's a crap shoot so buy the cheapest and cross your fingers. Except ECS has been consistently disappointing.
As I said above, the package bundle and bios features are the only add ons for the price:
-Improved overclocking features.
-Maybe better test before shipping (I get a lot of ECS with features that don't work)
-Maybe better quality sockets (but gigabyte and MSI sockets were bad to me).
-Possibly no questions asked warantee work (read the details for the MB)
-Better free antivirus and utilities.
MSI seems to be highly liked for their AMD 64 MBs these days. Good overclocking.
ASUS seems to get less cheers on their new stuff lately.
Gigabyte has a nice price/feature trade off.
HEADS UP. The new ATI dual slot video solution (crossfire) requires an ATI chipset MB. Consider that before you buy. Check out the thread under graphics.
I've been on a "buy the cheap stuff kick" for 2 years sicen getting screwed by Gigabyte and MSI but am thinking about swinging back to the premium boards. I've been hamstrung trying to overclock the ECS and Chaintech stuff. It does not allow voltage adjust or individual adjust of RAM/FSB/AGP/etc.
