We are talking about custom built. On two different customers I had used a microstar motherboard because of its rating . Both failed during the warranty period. In both cases I replaced with an Asus motherboard. Both timed XP refused to load , regardless of their website saying no problem, and I had to reformat and re-installl. I since quit using Microstar and use Abit, Asus or Soyo motherboards now.
I am assuming that if I had replaced a big name computer manufacturer with an identical board such a problem would not have occurred. For example a dell with a dell, hp with an hp.
I plan to live forever , so far , plan is working.
