As far as a specific favourite, I'd have to say either my ASRock I used for my old 939 or my Gigabyte UD3LR for my Q6600. The ASRock is still working and reliably so. While it's overclocking options were very basic, it was an innovative board based solely on the fact that they were selling adapters to allow your board to support the AM2 chips - It was a nice way to allow consumers a direct path to upgrading without having to replace their entire motherboard.
I have built many computers, mainly for work. The only home PC i've built uses (yes, still uses) an ASRock 939 Dual Sata2. Still in use every day, never uprgraded to AM2 though. At the month end will be upgrading the PC to Windows 8 and hopefully add another gig of memory - running 1GB at the minute.
I have not had any problems with the motherboard even though at the time people online were commenting on it being a cheap brand.
