Wasn't the best ever made, but I'm biased to the one who helped me dive into the computer realm, DFI Lanparty Ultra D 939. Still using it right now to write this up. Its been my workhorse, unfortunately it seems its about to bite the dust. Will always be remembered...

Of all time? Probably the AMI Enterprise III Series 68 motherboard, for Intel 80486 (and Pentium OverDrive) CPUs. This was a server-grade motherboard that could take 256MB. Not a lot by today's standards, but when it came out, anything about 8MB was a lot of RAM.

Gah, I was so jealous of those DFI LanParty boards! Couldn't afford one at the time. Loved the colors and the specs.

My Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe.

Looked a beast when paired with my Asus Extreme N6600GT Silencer. It's still running today for my uncle!! Man I miss it.

ASUS, enough said...

I've had nothing but trouble with ASUS boards in the past, you might need to say more

I think mine was the Asus Rampage Formula which was running a Q6600. I oath, best board I have ever owned, and that sound card!!!! I miss that beast. I am also starting to like my current board, GA-Z77x-UD3H. Am having no issues with it. But Asus and the ROG, epic stuff. I need another one....

I loved my DFI NFII Ultra Infinity... It had character - you could stay up all night to find the perfect settings and stable clock rates and the final working settings would make no sense to you whatsoever.

I used ASUS boards since ~2003, I never had an issue. I had to RMA one, but that was because of the RAM slots.

I don't really have one to tell you the truth. I've had the best experience with Asus and Asrock. They're basicly the same thing: Asrock is lower end Asus. I've also owned an Abit NV7-S and used it up until recently. For a 12 year old board, it was way ahead of it's time and ran XP/Xubuntu perfectly.

Current one - Asus Sabertooth X79 - built like a tank, was Windows 8 ready well before Windows 8 was released, great thermal management, all on-board features work great in Linux, good uefi implementation, great BIOS's and they are still being released frequently and many ways to upgrade BIOS outside of an OS, has held my overclock flawlessly.

I get that it an "enthusiast" board and platform and it shows, never used a mobo as solid as this before.

ASUS BE6 with a Celeron oc to 450. It was pretty hot at the time. I also still have a DFI Lanparty 939 board with an Opteron.

Thats it!

ABIT BX6 board managed to get a cherry picked Celeron 300A to 600Mhz, I love it when PCs were niche and not every moron had one.

Oops -- I forgot that was an ABIT, not an ASUS. Mine was a BX6, too. It is now sitting in its original box over in the corner! My friend had the ABIT BE6, which wasn't as good as the BX6.

BTW, those of you still using DFI Lanparty Ultra D: Which BIOS are you running?
