Hmm, I just felt like starting a little thread where we could mention those companies who have been giving us consistent, reliable products. Unlike the *cough* new mobos with cut traces *cough* chipsets that STILL have no locked pci *cough* mobos that make you go through 3 revisions before its right... Ok, so here's what I think would be safe bets for any overclockers rig:
PC Power and Cooling - I haven't even owned one but next ps I purchase for a high end rig will be from them. They are built like tanks, give us all the sheer power we need, and have customer service that is friendly and will spend all the time with you that you need. And the best warranty of any ps manufacturer.
AMD & Intel - well at least you can't go wrong with your cpu choice. Despite the fact that intel isn't moving forward as fast as I think they could/should and amd was late out the door w/ the a64, there's no denying that now is a good time to be an overclocker as far as cpu's are concerned. 100% overclocks on axp 1700's, great bang for the buck bartons, and 2.4c's that will overclock higher than anything on the market. For a minute I can almost forget about amd locking multipliers or Intel dropping the ball with prescott. Almost.
Winbond - BH-5!!! Need I say more. Just think if everyone else were as consistent at producing a quality part. As soon as you see that sweet lable on the ram chip, you can almost rest assured that it won't be the bottleneck in your system. Even before this though they still produced quality chips.
Seagate - As a tech at a community college, I replace alot of hard drives and they seem to almost always be WD's. I rarely run across a seagate (granted we don't have nearly as many) but the ones I have at home run great. I love my 15k.3, fast, very cool running, and even quieter than some "other" brand's 7200 rpm drives. Seagate is always leading the field in scsi and their ide drives just seem solid. Thumbs up from me.
Little River Waterblocks - Now these are waterblocks done right! Cathar single handedly reformed the waterblock scene and now has his newest block that not even swiftech or danger den can touch. No leaks, no unflast bases, just a lot of hand-lapped luvin! If you can get your hands on one you won't regret it!
I'll explain why I there are some that I was tempted to put up but didn't. I have heard great things about asus boards but since I don't own any I'll leave others to comment here. However, they would rank high on my list of mobo manufacturers I would buy from in the future considering all the issues coming from others lately. ATI has been hot lately no doubt. But I think they need to keep it up a little bit longer before I would go out of my way to commend them. There are still issues with some of their stuff but at least they've picked up the ball where nvidia dropped it. That's all I can think of at the moment. Feel free to add your own.
