VERY close :)

Having tried a large variety of different mainboards, the most reliable I
have found so far is a little known brand called "AZZA"
WA distributors for this board are YNOT Computers, Phone 9310 9850

Also, the last ASUS I put in a server (FTP/Proxy server) had major
problems with it's HDD controllers, so buying a name brand (like in
anything else) does not always guarantee it will never fail.
