What are some lesser known hardware manufacturers that have good quality items?

For example while looking for a RTX 3070 I came across Gainward, and after asking a few people they said they are using some of their GPUs for years without problem. Any others?

I think Gainward is the Europe branch of Palit, which is one the top AIB for Nvidia cards here in Asia

Biostar's motherboards are pretty good for the price as well but I used to have one and it's voltage readings were all over the place.

Biostar used to be very popular here in Asia. But since kaby lake their product stack is kinda meh... And fell out of favor with ASRock

I used to have Biostar X570GT8 - very solid mobo for the price, but it's voltage readings were all over the place so I returned it. I also had Z270GT8 but I sold it to my friend, he's still rocking it with i7 6700k.

Kingston SATA SSDs have served me well so far, and they tend to cost less than the more known brands. 

Ryzen 1600x @4GHz

Asus GTX 1070 8GB @1900MHz

16 GB HyperX DDR4 @3000MHz

Asus Prime X370 Pro

Samsung 860 EVO 500GB

Noctua NH-U14S

Seasonic M12II 620W

+ four different mechanical drives.

GSkill never get the love they deserve.

One thing I've never liked about GSkil RAM is I find a lot of the aesthetic to be gamer grade. I am sure the product quality is fine but I like the more subdued aesthetic of the Non RGB Corsair Vengeance or Kingston HyperX.

They do make stuff that isn't unicorn vomit, the Ripjaws/Flare & Sniper X/Fortis were non-RGB RAM

Even the original Trident Z were pretty minimalist looking, until they went crazy with the Trident Z RGB/Royal/Neo

I don't know if someone is already aware of "UMIDIGI" who produces smartphones and smart wearables. I recently go to know about them and it seems that they have good products. I haven't purchased anything form this brand yet. But keep searching since I need to buy a smartphone.

Has anyone had a bad experience with Galax? Here in Australia Galax graphics cards are always a bit cheaper than most well known brands and I'm considering purchasing a Galax card but I am a bit apprehensive.
