What can I expect on a specific brand's offerings on motherboards?

Like without concerning about how different specs there is on the motherboards, what can I expect from the offerings on motherboards?

Like how MSI have freebies and their software for doing a lot of different stuff, like overclocking and RGB customization. What do other brands offer?

Well, you can consider warranty. The Asus TUF series (non gaming) feature a 5 year warranty opposed to a standard 3 year warranty of most their boards. 

 

You can expect all makes to have slightly different features and orientation of some peripherals on the board such as fan header location extra USB ports ect.

 All of the motherboard brands have applications for controlling RGB and all of them suck.

 

Not sure what you're referring to with "freebies." Not sure what you're referring to with overclocking unless you mean Afterburner, which is free and works on hardware from any brand.

wait... mobos come with warranties?  I had never even imagined that.  I always just assumed that when they broke I was SOL.

I'm very generous with the likes I give out on here; you should be, too.

 

I never believed in orthopedic inserts, but then I got a pair.  Now, I stand corrected. 

 

My friend gave me his Epi-pen as he was dying.  It seemed very important to him that I have it.

 

Why do cows wear bells?

Because their horns don't work.

It's interesting you say this, I'm using Gigabyte RGB Fusion to control the on-board RGB and the fans/strips I installed.

 

Haven't had any issues with RGB Fusion despite it's horrible reputation.

 

I also have Razer Synapse, ASUS Armory Crate, and Logitech Gaming Software all running for my various other devices as well....amazingly no conflicts.

I really don't care about RGB.  Some people like them but I am definitely not one of em. And what's the use of RGB when I have a opaque case.

And about the freebies I am talking about on MSI was that there were, at least back when I bought my MSI mobo, offerings that when you bought X from them you could get a game key or something. Maybe even a X months license for a product type of deal.

Thank you, I'll take note of that.

Ok? I mentioned it because you implied RGB software was a unique perk to MSI.

Game key promotions are more often associated with CPU's or GPU's, and they tend to be done by AMD or Nvidia rather than by any one specific brand. I got a key for AssCreed Valhalla when I bought a 3700x, for example (which I gave away because I had no interest in playing it).
