I just got a Shuttle AK35GT2R, and am about to return it. On paper it is an awesome board for the price. I am however, very dissapointed.. Quality seems to be lacking. Voltages are unstable and very very low, hurting the oc potential. Maybe I just got a dud, but I tend to think they have a lower quality control standard than anyone else. (just my opinion)

nice one

Was originally leaning towards ABIT, then Shuttle casted some doubt. Asus a distant third
Spent the last few hours trawling the net looking for reviews,
with Abit coming out on top again with me.
Thanks for your comment though, it has help me make up my mind

Let it begin

Here's my bit: ABIT
I have head good luck both with stability and customer service although that seems to have not always been the case.
