Any of the big brands are decent to be honest. Some people have problems with every brand, some people have no problems at all...

Best to stick to the big brands like:
Gigabyte (I've used two of their boards and had no problems)
ASUS
Foxconn
ASRock

There are a few other big names but their names escape me!

When I want to get something good like a motherboard I'd Google "Best of..." and read up on them.

When I built my i5 system I wanted durability so I picked out the Gigabyte B75 mobo and the Seagate Constellation hard drive because they are business oriented.

In your case you decide what your interest is in such as gaming, streaming, etc and choose accordingly.

Good luck.

I vote for ASUS Gaming Pro motherboard. However, it also depends on your budget

MSI has a good record of being a decent budget board.
