I have never even heard of the brand.  In my book that is a bad thing
since if I haven't heard of it, it is probably too obscure (at least in
this part of the world) to have particularly good support.  Maybe too
simplistic a view, but it has served my well for many years when buying
computer hardware.

I personalyl only buy Asus boards, and only the higher end models with
via or nvidia chipsets.

Usually when acpi doens't work, it is due to bugs in the bios's acpi
implementation.  Usually this requires a bios upgrade to fix, once the
maker of the system is willing to admit that they made a mistake by only
testing against windows rather than following the acpi spec.
