These boards are hit and miss. It seems many (myself included) have stability and compatibility problems because of poor quality control. If you are willing to go through the trouble of RMAing to get a good one, than go for it. Personally, this is likely my last asus board.

This doesn't make me feel very good about my purchase. Although I love asus and will continue to use them. There does seem to be a more than normal amount of unhappy users with this board. I am waiting on a response from Asus for cross shipping. But my board was an open box so I knew this was likely.

I don't want to give my hard earned money for a maybe thing and take chances. If I'm paying well then I want no risk If otherwise I go for cheap board and will not ask any question wink.gif

Its all hit and miss man. Asus makes great boards. Especially with Z77 no one can really tell you anything as nobody has them yet. You don't know if there may be some new issue we don't know about. So you will be one of the first testers wink.gif

NIC came back up again and hasn't disappeared since. I have no idea why it worked but it did. Give it a shot and see if it works for you too.

And that's the problem with following troubleshooting threads too much. You get a false impression that it's a common problem, when in fact it's just a few people -- many of which get solved with basic trouble shooting, such as the person above who just reset their cmos. You may well be one of the unlucky ones, but it's rare.

The boards are great, and specifically targetted at overclockers. If that's what you want, then go for it man. Hard to beat them.

Yah I did try that a couple times. The thing is when I took out my gpu's and tried the onboard video that wouldn't work either. Finally I just gave up. Still waiting on asus but oh well I have a temp board so I am up and running.

Mhhhmm that's very nice smile.gif I'm not going to disable it If I buy it. I just wait for some good review about the board and to see some OC results and load temps(must be lower then competition if Asus plan to sell boards for premium price wink.gif ) and I'll go for maximus V then. Hope there's nothing better for that money or even less(I wouldn't be surprised If that's the case smile.gif ).

Well I do have a problem, with no solution that has cost me many many hours of troubleshooting time. Also, nobody at the manufacturer has an answer to resolve the problem. They say there is a problem with my "configuration" WHAT A JOKE! Am i supposed to use the board without any other hardware? Maybe ASUS doesn't feel they should meet the standards of other manufacturers? Now i must invest several more hours to remove and reinstall a replacement product.

The fact is that many users including myself believed for the extremely high price we were buying a top quality, fully tested product. Instead i get something half baked and impossible to troubleshoot and certainly nobody is going to reimburse for all that time lost. 99% of people want to build a rig and start tweaking. Not spend 2 months trying to solve stability problems at stock default clocks. There is no excuse for the lack of quality.

Pathetic!

You haven't even RMAd the board yet so they can test it on their own equipment.

You've confirmed RAM to fail memtest. You blame the board.

You assume it's the board and not another piece of hardware that has glitched, simply because that hardware worked in a previous system. The mistake obviously being that if it works once it will work forever.

And even if there is a component that works in another setup and not your new board, you're mistakenly assuming the incompatibility issue is with the board, and not the other component.

And even if it is the board. It's a piece of complex miniaturised hardware that gets shipped around the world in little boxes. Some times hardware has an issue that is beyond Q&A. That's why they have RMAs and warranties.

Troubleshooting an issue is always frustrating. That's the responsibility we pick up by building our own systems, instead of saying "hey Dell, take my machine for two weeks and send it back working". But it still requires objectivity and patience.

Ended up getting the NH-C14 and it just fits onto the mobo. If anyone is ever wondering I did not have to move my ram and was still able to use the first slot thumb.gif
