Is it even worth RMA or should i swap for an ASUS board?

Swap for Asus. I've RMAed through Gigabyte, they updated my BIOS and sent me the same board back (it has a laundry list of issues.) The whole process took about... three weeks. Don't bother with this company.

You swapped to Asus because you didn't like Gigabyte's support hahaha, they have a much better support reputation than Asus. At least you got your own board sent back and not somebody elses RMA with broken bits on it. Good luck having to do an RMA with Asus is all I can say to you, going from the vast amounts of bad stuff I've read from people having to deal with them.

I'm using F7 and I've never had this boot loop problem yet, hopefully never will.

I hope it works. If not, the Asus board I bought is doing very well.

The irony of this is that I bought Gigabyte after having a hassle with Asus. A chipset fan failed and knocked out the mirrored hard drives with two different failures. So much for using a RAID driver in a .0 version from a country you don't know.

Asus sent me a replacement fan, which is a tiny thing that requires removing the MoBo from the case to install. I wrote back and asked if they would re-certify the board since I did not trust them. After no reply I wrote again ... and again ...

It has been years and I am still waiting. So I went with Gigabyte this time and took a week to reply but never read my mail. Is there any large company out there that really cares for its customers? I am beginning to think not.

My new Asus board is working very well. It has these blue heat sinks on the various chips that are reminiscent of the Sydney opera house. The board runs very cool so I guess they are working.

I didn't swap for anything yet, because I'm stuck with this piece of **** that doesn't work. I would have gladly taken somebody else's refurbished board at this point. GIgabyte email support has been absolutely worthless. Their RMA process was slow and I got a board with ALL the problems still present. Here is a fun one I have to deal with constantly: today (for no reason, as usual) when I power on the computer the PC speaker wines with a non-stop tone (this is not even one of the options in the manual, only long beeps followed by short, etc). The only way I can get rid of this tone is by booting into Windows, shutting down, pulling the plug, waiting, and then starting again.

I never had to deal with Asus support because their boards worked, at least for me.

My only "solution" right now, according to Gigabyte, is flushing this 200$ down the toilet and buying another brand, whatever it may be.

Completely OT, but software RAID is another gimmick on all modern motherboards. The concept is fundamentally no good, that's why it failed on you, Google "software vs hardware raid". Save yourself the trouble in the future and just use a large backup drive + CrashPlan for backup (free, unless you want to backup to their online service as well.) I've been using this setup for years and it has saved my bacon more than once. My cousin almost lost all pictures of his baby when his software raid failed on him. It took me a week to recover them.
