I'm probably just going to return it and get a different board. Even if I do have multiple BIOS chips to play with, what does that mater if Win updates could brick them? When I was looking at boards, it came down to the EVGA board and the Asus Maximus V Formula - the EVGA board won because I've never had a bad experience with an EVGA product. Until now.
What can everyone tell me about the MVF? Is it good? Any annoying little features? Unexpected/unadvertised bonuses? Problems? Asus Customer support as bad as I heard? Pretty much anything. I don't do much in the way of OCing, it's a school computer, I'm looking for good, solid performance out of the box ; for CPU-intensive CAD Engineering programs, and some gaming (BF3 being the most intense one - and I play on low settings just keep frame rates high and the lag low - the rest are either much older games, Valve games or games from Indie studios).

You did know that this is OFFICIAL ROG Maximus V (Gene, Formula, Extreme) Owners Club and not for EVGA boards right? Sorry to hear about your bad board.

Read his post more and you will see he's asking about the MVF so technically he posted in the right thread.

Yeah - I have a habit of giving a back story. I mean, it is a brand new board, why would I upgrade (normally)?

Yeah - it was a solid build, but the BIOS was always kinda funky.

So, is there anything about the MVF that wasn't mentioned in all the reviews?

I almost went with the evga ftw, then went MVF instead. It's good and stable so far but I'm not even scatching the surface yet.

You can't go wrong with the Maximus V Line. They are solid and great boards. I haven't heard of a single complaint other than receiving a defective board but RMA is quick and painless.

People that don't overclock or game use them. It's a decent stock heatsink. But it's funny seeing a stock heatsink on a MVF lol
