EDIT: Mine is actually a G1.Sniper 5 not M5....


If it goes off to RMA onces it comes back its getting sold.

Sorry for your problems. Damn after all that work. I am glad I send mine back and I am happy with R4BE/AC

I have been having issues with my rig from day one and looking for some help. I have had random boot loop issues, BSOD's, boot locks, computer wont restart through windows. My newest issue came after i bought the Razer deathstalker ultimate keyboard.

I had the razer naga and the original deathstalker with no issues. After hooking up the ultimate and not being able to get it to turn on, i returned it to Micro center where they tested it on one of there pc's and it worked just fine. At this point i figured it as most likely my computer and not the keyboard, after 6 hours of me and my brothers messing with the usb settings, i decided to go buy a pci express usb card to rule out hardware. I was able to fully install it with the card and after booting it has tearing in the lcd screen.

I have read that this is due to USB 3 vs USB 2.0.

So no matter what drivers i install from gigabyte or from intel i keep getting unknown usb device when the deathstalker ultimate is plugged in.

I am currently running f7 bios and also re installed windows 7 last night in another attempt to rule out any other bugs.

Has anyone had issues like this or had any experience with this keyboard?

Sorry to hear you are having problem. Have you tried different USB ports or even the front ports. Maybe you are having a conflict. You should removed all other USB devises and see what happens or try an older Bios .

Apparently it's a common problem with that board according to reviews. Don't get me wrong, the Sniper M5 is one of my favorite boards, I just wish the PCI slots were in the format that I needed them to be with my case. In the meantime, my Sniper M5 will be sitting next to me collecting dust unless someone buys it from me.

You shouldn't have got an Asus board. Next minute you'll be stung with the dual booting and RTC bug. That's the situation I'm in right now, and I was planning to jump ship to Gigabyte until I saw all these issues in the Gigabyte z87 threads. Now I'm running out of options and trying to get an MSI board, but they're very hard to get in NZ.

Regardless of how many people have complained about issues with their motherboards in this thread, I have a very hard time believing that they are not the minority. I'm certain that, at least in most cases, it is a problem of faulty hardware or the occasional incompatibility. As we all know, people are far more likely to complain about a faulty component than they are to rave about how great and stable it is. We expect our hardware to work, so we're generally left with a neutral (not positive) impression when it does. When it does not work, we may even get more upset than the average consumer, since as enthusiasts we realize we are likely more capable of troubleshooting our systems.

So to be fair, I will note that I'm going on 6 months with my Sniper M5 and have yet to experience any problems whatsoever. I know I'm not alone in that.

Well im glad that you have good luck with your hardware, ive had my share of RMA's.

And by the way, my issue a month back, with cold boot turning the computer off before i got into windows, was not my fault, nor the boards. I: can finally say my board is 100 percent stable and now giving me zero problems. Wanna know what it really was? Windows 8.1 all along. I finally received a response on tweaktown forums about a guy with multiple Z87 builds that have this identical issue as me. He knew it wasnt his hardware, and we arent sure if having an SSD has anything to do with it, but it is a common factor. The culprit is windows 8's fast boot feature. If you go into power savings and change settings, i never knew there was a fast boot feature that works by sortve putting the system into hibernate, never FULLY shutting the PC off and allowing for a proper cold boot. As soon as i turned that settings off, its been golden. Havent had a single boot interruption since, i cant believe it was O/S all along. I had tried so much with my board and i cant believe the number of CMOS clears and bios updates this guy had to go through biggrin.gif

The only motherboard I had issues with the dimm slots, even after an rma was the GA-Z87MX-D3H. The reason for switching to the Asus from the Sniper M5 is how the PCI slots were positioned. My case only takes 2 video cards sandwiched together.

Don't get me wrong, the Sniper M5 is a great board. I can't send it back because it passed the 30 days so I will surely be keeping it. It will just be collecting dust until another 90 degree motherboard case comes out that allows for 2 video cards be spaced from one another.

Same here always DIMM slots and I used to think it was an ASUS thing....it's not.

I just recently upgraded from Sandy to Haswell, because my Asus P8P67 Pro went POOF and took the 2500K with it. RIP.

And now I'm getting all kinds of goofy problems. I couldn't run four Vengeance 1600MHz CL9 DIMMS without getting random BSODs. The weird thing is that the computer was 3h Prime95 blend stable and the next day I get a BSOD trying to boot up, FFS. Then I got my Corsair H80i and I won't even go into the problems I had with it (this one is not Gigabytes fault). And now there's the fan control of the M5.. Apparently I can't control my 3pin fans with the CPU header, but I sure can with my SYS header, what is up with that? Also I can't use my Ducky Shine II in the BIOS since the BIOS somehow reads all kinds of keypresses randomly from my keyboard. If I try to browse through the different settings they will change their value as I go along...

This was a bit of a rant, but I expected more from a 190€ motherboard. The Asus P8P67 Pro was able to do all these things and that thing cost me only 140€.

That being said, I would be very grateful if someone had some input on these problems smile.gif
