Computer store guy trying to talk me out of buying a Rampage - Page 5

post #41 of 43
They are nice boards I've got the asus deluxe and 3930k vrm on water too. I would have gone rog but need a blue mobo to match led fans and blue cabling. If only the Rog series came in another colour besides red/black. I would buy one today but the Asus boards are fantastic. I've owned a few different company's Mobos before but would always go Asus from now on :-)

I personally have been to ASUS's headquarters in Taiwan (my native country) and first hand have seen their customer support teams and PR teams.. While that may be directed to Asian audiences I do not doubt their build quality and customer service... I had serious doubts buying the Z77 Sabertooth when I read all the Newegg reviews stating "Bad capacitors, bent CPU pins, won't boot, and etc" However I bought the board anyways as my first Intel board and it has worked just fine throughout 3 CPUs, many different heatsinks, and tons of cases.. And when my friend went and had to have his 990FXA board returned he went straight to ASUS and basically what happened was he said it was broken, they asked vaguely what happened, and he returned it. They sent him a new one literally a week afterwards and didn't question whether or not the damage was user error.

TL;DR ASUS has stellar products and customer service.

Beta testing really?!?!?! RoG boards have been the most trouble-free and high quality boards I've ever owned, and believe me I have played with nearly every board on the market including server stuff. Sometimes I wish that the said computer stores would actually hire overclocking enthusiasts and have a separate department with enthusiast/OC stuff.
