Thank you for your advice. I have seen some biostar boards but i may just avoid them because i dont really know/seen their boards a lot. Can i ask why people have so many problems with ASUS RMA? I have zero problems with RMA; i was approved instantly; send my board in and got my board back in a week with no problems...

The Gigabyte board looks good too; i just have never tried dealing with their RMA. I shall see. I will show this to my friend and we'll take it from there.

Thanks again guys for the suggestions; really appreciate it.

I've owned between 7-8 gigabyte boards and used another 4 for family/friends builds. I know I'm a very small sample size but I've never had a single issue with the gigabyte boards and that why I always go for them.

There have been numerous Asus RMAs with boards returned in original condition, denied for "not covered damage," and or return board having more problems than the one sent in. Delays have been common.
These has been motherboard experiences.
How recent was your Asus RMA? Asus ROG motherboards do appear to get prompt service.

Really? Yeah i think ive seen some threads with people having troubles with Asus denying RMA.

For me; my ethernet port wasnt working on my ASUS P8Z68-V LE motherboard (Not a ROG board). I called ASUS and they said theyd email me with verification about my RMA and my details. I got an email the next day with the address; so i packaged my board up and sent it out the same day. Within a week my board was cleared; it came back replaced with a brand new board; not even repaired. I sold it to my friend and he plays with me on PC and has zero problems with it.

Did i just get lucky? Shipping was fast. Customer service picked up their phone; they had someone that was competent and intelligent to assess the problem. It was quick and short.

Of course, you can spend your money as you see fit, but I will not be buying anymore ASUS motherboards after my own RMA issues.
