Asus and the crap they sell us

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I used to be a big Asus fan and then switched over to ASrock.
So with the launch of Ivy E I decided I am gonna grab Asus Rampage IV Gene boards and build 2 Monster M-Atx machines.
Unfortunately I got rid of my 3930K so I only had a 4820K and a 4960X to update the bios.

As you guys know you can't use Ivy E chips to update the bios. Anyway I followed Asus's new technique to update the bios without the cpu in and it didn't work. So decided to take it to my local Asus offices. The tech there then proceeded to update both boards, boards worked perfect with his 3820, so after updating the bios, he popped in the 4960X, board won't boot, no lights, no nothing. So took the chip out and popped the 3820 back in and the board was still dead, so he tried with the 2nd board and the exact same thing happened. He then took one from their own stock and the same thing happened. So 3 dead boards...

So pissed right now...Now we have to wait for a response from Asus HQ...mad.gif

Ah good ol' Asus. The rebranding industry is heavy, nobody makes their own X product anymore. Just outsource and have someone else do the work for you. I've had good luck with all the Asus boards I've owned but anything else Asus forget about it. No longer is there any quality behind the names but only clever marketing and a half working product. I missed the computer e-commerce age redface.gif no more competition, even Intel is leaving the motherboard market when they used to make good boards. Every few years more and more players drop out of the market. Soon enough we'll be only handed a handful of motherboard manufacturers to choose from and it will be a total downer if this is what we will be faced with for hardware. BTW Asus tech support is terrible, my brother sent his $150 router back 3 times and it's still not fixed with internet dropping out randomly and slow speeds. We are still using my 7 year old router that has been running consistently 24/7. None of the techs can explain what is wrong with it or even provide a proper work log of what got worked on. It currently sits as a paperweight on his desk. That's just a fair warning of what you will be dealing with using Asus tech support. At least you got an Asus office next to you. The rest of us get the non-existent tech support.

Well locally the Asus guys are fairly decent, I deal with them a lot but what was shocking to me was the failure of 3 new boards.
Not cheap boards either, eh but such is life, was so looking forward to starting the builds mad.gif

They haven't for some time as far as I know.
As far ASRock boards go, I absolutely adore the Z77 OC Formula, still have one running here wink.gif
Their Z87 line up on the other hand leaves much to be desired. Which is why I decided to just skip Z87 and go back to 2011.

Well some good news, Asus just got off the phone with my partner and they have sorted out the issue.
I guess it helps when you have a local Asus office right around the corner. Will update if anything goes wrong though.
