I wait out C1, only to get a buggy C2 board after it's had what should have been ample time to mature. Should never have had to wait out C1 in the first place.

Gigabyte's Haswell boards appear to be far from polished too. PCI-E issues, SATA drives not being detected, the G1 boards with their "Audiophile" sound solutions are prone to interference etc.

I almost went with Asus over ASRock for Z87. Glad i didnt

I never had that bug on my M6F and they have a quick fix for people with affected boards that takes less than 5 minutes. Not the worst issue I have with ASUS or anyone else to be honest.
post #203 of 335
the quick fix they posted is only temporary, i tried it and the RTC bug was back in 2 days lol.

next z87/z97 board i get will be gigabyte. sticking with rampage though for haswell-e

Like I said, maybe they have already implemented in a fix since I never got this issue. I bought my board from Newegg in mid Oct last year as well.
post #207 of 335
I would be glad to go gigabyte for X99 if they had a good track record with X79. But they definitely don't.

Asus is pretty much the only good option for X79 so they're most likely going to get something like 90% enthusiast sales for X99...

this

i would also happily grab a gigabyte x99 OC Force if they made a good one, but judging by their x79 boards...nope.

guessing we will be seeing a ton of rampage V extremes again, for good reason.

There's not a single fix for the RTC bug that actually fixes the issue permanently. It's somewhat dishonest/misleading of them to still have that sticky thread there with that title.

As for the people who apparently don't have the bug, who knows... But plenty of people do have it. Maybe they all use a certain combo of BIOS settings etc. - either way, it would still be a bug in the board, and one that has persisted for an unacceptably long time.

Asus haven't "implemented a fix". They still have no idea what causes it (probably because they've been extraordinarily lazy about trying to track it down). My Haswell board is quite recent, and it's still bugged. If Asus had made some kind of hardware fix, don't you think they'd have made that known by now?
