That's unfortunate for you. Out of the hundreds of ASUS products we have sold, I have not had any worse experience with them than any other company.
I have sent a monitor of mine to them for a replacement, and it was hassle-free. None of my customers have ever complained to me.
It's also unfortunate that you got a bum motherboard, but I can say we have never had any particular models of ASUS products come back in droves, and never a had a large batch of customers all complaining about any particular ASUS product.
I have owned lots of routers that have needed to be rebooted because they are not working properly, and In fact that's one of the number one fixes that get people back up and running when they call us complaining their network isn't working. Brand is pretty much irrelevant.
I can only go by our sales and returns results, and my own experience with ASUS in my own computer systems as well as my friends. ASUS has never been an issue in all the time I have been in the computer business.

I have a fellow clan member who is having big time issues with Asus. He has sent his MB back to them twice....and still no luck in resolving the problem. He has been without his main rig for well over a month or better.

I've never bought Asus....but I haven't heard that many bad things either. Some of the other clan members have Asus 1080's and they are flawless. Sometimes, you just get a lemon....not much you can do.

I had a issue with my MSI MB, but it turned out that it was actually the CPU that was the cause. MSI did a great job of getting me another board out though. Overall it was like a week from NC to CA and back..including a holiday.

To be fair to ASUS, my reference card did about 7,200,000 folding points and 300 hours of gaming in the 2 months before the VRM started to fail. Most of that was overclocked to 1400mhz. Some of the folding was at 1450mhz. Maybe the VRM failure was my fault and not the motherboard, powersupply or anything else.

My XFS card; maybe 4 hours of gaming and 8 hours of folding before the VRMs started to fail. Maybe the XFS card was just bad from the getgo. My ASUS portable had cooling issues but it lasted more than five years. The motherboard dying from a bad BIOS flash wasn't really ASUS's fault. Not having a recovery options on that board probably was... EDIT: The ASUS motherboard was over eight years ago.

I'm starting to wish I'd purchased an EVGA motherboard there were several reviews of the G1 Gaming z97 Gigabyte Ultra Durable that had bad audio or a bad NIC on New EGG. EVGA and SAPHIRE have the best support in my experience. I'm not going to sleep well until all my parts get here.

Depends on the XFX card, R2xx series was horrid for XFX in this regard. ASUS has issues with that series too, but not such that would cause damage.

All the manufacturers have their hits and misses. Just research the products before you buy and don't worry about it once you have it unless something goes wrong

Are there any issues using an MSI Gaming X without the MSi software?
Whenever I install their software, it crashes seemingly at random. Running with only the AMD Crimson driver package installed, all I suffer is the Wattman crashing periodically.

Which version of the driver do you have? WattMan shouldn't be crashing anymore. If it is up to date, and both it and the MSI software crash, there could be something wrong with the card.

I've decided to sell my two 480s... and no, I don't run CrossFire, I ran them in two separate PCs.

I loved having the 480s, but I don't wanna get hit by depreciation when Vega 10 and Pascal Refresh hit. I got hit bad when Pascal and Polaris 10 hit and I had a Nano.

The intent is to buy two Vega 10 graphics cards when I can, but I dunno when they'll launch, so I'm buying an audio setup in the meantime.

The Gaming App is up to date however I'm not sure about driver. I downloaded the Crimson ReLive package on release, 510mb or there abouts. It should have auto updated if a new version has been released.
Truth be told, I'm extremely dissapointed with the MSI 480 Gaming X. First one had to be returned straight away and the replacement card also has issues.

Wattman still crashes.

I installed the newest driver when I put the 470 in my son's rig. Used Wattman twice....crashed once. Yes, Wattman, not the actual driver. All I did was set the power limit to +25 and raised the core from 1270 to 1300. I know that 1300 is very safe for that card. I have benched it with stock voltage before and hit 1330+/-. I have better luck with AB.

While it may work for some...I would rather use something other than Wattman. I had issues on my rig when I ran benchmarks with ALL of the driver sets using it as well.

Truth be told, I'm extremely dissapointed with the MSI 480 Gaming X. First one had to be returned straight away and the replacement card also has issues.

I wouldn't use the Gaming App ever....I TRIED to use it with my MSI GTX970.....and was so disappointed. AFAIK, it's nothing but bloatware.
