Words cannot describe my frustration!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So last night I thought I play a little GRID with my Logitech Dual Action. I grabbed it out of the livingroom and when I plug it into the front panel I see and hear a spark; ESD. The system froze and the reset button ended up powering the system completely down.

Now the front panel USBs on my Rampage cannot format a flash drive properly and the file errors are now plentiful. I worked my tail off to buy this sig rig and now I either have to live with the fact the front USBs are no longer reliable or send it off to ASUS and wait until they get it back to me.

Yes I understand it's my fault but that doesn't take away from the fact this sucks (or the fact the humidity here is like 0.5% and you can't reach for anything without a shock) I feel like this things has to be treated like a newborn baby in order to keep it working properly. I had an old Dell that I used and abused to no end and it's still happily chugging along today.

Excerpt from Forrest Gump:
"Whoa you just stepped on a big pile of crap man!"
"It haaappens"
"What, $#!t?"
"Sometiiimes"

That really sucks man... but honestly what can you do, other than get drunk and curse them all night.
If you can afford to have your rig down for a few weeks or so AND having no front usb REALLY bugs you then yea... if not then just live with it.

I use the front USBs to offload pictures from my camera. Said pictures sometimes have people relying on them as well as a dollar value. So the USB controller borking up files isn't really an option for me.

EDIT: Is ASUS timely/reliable with their RMAs?
post #7 of 32
doesn't it come with two sets of plugs for the usb for the front panel plugs. Did you try the other one. or is it being used?

That's right the other plugs are on a different header and possibly a different controller. I forgot about that. The back panel seems to be OK but that's a real PITA.
