Yea i guess all manufacturers will have lemon boards, but when you are known for having motherboards that die? uhh that just ain't 50-60 lemon boards out of say 1,000,000 good ones, thats at least 5-10% of them being lemons.. Thats what warranty is there for i guess.

Since your mobos were P35, that explains it. The Gigabyte P35 motherboards were an early example of what they have now. You could abuse the new design for years and it still wont die.
