NP - good luck bro! I find that patiently insisting while respecting the service rep almost always gets me the best result. The EGG has always treated me well, but not without a little effort on my part

Yea I knew I might be able to do that. I was just on the border to try again or get a different one. The Asus one comes with the a male to a male usb cable which are not to cheap with shipping. This would make up part of the difference in switching.

I already called the Egg and got a RMA return. They will refund me my money. I am about to buy the ASUS. As soon as I get done managing my forums. Damn Bots. What do you expect for free.

Called the Egg again. Had the wrong return address on the info. Got it figured out. I had sent a MB to a friend from NewEgg. They were using the last ship address. No big deal. They said the correct account and everything was on it and my card would get credited. Yea.

The final out come. Full refund and they paid for the shipping.

Ordered the ASUS Formula. Its on the way. The other nice thing I like about the board is the accessories. It comes with Sata III 6gb cables. I could have saved some more money just on that info. Like I said before I should have taken a closer look at it; however, past EVGA fan and looked to be $50 cheaper plus the combo with the I970. I would have had that board less then $200. I wonder if they will take my combo discount back? Hummm. Prob not. LOL Doesnt matter how good of a deal if the thing does not work.

Thankfully I did have another graphics card to test it with and for some reason it turned out to be my HD5870 being the problem but I still don't understand the reason behind it. It's good to see that other people aren't getting similar problems because that was its only downside.

I wouldn't listen to TTL's review because he rushed his. The R3F is well worth the money and an excellent board. It's the perfect alternative to the Extreme.
Actually, we did do some quite extensive testing and posted it in our review here, and also in the thread on XS here at the time. There's a dialogue between you and Supershanks that wrote our review on XS in the last link!

Hehe yeah, I wrote that post above before I noticed Supershank's update. Looks like we're back to square one on that issue. Based on what people were saying here, I thought the problem was just my board but if you're getting similar findings with yours (and others as well now in the forums), then the board obviously has something wrong with it. I emailed ASUS about it and they only showed me results at under 216MHz BCLK. They didn't show me any tests above that base clock settings where the issue becomes prevalent.

Edit: I didn't mean to sound offensive but I was frustrated that at the time when I actually had the board, noone had checked if it was just my board or not .

Asus likes to sidestep the issue. I think we should get one mega thread where everyone with a RIIIE or RIIIF runs a certain set of tests and reports back with results.
