Hey guys. Don't come around here much, but I'm a mod over at TPU. I've been running this board with a 2600K for about 3 weeks, and before it a 2500K. Just thought I'd drop in since I've been following this thread. I've been talking to a Biostar USA rep over the last couple of weeks. I'm being told that they should have replacements available on 3/11, if all goes as planned. I'll hopefully have some confirmation of this by Monday. Much earlier than most of us thought.
I'm really liking this board. I have noticed one odd thing when I'm testing for stability on higher clocks. I can do a a 25 pass linX or Intel burn in, and I'll pass...but then the system will BSOD like 10 to 15 minutes after the test have completed successfully. I've owned dozens of boards, and I've never seen that before. Weird.
Regarding BSODs at idle, seems like alot of people have had this problem with Sandy Bridge, I'm pretty sure it's not a Biostar issue since there is mention of same issue in asus threads as well.
Can you pass prime95 blend for 1hr ? Some people think linX is easier to pass than prime95 blend on SB. If you want, post your OC settings here and which BIOS you are on, and we'll take a look and see if anything stands out.
