Alls I have to say is Asus quality control is completely going down the ****ter....

I don't know what made me decide to put up with it a 4th time, but this board finally F'n works! First board, DOA. Second board DOA, third board booted, but once you shut down, it wouldn't boot until you reset memory timings. FOURTH BOARD I plugged in and VIOLA!

Now I have to add this board is not perfect, but I can't tell if it might have to do with my TV. I cannot get it to boot off of HDMI on my smaller TV (I dual screen on my workstation) however with my 50" samsung it will boot no problem. Once its booted you can plug in HDMI no problem so I don't know. Theres some issues with the HDMI though because unlike other boards, this HDMI for some reason recognized it as a "DVI to HDMI Adapter" and failed to give me sound. I don't even give a rip now, I may figure it out down the road as being a mobo setting. This board hasn't given me a memory error yet at my rated 7-8-7 timings, and I am beginning to overclock already, currently sitting at 3.6Ghz. Temps are rising kinda quick on the CPU under load, think I need to get a second fan on the radiator... I reached 50 in about 3 minutes, sitting back down at 38 at idle. Vcore 1.4 which I probably don't need yet.

Anyways, this is my rant on Asus. Unless I start hearing good things in the future, I'm done with them.
