Gigabyte P67-UD4 1155 Motherboard: Piece of Junk? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Get a replacement when they start shipping again. At this point, any AMD build will be a step backwards. The top end hex-cores are pretty nice, but still manage to fall to P67 quads in a number of benches.

The only other logical move is to go 1366.

I'm going to wait it out and see if a new motherboard fixes the problem. If it doesn't, I'll wait it out and see if a new BIOS fixes the issue. If still there is no solution, I'll just sell my graphics card, processor, and motherboard. I'll probably lose out on $100 on the graphics card, $100 on the processor, and $80 on the motherboard... so probably will be out $280 reselling this stuff (thinking I'll only get in a few months from now $250 for the graphics card at best, $100 for my mobo, and $220 for my processor). At best.

Every complaint has been legitimate. I can even list it off:
- First was the GTX 460 which had driver crashing issues on updated drivers
- Second was the 950W Corsair power supply which squealed
- Third was the Asus Pro 1155 motherboard which disallowed overclocking on any BIOS (just wouldn't work). Tech looked at it too and allowed a replacement (made me replace my processor at the same time though).
- Fourth now is the motherboard which has the SATA2 port recall issue.
- Fifth is possibly the motherboard or the 6970 (not sure which, could be a combination of both... but it works on a different motherboard), where drivers are an issue. Also Starcraft 2 freezes up randomly (for 1-2 seconds), and randomly my system will take 2 minutes or more to start up (for no good reason) with my SSD (using SATA3 ports).

My luck = the worst. These are all legitimate problems I've experienced. Every single one was troubleshot and every single one I attempted to fix. Every single return was authorized in person by the techs at NCIX who agreed there was an issue (usually they just accept a return within 15 days as long as an explanation is given; but half the time they test the stuff to ensure what I'm saying is true).

Plus I have a P67A-UD4 board and all my drivers work for me perfectly.
Yeh I have UAC enabled.
