Summary: I'd recommend staying away from ASUS. Their quality is in decline, and their customer service (which used to be excellent) was eerily similar to every Dell CS encounter I have had. My motherboard died after 3 months of good use. Asus said they would send RMA form, but it didn't come. I called and they said to wait a bit longer for it. It still never came. Called again, and they told me they messed up and would be sending out the form within the hour.
Summary: I have had this board about 7 months. The first board Amazon shipped to me was not DOA, but shortly into the build it wouldn't post. I was never sure if it was the power supply or the Board so I did an RMA of both and Amazon was happy to help. 3 weeks ago I went from a HDD OS to a SDD OS. The install went very smooth until I decided to update the BIOS from AI Suite as part of the upgrade (BIOS 3402). The BIOS supposedly flashed ok and on restart the real trouble began.
