Problems, problems and problems with ASUS P8H77-M Pro

Summary: I purchased two of these MB through Amazon.com back in August this year, but I've been having problems with both of them. I built the systems from scratch and everything in them is new (memory, power supply, case, etc) First problem was with memory, the Corsair Vengeance memories, one system has a 2x4GB kit and the other a 2x8GB kit; I returned the 2x8GB kit to Corsair and the one that I got back seems to be working, I don't have the constant BSOD and reboots I was...
Summary: I wanted to build a PC as a replacement for my cable boxes and DVR, using a slim, AV-component styled and completely silent and fanless case. Since I also wanted top performance, I wanted a motherboard that could be tweaked to allow the best mix of performance, energy consumption and heat. The ASUS H77 PRO seemed like the best bet for me, and so far I haven't been disappointed. The fit was perfect in my fanless HTPC case..
Great motherboard for 3rd gen HTPC or SFF gaming build
24 May 2012
Summary: I purchased from amazon itself. I am not enamored of associated 3rd party shippers from my previous experience. Very good instructions, good build quality and good drivers. I have had the best luck with ASUS motherboards in the past and so far this one seems to be a winner. I am building a quiet SFF HTPC, so the support for intel integrated graphics and HDMI was very important as well as alternative of adding PCI-E card if necessary.
Summary: I will update this review if the replacement motherboard actually works. The first one from Amazon was essentially dead on arrival. Installed it in a new system build with an Intel Core i7-3770 (Ivy Bridge) CPU and Kingston HyperX 1600 DDR3 DIMMS (2x4-GB) that was listed as compatible memory for this motherboard. Did not install any discrete graphics cards. Power supply is a new Cooler Master 800W Silent Pro Gold.
Great Micro ATX Board for your Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge CPU

Summary: It took a little time to whittle down all the boards out there. I am partial to Asus. I wanted a micro atx to keep the size down. I didn't care about overclocking. I wanted THunderbolt support. Only a handful of boards have it and this is the least expensive of them. I wanted VGA and DVI, HDMI and Displayport video outs. The Ivy Bridge CPU's will support a triple monitor setup. I wanted eSATA and at least 7 internal SATA I did not want any PCI slots.
Summary: its been a while since i built a machine. the boards have moved on at a tremendous pace in their design. I now am looking for display port products and upgrading my own vista based system, its archaic. This is a really good board packed with features and built for a friend. He is living in the dark ages with his pentium d cpu etc. Arrived safely, good packaging and great product.
