ASUS builds lousy boards and does not stand behind them.

Summary: I purchased this board at the beginning of the year. A couple weeks ago, I added a second set of RAM sticks. The computer started rebooting on every startup, then would stabilize. Today it would not start up at all. I started troubleshooting the RAM only to have a retaining clip for one of the sticks (ASUS now only puts one clip per RAM stick) fall off.
Summary: I purchased this board for my son as a Christmas present in a Microsel "Unlocked & Overclocked Core i5-2500K 4.4 GHz Pre-Configured" bundle with an i5 Intel processor, 8 Gb of Corsair Vengeance RAM and a Corsair liquid CPU cooler. This was supposed to be a "plug and play" preconfigured bundle.
Wouldn't stay powered up, and customer support was useless

Summary: Attempted to install with an Intel I7 2600k, Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 DDR3, and a Crucial M4 256GB solid state drive. When attempting to install Windows 7, the machine would always reboot within 1 minute of beginning the install. The power supply is 700 W, so I don't think that's the issue. The BIOS recognizes all the RAM - even so I tried swapping out with some GSKILL RAM I had in another computer - no joy.
Summary: Do not buy this mainboard if you want SLI - it does not support SLI as it's supposed to be. feeling so bad like i was cheated when I can't get my 2 brand new vga work together - that was bios problem.
Summary: Works awesome, overclocks my i5 2500k @ 4.5Ghz, i was able to OC to 5Ghz but temps went to 85C and had to use high voltages so decided to stick to 4.5 with 1.28 volts, which was ok for 24/7. I love the new bios, mouse support and everything is nice and clean. Has bluetooth and other nice features. The card is ok price. UPDATE: Motherboard DIED within a week of use. Someday it didnt want to turn on, it just like power for just a second and then shut off by itself.
Summary: I have RMA'd TWO P8P67 boards The features are cool but they don't work on most of the boards. Drag and drop only shows 3 drives so if you have more forget it won't show them. I had Had 5 B.S.O.D incidents, double posting...they will Not wake up from sleep 2 boards same issue - called ASUS - Ceasar in Tech support told me that the boards were junk and I should try their other lines of boards that are NOT P8P67 since these boards have had so many issues.
Summary: My first one did not even show any attempt to post. fans and lights came on, but no further response. I tried different video, cpu, hd and memory-still the same. I RMA'd for a replacement. I did not work either. I did not have the nerve to try a third, so I ordered a different model board, which did work on first attempt. This is disappointing because I was anxious to try the i7.
Summary: I can not recommend this product to anyone. I really wanted to like it. It took many hours to get it to work right without crashing, blue screening, etc. Maybe others don't have the same issues and are lucky. But I read many others having similar issues. I don't have the energy to go into it. I'll just say if you are in my situation, building a pc with 2 raid 1 arrays and 2 graphics cards, stay away. Maybe if you're just running a single drive it will be ok.
Summary: Initial board broke (no POST) before the B3 update. I returned, got the new B3 and found it suffers from same major problems as original board: - POST is slow and troublesome. It will reboot several times each time you turn it on doing whatever it's doing. Sometimes the post will fail and you'll have to F1 and reset and then it (might) boot with the same settings. Each boot goes through FIVE BIOS screens- that's 15 screens you have to wait through on every boot.
