Reviews and Problems with Asus Rampage III Formula
Showing 1-2 of 2
20 April 2011
Summary: GOOD: Great looking board and well made. Lots of room for expansion. Dual BIOS to let you play around with overclocking. Ran very cool with my fan cooled system. I have always liked ASUS quality. BAD: About a month after I installed the board on a NEW system, USB ports started to randomly cut out (lose power). I replaced my new 1200 watt power supply thinking I was having power problems.
Summary: Amazing board... if/when it works. First board died shortly after install. Second board arrived DOA. Would fail to POST with infamous "Initial USB" error. Clearing CMOS, booting into backup BIOS, reflashing, etc., does not resolve. Should be receiving my third soon. At least Amazon doesn't harass me on the RMA process like other popular online electronic retailers.
