  • Defective board...seemed to have been version 1.
    Verified Purchase

    Board seemed to be a great deal for the price, considering the amount of features on it. Despite ordering the board in November 2012, I seemed to have gotten a version 1 board. Installed bios wasn't even compatible with Ivy Bridge processors. Updated bios and still had problems. Computer would not wake up from sleep after fans spun down. Attempts to wake up would light up components and fans for a few seconds, and then the board and fans would turn off. I would have to click PSU switch on and off to get it to come back on. Even then, some attempts wouldn't let the system power on. Sometimes I could get system to power on but monitor wouldn't light up until win 7 was already booting. Online forums seemed to have plenty of people w/ the same issue. Contacted customer care, and RMA'd board. Bought an Asus p8z77x-v pro, and I am having absolutely no problems. Despite the great care rep I talked with, they would not send me a replacement first, even after offering credit card info to insure proper return.. This is a system builders worst nightmare. Awaiting store credit for purchase. UPS is now reporting that my RMA has arrived at destination after shipping. Makes me wonder about overstocks inventory management if I'm receiving a version 1 board in November. Thermaltake 850w i7 3770 gtx 550 ti 8gb g-skill 1600
