    I build a lot of computers and have just been having a ton of problems with the ASUS motherboards lately. First 1 ASUS A7V333-R wouldnt work, 2nd an ASUS P4S8X (Wouldnt even load the OS), Now a ASUS A7-V333 that will not even complete a hardware scan to load the OS. [​IMG]
    I dont know what the heck has been going on, if I just got a bad batch, or if their QC has gone to hell. Has anyone else been having any problems with them?

    kyle -

    i recently picked up an asus p4b533-e board. have not had any problems (that i'm aware of).

    seems pretty solid to me.

    My first A7V333-R was a dud - my second has been solid.

    For me, this is a great reason never to buy a MB over the net - I've had too many failures. I will buy all my MBs at Fry's now - I can always take it back if it dies. Seems like MB's are always my weakest link when building a system.
