I am currently building a new system and picking a mother board is near dammed impossible. I have never been a fan of ASUS and their products have had recurring issues that transcended model and processor types in my experience forcing me to avoid recommending them for a long time. As it turns out ASUS now is only manufacture that offers a feature set and board lay out that want. In that light, I wan to know of people recent experience with ASUS before I chance my money with them again. Of particular interest: 1. Has your ASUS board been in operation for over 2 years in complete stability (plz don't confuse software/OS fail)? 2. Have you ever had to reset the CMOS out of the blue just to get the machine to boot? 3. If necessary, did their technical support respond in a timely fashion? 4. Is their OC powers all that review sites make it out to be? 5. How temperamental are their mother boards to fully loaded PCI slots? 6. Can their products handle above average temperatures? 7. Is you mother bard Lan Party friendly (does not kick a fuse when moved around)?
