Ok, there can be two explanations; either 1. Asus boards are the most commonly used mobos and that's why there are so many posts in here regarding problems with them OR 2. They are actually very problematic boards I know they usually reign supreme (or used to) in all the bechmark tests AND they are the MOST expensive boards on the market. Please give your experiential feedback on these notorious motherboards. I'm an MSI builder BTW. No floppy drive necessary for BIOS flashing!!!
