Did you RMA your motherboard?
I thought for a couple days that you got it working somehow and you were too busy with your new computer that your forgot to tell us.
and yes, it is a very big move from 2D side scrollers to actual 3D gaming O.o
If I could actually get some1 on the phone at Asus that doesn't give me a run-around, i might get the opportunity to.
Unfortunately this is Asus' trademark: Lousy customer service. There are exceptions but I have lost count of the number of people that have run into the very same thing especially the phone route.
I think you'll a better response if you request an RMA via email. If that doesn't work then I suggest going to the CPUS, Chipsets, & Mobos forum here and ask for aadvice on the best way to get an RMA through Asus.
Another Victim... : http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic112521.html
the first thing to try is to get MOBO supported ram as ASUS MOBO's are very picky with ram, and give lots of problems with unsupported ram.
Well..... I been fighting with Asus now for 2+ months......
I finally gave in and went to the stor today.
Picked up a EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicat...p?EdpNo=4111623&sku=E145-2042&srkey=E145-2042
And i am now posting from my rig... which is working JUST fine.
The mobo was shot, and Asus was a pain in the ****. Dont get me wrong.... I don't dislike Asus products.... I think that board would have been amazing, had i gotten it to work.
In the mean time, I have the new board i linked, and will continue to duke it out with Asus.
To every1 that spent their time helping... T H A N K Y O U ! ! ! ! !
This was my first build, and it was a nightmare, but you guys really helped educate me, and make it less painful than it could have been.
Asus isn't known for quality customer service. I am glad you got back to us and everything is running fione now. Thanks for letting us know.
Same thing .
