Striker Extreme-ly likely to be DOA 03/31/2008
None. Its like owning a flood damaged porsche. It may look good but what good is that if it doesn't run.
Bought first one. Got delivered, installed it. DOA. ok, these things happen. Went through the RMA process and got a second one. Worked fine for a week then audio stopped working. Next came extremely high CPU temp's (70+). Re-installed the heatsink, changed out the thermal grease with same result. Bought and installed new heatsink, same thing. Try and play any games, it shuts itself down. Called ASUS customer support. Spent the standard 45 minutes on hold, before speaking to a guy who was nasty. When I explained that what I had done, he said it must be my processor. I told him I had tested it in another board and it was fine. Back on hold for another 35 minutes. Finally RMA, request but out of stock. Expect 4 to 5 weeks. Will never buy another ASUS product.
Newegg has been very helpfull. Called customer support this morning and got a live person on the phone within 3 minutes. Explained my problems and frustrations and they are handling the RMA. Very happy with Newegg and will continue to buy parts from them, just will not be buying anything from ASUS. Newegg's only fault in my opinion is that they should stop selling a board that obviously (from looking online) has so many problems.
