This review is from: ASUS P7H57D-V EVO LGA 1156 Intel H57 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
New technology has its learning curve. That said, here’s the story. Looked through the specs. to find out what ran on the motherboard. Right processor, check – right memory speed and counts, check – power supply has right plugs and enough power, check.
Got her home, assembled it, and Walla won’t boot. Looked in the book and didn’t find the ram I purchased on the list, so I sent the ram back and got some that was on the list. Put it in, Walla won’t boot... Hmmm. Called Asus. We determined it was either the motherboard or the processor. Well, in 27 years of working on computers I have never had a bad Intel processor so, gota be the motherboard. Got the new one, changed everything out, and Walla – won’t boot. Hhhhhaaa (inhale / exhale). I thought to myself, Frisbee... No, relax, keep your cool... sent the processor back and got a new one. Installed it, (thought about grabbing a beer 1st), but you would be proud, I didn’t. Plugged her in and Walla BOOTED UP LIKE A CHAMP.
Just took 2 extra weeks with all the shipping 3 days each issue... Good patient customer...
I wish newegg would list memory specs on the specifications list to save a web search on the MB.
1st bad Intel processor. No buddy's perfect. New Egg handled that - 5 stars! Great company to work with! Cheaper than my wholesalers, better web site, no minimum order, great RMA, faster service, don’t charge a fee to use a credit card. What else can I say... Outside of loosing 2 weeks, my experience was excellent.
Ten stars for these guys at Asus! Awesome !!! Spoke good English, very intelligent, very helpful, answered the phone within 15 seconds. Every time I called (called 3 times)
They even called back 2 weeks later to close the case file. I thought good service like this had dissappeared. Guess Not!
