Bad Intel SATA Controller 08/26/2012
This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
price, features, when they all work.
ASUS quality control on this board is substandard. My board did not throw any error codes and appeared to operate perfectly till you tried to access any device connected to the Intel SATA controller. Any device access on the Intel SATA Controller would result in system instability. Since my programs HDD was attached to this controller they would crash repeatedly without warning. My optical drive would also take 10 minutes to load any program. Moved both to the Marvell Controller and magically they worked fine. RMA'd my board.
2 stars for the ASUS product due to poor quality control. Wish I could give 5 stars to NewEgg.com independantly as they always go above and beyond to assist their customers.
Dear Valued Customer,
We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.
Can you try the latest BIOS which address some system stability issues? After updating BIOS, please make sure to load BIOS defaults -- F5. If the conditions exist even after updating BIOS, please consider RMA the motherboard by using our RMA submittal form at http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx or call 1-812-282-2787.
