1 out of 5 eggs Nice while it worked now endless reboots with H-T enabled and NO FIX 09/16/2013

This review is from: ASUS P8B WS LGA 1155 Intel C206 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server/Workstation Motherboard

Pros:

Nice while it worked - about six months without a hitch. Then all of a sudden endless reboots.

Cons:

Something is seriously wrong with this board.

I was using it as a server - big mistake.

The problem I have is endless reboots with H-T (Hyper Threading) enabled in the BIOS. This problem mysteriously "just happened" a couple of months ago (no cause) and I've been troubleshooting it ever since. Apparently others with this MB may be having the same problem.

ASUS support is a joke. Ridiculously long phone waits, RMA returned the board and got the same board back with NO EXPLANATION, NO FIX, NO REPLACEMENT BOARD and NO BIOS rollback (as requested).

Workstations/Server boards are supposed to be stable - this board is NOT STABLE with H-T enabled in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts:

ASUS used to be the board of choice for system builders - I've built several and for the most part they have been great boards - until the last year or two.

Apparently there are consistent complaints about Customer Service and tricky "fixes" with the boards getting "flaky" in one way or another.

Stay away from this board.

I've built many computers - and I never had such frustration troubleshooting, RMA (fail), and down time as with this board.

The BIOS version cannot be rolled back and this may be the fix - I don't know because the RMA board I got back was the same with NO FIX at all and no BIOS version roll back.

I am extremely frustrated with this board and ASUS customer service.
