ASUS Z8NA-D6C Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server/Workstation Motherboard

Pros: None

Cons: It started off with the motherboard not supporting the 96 Gb of RAM that it claims to be able to support. Sent it to ASUS for fixing, which they said it was fixed, but when I got it back, still didn't support the 96 Gb, with a POST error of DIM_F1 disabled. Its always been able to see that 96 was installed, but only 80 was usable. This tells me the memory works, but there is something wrong with the port. So I called ASUS again and they said the only thing that can be done is to send it in, yet again... for what? To tell me it works when it doesn't. No thanks. So I decided to deal with only 80Gb of RAM and have a spare in case. Now the motherboard gets to post and stops before handing it over to the OS with a blinking cursor. I was able to get it to boot once by switching the SATA HDD mode to AHCI, but now it won't boot at all. It powers on but does nothing. I'm hesitant to call ASUS again, but may not have any other option. Stay away from this board if you can.
