DOA, Painful RMA

Pros: All the features the motherboard is supposed have.
The mobo is loaded with just about all the features you could ask for on a single motherboard.

Cons: The board could not be used since day 1 (purchased on 08/03/2011).
I RMA'd my unit because Newegg sent me back the motherboard indicting the board is physically damaged (I cannot agree, since I was not aware of any damage and neither did technicians at Asus).
First RMA took about 2 weeks. It came defective again.
I wasted about half a day trying to figure out what was wrong with it until I decided to RMA again.
Second RMA took another 2 weeks. It came back defective again! I found out that ASUS just sent me back the motherboard after just testing the board. No documentation regarding what has been tested. I am becoming skeptical about their test, since there is no record of exactly what has been tested. I have tried the motherboard with 2 different sets of components. Both of the sets are working fine on my other boards. They also are listed under qualified vendors list.
I need to RMA again, but not sure if the problem will ever be resolved at this rate.

Other Thoughts: ASUS RMA sucks.
The RMA number cannot be located online.
Phones are constantly not working, so you can't reach them.
Even when you do get to talk to them, they sound like they don't really care about the situation. I even had a guy hanging up a phone on me. Another person told me they are tech support team and not customer service representatives when I told them I had a person hanging up a phone call on me.
My 4th RMA was supposed to be a cross ship. I sent mine in on 02/10/2012, delivered to them on 02/14/2012. Asus still do not even have my replacement unit's shipping information as of 02/15/2012.

I am beginning to think ASUS stopped production of this board due to too many issues. Newegg no longer has this item in stock. I see several other who had similar experience

Memory/boot drive issues

Pros: Works well. Overclocks well. Nice looking.

Cons: More than 6gb's of memory and my boot drive shows major decrease and a continuing precipitous drop in available space.

Other Thoughts: Even aside from this issue, this board is overpriced. Can't wait for x79.

Beautiful Full featured Board

Comments: With all of the problems I saw with the board and reported by others I decided to go with A Gigabyte Assassin. I really wish it hadn't these issues. I may try again, a new BIOS was just released on 10/10.11
