It's disappointing to hear this news. Reminds me of the late 90s when Gigabyte went bad. That time it was due to their popularity. The increased demand caused QC problems and it got so you couldn't trust any of their boards. I hope this is just a bump in the road and they get their quality back where it should be. It'll be worse if Asus has issues too.

Bummer. It's true that enthusiast boards tend to go in cycles. I've personally had both great successes and failures with both ASUS and Gigabyte. Intels tend to be solid, but they also tend to be fairly vanilla in terms of features and performance.

 

Good luck on your RMA. I hope it fixes your issue.

One thing I have noticed on the sub $100 Intel mobo is that the components seem cheaper. Lots of old-school electrolytic caps, versus solid-state.

Only board I have bought without any problems is EVGA. I love that board. But I don't buy as many boards as you guys do. Only board I have had real problems with is ASUS.
