OK, gents,
My last two personal builds have been on ASUS boards.
I started out the first buld with a Gigabyte board, but it would not support the waterblocks I needed because of poor PCI-E slot configurtions. I went for an A8N-SLI-Premium with a AMDx2 4400+, ended up sending the whole kit an kabootle back to Newegg as I couldn't get a post. I don't know if it was a MB issue or one of the other new components.
Second try on the A8N worked very well, for about 5 years, if not more. The MB/CPU/MEM still work, but were getting too long in the tooth speed wise so I descided to upgrade.

I went with an ASUS RAMPAGE II Extreme MB. Search the HWA Boards for that way beyond crazy experience! ASUS did an advance RMA on the damaged MB, and I had the board by second day air, though it did take more than a week to clear up the RMA acceptance process in which they initially claimed that I'd sent them a board that was not qualified (evidently a auto response, like those of insurance companies), but after review was accepted. The new board has been kicking for about a year now (see BIO).

Insofar as QC, I've had worse luck with MSI than ASUS for MANY years, starting in the mid-90s. On workstations I think that Gibabyte and ASUS give very good bang for the buck, and Tyan can compete (I've only sent back less than 0.5% of all tyan boards) in workstation and server environments, and SuperMicro good as well in workstations and Servers.

Dude, this whole thread is about Asus desktop motherboards, not about Asus laptops. If you're talking about the scroll function of the trackpad, you can turn it off from the trackpad settings (under mouse settings).

BTW, ironically, it was the guys who made your Apple boards who jumped...

These guys are all on drugs of some sort, Asus is one of the best brands today and the most reliable at that.

Judging by the amount of thought you put into that post, a Mac seem to be a perfect match for you.

I have been telling most people to stay away from these boards, and ive been telling many people to get one of the MSI SLI boards, and more advanced users to get a DFI sli board.

Thanks for the post.
