    Re: QOTW: Has your motherboard ever failed?

    I have only ever had one DoA board, discounting server motherboards in work, I have never had one fail actively.

    The DoA board was an Asus m5a78l-m/usb3, wouldn't post or power on but Scan happily replaced it and the next one was perfect and I used right up until replacing with a PileDriver system.

    Back in the day the legendary Abit BH6 all good until they released an bios upgrade "FU" and it did; one dead motherboard after flashing.

    Not had much luck with Gigabyte one failing motherboard after a couple of years (started with sound card then NIC). My worse failure was a Gigabyte GTX-1080 ti which failed two weeks out of warranty and Gigabyte told me to do one as no spare parts (despite the £50 out of warranty repair service they supposedly offer). Not buying their hardware any more.

    Never had a problem with MSI or Asus motherboards and I've sold plenty on to friends/family that are still going with Windows 7 etc.

    yes but that was in the days, where you actually had to move jumpers and such manually... and actually needed a little personal expertise setting your stuff up, today its all software unlike back then.

    Re: QOTW: Has your motherboard ever failed?

    I remember when I was trying to spec new nforce 2 mobos for desktops for a startup. I had just personally bought a MSI one and it worked pretty well, I decided to try and go safe with Asus Nforce2 boards for work, neither board was working with a production CPU, BIOS problems galore, updated bios where possible but even the Asus release bioses on their homepage really didn't work at all, was a major fail, was tasked with workstations for founder level employees, just no joy at all. Haven't bought anything at all Asus since. Should have gone MSI lol

    No, only failure I've had is from shipping.

    Went through about 3 Supermicro H8DCE, eventually found out it was very picky about the power supply unit .
