ASUS P8Z68-V LX problems
 
I know it's kind of a cheap board, but it was all Tiger Direct had left on the shelf Boxing Day 2011.
That said, it's been fine until about 2 weeks ago.
2 of the rear USB ports have stopped working. The only thing I've used them for is a new Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse.
About the same time I started getting a message that the driver for my XFX 6850 had stopped working. Screen would go blank, then come back in about 15 seconds. Reinstalled the driver, same problem.
This is all after installing windows 8 about a month ago.
Is there a chance these problems are software related, or is it a crapped out motherboard?
Don't think its heat related.
Intel 2600k
XFX 6850
Corsair 750 watt power supply
8 gb Corsair Vengeance ram
Corsair H60 cooler
OCZ Vertex 3 SSD
WD Black
Rosewill Destroyer case

Solved
 
Updated the Bios and all is well. For Now.
Definitely keep my eyes open for a better board.
I should know better than buy a $125 board, with a $1000 dollars worth of equipment depending on it.

It may be a cheap board but things like USB-ports and that "basic" stuff is almost the same even on expensive boards.

I have the Z68-V LX myself and i am very pleased with it. Could never imagine it would overlock this good.
I run my i5 2500k 3.3Ghz @ 4.7Ghz, fully stable with prime95 @ 1.360v. Load temp with prime95 are max 80() degrees celsius with air. I use the Noctua U12 cooler.

(Sorry for bad english, i am from Sweden) :)
