While I agree that sucks, that's just some effing bad luck. You can blame ASUS's poor quality control, but TBH their quality control for most people is very good. I'm running a P5QL pro, and it's just great.

I've had some sort of issue with every ASUS motherboard I've owned/used (P4T, K8V-X, A8N-SLI, P5N-SLI, P5B Deluxe, M2A-VM HDMI, P5Q Deluxe), but my next motherboard will probably be one, given the luck I've had with other manufacturers. As far as other hardware goes, video cards and optical drives have all worked fine.

I think he meant that they didn't work the way they were supposed to, not that they weren't a perfect motherboard.

I need a translator now

but since you talk about perfect motherboard

Perfection do not exist , they are always place for improvement, if mother nature have thing like this we will still be eating leaves in a tree , if not a simple cell floating in water

Just to give you an idea of what kind of thing I have in my head :
I will like to see the CPU socket on the other side of the board, so we we can concentrate the cooling an other place , like a simple heat sink on the full side of the case, no fan at all. It's not only the case manufacturer who don't do their job

Its all hit and miss (just some companies have more misses than others). The only MOB I have had die was an MSI and I have since had a couple ASUS boards without issue. Nothing against MSI, but I am now turned off from them (though I would possibly consider getting another in the future). My current ASUS board has some features missing that I would like to have, but you can't have everything in a budget board. Overall asus get a thumbs up from me.

I will stick with what works, unless they start overpricing everything. ASUS for me (atleast for a MOB)

Fair enough, though I think Gigabyte has eclipsed them in a lot of respects personally. Still, I'd never hesitate to buy from either company.

AkG talk about 386 and 486 board

here a text from the history of Asus, it will give you an idea about the engineer capability of Asus :

When the Intel 486 first came out, the four ASUS founders decided to design their own 486 motherboard without having a 486 processor prototype on site, using only the technical details published by Intel and the experience they gained while making the 386 motherboards. When ASUS finalized their 486 motherboard prototype, they took it to Intel's base in Taiwan for testing. Unsurprisingly, they were not formally greeted when they arrived.

It turned out that Intel's own 486 motherboard prototype had recently malfunctioned, and Intel's engineers were still working on the solution. The ASUS founders exercised their experience with the 486 and had a look at Intel's malfunctioning motherboard. Their solution worked, to the Intel engineers' surprise. Intel then tested the ASUS prototype, which functioned perfectly. This marked the beginning of an informal relationship between the two companies - ASUS now receives Intel engineering samples ahead of its competitors.
