They were all recalled due to a serious problem.
Boards are now available from Asus and Gigabyte with problems cured.
The fault was if you plugged hard drives into SATA 2, a workaround was to use the new SATA 3 6GB leads/sockets.
Preferred Power supplies are 600W+ ideal 750 Watt but a decent 500 watt might suffice but not the budget rubbish.
I bought the Asus board on EBay but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not rev3, do you know if Asus are doing a free exchange for faulty boards John?
