    My 4th Striker Extreme died last night so this morning I picked up a ASUS P5N-T Deluxe on the cheap.

    OMG... So much more stable, easy to OC, and it runs cooler. :toast:

    Why didn't I do this sooner? :eek:

    Just for kicks:

    Striker 1: Bad RAM slot :mad:
    Striker 2: Unstable at stock :shadedshu
    Striker 3: Froze in BIOS :banghead:
    Striker 4: NB temp shot up to 100c randomly then it rebooted, turned off, then never would post again. :wtf:

    When they worked they were pretty fast tho but they were picky about everything.

    This new mobo just works. :)

    Pics after I got the new motherboard and cpu cooler installed this morning.

    welcome to the club. i had 11 i think. idk... maybe it was 12. i had a few p5n32-e's as well.

    i finally went to the evga 680i. had 2 of them and never one problem. i followed them with 5 evga 780i's and 3 790i's.... all shit.

    thats why i swear on asus. never once had any problems with the 30+ asus boards i've had.

    Heh, yea.

    I'm going to RMA this last Striker and sell it or use it in a spare non overclocked rig.

    They are seriously going to be like WTF when I call them again. Blame it on "user error" or some BS like that. But ASUS has been good to me, I think the Striker was just too advanced for it's own good.

    So far this board has been a dream.

    I've used the EVGA 780i boards and wanted to shoot myself. At work I once had three DOA's in a row........
