First of all, I'd like to thank a specific member of TPU for helping me out with the RMA procedure for the board. He's really been outstanding with all his help, and it is really amazing to know that some people will go to such lengths for a stranger around here. I am not naming him because I do not know whether he wants the "publicity", but he can always chime in and say he's the person I owe a lot to.He also knows how much I appreciated his help. Anyway, I bought an X58 3SLI (a 132-BL-E758-TR) board from said TPU member. The board worked for about half a year, then one bright morning failed to POST. Thankfully it was still under warranty, and the RMA was accepted. The returned board was delayed by customs, who ripped me a new one yet again, and then when I finally got to installing it I discovered that the replacement board has a faulty memory slot. The #5 slot would not detect any memory in it. I tried all my six sticks through it, and while they all work flawlessly in all other slots, they do not work in #5. To make matters worse, the board requires the first three memory sticks to be in slots #1, #3 and #5, so I can't even run three sticks in it for 6GB in triple channel because it won't POST with three sticks in #2, #4 and #6. I even checked for a CPU seating issue, and even tried to different CPUs, but it was of no use. Slot #5 is dead. In short, I am extremely (and that's an understatement) pissed at eVGA's quality control and I will never buy another eVGA product ever again. I am also a bit pissed off at myself: I sold my Q9650 setup and bought a 990X CPU in the meanwhile. My 975 was to be moved to another box together with my DFI X58, and I ordered the 990X without waiting for the eVGA board to return from the RMA, so now I am stuck with two (expensive-as-heck) CPUs and only one X58 motherboard. This brings me to the question of which X58 motherboard I should buy. Money is not an object. I don't care, I want my system up and running as the monster that it is, and I really couldn't care less about the board price. If you were pissed enough to shell out any amount of money for an X58 board, what would it be?
