Since my last post on this motherboard, the P4S800-MX I had some issues that kept coming up. From D.O.A. from the Store, faulty and some intermittent issues from an R.M.A. After spending a few weeks back and forth with Asus. I had to call 812-282-2787 as the tech support number.
As of now, and bouncing this motherboard back and forth, I demanded a quality assurance testing, to make sure the board was in perfect working condition, and update the bios ect. They did, and knock on wood, it is still working! :) Thank You all for your efforts and solutions! I just make sure Asus did in depth quality testing before shipping back to me, or I kept on bugging them! LOL :)

I'm sorry to say that I had much the same problem with a RMA'ed mobo from Asus. The one that came back worked for a short time, and then died.
I can't say that Asus is the only one I've had the same problem with, Intel has done the same. But I kinda expected more from Asus. I did not bother again, I just decided to do a mobo/CPU/memory upgrade at Fry's.
The problem is most likely bad capacitors. The may have used a bad batch, with many people having such issues. I understand it is difficult to get several of the caps out without ruining the board completely, so it may not be worth the time and effort it would take to replace them.
