"All of them" here means all modles of them
as for 40 % thats the avrage faliure rate for every modle...
I know that the sources are not that authentic but I didn't exaggerate at what they said
yes I agree that almost all of the boards have this issue and you said it your self that "Problems only arise when your running memory at speeds beyond it's rated capabilities" well the i7 is rated at 1066 but who has a memmory for the i7 that has no SPD beyond 1066. may be 2% only. So that takes me to the i7 memmory contoller part.
well I have to agree what you imply makes sense: let me rephrase :
the i7 memmory controller was not made to run >1066 memmorys with 2 banks, (I sure don't hope it goes for the single bank too
anyways back to the topic. I was a fool not to have listened to any body. And might this be a lesson for all that ever read this.
During my research I hand picked asus due to its features but had the DX58SO in mind
I asked a few forums that all screamed ASUS
I asked one of my friends and he reccomended ASUS
then I went to the shop and the keeper also sided with ASUS
But guess what the stubborn me endded with this board....
this comes from a guy with a whole lot of intel boards experience:
when no one is there to give you advice, even then listen to the silent walls around you, may they offer you a better alternative.
