I Have owned several ASUS boards and never had that problem. I now have the same board in my third back up puter so I guess I won't be expecting it to last long....Dang!!!!
Personally, since I use Intel CPU's I always go with intel Boards and have never had one fail. Abit or Lanparty, I hear are good though.
