My motherboard, a KV2 Extreme via K8T800 chipset...well! It has been fun. I ordered these all from Newegg.com:
-ordered the motherboard
-installed it, all worked except some bios readings and an ethernet adapter [has 2 built in]
-installed it, Dead On Arrival (DOA)
-ordered another replacement and sent back the first replacement
-installed it, *beep beep*...memory problem, took out 1x of the 512mb corsair, it worked. it booted up to the windows screen *reset...over and over. made sure bios was latest [which it was], re-flashed it, did not help
-and now is where i am now, lol
I should've listened to people about ECS...! But what I'm wondering is... so far my luck is 1 partially working boards to 2 junk boards. I'm willing to stick with the partially working [only probs are bios readings and 1 ethernet adapter doesn't work], but do you think this will lead to what the other two are doing in the future? [Within 2 years, the least I plan to have this computer].
Very annoying. I'm sure newegg agrees. The manufacturer is a complete dumbarse too, they won't even warrent their own items--they say it's newegg's job [luckily they said since mfg won't they will].....
go go ECS! never...again.
