[主機板] Asus motherboard life

本帖最後由 wklie 於 2015-8-21 15:12 編輯

I've been using Asus motherboards since the era of PVI-486AP4.  In the past I didn't have Asus motherboard dying before they were retired.  One particular motherboard P2B actually worked for at least 7 or 8 years before it is thrown away.

In recent years I've started to have dying motherboards:
- P5K-SE
- P5K/EPU
- P7H55-M/USB3 (bought in late 2011, chose Clarkdale instead of Sandy Bridge)

I think most of these worked for roughly 4 years before they failed.  I'm not complaining, just want to ask whether this is the norm.

(I recognize the costs of motherboards are different - P2B cost more than any of the three I listed above, and was already 4x the price of a current H81M-E ($340) even before adjustment for inflation.

I didn't have a good experience with Asrock.  I had pretty good experiences with Gigabyte but don't want to buy it anymore after this news: http://www.hkepc.com/12018/page/2

So I'm sticking to Asus motherboard no matter what.)

I still have a p5k SE running q9550 overclocked to 3.7GHz
How did your Asus motherboard die? just won't boot?

Motherboard LED on.  CPU FAN on.  No POST.  No display.  No Beep.  Using another power supply does not change anything.

    sorry to hear that, at least it served you well.

I am still using a q6600 as unRAID server, another q9550 as workstation.
Funny thing is, they are smoother than most i5 ultrabook.

I recently bought asus z97 and 4790k. today one of the lock of a RAM Slot is broken, and i realized how flimsy the plastic lock. Quality is declining I think ~_~

P5B deluxe 用咗8年未死
Z97-pro 用左一年,希望用到5年

Using P7P55 for 5 years. One Ram slot fails and the board starts having some minor errors recently.

華碩以前D 版耐用D, 記得玩過P4C800E Deluxe, 用左8年都未死, 亦無電容漏油問題, 只係太慢先焗住換...
