I must be on my 6th or 7th Asus board. Never had a problem with Linux. Never
had a board fail. Including the one that must be 20 years old and would still
run today if I felt like plugging it in.

Re-ship??? Asus doesn't deal with customers. By the time a board gets back to
Asus the dealer would have handled it. The distributor would have handled it.
Both would have checked the board in my expierence. By this point why would
they re-ship a board that has failed two checks? Now your dealer might have
returned the board to you.

I do remember Nvidia running fast and lose with the video specs and causing
problems. Not because the Asus board was out of spec but because Nvidia was
counting on the MB to be poorly made and out of spec. But any board maker
that does that is the one causing the problems.
