Rock solid here, now entering its 10th month. (Knocking on wood)

Exactly what happened to yours? Symptoms?

Mine lasted 2 months before it died. The Fans where all spinning it just
refused to post.
My Friend bought a rev 1 at the same time and his packed up with the same
symptons 2 days ago.

A few weeks ago, my 8KNXP (rev 1) died after about 8 months of normal
use. (I leave my computer on 24x7, and one day, I sat at my desk,
only to find that the system had crashed and would refuse to post upon
rebooting.)

Here in Toronto, it took the Gigabyte service centre about 2 weeks to
get a new board in, and they replaced it with another rev 1. I really
hope this replacement doesn't die. (If so, the 8KNXP will have been
my first -- and probably last -- Gigabyte product.)

Hello

I actually had 3 x rev 1 boards RMA'd. Basically they would not run in a
stable manner. Finally I got a Rev 2 board which is now very stable and has
been used extensively for about 4 months now without issue. More than likely
it was a matter of the components I had but I purchased a Aopen AX4C Max to
use during the 3 months or so on and off that the Gigabyte was away and
everything ran very well. I got very tired of swapping the motherboard out
each time I got a new Rev 1 board back to only find it still did not run
very well. I was going to keep the Aopen board but the Gigabyte has some
nice touches such as the extra ITE IDE ports and full powered external USB 2
and FireWire ports which are connected to my external ports on the top of my
Thermaltake case. Below is my current setup which is running very well and
literally never crashes at all.

I RMA'd my rev 1 after it refused to post. I'd had it for six months

I got a rev 2.0 in return, thanks to newegg.
