I started with the SE Deluxe - Would not install Win - 7, Ubuntu or XP. It was returned to retailer.
This was replaced with a P6T. It installed the OSes and ran beautifully. It would lock up on the
first boot in the morning and then run OK. I took it back before the 30-day retailer return window closed.
It was replaced by another P6T and it wouldn't install the OSes.
From research and response to the forum query, the problem could have been the Corsair 950 PSU.
After a couple of months a Giga UD5 was purchased. all the hardware was loaded and it has been stable for
better than 30 days. The Corsair memory is supposed to be 1600 VMP. The current Giga will not boot with
the VMP settiing. A manual set will not boot to 1600 speed ram. It will boot to a 1333 OCed in the BIOS.
I don't know if this is inherent to the Giga hardware configuration or I haven't figured out the correct BIOS settings
I could be a limitation of the I7 920 CPU.
The specs on ASUS are great, But the GIga boots.
