Need a Replacement Please help.

Long story short I'M DONE! I'm tired of my Sabertooth 990FX, it's gotta be replaced ASAP. I won't describe all its problems I do not want advice on fixing it i'm sorry, just warning you DO NOT GET this board. It is horrible, unstable, and inconsistent. Wasted $189.00 now. I will NOT RMA it, I'm going to blow it to pieces with my shotgun I think. I know the current power pull of my CPU is very high. I'm willing to spend $150 on a new MoBo. Is there a stable, non-ASUS and suitable replacement?

MoBo that is being replaced:

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Here is what I have currently:

CORSAIR Professional Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Semi ...

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1866C9R

  1. Don't be a fool; send in the board to asus and sell the replacement. As long as it has no physical damage, they may replace it. I use parcel post to send mine in; as long as you use a shipping label and package it in a separate box (keep the accessories) they will accept it. And if it's that bad, try flashing the bios with the latest version; if the flash fails and it won't post, then you'll have a legitimate excuse to rma it. And now for a replacement board: . You really don't need all the features of the sabertooth, and as you found out, spending alot won't guarantee you a good board.
  2. I apologize for seeming silly, I just feel fed up with it. I'll probably RMA it and in process get another. The problem I have is I will not be able to sell the motherboard, people already know of its problems and are avoiding it like a disease from what I've seen. I could be wrong.
  3. *BUMP*
    I'll RMA it and try this, however what rands would anyone recommend?
