Hi, I'm also a reviewer from the Philippines. Its not big like xbitlabs though but I've had this motherboard for review for quite sometime now. There's a weird issue on my test setup (Core i5-750 + GeForce 9800GT) where at certain games or applications (usually Flash games), the computer lock up or the video would disapper and not come back up. Have you had these issues during your test as well?

If so, how were you able to resolve it? I'm at my wit's end.

Flash Games? This sound like a video card driver problem to me. I'm not sure how a motherboard drivers or features can effect flash games.

GPU? Flash is CPU-based.

It was my understanding that nvidia's drivers support flash functionality.

Well, as far as I know, adobe has just implemented this on Flash. They have just released a beta version which gives flash to use the graphics card for processing and its a little buggy from my experience but works just fine. There's an article from Anandtech that discussed the details of this but my problem was not limited to Flash games only. Warcraft 3 for example opens up and shows the interface but when the game starts, video disappears and I would have to restart it.

Anyway, I've already returned the board back to Asus. It looks good alright and I must say I have to agree with the author here; I wouldn't buy it but if they give it to me, hell I'd say yes. I already have 2 other Asus products queued for review; Maximus Gene and the P7P55D Deluxe.

Odd, you knew nothing of what I wrote to you regarding GPU flash functionality until I provided you a direct link from Nvidia themselves saying they do in fact support flash. Now you are more forth coming of such a thing even mentioning Anandtech as a reference. Odd indeed.
