Yes, the motherboard ended up being faulty. But what I said here is
from a different supplier. I work with about 8 suppliers, and there's
only supplier in the whole country who supplies Super Micro, but their
after-sales support really sux, which is why I won't support them, and
also why I can't use SuperMicro.

Currently, when one of my Dell's give hassles, Dell will come out
within 4 hours to fix it up. On the stuff that I build myself, I can
drive to a supplier and get a replacement component and have it
swapped out within an hour. And since I use desktop type components, I
can also use components from other suppliers, not just one.


Kind Regards
