100% of ASUS boards have been stable for me over the years.

Hi, first I'd like to say every system I've built for myself, or for customers using ASUS MB has been rock solid.

The only stability issue we've seen with a P4C800-E Deluxe system was fixed by upgrading the power supply. It would randomly lockup about once a day and sometimes wouldn't boot up. Once we replaced the power supply there were no more problems and the system has been solid since then, it's about 8 months now.

The only other issue was the earlier BIOS that the P4C800-E Deluxe came with didn't support RAID 1 (mirroring) for the IDE RAID controller. I sent some emails to ASUS, never heard back from them, but there was a new BIOS released a day or so after I emailed them that fixed the problem.

My main system:
P4C800-E Deluxe
2.4C overclocked to 3Ghz, 1 Ghz FSB, just using the retail Intel HS/Fan that came with the CPU
1 Gig Kingston HyperX PC3500
2 x WD 160G IDE mirrored as data drives
1 40G IBM "Deathstar" (mislabed as "Deskstar") IDE system drive
eVGA 6800nu video card
Logitech WingMan Gaming Mouse (have to have 3 approx. equal mouse buttons!)

I think ASUS boards used to be made only in Taiwan? Then they started shifting some production to China? I think that's when their quality control started to slip? Before that, if the MB was ASUS, that was enough to rule out any possibilty that probelms were because of the motherboard, they were pretty much just as reliable as gravity is. I started using ASUS back when I built my first Pentium 166 MMX system, that board was awesome and never gave me problems. The only other company I've known to build such solid, reliable motherboards is Intel.

See problem below.

PROBLEM SUMMARY:

1. Board switches off with new Prescott 3.2 due (i think) to cheap powerpack. System works fine with old P4 2.4 Northwood. In the process of purchasing new quality PSU. No evidence the board is to blame.

2. Slow-boot with 1017 bios.

Bought my new setup 2 weeks ago. Here's the basics:

Asus P4C800-E Deluxe
P4 3.2Ghz 800, 512Cache (not Prescott)
2x512MB Corsair Twinx 3200XL RAM
2x160GB Maxtor SATA Hard Drives 8MB 7200 - RAID Stripe
Asus/ATI AX800 XT PE 256MB Graphics Card
Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum Ex Sound Card
Thermaltake Pure Silentpower 480W PSU
NEC 3500 DVD-RW

No real problems during setup. Flashed the latest BIOS onto the motherboard before doing anything else (maybe that's why I had no problems) and then set up the RAID, downloaded the RAID drivers off the net (using another computer!) and renamed them appropriately and put them on a floppy, installed XP SP2 no problems. Just a couple of boot up issues which aren't really a problem. I've put in another post for that issue anyway.

Nearly Flawless P4C800-E Deluxe Experience

Thanks to the members of this forum, I've had a nearly flawless working Asus P4C800-E Deluxe install. Only been running a few days now but have not had any real problems.

Keyboard: MS Multimedia
Mouse: Logitech (did initial install with PS/2 mouse)
Network: Onboard LAN
Other:

HARDWARE Connections:

Using In-Win CR-I530 10-in-1 Memeory card 3.5 internal reader using USB and IEEE 1394 headers on MB. Worked flawless.

BIOS Setup:
Version. 1016
Mostly defaults...disabled Legacy USB, Plug & Play. Enabled ACPI 2.0 Support, ACPI APIC Support, Hi-speed USB. Set Promise Raid to IDE.

SOFTWARE Setup:
All HDD formated NTFS, full partitions. Win XP Professional SP2

PURPOSE:
Internet and Games! Bring it Half-Life 2!!!

COMMENTS:
With Memory set to auto, only shows my ram timing as 2.5-3-8-8. Corsair says it should run at 2-3-3-6...haven't messed with it yet.

I browsed this forum and took much advice from the posts. Started with 1 HD and 1 DVD for fresh install on a newly formatted drive. Installed Intel Chipset driver immediately after OS install and began to install one device at a time till I had my full working system.

Have not installed my ATI WinTV yet. Not really a priority for me. I saw one poster had a problem with WinTV and Hyper Threading...I'd rather have the HT but I'll try it later this weekend anyway.

PROBLEM SUMMARY:
Not really any except for the memory timing mentioned above which I have tried to change yet.

Many thanks to all who support this forum!!!

I'm computered out....off to the beach for some bodyboarding!! :bgrin:

SOFTWARE Setup:

NTFS XP partitioned into 4 drives master, 2 drives slave.
XP Home system. Removed SP2 as a PITA. System again runs smoothly without all the internet explorer failures and such.

PURPOSE:
What you intend to use this PC for. Advanced video editing & photo work

COMMENTS:
Any observations, positive or negative.
Very satisfied. The 4 gig of ram doesn't show as 4 gig in the ram boot log, but as 3.2 or so gig. The boot doesn't show the amount used in the theoretical second processor created with hyper-threading. XP home while it won't use a second processor, sees the hyper-threaded mode of the northward CPU as a second processor and uses it as such.

PROBLEM SUMMARY:
1. None. Stuck it together and it ran. Stuck in the old drive from the other machine already loaded with XP, most software ran right off. Some fancy stuff had to be tweaked a bit, Nero and InCD for instance had to be reinstalled.

Built my PC around a P4C800-e Deluxe about three weeks ago and everything works fine. Had a bit of a time with the Promise controller driver, but that's working now, too. Tried overclocking at 10% and ran perfectly, with about a 1ºC increase in temp.

Motherboard: Asus P4C800-E Deluxe, PCB rev 2.00.
CPU: P4 3.2c GHz 800FSB retail.
Cooler: Intel stock.
Memory: 1GB: 2x512MB Crucial Value Select PC3200.
Video: ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro, 128MB.
Case: Lian-Li PC-60; silver, 4 Silenx fans.
Power supply: Thermaltake Silent Purepower 480w.
CD Writer: Teac CD-W540E.
DVD Writer: TDK DVDRW420N.
Floppy: Sony 3.5".
HDD 1 & 2: 120GB Hitachi Deskstar, 7200 rpm, 8MB, SATA, in RAID 1.
HDD 3: 80GB Western Digital, ATA133, 7200 rpm, 8MB, PATA.

Keyboard: PS/2.
Mouse: Logitech MX-1000.
Network: Cable modem to SMC SMC7008ABR 8-port router to DWL-900AP+ wireless access point to DWL-800AP+ repeater.
Other: Soyo Media Card reader, Crystalfontz 632 LCD display, ViewSonic G90fb 19" CRT, Monsoon speakers with subwoofer.

Pri RAID: Western Digital 80GB in IDE mode.

BIOS Version: 1016

SOFTWARE Setup:
Windows XP Professional SP2, all critical Microsoft Updates.

PURPOSE:
Web surfing, gaming, and, believe it or not, I actually use it for work (shame on me).

COMMENTS:
The system went together very well. There were no hardware or software issues, and the machine is very fast. The only problem I encountered was when I added the additional 80GB drive to the Primary RAID connector using the Promise controller. I had a difficult time loading the driver. Once loaded, it ran well. This board has been completely stable -- literally crash free -- for three weeks while running both business apps and games (i.e., Call of Duty, Battlefield Vietnam, Doom 3). I would not hesitate to build additional PC's using this board.

COMMENTS:
The Vantec Stealth is the quietest PSU I have ever used. Also, the voltages are consistently above its rating.

PROBLEM SUMMARY:
Starting with the first installation of Windows XP, I began getting random BSOD stop errors, most of which pointed to an "unknown driver problem". The errors included all the usuals, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, BAD_POOL_CALLER, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, NTFS.sys error, some didn't even have a name. Following "numerous" clean installations of Windows XP, as well as replacing the PSU, video card, etc., and several adjustments to BIOS, I finally broke down and RMA'ed the bundled board to my retailer. They ended up replacing both memory modules.

PROBLEM SOLUTION: The original dimms (two Kingston ValueRam KVR400X64C3A/512 modules) were built with "Vitelic" brand chips. In single channel mode they worked great. But for some reason these chips would not work in DDR mode with the ASUS board. The retailer replaced both dimms with two similar Kingston ValueRam KVR400X64C3A/512 modules that were built with "Elpida" brand chips. DDR mode works great and I have not had any problems or crashes since the dimms were replaced. ;)
