Asus Inquiry couldn't do much about it except suggest a few things to test which I already did, after that they told me to RMA it at the point of purchase.
Hi. My hardware is the same as yours (processor, mobo and RAM). I bought it one year ago and have been suffering exactly that symptoms. I've tried absolutely everything and I'm still getting random freezes, crashes and BSOD. Could you tell me if you solved your problem and how?. I'm wondering if I must RMA either my P6T SE, my i7 920 or my OCZ Platinum XTC.
I've applied the following fixes. Although the crashes still occur for me, some may be of use to you.
- install bios 1202, clear CMOS
- install bios 1307, clear CMOS
- install intel storage matrix 8.8 because 8.9 has some known stability issues
- update firmware SSD's
- memtest RAM (ok)
- manually install latest drivers for chipset, LAN, sound, graphics, usb and other peripherals
- disabled windows quicklaunch (may have worked for some people)
- disabled media sharing (may have worked for some people)
- use a different antivirus program (seemed to work for several people)
- applied some of the fixes mentioned in this thread for logitech USB2 peripherals
- extra stable BIOS settings (not overclocked)
for cpu: 1,25 V
for QPI: 1,35 V
for RAM: loose timings, back-to-back 12, 1,65 volt
Doublechecked to make sure there was no heat problem on CPU, RAM, NB, SB (and there definitely wasn't in my case)
I'm probably forgetting to mention a few fixes I also tried, as I've been trying to get this piece of plastic to run smoothly for more than 7 months now.
I can only conclude that the problems with this board are manifold, people have problems with it all over the web. Often they post something they say works for them, but often they post a few days later that their problem isn't fixed after all. RMA's seem to work, so I'm going to give it a shot. I'll post back.
