I'm going to say bad luck, too. The V Pro would be on my list of mainboards to get.
I've been looking at Z68 mobos lately and reading a lot of user reviews, and this board is one of the better ones from what I've seen. No brand is completely without problems, even ASUS.
I agree with that too. I'd even go as far as to say there is no one perfect Z68 board. Even the best have something I can be annoyed by.
