Hello, I just finished my build, and have a couple problems. The one that is the most irritating is that my internet connection keeps going bad. Usually when I have multiple tabs opened in firefox, but not always. On a few other occasions the computer itself has locked up, to where I have had to restart it with the case switch. I replaced the cable modem and tweaked the ram somewhat, that may of helped but I am not positive. Lastly my cpu is running at 36 degrees according to AMD Overdrive utility but 45 using the Asus utility. I would appreciate any comments anyone has. Thanks.

Are you using a wired internet connection? Can you verify that the connection is working by using another computer or internet-enabled device? You can always try contacting Newegg or Asus and getting an RMA for the motherboard. I've had similar problems with Asus motherboards where things would lock up, it took a replacement board to fix it.

I kind of thought that might be the solution. Just hate to take everything apart again. What is involved with having to rma the board with newegg?

How many days has it been since you received the motherboard? Newegg has a 30-day replacement policy, contact them for a replacement. If it falls outside the 30-day period, you have to go though Asus support.

It's been less than 2 weeks. I'll contact them today. Thanks for your input.
