ASUS has been on a roll with their RoG line of motherboards. Their third installment, Commando, looks to impress enthusiasts with the help of Intels P965 chipset. How does this board stack up against others, and is it worthy of the Republic of Gamers name?

This is something that should have been included in the review.
With the February 7th BIOS update (version 0803), the Commando can now operate with CPUs using the 1333 FSB.

Problem board for me (CPU INIT)
With the same set up my board did the same thing, cpu init but nothing else. 2 boards showing the same problem.
Could it be the 500 watt power supply that's preventing it from starting up? Don't know, going to find out this afternoon with purchase of a 1000 watt Thermaltek psu.
What makes me nervous is, Asus never answers my emails for help (vip member pfft), and it seems many many many others have suffered this. Some with no resolve. It also seems they're asked Asus for help and never got any.
What are your thoughts on this?
