Tough break ^^

Wasn't there news about EVGA losing a big part of their motherboard team a couple of months ago?

I still think EVGA are having problems, and you are just seeing the start of people jumping ship.

Tough break? Why would you want people who come up with the most terrible bios layouts in the world of computing?

There could be a few reasons for this. Maybe having their (EVGA) asses handed to them on every board for board with Asus has made them rethink things a little?

Mind you, this was exactly the same death throes that came from BFG. Stopped making PCs, stopping making boards, stopped making PSUs.. Year later they stopped making anything.

EVGA's problem is that they have not been able to pull the wool over the eyes of the Europeans. They have done a bloody great job of it in the USA but it's only people who really want to be different here in England that buy EVGA. Their customer service here sucks (because there isn't any) and there is no one you can turn to if you have a problem. At all.

Now in Germany? Oh they have made sure to take good care of their German users. German customer support numbers everything. Yet they sell their stuff here and we get no support whatsoever.

Which would all be fine if their stuff wasn't such poo.

There's a reason you never knew. They were absolutely and utterly atrocious. Like, the absolute worst boards ever made.

I got a Pure Crossfire recently. Took it out of the box, turned it over.. VRM ramsinks fell off. Look under the bottom covered in flux wash.

As if looks were not bad enough? Well, all over the box it said supports Phenom X4 CPU and Phenom FX. Yet my 9950 went in and it was as dead as a dodo. Sent it back and Scan screwed me out of £15 as apparently there was nothing wrong with it

If that's why those EVGA dudes have gone over there then Sapphire's line up will be complete.

Crap boards, crap quality crap looks and crap bioses.

Still, I suppose that Sapphire can be the litter box and keep all of the crap in one place..

As you probably guessed I am not a big fan of Sapphire or EVGA. I don't like companies that make GPUs only (rebrands)and then get all clever and think they can produce a good motherboard. They can't, and it shows.
