Wolodymyrtook a while to get the rma processed (website didn't take my first 2 rma form submissions, tech support came through). EVGA got the board today and already have a return label created. Will get it hopefully next week.
WolodymyrOk, so an update:Got the board back from RMA land. Bench tested everything, all 8 dimm slots populated in BIOS. Memtest reports spd data correctly, except for manufacturer. Board came with BIOS ver. 1.24 for 1&2 so I updated BIOS 2 to 1.28. Surprise, slot 1 reports spd unavailable in memtest, and does not like all 8 dimms populated at 3466 only at 2133. Removed 4 dimms for 32GB total and all is good. What is the significant difference between ver. 1.24 and 1.28? Also ver. 1.26 didn't like 3466, but ran with no errors at 3600?!?
