If you think nVidia's QA actually saw such a thing and did not report it, then how did the hardware reviewers miss it? Never saw a single mention of it in a review until this week when the issue has been widely discussed.
I read plenty of reviews from reputable sites before I ordered my Asus P4S8X motherboard. They were all pretty much glowing and I bought it in part based on the reviews I read, and there were several. That was an absolute disaster, and I was *far* from the only person who got a junk motherboard.

Never again will I trust in reviews. For me, I check abxzone first and read the threads. Only way to find the truth that I've found so far...
