    A few days of testing, connecting and disconnecting USB front panels and running Prime95 stress testing to try and see what might be causing the lockups. Last night's run resulted in a lockup with one front panel that I had purchased from a vendor connected to the motherboard's first USB2 header.

    So removing that and rerunning made me think I had fund the culpret, until...

    Later today I was running a synchronization program to get all data copied off my hard drive to an NAS drive on my network. I walked away for an hour or two and came back to a black screen asking me to insert bootable media! Not good. A reset resulted in no detection of any SATA drives (only one attached right now and it's the new one I purchased when this problem reared its ugly head.)

    So, power off for an hour and try again, and everything boots up ok! I rebooted into the bios and turned off all USB3 functions, leaving only USB2 for the new keyboard (also purchased when this problem came up) and ps2 for the trackball.

    Once again, I started the sync program (about 5pm EST) and it was going nicely until now (8:45 EST) when again I got the black screen and no drive detected.

    At this point I have to feel that it's the motherboard causing the problems. Last night I ordered an Asus Z68 board which I'm going to transfer to this case along with the cpu and cooler and hopefully all will be fine (leaving only the cpu and power supply as potential problems if not the motherboard.) I have a bench computer that I use for peripheral testing, and I'll mount the Asrock on that to continue stress testing with another chip. If their support EVER contacts me, at least I'll give an RMA a shot to try and recover my investment.

    Follow-up: I've replaced the Fatality z68 (appropriate name, I guess) with an Asus P8Z68V. I hated to spend the additional money, but if Asrock ever gets around to contacting me perhaps I'll get a replacement. At any rate, the computer is back in the original configuration in the original case with the original power supply, chip, cooling, memory, video card, USB devices, etc., etc. Works great! So that leaves the motherboard!

    I actually purchased another chip (Core i5 this time) to put in the replacement board (should they actually make contact and authorize a return,) so I'll build a second computer and hope that I just have an electronics failure and not a design failure. It's discouraging to read the recent posts with similar problems. I have to assume that for those of us that find our way here, we're just a few with problems and this is not indicative of a bad design, but I wonder.

    Does Asrock monitor this forum? One wonders. If so, it would be nice to PM me and let me know.
