Had 4 total MB failures:

- 1 gigabyte board die (24/7 FTP fileserver use for roughly 10 years)
- 1 gigabyte board die because my watercooling loop leaked and shorted the thing out. It kept working with some faulty ram slots for another 3 years until it failed all together.
I'm running a 2600k and X58 based systems, both on the same mobo's from new, one fairly heavily overclocked. I've run Pentium 3 era servers in my garage in the most horrible conditions imaginable for PC hardware 24/7 for years without issue. The only mobo I ever had failing caps on was my old BE6-II and I fixed that myself, wish I still had that board.

A Z-97 and a Z-170. Not really much difference, to be honest, apart from a few newer USB ports...

Z...

2600k @4.5Ghz air cooled since day one, sitting on a z68x.

It has dropped 2x sticks of ram in the last month, so I'm thinking its time to move on to something newer.

2500k sitting at a mild 4Ghz under water. The MoBo may be on the way out, as I can't run my ram in dual-channel any more (won't POST if both sticks are in the slots for the same channel - or maybe I just need to tweak some settings.)

That said, next system may not be Intel. Holding off upgrading until AMD releases Threadripper. Best case scenario, I can afford a 10- or 12- core Threadripper, worst case scenario I get a beefy Ryzen 7.

Been cranking this puppy for years on my ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z mobo, still going strong!

Well I'm using this setup...

Code:
CPU	$400	Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.66GHz 12 MB		(BX80569Q9450)
MOBO	$255	ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX			(P5E)
GPU	$400	EVGA GeForce GTX 670 4GB FTW			(02G-P4-2678-KR)
		EVGA GTX 670 FTW Backplate			(M021-00-000015)
RAM	$160	OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB)		(OCZ2RPR800C44GK)
HSF	$090	Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme			(Ultra-120 Extreme)
		Scythe Blue LED 120mm + VR			(SY1225SL12VBL)
PSU	$195	Silverstone DA750 ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V 750W	(SST-DA750)
HDD		Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 32Mb 750GB		(ST3750330AS)
CASE	$205	CoolerMaster CM Stacker 810			(RC-810-SSN1)
The only thing I've replaced since 2008 May is the GPU...
