I don't know about you, but Asus's website is slower that any other website i have ever visited on dialup and I am on cable. I have tried visiting it on many computers and connections. It makes getting bios and drivers a freakin nightmare. :evil:

I have the same issue. Pretty much all motherboard manufacturer's sites I've been to are slow like this.

They need to feed the hamsters more!

the asus site is particularly bad. for a tech company you would think they would invest in some servers? also many times the US site is down. in those cases i just use the British version, it actually seems a bit faster too (but not much)

Thanks for the tip.
What really pissed me off is that they are relocating servers in for downloads on the US site. I tried to download from the US download server but the link was broken. I tried to download a bunch of different things from the US servers and nothing worked. When I clicked on the China server I got to download motherboard and chipset drivers at 3-4 kps on cable. They are one of the most badassiest motherboard makers but they can't get some good servers? I just don't get it. I wonder if there is a corperate website that has drivers and such that consumers aren't supposed to know about that is faster. :roll:

Asus' website has sucked for years and years.
I remember trying to get to the site when I had my old A7N8X (I think that was nvidia 2 chipset) and it sucked back then, and it still sucks now.

At least all the links aren't broken now. Five years ago you couldn't download shit off their site, every link would be dead.
