    ASUS CM6870-US-3AB Desktop PC

    Would love to buy this setup and run ubuntu 12.04 on it:

    Are there any known issues that anyone can see? Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    Bought one and tried 12.04.1 64bit desktop as well as 64bit server.

    It doesn't work.

    desktop: red pixels corrupt setup process and ultimately the setup dies (freezes) towards the last screen.

    server: fast red pixels also corrupt the console, install works till the end, but no way I'm trusting that.

    I also added an additional video card (this machine comes with the on-board video only). I get further along with no video corruption at all. However, I still get random hard freezes.

    But for the few minutes it works, it's amazingly fast (/ & swap on a 128GB SSD and /home on the factory HD).

    I'm eagerly waiting for a fix.

    Marking as "solved" runs fantastic with 12.10
