Rose5685: Thank you very much for contacting the Intel® Processors communities. We will do our best to provide the information you are looking for.
In regard to your inquiry, there are no known issues reported for this processor, it very stable and reliable, also there are no reports of ASUS boards affecting this unit. Even though the processor is an excellent processor, there are some isolated cases where the unit might be defective that is why Intel provides 3 years of warranty on them.
In reference to troubleshoot steps to try, we normally recommend to test the PC with the very basic configuration, meaning with just the power supply, board, processor one memory stick, and in this case without the video card, to rule out a possible problem with one of the memory sticks or with the video card itself. Additionally, once you get the other processor you can always test it on both boards to confirm if the issue persists.
If you are interested in claiming the warranty, besides contacting Newegg you can also get in contact directly with Intel for that purpose:
