    MTBF of Z77 Mobos


      Perusing the tech specs for the various Z77 Intel motherboards (2.7 Reliability), I have noted that the "55", which has most of the features I desire, has a MTBF of only about 20,000 hours (less than three years of 24/7 operation) which is considerably less than the MTBF of the other Z77 Mobos.  Questions to intel tech support and to ask.quality have gone unanswered.


      This seems to be a serious disincentive to purchase this board.  Does anyone have any more knowledge about this.
