Other Thoughts: Ordered this motherboard to go with a new computer build, from the ground up. It and everything else came in, and sure enough the board didn't work - or maybe it was the Memory, or the CPU, or the PSU...We never found out.
EVGA support is why I give this board a second egg - the person I called the night of the build walked me through everything they could, tried to help, then suggested I send the CPU, PSU, Memory, and MB back since a 'no memory' error could be any of them.
Now I wish I would have went through EVGA to RMA the board instead of Newegg. It was (and is at the time of this posting) within it's 30 days, so I could get a full refund. Sent all the parts back on the 6th of August, got to Newegg RMA on the 12th, and just got 'approved for defect' on the 15th. Now the board is discontinued, out of stock, and of course that meant phone call to Newegg.
The first person I spoke to said I was going to have to wait 3-5 business days to see if the item came back in stock before they would refund the money so I can purchase another board. So that puts me not even getting ANYTHING done until the 20th of the month. Not satisfied I asked to speak to a supervisor, who told me they would expedite getting me refunded for the motherboard and get the rest back to me...
When? 3-5 business days I guess. I've been ordering through Newegg via parents and things for years, and for the first time I completely regret doing so and wish I had gone with another website. Moral of the story? RMA through EVGA, they take care of their customers.
Now I get to go find an Asus board (I suppose) to replace this...Ugn! Already dread their RMA if I need to use it.
