Bent pins upon opening 02/06/2014
Haven't been able to experience any pros yet!
Purchased a couple months ago. Now that I have all my parts, I go to start my new build and it appears that in two areas within the CPU socket there is a bent pin or two.
$500 for a motherboard and you're hosed as soon as you open it just like buying a Processor. Soon as you open it you cant return it. I know newegg won't exchange it for a new one so I have to buy another one and hope it is ok and then try to get my current board repaired by the manufacturer and then sell it on that auction site to try to recoup as much of my loss as possible.
There HAS to be a better way to sell motherboards, CPUs and various other computer core components. Buying an item that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars and you have no idea about some tiny fragile pins inside and if there is any problem you are basically relegated into dealing the manufacturers. That's unacceptable in my book.
Here's a good idea... Take a picture close-up of the CPU socket pins and send it to customer with the invoice so when it gets to customer they can be assured it was flawless upon shipment. So any damage is probably due to customer ineptness.
I am sorry that your motherboard has bent CPU pins. I would highly recommend contacting Newegg to see what options are available in this case. If you need any assistance, please let me know through email; I am here to help. Your reference number for this case is 3428722.
