1 out of 5 eggs Received wrong motherboard 07/18/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-880GM-D2H (REV. 3.1) AM3+ AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The motherboard looked nice and it fit well in my case. RMA process went fine, just unhappy.

Cons: I ordered this product and received the GIGABYTE GA-880GM-D2H (REV 1.4) even though my order form had REV 3.1 listed on it. Even the packing slip said 3.1. The only way I noticed that it was the wrong motherboard was that after installation my computer would not turn on. After investigating I found that this was the wrong motherboard by looking at the serial number sticker and also comparing the two on the Gigabyte website. The reason it wasn't working is because Rev 1.4 doesn't not support AM3+ processors, which I had (AMD FX4100). I sent it back for a replacement of the correct MoBo, and I my RMA ended up as a refund (which was great, the whole RMA process was just fine) so now I'm back to square one.

Other Thoughts: I was really hoping to have my computer built at least a week after the 4th of July, but now it's the 18th and I have no computer and have to re-research motherboards that are compatible with my setup. I don't feel comfortable ordering the same motherboard (i think it's backordered as well) just because i don't want this mistake happening again.
