I just received my motherboard back from newegg. Here's the picture of the CPU socket AFTER getting it back from them. I'm going to have to say that wasn't there before I shipped it to them (as seen in the first picture.)
They have agreed to refund my money once I ship this back to them since I'm a good customer and haven't had any problems before as a "ONE TIME COURTESY"
Unfortunately, I bought the same motherboard after shipping that back to them for a refund (since they don't cross ship) and it also came to me dead. I will be sending that one back to them on Thursday and I will be sure to include a note along with a picture of the socket and a link to a youtube video of me glaring at them and telling them they better give me my money back with no BS this time >=O (Okay, maybe not the video, lol.)
