More about build
  1. why do you feel they won't RMA.?
    and besides the ASRock RMA program (which I just got through doing..), you should also have the Newegg RMA policy in effect because parts are so new.
    how recently is recently.?
  2. I just recieved it yesterday and Im getting ready to ship it out tomorrow. I had just read some reviews of people not getting there motherboards exchanged because of the same issue. Im probably just over reacting, just bummed that i gotta wait another week, I dont have much time to be able to tinker with my new build before I have to deploy. Just being impatient i guess.
  3. so are you just going to wait it out or are you still looking for another board.?
  4. Im going to wait it out, just want an idea for another motherboard just in case.
  5. what was the bad motherboard.?
    (make and model)

    and how much would be the spending limit.?
    planning on SLi in the future.?

    also I have started to stay away from ASRock boards, to me quality is slipping.
    weak VRM.
    ASUS is about to buy them anyways..
  6. asrock oc formula, yes on sli, as for the spending limit $150 and I would like it to be a decent board for overclocking. Thanks
  7. GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128544 it is $5 over your budget but this board is amazing
