The M5A99X came in a plain box with ASUS Refurbished tape and a bag with just about all the accessories, and the board works. However, the bad news is that the middle white PCIe slot is broken and nothing is recognized in it, so I had to change my plans and throw my 550 Ti and GT 440 in this machine in top/bottom slots. Don't want to spend $15 shipping the damn thing back, especially when there aren't any left at Geeks anyway. Despite that, I hope it continues working for at least a year as I only paid $90 for it.
Those are great boards... got one in my main rig!
As far as condition, I think you can RMA direct to ASUS and get a brand new one if this is one is messed up... as far as I know the warranty by serial # back to date of manufacture???
