    90 Day warranties on EVGA products scare me. Some nice deals though.

    some very tempting stock there, seems about the same risk as just buying second hand in the buy/sell/trade forums

    i would consider it less of a risk buying B-stock because EVGA atleast allows you to RMA them and a lot of people in the b/s/t don't allow any returns(i am one of them but have yet to have anyone get something that was DOA or fail and if so no one has said anything)

    I'm almost willing to say that most people will test there hardware better then EVGA does before they sell it. If a big company like EVGA loses a few customers they won't care. If a seller loses a few customers then that could be a problem.
    my point is it is easier for a seller in the b/s/t to get a bad rep and people not want to buy from them then it is for EVGA

    Very interesting points, the average seller has a lot to loose from a bad sale, EVGA don't really.

    I guess it's a trade up then between the ability to RMA, and detailed history/testing of the products.

    glad that you see my point :)
    I have no problem buying B-stock or refurbished as long as there is some kind of replacement/refund plan. I also have no problems buying from the "average seller" if they have a good rep.

    Hope i helped in some way :toast:

    Ive got an e2140 coming in that would be great to pair with that 750i, just don't think I will have the money for the rest of the rig for a little while. Decisions decisions.

    My B-Stock X58 SLI came with came with one. That and a driver disc seems standard. Some people got SLI bridges though.

    Well I wouldn't go that far. Especially considering I got it for $90 after MIR. I didn't have any issues or glaring disappointments with it; 200x20 for 4Ghz with my i5 760 no prob. I just decided I wanted an SLI board and better phases for future endeavors.

    Besides what you mentioned, I also hate the fact it doesn't use 100% Solid Caps. Electrolytic caps on a motherboard screams low end to me :)

    my old gigabyte board uses electrolytic caps and it has outlived a few boards that use solid caps also it still overclocks like a champ.

    Solid certainly will never hurt but electrolytic doesn't automatically mean relatively poor clocks and/or lifespan.

    What do you think LE stands for?:roll:

    In reality though most of the important caps are solid, it is only some of the smaller less important ones that aren't. The entire CPU area is all solid caps. The LE really isn't a bad board for the money, and usually is a very decent overclocker.
