    Its not just that either, there are chemical residue spots all over the board from either a harsh abrasive or water impurities not sure, the board is also severely warped with board flex in that area and the IO back plane area is also severely bowed out so that whole upper corner of the board is wavy when you look at it dead on

    to be honest i've been having the most shit luck with big name vendors RMA services, there was a thread that i posted a while back about OCZ and them sending me a DOA and clearly "USED" and repacked drive, they agreed to pay return shipping and send me a new drive, a few months after use it died again and becuase it was in a raid 0 with the other drive i did loose a few things and a lot of curse words were spewed, but i literally threw the drive away and am never purchasing an OCZ product again. im just waiting for this second drive to fail because i know it is, and i am moving over to samsung SSD's instead

    Damn.. Sorry to hear about your experience with asus.. I had to rma my rampage iii extreme and it went pretty smooth and the board was mint. It's crazy that they let that board pass through qc like that.. Oh and I hear you about ocz.. I bought an agility ssd and it died on me 1 month later. I didn't even bother to rma it lol.. I bought a corsair and its still going strong.

    To be honest i've delt with asus RMA before and actually had a very present experience with them in the past but it might be partly because the product i sent in was a top teir motherboard (Rampage III Extreme) that's partly why i decided to go back to them for my M5G when i wanted to jump to the mainstream ship but with this recent disgrace of an RMA im on the fence right now with them, it could honestly go either way and i am willing to forgive and forget if they do a better job second time around

    I have some more pictures & captions posted here if any ones interested to see how this goes down, i will be posting updates and responses from asus just like the OCZ thread i made

    How interesting I have RMA'd probably about 10 boards with Asus and never had an issue. Call back ask for them to pay return shipping and to overnight a new board. It is pretty obvious its no fault of yours.

    Got a couple of slim 75mm fans to repair my 6950, some slim SATA cables, extensions and light blue sleeving. Had a few hours to kill and these are the results:
