I would let them know that you find it unacceptable. If they don't come around, file a claim as misrepresentation of product.

I would tell them that they will pay for shipping back and refund 100% or the next call will be to your credit card company refuting the charge. Be nice, save the email communications, take pics and file a claim on Amazon.

So I am overclocking my 2500k on my Gene-Z. I have two PLL settings. One where I can enable/disable something to do with PLL and another that has to do with PLL voltage. What is each one and how can they effect my overclock?

Yep, this is what I sent them last night

My Additional comments are as follows :
"First, the board was covered in animal hair. I was able to get by with that. Next I notice that there are about 4 bent pins where the CPU goes, completely unacceptable. Last but not least it also turns out that 2 of RAM slots are also dead.

The board was sold as "Refurbished". This is hardly the case. It should have been sold as "Used" in poor condition. ".

I was able to place an order this afternoon. Thanks for all the helpful info LA_KINGS_FAN - you'd be surprised how on the mark you were about the "in stock" timing! For anyone else interested, still in stock a few moments ago, too...

Have you tried asking over on the AsusROG forums ? they have Asus employees / experts that might answer since I guess we don't know how to help right at this moment

Since it WAS working fine, I'd venture to guess it's some setting that got messed up and can be fixed, but I'm not sure how to advise beyond that.

Congratuations, sort of, I think this is a new one for this thread (and I have read most, if not all posts here).

I had a brief problem with my wireless keyboard and mouse that I resolved by connected an old PS/2 set for one boot cycle, then everything worked great. You might try it before starting the RMA process. Let us know if it works...

no thoughts this anyone? cuz it was workin fine over the weekend, then it just started happenin when i was swapping out my vid cards
LA_KINGS_FAN, I still want a report on the unlock attempt! (good luck with that, too) Everything I've read makes it sound too easy!
