Ok, as I've said already, I got my board earlier last week. I've just been too busy acquiring a new vehicle to post board pictures. Also, I just got the last of my parts (CPU, H60) yesterday anyways.
I've also been debating how to handle my 'situation'. The Gene-z I received very obviously had somebody digging through the box. There's a tear on the lid hinge, the little tab the holds the box closed wasn't inside the place it goes when it's closed (I don't know what to call it...), the plastic lid inside had been taken out and not put back properly, and there was some crumpled box where it looks like they tried to put the plastic lid back, bent the box a bit, then gave up. Oh yes, and 3 of the 4 RAM clips were open, right out of the box.
I'm going to link to some pictures of what I found for those who are curious. I didn't resize them because I don't give a **** Be warned, the pics are roughly 2MB each.
Here is a link to my photobucket account with the aforementioned pictures. I'm curious what you guys think.
I have not actually installed and tested the board yet, so I really don't know if there'll be any problems. I imagine I will do that before I get in Newegg's face about it, although I did already file a ticket informing them of the damages and saying I'd let them know whether it worked or not. They haven't replied yet.
Also, please add me to the owners list
AFAIK none of them are sealed or anything.
