x58 w/ bent pins! - Page 8

post #71 of 78
Don't know if it will do any good but report them to the better business bureau.
http://www.bbb.org/

That makes no sense in any way. If you have the receipt then they have to let you return it. Assuming it is with the 90days.

I wouldn't keep a damaged motherboard since day 1.

Go back to the store and claim a replacement, also file a complaint about the store with the BBB.

You should not accept in any way a damaged motherboard for the price of a new one, do the right thing and claim a new one.

Hello everyone! So I took everyones advice and returned the item, it was very hard... had to drive to two different locations, but finally I got one of them to return my mb with one that was returned. I examined this one very closely and everything checks out, I put all of my old oc specs back up and updated the bios, runs great in prime95 so far.

Cheers!

Do you guys have any idea how many people probably come into Fry's every day with mobos, pins bent all to hell, trying to get their money back? I was at a CompUSA once and some idiot was trying to do a return claiming the mobo was defective. Turned out he had tried to install the cpu UPSIDE DOWN!

I'm certainly not saying that the OP did anything wrong, or that he didn't deserve a refund. I'm just saying that you can kind of understand the reluctance of store managers to just hand out money to any idiot that comes off the street claiming that their product was defective....
