I know it's not a motherboard company, but to give you an example, I had a Gemini CDMP 6000 (it's a cdj/all in one mixer). I went through four, count it, four units before I found one (which I just got three days ago) that has not had issues yet.

I demanded my money back and they told me time and time again even after speaking with the supervisor that they CANNOT refund me, they can only constantly keep sending me new units until one of them works.
Depends where you bought it from.

Bought my mobo from eBuyer UK, they're usually cool with it, other, less reasonable companies suck as Overclockers.co.uk will tell you to 'funk off' if you ask for a refund. Happened to me. He didn't say funk, but if you rotate that n counterclockwise...

Do your best to get a refund then if you really don't want the board.

You having a corrupted bios is Gigabytes fault? just reflash it!
I would like to see proof of "countless issues"

I read this post and still cant figure out why you disassembled the entire rig due to "forgetting" fan cables. What was the issue? The proc would have shut down had it overheated, but I am not seeing what prompted the rapid response to tear it down and now all of the suddent you have bent pins. My guess is these pins happened when you disassembled .... so its not really Gigabytes fault to "fix" your board free of charge. No company is going to fix issues caused by the end user for free.


I would attempt to straighten the pins... but do this carefully and with anything metal if its bent back and forth it will break off. Then I would use this whole experience as a learning step in being more careful with delicate electronics.

So the mobo was ACTUALLY WORKING WITH THESE BENT PINS???? i've never seen a mobo with bent pins that actually posts. Anyway, fixing the bent pins "if you can't RMA" is very possible. I did it once with a magnifier and a bright light. they were like 7-9 pins. worked like a charm after doing it. LGA 775 btw.

Well, you didn't read it. As I said I was doing my routine cleaning run, usually do it when I feel like it but I try to do it every 6 months. Forgetting fan cables on a watercooling, well, H70 setup is quite stupid, the pump nor the fans were plugged into the machine meaning, no cooling at all essentially.

I know how to flash it, infact there's a tutorial in my sig which teaches you how to fix the DPC issues related to the corrupted BIOS which is on all V2 UD3R boards as standard.

So obviously I would check for burn marks, it would be idiotic not to.

I don't need to be told how to be delicate with electronics, I think you'll find Gigabyte is at fault here. Take your fanboyism, get it out of here and close the door on your way out. Don't need your biased unhelpful comments here at all.

Thanks.

Yeah sorry was a bit panicy, if anyone wants a better pic I have stripped the mobo from the rig now's the time to ask. I'm phoning eBuyer about RMA, and possibly trading the board with them for something of equal value, paid £150 for it so hoping to get something for at least £100+, can probs get a decent Asus board for that. If not, I'm going to persue a full refund and if all fails I'll just sell the RMA'd board on fleaBay.

Yes, the pc booted and infact for a long period there was nothing wrong with it, over time I obtained this error which made the PC only boot on the third time, it would say 'Detecting DRAM size' on a black screen in white text (similar to flashing _ freezes, but it would reboot and do it again) and just crash, there's very very few topics on it, but from what I gained from reading topics to related problems, the error is in fact caused by bad RAM installation or screws missing from the mobo, my RAM was fine. No issues with it once I got into the PC. I did infact not have all screws in the motherboard, only one on each corner and one in the middle (5), there was a total of 7 (possibly 8) holes and I didn't put all the screws in when I built it because they were a tad inaccessible, one obstructed my GPU from being installed. I don't see how that could have caused the problem. So I open up the PC, check the CPU for burn marks, check the mobo for bent pins and blam.
