It realy just all depends --if you get the board and enough of the pakageing to do what you need to do-and the board works fine-you got a killer deal-its always a chance on an open box item-but you can return it with in 30 days-plus you still get full warrenty from asus--i just ordered a chv open box will have it tuesday-again crossing my fingers-but i only paid $169.99. They do test them to a point to make sure basics are working.

Not realy-they could just want to get rid of the returns-and remember-if a box got damaged and something inside was hurt-they also sell them as open box at times too, or you could get lucky and get the box and everything in it-like i said-you have 30 days to test it out and the asus full warrenty, but yes there is always a chance its screwed-but you can get that with an unopened box also-plus the asus crosshair iv and v are not for everyone-it is also a reason they get some back-theres a lot more too them than a standard mobo.

oh and p.s-remember this some could have just returned the crosshair iv just becuz the crosshair v came out-lol. But choice is all yours bud.

Of course it's not sealed. If it was new I would sell it on eBay for 220

Comes with all the manuals and stuff, box, and if it doesn't work I'll gladly pay for a label so you can ship it back.

I can't prove it works as all my systems are disassembled.
As I said, I guarantee it or I will refund/pay to have it shipped back.
