P8Z68 Deluxe - motherboard reset pins pre-shorted?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi I just built my Z68 rig over the weekend, but one thing I couldn't quite understand is that the chassis connector pins at the edge of the motherboard had the 2 reset pins shorted by what looks to be left-over solder.

Has anyone else with a P8Z68 noticed such silliness? The end result is that I can't connect the ASUS-provided q-connector and have to use the individual chassis pins straight to mobo and leave out the reset connector - which means I can't do a hard reset from my chassis reset button. The on-mobo reset button works just fine though.

Any clues?

Sounds like a manufacturing defect that hasent been picked up, I would e-mail asus about it right away with a picture of it so that they have it logged.

Thanks! That's what I figured. A pity I noticed this when I was almost complete with all the connections....I've already reached out to ASUS and awaiting a reply.
