I understand the bad luck cycle, I just dont have any other machines right now and I just had to sit for a week to wait for these parts with no PC. I don't know if I can sit for another 2 weeks if I RMA the board.

The voltage reading is off, but the it operates fine. My goal was 4.5GHz and under 75C and I have that. So I don't know if it's worth returning and not having a computer for 2 weeks.

Oh that tom's hardware link doesn't have the P8Z77-V on it. It has it's bastard step-child the LK or LX or whatever.

it still clocks better than the Gigabyte..

I'll try, I did an advance RMA a little less than 2 weeks ago on a FX-8320. Basically just trying to get a better chip. I will have to call and try it, my phone just broke and I'm waiting on a replacement. I can probably borrow a co-workers phone and do it during lunch on Monday.

I wrote them a really nice letter for how they handled my FX-8320 RMA. The lady gave me next day shipping on the replacement and then sent me a prepaid shipping label for my return item. After writing that letter, a different employee responded and said they appreciated my kind words and she sent me a Newegg.com beanie, lol.

Newegg was all set to do advanced RMA but then I mentioned that I had cut off the UPC from the box to claim my rebate. They said I would have to RMA with ASUS because if they can't scan it they can't take it back.

I'm not sure if ASUS will do an advanced RMA but I will call and ask.
