That's what I was thinking, I just may have thought there may have been a difference in Murlocke's situation since it happened in shipping and it's a brand new board with the warranty still in full effect.
Well, if this is true for your situation Murlocke, you have a few routes:
1. Pay $120 or whatever the price is to Asus and have them repair it. Once you get it back from repair, you sell it.
2. Attempt to fix the pins yourself and then sell it.
Option 1 is fail free, you just lose money and make some back.
Option 2 is slightly risky because there's always the "what if" chance, but you lose no money.
