What do you do when you receive a motherboard in this condition? Was putting together a 4670k build for a friend and had 5 bent pins on the socket. We filed an RMA didn't want to take the chance of trying to bend them back and cause further damage.

With most companies and I have seen it before. My mate opened his brand new ASRock z77 extreme 6 last year to find that the pins were bent. The retailer would do nothing. Said it voided its warranty and no RMA. So he took it up with the manufacturer directly and stated his case that it was effectively Dead on Arrival. Showed all the components in the box were yet to be opened.

And by luck he got a new one. However I told him not to get it and I was right. Had a problem like mine did with 5 beeps on boot posting a2 with the inbuilt CPU graphics not working. He is most pissed off. Glad I got rid of mine for that board but have checked the pins and they were all fine.
