ASUS RIVE RMA Satisfied Customer Story & mobo Setup Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
About a month ago my computer just kept powering down. (Rig noted in my sig)

I thought it was the PSU as it was old but got a new one and it wasn't the PSU.

So I RMAed the mobo with ASUS....it arrived at ASUS on june 10 and is back home today on june 27. (not nearly as bad as I thought it would have been.), though return shipping was like a week and included in the time above ...

That said, the RAM email notice says "part repaired" but nothing more. So I decided to get on the chat with Asus. And off course that is all they could tell based on the logs/notes.

As per ASUS's shipping request, I sent my mobo out "just the mobo" with the pin cover wrapped in bubble tape (no box or extras).

Today, when I opened the box from Fed Ex there was a "NEW" mobo with all the extra's cables etc... (or so It seems)

It even has the plastic over the heat syncs and fans etc... and even :smelled "new (for those who know what I am talking about) thumb.gif

And it is not my old mobo as it has a different S/N.

I'm pretty happy considering the horror stories I've hear about ASUS returns. (Plus I had my old i920 rig and just fired up a 7970 in the interim...)

My questions are:
A>Thoughts on this being a New mobo? or referb (with "New Mobo" smell sprayed on)
B> I had hoped to just take my current SSD with O/S and plug it back into the mobo. Now that it is a new mobo, thoughts doing this? (I'd rather not clean install as I still have things on the SSD) risky or give it a go?

I haven't set things up clearly so it may still be a nightmare to be... but figured I'd spread some happiness... biggrin.gif

quick bump ..

curious about setting a different RIVE board with the same SSD and OS from a borked older mobo?

Can I plug and play this or do I need to reformat OS/drive?

thanks

Should be P&P..

Regarding the newness, if it came from Cali, likely new, from Jeffersonville, refurb.
