Thread Starter 
I have bent pins back into place before and the boards have worked perfectly fine. 2 slightly bent pins isn't a deal breaker for me. Also I found out that it's a sticker not a scratch on the onboard sound chip. I can get a backplate on ebay for this board for only $7 and I have plenty of sata cords.

My only main concern is that if it turns on or not. If it was tested and lit up then I would def go for it but since it hasn't been tested it makes me a little uneasy...

I was looking for X58 boards earlier today for someone else looking to replace a damaged board rather than upgrade and they go for a premium now. I say if you have to spend more than $100 on a X58 board, it would be better to bite the bullet and upgrade. Keep an eye on the for sale section I see guys parting out X58 rigs all the time.

As a matter of fact there is a fourm member here on OCN that has a X58 board for sale. He goes by CTRLurself
