Asrock Extreme4 Z77 CPU Pins are screwed - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Welcome to OCN where getting an answer sometimes includes a few ignorant replies. Most have answered your question already, retailers won't rma a board with bent/missing pins due to the usual user error involved. Contact the retailer and see what you can do, most likely though you will have to cough up the cash for another board.

That's a pretty messed up socket you have there... pins are bent and there's one missing.

Try to return it but like others have said, they're going to blame you so be prepared to purchase a new MOBO. I'd suggest a different retailer if you actually received the board in that condition.

You built it in anyway "after" you saw it, a smart person wouldn't do that.
The solution is: Buy a new board, they won't replace this for you.
You can call it ignorant, I don't care, and the shop also doesn't care. They will blame you, and you are likely to blame.

Money isn't really an problem to get an new mobo.
I should at least try returning it than Ill see what happens.
And yes I am prepared to get an answer like that I destroyed it and that they wont give another one.

But we will see, any other suggestions for an mobo than the Asrock ?
It will be made for gaming and programming, gaming mostly.
The other components are in my signature that I will use.

The Asrock Extreme4 is a pretty good board for $120 IMO - but what is your price range?

These are solid boards within a similar price range - but prices may vary in the Netherlands from what I have here in the US.

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77
ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77

Eventually, if the situation is that bad and if Seller/AsRock isn't going to believe you although possible, think of replacing just the socket.
You can find it online but to replace it you will need somebody with reballing experience and of course with the adequate tools.

I did go today to the shop personally with the mobo.
And explained everything.

Now I managed to get the new same motherboard , cause more people ordered the same mobo with the same problems in the same week.
So the serie what Is delivered to the shop isn't good and they removed it from the shop and added new series.

I am glad it was sorted out.

If it was not sorted out I was planning to buy an MSI Z77A-G45 GAMING mobo.
But it didnt come that far gladly.

Btw everything is working fine now, first I am gonna take an rest with all the commotions.
And after an week of 2 I will be back here trying to get an stable overclock to 4,5Ghz.
