It's up to them whether or not they send a new or used board during the RMA process. After I received my replacement I called Asus and had them look up the serial number to verify the board they sent me was new and had a 3 year warranty.

New would imply unopened in retail packaging. The board I received was in a white cardboard box.

You're certainly one of the lucky few then! thumb.gif

It took asus MONTHS just to secure stock and replace my burned out board and they replaced it with a broken refurb. I gave up with asus after the third RMA.

I was anticipating that to happen to me during the process, so I purchased another board thinking that I would be in limbo for weeks. Then the unthinkable happened, and 2 weeks later I received a email from Asus telling me that they had sent the replacement. Three days later it arrived at my door.

Of course the replacement I bought from Amazon had two bad dimm slots so I had Amazon replace THAT one, but the second one from Amazon was good. Well, good except that for weeks I have been troubleshooting what I thought was a faulty ASMedia USB controller. It would appear then disappear in my device settings. I tried what I thought was everything from pulling out hardware to installing/ reinstalling the OS, and then after all that time and energy it occurred to me that it might have been a faulty USB cable or device. And it turned out to be exactly that. A bad USB extension cable. Live and learn.

It will help with 3 or 4 cards especially if you OC/OV and have other PCIe devices connected. With 1 or 2 cards only, there's no benefit. You won't come close to exceeding the power delivered through the slots.

I kinda knew that already, I dont know what I expected but I was hoping that I could get some extra TDP limit on my seahawk if I added the extra power on my mobo.But its hardwared into the gpu.

Oki, this board is from launch, but I recently encountered a very annoying problem.

After every time I go to the BIOS it will post up and say 'Error no OS' or something. If I go to the boot section my 840 Pro is not discovered, if I press F8 in the normal start-up menu, I can boot from the 840 Pro.

Please help?

Newest bios.

On the exit tab click on load optimized defaults and see if that fixes it. If your 840 pro is still missing after that then clear your CMOS.
