Got a response from Asus for my mobo... $120 for bent/broken fins + $50 labor + tax = ~$200. Gigabyte from what I seen is a little more easy going on their price. I have to buy a new mobo for my mini now mad.gif

HOLY

That's just a new mobo right there. What a joke.

I'd bring it back to the retailer. If you are nice hopefully they help you out.

I got the same motherboard and bent a pin in the same corner with the black cap taking it off. It may be the design of the cap, as I did find mine quite hard to take off? It was the first time I ever bent a pin in all the many systems I've built over the years frown.gif

Same. It really might have been that cap.

I already went to the retailer and they didn't help me out, I even put in an RMA with them and it's been a while, still no response. I worked out the logic and it's just much simpler to do an RMA with Gigabyte when the time comes. ATM the machine is stable, it just won't boot for 3-4 tries if I ever restart it. : (

Aiy, I wasn't happy with the response time with GB at all. I had to hound them for an answer and though they were willing to help it took too long. Still better than Asus though (and that's not saying much for Asus as I didn't go thru with the RMA with GB, lol...) boxing3.gif

Let GB know of this thread, and that others have had issues with the black cap, maybe they will help?

I messed up a few pins on my Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H motherboard a few months ago. Started an RMA, told them I messed it up, RMA approved, paid the shipping myself, and they fixed it.

You can start the RMA process here: http://ggcs.gigabyte.com/GIGABYTE-RMA-Login-User.aspx. It took 3 days before mine was approved, most likely because it was a Saturday when I started it. There was a 3 week turnaround, but they were nice enough to fix it without charging me.

That's good to hear of the confidence in gigabyte rma.

I was very pleased with them. It was clearly my fault and I told them what I had done. They could've charge me fix it, but in the end I only paid to ship the board to them.
