Lol, that's how I look at it. The money I spend in the summer cooling the room I make back in the winter by NOT heating it!

All you get is a congrats and the postbit! We don't have birthday cakes on this here pirate ship! What do you think this is, a cruise liner?

It's official... I am now thoroughly pissed off at Asus. I can understand getting a bad motherboard from a reseller, It happens, I can even understand getting a bad replacement motherboard from a RMA, Mistakes happen, but this is the 3rd motherboard that I have gotten and for it to be messed up is just beyond belief. I get the board and I don't even need to put it in my computer to know that it will not go into my case, The PCB of the motherboard itself is bent beyond the point that it would fit inside my case. Also the little blue square heat sink over the south bridge is scratched up to all hell like someone took something and purposely scored it. I'm just done. I will not accept another re-manufactured Asus P6X58D Premium Motherboard. I won't even accept a new one from them. They are going to have to send me a brand new retail Asus Rampage III Extreme and they are going to have to next day air it to me. This is my 3rd damm RMA and that is not acceptable by any standards. Asus used to be one of, if not "The", best motherboard manufacturers out there but now I'm not so sure. I might just get a full refund and go with a MSI, Gigabyte, or eVGA board now. I am soooooo pissed off right now. Sorry for venting on you guys but I don't know what to do anymore. Any ideas?

About asus try a different board perhaps (other model stay with asus)
post #844 of 11136
Like have them upgrade me to the Rampage III Extreme? I mean that is ultimately the board I originally wanted but couldn't get because I was already spending $2500 on my rig and the wife wouldn't budge a penny more so I wouldn't turn it down.

I'd see what I could get from Asus. But definitely consider a different company in the future. I love my Gigabyte (and had a great RMA experience from them) board personally.

@Repo... I am thinking that If I get a refund that I will go with the UD5 or UD7 from Gigabyte, Msi big bang, or eVGA's Classified 4 way SLI.
