Maybe you should just "send it back" and "get a refund" if you are "too worried about the motherboard." Or at least calm down the the quotations.
I have a computer with an ASrock motherboard in it (N68-s) and it has been going strong for over a year and a half. Don't expect too much out of budget boards, then again, don't expect too less. You're paying less for a board that supports less features and is less capable of more expensive models, but not exactly just a board that is going to explode and burn your house down because it was made poorly.
They're not hoping that if you're too cheap to buy something more expensive it means you probably don't have the money for a good lawyer in case your house detonates and takes half the block with it, they're just trying to offer people products without all the added features that they don't need and don't want to pay for.
