Can we trust open box at newegg? I never try this.

^ not with mobos, they are usually hit or miss
but since asus is accepting RMA on B2 revisions, then there's not much of a risk
you just might be missing some accessories

Also the SLI bridge may be missing which is a problem if you plan to SLI because the cards don't come with them. Other than that though the SATA cables shouldn't be that big of a deal, and I believe there was also a PCI 2 port USB 3.0 bracket included with mine and the little Q-connector things for the front panel connections.
Great info. I havent built a desktop in a really long time.. like pencil unlocking athlon days... and didnt think about mounting hardware with the case. I would have realized when the UPS man drops off my Corsair 650d today though

If they arent included, getting the other accessories shouldnt be too big of a problem but it would all detract from the value.

open box is hit and miss with newegg

I did good on a yamaha receiver...still working perfectly after a year or so, came with all the accessories and manuals.

got an asus 6970 video card...was an open box of a refurb, worked ok as long as you didn't use it for gaming. If you did it would screen tear the crap out of any title vsync on/off didn't make no difference.

Was actually a little upset about that one...open box is one thing. an open box of a refurb is more like an item that has already been returned twice. In other words there is obvioulsy going to be something wrong with it and I wouldn't have ordered it in the first place

Well newegg sucks. My evo was listed as shipped when i got an RMA email that i never initiated.

I used chat and was told my order was pulled at the final scanning before UPS picked it up after already being packaged.

Total bs and not really the customer service i expect from newegg.

Seems like they rethought sending out flawed boards to customers instead of RMAing it themselves? Not sure to be honest..

and they cancelled because they expect stock soon.

my desperation for p67 has me grasping at straws.

Were people able to return their cpus too because of this? If so you could see some cheap SB chips go up.
