That's such a shame, I don't mind scan. I ordered a MSI Z77A-GD55 from them, turned out they didn't have any in stock so they upgraded me to the Thunderbolt version for an extra £16, which is really cheap!

As for the annoying sticky pads, i've currently got a motherboard waiting for RMA, and they are still on the back, they are awful to get off so I didn't even bother putting them on my new board.

Ah fair, so this time round, I'll put no pads. I'm curious how that will affect the cpu mounting holes....Lol!

Doesn't appear to have had any affect apart from making it a pain in the arse to install. Had to get someone to hold the back-plate whist I screwed the mounting ring on. I am stupid though.

I never avoid dirty minded conflicts - they are healthy to have:

I installed the akasa apache fans.
Antec fans at 900 rpm = akasa apache at 1340 rpm (maximum rpm from this fans) monitoring the noise.

I did a 1 hour stress test using prime95 in my pentium 620.
Using the akasa apache the liquid temperature estabilish at 39.5ºC (1340rpm)
Using the antec fans the liquid temperature estabilish at 40.0ºC (1300rpm, noisy)

Conclusion: Using a pentium g620, that do not require a high cooling potential, the akasa apache was a great upgrade. The processor never gets more than 10ºC above the liquid temperature (liquid at 39.5ºC and the processor at 49ºC). All this results with a barely audible sound from akasa apache.

Who need a better cooling potential like using a overclocked processor, is better buy fans with more rpm range than akasa apache.
The Corsair SP120 still the better performance x noise for radiators (my opinion), but they cost twice from the akasa apache.

Me: of course you do. You don't want to take on the responsibilities for the product. Thus if Asus are saying the serial number is broken, then you should reject it. Little is said about if I have a liquid cooler that sticks to the board.
More so, I completely agree that if there are any traces on the motherboard, bent pins, then I wouldn't accept it either.
But traces by the cpu mounting holes? Is taking the...mick.
So instead of logically understanding the situation I'm in, scan, you have completely ignored customer relationship and/or service by rejecting it as you're in fear of being rejected rma by Asus.

Hey TD , about this , i only read abit about it , i also read the link you posted with your experience with Scan that rejected your Mobo RMA , but i want to make sure , what did actually really happened ?

1) Your Antec 920 isn't cooling as it suppose to be
2) Your Mobo die on you too , then you send back to Scan for RMA , but they rejected your RMA , saying

" Rejected due to physical damage - Severe track damage around one of the cpu cooler mounting holes. The serial number label has been tampered with, looks like its been removed and taped back on. Photos on the OLQ "

Hmm im not saying you did or so , but was there something happened when you removing / installing the cooler on your CPU ? Because i heard someone in Newegg said the Antec 920 is badly made , and somehow he had a hard time removing the cooler backplate or something and he said it's as if it will break the Mobo while trying to do so ! Also i think he said the screws can only be use once or something , if you tend to remove it and install to another new PC , that be a problem , i may misunderstood what he meant because my English isn't so good
Is there really such a big problem with this cooler ??

Also must i use the sticky tape ? Could i just have someone hold the backplate for me while i screw it in together ?
