you could pull a nubius and claim to be a n00b and the computer magically shut off but I was like 10 days shy of their 90 day guarantee but hey there's always the manufacturer warrenty that you could RMA it

im pretty sure Newegg will let me RMA it if i want. I already voided manufacturer warranty (bwahahaha...oops) but that doesn't matter much. It's perfectly stable right now (233*11, and was running 2.3GHz for a few days)...just it wont get me higher FSB like i want (still stuck at 233 even with 550watts). I might have been blaming the wrong thing all along...and its really a bad mobo still testing as usual lol.

oooo ok. i just popped mine open and looked for adjustable pots (which there arent't any of course) but i slavaged the torn sticker and made it look pretty good again. i don't think newegg checks for voided warranties unless they are REALLY bad (like maybe you ripped off the socket of the mobo or something lol)

Yeah a part of my BIOS socket was actually broken off from when I had to hot flash it and they didn't notice that.

I can tell my board must be an earlier version though. It has black dimms and the capacitors near the Vcore mosfets don't have the color coded coating on them, just silver tubes.

Previous board had the blue and purple dimms.
