Bought a brand new AMD 3200+ Venice core CPU and an ECS XN1 (piece of crap) mobo. mobo would not post. Went to pull the heat sink and out came the heat sink and CPU simultaneously which freaked me out causing me to drop the heatsink with the CPU still attached..............landed on the mobo and bent 16 pins on the CPU flat as a pancake. OUCH! Believe it or not AMD took that CPU in RMA and gave me a 3500+ in exchange!! Score!!!!!
