Discussion Bad motherboard quality

Jul 28, 2020
I am 60 years old, been building computers from scratch since 1986. I've had about 3 or 4 bad motherboards in total. In the last 6 months 2 came for ASUS. CPU socket had bad pins. I have built 100's of computers and straightened countless bend pins. I was held accountable for the ASUS quality errors and was stiffed by NEWEGG both times.

During my last adventure with NEWEGG I was lied too 3 or 4 different times and have the written proof to prove it. After 27 days I had to spend another 200 dollars out of my pocket and buy a ASrock motherboard from amazon and finished the build with no problems.

So after 16 years of buying from NEWEGG and more than a half a dozen stiffings by ASUS and NEWEGG this is the last straw. I hope and pray if you buy an ASUS Motherboard or anything going through NEWEGG returns, if it is bad that you just go ahead and take your stiffing and order the replacement from another more reputable company.
