Re: Warning for EVGA X299 Dark users
I can tell you this from personal experience and I HAD pictures of my MB socket before I turned it in...
I had an an original EVGA Dark running a 4820k. I went through a few RMAs with bad boards but on my last one it died as soon as I plugged the CPU in. I did take pictures before I plugged it in and before I RMA'ed it. BUT when I RMA'ed I received an email saying I sent the board back with bad pins... The long and the short of it is I lost the battle of the pictures of theirs vs. mine. I still buy EVGA MBs as this was the first and ONLY time I have every gotten grief, BUT it taught me to be EXTRA, EXTRA careful when dealing with them, let along inserting my CPUS... You can find many complaints on this board about warranty rejections because of pins and trust me its NEVER their fault. I still love and use EVGA extensively as I have a Dark X299, 2980Ti, PSU and AIO etc. ALL theirs, BUT I am cautious from now on.
