OP said the board in the picture was warped way more than the last 2 but need to see pics of the last 2 to see how little/much they are warped.

I have had issues with Asus boards in the past, that has put me off using them in the future but I have never received a board that was bent in the slightest.

Personally the picture to me looks like the board has been hit with a great deal of heat that has made it warp like that, but it could be that the board was installed in a case prior to being sold to you and the person who had it previously bent it, possibly by trying to run cables under it or something.

Whilst as I say I have had issues with Asus boards I don't go publicly bashing them, all I do is if people ask me what I think about Asus motherboards I tell them the good things, in that they are generally better overclocking boards but I tell them the issues I have had and let them make there own minds up, as I know many people don't have issues with them and I think publicly bashing them for issues is not fair unless it's blatantly there fault.

Either way it's up to you if you want to get the retailer to send you another one and see if that is the same, or if you want to go with another manufacturer but if you have had 3 boards like that, I would be wary of getting more from the retailer until they can prove that the board being sent to you is not bent.

My money is on something over tightened. I would loosen all heatsinks etc etc. I can't see how a PCB can hold that shape without something forcing it that way.

I would say remove the heatsinks and see if it pops into place, but a bend like that causing a rapid straightening may have a chance possibly split/Damage the circuit lanes.

Ive now read all of your comments, sorry for not answering, i've been busy.

I got my 4th motherboard today, bent like the other 3, the difference here is that the one i got today is bought from another internet shop "retailer".

The box is not damaged by any means.

Im simply frustrated about all this. and i hope that theyre something to do.

Something sounds really fishy about all of this. Idk who is to blame yet but something is not right here.


Which retailers did you use and do you have a photo of the most recent board?
