    Angry Amazon delivery of My Maximus X Formula.

    Hello,
    I just had the same experience from Amazon with my Maximums X Formula. The board was advertised as "Brand new" and there is obvious wear and tear to box and plastic protective coverings.

    Just wanted to mention that I ordered my Maximus XI Code board from Newegg and it too had a couple fingerprints on the protective plastic coating that you remove so this definitely doesn't seem like an isolated incident with Amazon. Not sure what's going on but it seems to be coming that way from the factory. Which is unfortunate to say the least. My board was perfectly fine, nothing missing or damaged, so not concerned by it.

    New egg is one of the most trusted sources there is. I have a premiere account with them that gets me free shipping and an extended no questions return window with no restocking fees. I always buy the membership before any major build so if things dont work out I can return parts no worries. Not to mention their main east coast distribution center is 20 minutes from me so easy will call pick up when I cant wait.

    Some of the new boards get pulled and sent back for rework before they are sold. The RVI had VRM issues at first release and they all went back for rework making finding one near impossible for quite some time and when you did they had been opened. Mine came and didnt even have a static bag and finger prints here and there. Didn't care, cleaned right up and it had a 30 day return window. I found it at walmart online of all places
