    Need help here, unable to RMA due to bent pin Motherboard


    I bought ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII FORMULA 7th of may.
    Everything was fine for 1 day, but then after updating the BIOS to beta firmware, the motherboard wouldnt post.
    It was stuck on Detecting HDD, black screen etc.. JUST bought i9 10850k Marvel edition so was kind of frustrating.
    Because I heard this board was about to stop distribution on my e-tailer, I bought another one to send the other back and get refunded for the faulty board.

    I sent it back, my new board has no issues by the way.
    Now I get the message that there is 1 faulty/bent pin in the socket and blaming user error.
    I havent done damage to it with the CPU or anything.
    Talked through the steps taken, and we sort of ended up with the socket protection lid must have hit the pin when returning or it was that from factory assembly.

    Now I have two options either repair it or scrap it..... 586 euros/698 dollars.... just down the drain....
    I havent used the board more than 1 day and all the problems started when updating the BIOS, thinking it was the BIOS flash module.
    After that my game would crash to desktop, kind of odd the pin would suddenly work for 16 hours.. then give errors like black screen.
    Have 4790k system, 7700k system and now 10850k system, havent had issues with the pins or sockets before and I'm always careful..

    Anyone here from ASUS ROG department that has RMA handling?
    Or someone knows what I can do next, it seems so stupid...
