    I never send it for repair, it's a brand new one and it work flawless . As I said I see many pics on the web with the same missing chips, it,S only the Asus marketing pics that have the chips. I,m just curious to know why they remove it , and why they remove it. MSI boards also have some chips missings like this one., where you see the copper, before the different version has the board paint where the chips was not install.

    Maybe it was designed with redundancy and they were removed at the time of production. If it works, don't worry about it, this is common.
