    True . But if Nodens says that rectangle is not used for anything and is irrelevena to mobo work, then there should be no need of troubleshooting. I think im going to intall this mobo , afterall its the best looking of all i got last days . I just wrote to ASUS service and to my distributor that this mobo has those scratches out of the box and that i wanna use it , just need assurance they wont blame me and those scratches in case of further failures. I hope there wont be any issues tho. BTW , dont You guys think it would be wise to isolate this anyway with simple transparent nail polish ? If this rectangle is not connected to the mobob this wont change anything but it would isolate it electrically and it wont corrode in the future. I want this build to work a long time without rebuilding so if those tracks start to corrode it would not be good.

    The square area has no traces and its number shows the total PCB traces. Your photos show tiny amounts of solder flux that has remained on the board. This is a result of the mass production process on every motherboard. It's not a defect; it's absolutely nothing to worry about. Honestly, some of the pictures I don't even see the issue.

    What we do take exception to is the fact that you're both complaining and questioning whether it's relevant. We always try to be supportive as possible to our customers, but we must also defend our brand from outright wrong accusations that can leave the wrong impression in others.

    You admit you don't know what it should be and the result is an absolutely normal and perfectly good board - one you haven't even plugged in yet! Further to this you throw around false ideas that our distributors are out there to damage our goods!? What possible point could there be in doing this? They would only have to handle the cost of RMA. We've NEVER had an incident of fake ROG MB simply because the level of technology is hugely cost intensive to replicate (otherwise we wouldn't be the only ones making them).

    While the questions raised in this thread are worthy of discussion - we don't mind that at all - the continued approach and accusational attitude in the face of all evidence is completely unacceptable. I've closed the thread before it perpetuates a further wrong impression as you have your definitive answer.
