Just an update - Newegg is returning the broken MB to me saying it had bent cpu pins (REALLY? WOW..sarcasm) and could have been done from installation error.
Now I get to deal with ASRock to see if they will replace this board. Seriously, look up the ASRock Z77 Error code 55 and see how many people had this same problem, yet ASRock still tries to say every one of those people did it themselves..?? really??
Well, I will either have a broken board that I paid for or else a spare board, that I paid for, since I already bought another MB from Newegg. If they wont replace it I may make a video showing the awful quality control and then beating the hell out of it with a hammer
Doubt I will ever buy another ASRock product and I know for a fact that Newegg has lost some of my business as I have already just had someone buy all their parts from Amazon for a build they want me to do for the new year.
