mobo rma question
« on: February 04, 2009, 12:28:33 am »
i have returned my gigabyte ma-770-ds3 to my local store where i bought it , it packed up last week (friday) and i returned it the next day . how long do you think it will take for the store to recieve it back or hear anything ? , it only lasted just under 6 months . does this happen often on this mobo ? , i was in the process on saving for a phenom II 940 but put that on hold lol

it all depends on the nature of the fault, but usually it is around 7 working days from the arrival, sometimes quicker, depending on the quantity that UK RMA received with the shipment from your dealer. but looking at the current weather conditions (extreme snowfall) i would not be surprised if it takes longer due to transport delays.

Are you sure nothing else is faulty? Try a new cpu/mobo/psu/gpu/ram if you can, for example try using a friend's pc to test your components are all ok. It may not just be the motherboard.

I wouldn't think so, as it actually keeps the board cooler rather than damage it in any way. What is it? A fan or heatsink?

If the board is modified or damaged somehow during installation/ using / removing of this cooler, the warranty will be void.

So it should be fine, as it just fits on the motherboard and can be easily removed without damage or doing anything to the actual motherboard :)
