Just something to remind people most stores will not take returns on Electronicas Devices that have been opened, so when purchasing an electronic component make sure to find out if there is any warranties, and any reasons for voiding receipt.

Try to avoid forcing any connections into other hardware this may cause electrical failure or power management loss.

When installing a new Motherboard always check with manual to make sure you are hooking up all jumper settings and power connections for proper function.
