Performance degradation yet?

EDIT: Nvm - took for granted it was your board.

How did that happen? Did they submerge it into salt water for pro longed periods of time? :lol:

It's not rust. It may be the clear coat on them reacting to heat from possible way over the top overclock. Rust is never shinny, LOL.

nope, not my motherboard (i have gigabyte)

read the links

also its shiny as the rust is under the shiny coating hence the bubbling

the guy is just going around to try to make a point, but the MB still works. what BS, and if anything, it looks like paint

If it is as they said in fact moisture during manufacturing, then they would not rust without being exposed to oxygen. I don't see how those chokes being sealed would do that.
