You shouldn't have to put up with defects like that, I would definately RMA the board. Speaking of bloopers, when I was trying to take out a stripped screw in my motherboard securing it to the chassis, i accidently scratch the pcb, my heart nearly stopped. On first attempt, it didn't even boot, then magically after i tried again, all is back to normal. That was the first time I almost cried lol.

Its not really worth the downtime to RMA it as I have had it sense september and its still working fine. I'll just have to think of another way to reattach the fan where it will not fall off :p Also... one time I was putting on a heatsink for a CPU and the screwdriver slipped and I jabbed the motherboard. I damn near almost **** my pants and had a heart attack... luckly ... the motherboard still worked... last time I ever made that mistake :)

I think just about everybody has done this once, And most of the time with a new board putting on the heatsink. :D
