I received my mobo from Mwave today. I was very happy with the price and the fact that they actually stuck to the eta. Here is the bad part and maybe I am just being obsessive compulsive. I opened the box and there was very little styrofoam peanuts. You could actually shake the mobo box around inside the outer box. If I order case fans, sleeving, etc. from most places they fill the box with styrofoam peanuts and those are not fragile items. I guess mwave doesn't consider a 250.00 mobo fragile. I am sure it is ok due to the fact that the mobo is pretty snug its retail box, but come on. How hard is it to package something. I am sure the box was thrown around some in transit. I sure hope it works, because it would take forever to get another one.

When I ordered Oblivion, it came in that protective plastic thing that they have in bets buy to prevent theft and stuff, and that itself was in a good 2 feet of styrofoam peanuts. It was insane.

But ya, I understand your pain..I like playing with all those peanuts too. :D
