Here I am thinking I bought a new MSI K7T Turbo2 motherboard only to notice that this mobo isn't in prestine condition. I just wished they would seal the box with saran wrap so consumers know they are getting new merchandise. Anyone who bought this mobo from newegg, I need you on this one. I'll do some investigation first before I decide to have this exchanged. The package has no items missing. What was missing was the yellow, warning tape that seals the anti-static bag. A piece of clear tape was used instead. This lit up some red lights immediately. Perhaps, the original purchaser ripped it off instead of carefully pealing it, like I do when I intend to return a merchandise. Next, when I removed the mobo from the bag, I noticed immediately that there were stains on the surface, front and back. Upon carefully investigation, the stain had a sticky consistency, like when you spill soda and don't clean it off, and after a while the thing turns sticky on you. I'm thinking the original owner spilled something on this mobo and then returned it. I guess I need some reinforcement from you people, that I'm not just over-reacting and that this is normal? Right now I'm doing some burn-in tests to see if anything has been damaged. ---Please watch your language in future. -Phantasm66.
