yeah its a dirty trick man and one thats cost people money they dont have to throw away enit
9 months is a while but yet still should have Manufactuars warrenty

I would contact them and let them know of the Issue and possible ask for a refund for a better supported model cause idealy they are responsable and you have proof

with that proof should be enough to make them budge and fix it to make it right

ello again
ive just sent an enote to ebuyer so i'll await their reply. it was close lol. i just checked my account and it was delivered on june 1st.
what would u suggest i do cpu wise. is this likely to cause damage to anything else? as i read in the poststormy linked that if u reinstall the am3 cpu after the bios has been flashed to the am3+ version it burn out the motherboard due to how the power is handled.
proppa stressed me out this has but thanks for ur help folks i do really apreciated it

I don't think it will damage anything if your not going to use the board anymore

First of all wait for there word

Second if you got the money and can just get the other board

Third if not wait till you get some kind of info on it or another fix

why would they be closed ? kinda odd wouldn't they be open 6 days out of the week atleast

Well you can look into some better boards or we can suggest up to you but if you plan on useing that chip fine but if you have a fear of the board frying don't install your old chip back in it leave it alone and wait for a return response then ship it off

These are the things i would put down just because I know when you do a Bios flash it has warnings redflags etc but if it is up and running there was no damage but if you have concerns of the thermal side of the cpu and voltage changes then don't use it

I wouldn't do that

Looking for a fix would be more helpfull going back would cause damage and bad configuration alltogether not good i'll start looking for any info on this and get back to you there has to be some way of locking your clock speed in when disabling turbo and not having to go through the overdrive

Hmmmm speaking of that Disable the cpu overdrive in the CCC restart then log on then after check it if it is still disabled reboot go into bios then start your unlocking process but leave cool quiet auto as well as the c6 turn off turbo core change the ram speed if it is defaulted and save reboot then check your cpuz and other clock check tools to see if it sticks

Im thinking maybe if you stop the CPU overdrive your bios will allow the settings to stick just a hunch

you have the 12.3 because the cpu overdrive should show up all the way back from 11.11 i think

Also that probaly means the bios flash didn't work either

Hi Ganjiry,

I noticed you are RMA'ing the board to Ebuyer and remembered I did the same with a board a while back, so I checked my account to see how long the process took just to give you an indication.

I started the RMA on a Sunday night, Posted it back on a next day delivery to them on the Monday, and by the Saturday of the same week the money was back in my account.

I expect if you post it back Tuesday, you would have a refund by the following monday or tues.

Paul.
