Beware Motherboard was USED - CPU Paste on CPU Plate !!!

Summary: The motherboard is a used board sold as new - the box showed wear and it was not sealed with an Intel seal but badly taped with clear tape - I opened the MB plastic bag which looked like it had an Intel seal and right away noticed the large greasy finger prints with CPU paste on the back CPU plate - the CPU cover was not clamped back the way it should be as well - so this might be an RMA board that the Amazon 'Fullfillment' team found from some vendor who offered it to...
Summary: Tried their Windows BIOS update utility...it tried to reboot and never came back up. BIOS recovery (via jumper method) did not work. RMA'd. Tried to update BIOS on RMA board by going into the BIOS menu. System never came back up. BIOS recovery (via jumper method) did not work. RMA'd and got an ASRock which has had no issues. I update BIOS all the time at work and I have never had this happen. I believe they have published bad BIOS on their website.
Summary: Lange Zeit war ein Mainboard von Intel der Inbegriff von Stabilität und Kompatibilität. Scheinbar meint man aber nun, sich an ASUS & Co. orientieren zu müssen - Featuritis statt Funktion. Mit den DP67DE ging es los - 5.1 und 7.1 Audio funktionierte nicht, das BIOS-Update unter Windows, bei der P55-Generation absolut problemlos, versagte gern aber Hauptsache, wir können jetzt auch bescheiden übertakten, toll.
