    Thats too bad bro! Just sell your unit and try to breakeven is the best thing to do imo. I hope you can find a nice mobo any time soon. I cant seem to imagine what you are going through. The hassle and everything.

    This can ruin your business. Not all places they can obtain new MB the day one after. And expect refurbished with more problems. Some must even wait up to one month for fixing their machines although Premium Support. And what with the rest of hardware? Don't expect good TRIPOD with every MB replacement or other repairs. And Dell's outsourced tech team... I'm sure you know what I mean.

    The tripod thing is nothing new. I repasted my old xps l521x two weeks ago and it was a tripod lol.

    It's the tripod that gets the press, but it's the hinge and the imbalance in height between the thermal pads causing the core temp differential :)

    The fewer the screws the more chance of imprecise tightening and lift imposed by one overtightened screw on the other two.

    F*ck it, it's up for sale. I got a great deal on it so I won't take a big loss.

    Now I want something bigger and better :D Maybe I'll wait for the MSI GT75
