    So I just received my new board this evening, from a company I wont mention (will speak to them dependant on comments). Little surprised with the motherboard wrapping, just wondering if this is standard nowadays?

    It wasn't boxed at all other than the parcel it came in? that isn't normal even with OEM, etc. for a retail board it should be fully boxed and with accessories. If you are talking about the bag itself that is normal.

    No. Sorry should have clarified. Was in box it's just wrapped using selatape that has been cut using what looks like off a roll with a jagged cutting piece like what you'd have at home and taped over like it's already been opened. I could be wrong that's why I'm asking. Previous motherboards were wrapped a lot neater.


    K thanks Rroff. Will just put it down to my paranoia.

    I think it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. The wifes Gigabyte board was just sealed with a bit of sellotape but the last few Asus boards that I have recieved have had a yellow and black security tag sealing the bag.

    Both my original AX370 K7 and replacement K7 was packaged like that, so it's normal, at least for Gigabyte. Think my brother's Gaming 3 was like that too if I remember correctly.

    Maximus X Hero doesn't even have a bag! Plastic sheet in tray, that's it!

    Cheers guys, alleviated my fears. Be looking to build tomorrow and it being my first gigabyte build-won over by this site's praises for customer service offered. Just didn't like the fact it was out of stock then 1 appeared suddenly followed by sent notification! As always this place is a wealth of knowledge.

    As other's have said the packaging looks absolutely normal for Gigabyte motherboards.

    For peace of mind @Atom80 could give clarification (Gigabyte rep)

    It should be fine although my gaming 7 didn't look that.

    I'd guess it's a dsr return or something similar, as the antistatic bag looks a bit iffy.

    If it's working fine though then whatever. I'd guess you paid a bit less for it than the going rate?
