I'm starting to think this Apex board wasn't a sealed unit but instead a rma that was denied.

I can't get windows 7,8.1,10 or Linux installed no matter the settings in cam on off, windows Uefi on off, won't install on the Dimm.2 ssd or a Samsung 850 Pro Sata ssd

IV updated the bios 1404 tried everything.
Need some help here before I open a ticket have this board refunded for being Doa.

I had a similar thing happen a while back with a X58 system and i7-970. In the end, the i7-970 had one of those tiny resistors/capacitors on the underside of the CPU burnt/cracked. Poped a new CPU in and it worked perfect. That was definitely a tough one to troubleshoot.

Update waiting on rma memory to rule out faulty sticks. Rampage Apex is being refunded by eBay so not sure what to do with board upon changing boards I seen top right of socket has a batch of bent pins I looked before installing and when started acting up didn't see them till board was packed up. Can the board be salvaged or should I keep as a expensive paperweight? EBay said I can keep board lol.
