Dell $100 Promo Visa® Prepaid Card* Included (bought a laptop for my school bound daughter)

Except not 'included' as in 'given to you' or 'sent to you along with the damn thing I bought'. The '*' doesn't actually go anywhere on the page that is showing it. By 'included' they seem to mean 'you have a very limited time to claim a pre-paid Visa that willl expire very quickly (90 days)'. Claim is done by supplying them information they already have, at least I think it does as they have asked for more, which I sent and now it just says 'rejected'.
So many people were rejected about a month ago. I didn't buy anything and it still makes me mad.

That does suck, but any part from any manufacturer can fail. The question is whether or not the RMA process will be handled in a way that makes the hassle of an RMA bearable. Currently I am at business day 8 since contact with Corsair, and I've managed to get one BS canned reply.

the word "degraded" showing up in the output of mdadm

The linux guru that setup this machine is no longer with the company... going to be an interesting day.

yup shadow I am glad that at least I have a clue what's going on now and ya I was just bitching I fully understand that no matter who we buy from it can happen hell for all I know it's my CPU, not the board will find out Friday when I can get to Canada computers

sorry to hear corsair is dicking you around. when I contacted Asus customer support they were great the person was like I am so sorry this happened don't worry your board is covered till 2022 so just waiting till Friday to find out if the CPU is ok or not
