These mainboards have pins directly on the socket, if you are returning devices with these sockets please ensure the following.
The CPU should be removed from the mainboard
The Socket Protector Cap should be installed on the socket.
The board should be placed in a static bag
The board in its static bag with protector cap installed should be placed, padded in a sturdy box or back in its original box.

Laptops – These devices can sustain damage that would not be covered by warranty due to poor packaging.
The best way to transport a laptop is inside its original box.
Never pack a laptop’s AC adapter on top or underneath the laptop.
Always pack an AC adapter separately inside the same box (separate padding)
Place AC adapters and other accessories on the side of the laptop, never on top or beneath.
Use the original box where possible.
If you do not have the original box
Remove the stand and all ancillary cables.
Pack the laptop in a box after padding the front LCD panel side with 3CM or more of padding.
Pack the stand in the same box, padded separately.
Seal the box so that the contents cannot move around inside.
Never place a sharp or hard object against the LCD panel portion of the Monitor, it will be damaged in transit and will not be covered by warranty.
Tablets & Phones – Disconnect Chargers, pad device with 2CM of padding, pad the Charger separately, place both in a sturdy box and seal so contents cannot move inside the box.

DAMAGE THAT WILL VOID WARRANTY:
CYBERSHOP can only honour a product’s warranty if it is a genuine manufacturing fault. There are a few types of faults that are not covered by a limited hardware warranty. For items that come with an accidental damage covered warranty, some of these fault types below may be covered. You should check your manufacturer’s warranty certificate before submitting your item for warranty claim as any system found to be non-coverable will be assessed for out of warranty repair at a cost of $69.00 should you not proceed with the quotation for repair.
Fault types that are not coverable by a limited hardware warranty:
Physical Damage (Cracks, dents, heavy scratches, broken components)
When a lard object (laptop AC adapter) is placed on top of the laptop (or in a pocket outside the bag). This can cause what appear to be dead pixels to form in a particular shape on the LCD panel. This type of fault will NOT be covered by a limited hardware warranty. If your device has an accidental damage cover warranty, check your warranty certificate or with the manufacturer to see if this would be covered.
Liquid damage could be anything from a few drops of water landing on the machine through to full submersion in liquid.
We may even find signs of Liquid damage if the machine is operated in extremely humid environments that exceed its manufacturing operating humidity figures as defined by the devices manufacturer in the products user manual.
If the device is operated in ambient temperatures outside of the range specified as safe by the manufacturer, the warranty may be voided by the manufacturer.
If the device exhibits signs of tampering to the outer chassis or has an indication that it has been disassembled without prior approval, the machine may have its warranty voided by the manufacturer.
Tampering also means if we find non-original components inside the device. Unless the device was assembled by CYBERSHOP, all non-original components found inside the device will cause the warranty to be voided by the manufacturer.
