This should probably be in Offtopic
I apologize. If moderators feel that this topic should be elsewhere, I won't protest.
Have you contacted the shop to ask what they have to say about it? An early contact may come in handy later if you are to return the product.
Thanks you for the reply and the display of common sense. I sent an e-mail inquiry to the customer service of the retailer and received a relatively swift response from their warranty processor. According to him, the bending is not unheard of and it will not have an effect to the warranty. I asked Asus the same question and I'm waiting for their reply.
I don't actually mind the warping that much, I was just worried if it would have an impact on the warranty. This is all assuming that the board actually works, which I will find out once my power supply arrives.
