I currently own an ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z with an AMD FX-8350 Black Edition processor. The motherboard is not function properly and ASUS has tried to repair it, to no avail. I am still within my warranty period, but I am not receiving any further assistance from ASUS; even though I have tried (am trying still). So I am going to write it off and get a replacement.

I need to be pointed in the right direction to determine... how can I get a replacement MB/CPU and still use the current OS License (Windows 8.1 Professional 64 Bit OEM System)?
