Ok first... Welcome To Hardwarecanucks.com and second what website are we talking about ?

I mean where did you purchased the motherboard from ?

Oh and we can't really tell you why this error is there (if there is actually one) as this is not a shop's customer service forum. Well as far as i know. Might want to e-mail the shop instead. It might be a typo error.
