At worst, the box will be worn and some cables will be missing.
they also dont come with the I/O shield, I dont know if the OP wants them or not. Then Intel Mobos might come with bent pins and stuff, or faulty on the 2nd PCI-E slot. I guess it depends on luck.

Im pretty sure that it will work, and if it doesnt, then newegg will replace it, But i dont like doing the return process if something is wrong.
Recertified and open box arent exactly the same. Open box are usually something that was returned because the previous customer didnt like it or something, and Recertified is more of refurbished where they repaired any faulty parts.
