Well I got the OK from NewEgg for a replacement CPU Q9550 , This sucks . I noticed some thing strange with that CPU and I can not get over it . After getting it all up and running took forever . I had to downgrade the Bios and even that did not help it still felt very wrong , Took forever to get into the boot up phase and out of the Bios . Seemed so strange that it would take that long for the system to boot up . I noticed that it was glitch when opening up programs like Wprime and then opening up fire fox at the same time it acted strange glitching and very slow . Temp readings really off for a WATER cooling setup the Q6600 65nm CPU 32c idle and don't break 50c loaded with 1.52 Vcore !!!! The Q9550 was off the scale for me 40c to 55c loaded and that is a 45nm chip at stock EVERY THING ! I told NewEgg this and well I hope after another week or so I will get a better CPU out of this . Just did not seem like it was right , Hell this Q6600 has been put through the ringer and it runs fine whether I OC this CPU or run it at stock speeds it doesn't have that feeling that the Q9550 had . Do you think that it was a crappy Chip ? And how would that happen ? Do they not check them ?
Facts is the Q6600 is going strong nothing weird or strange happening at all . every thing is smooth not slow and glitching .
GOD what a nightmare ! Now I have to send out this CPU have NewEgg get it and look at it then if all goes well have them send me a new one back ! GOD this is going to take forever ! Why ME ? what the fuck did I do ? DID I wish for too much or hope to much or fantasize to much ? Just what the hell did I do to deserve this ?
Well I hope they give me a better one this time if not I am going to get my money back !
I feel like I have been
