WORST PC PARTS ever! (please list your worst purchases and why lol) - Page 13

post #121 of 376
my gtx 560 Ti that I purchased a few months ago. it sucked so much. unstable at stock clocks and can't oc for peanuts. by far the worst pc part I've bought ever.

edit;

and they're supposed to overclock like monsters. mine can't even pull a measly 20mhz overclock even if I bump the voltage to the max.

ASUS Reference GTX470. I do a lot of research when i get my parts. This time i took OCNs word and ended up getting my worst card. People here tend to forget that its not all about performance. I was hitting 100C with 100% fan speed. The card was not defective what so ever because you could simply tell the stock cooler was bad.

Edit: Before the idiots come rolling in saying PEBKAC, my spare card was a 460 and I swapped between the 2 multiple times to get the same results (Skyrim).

"In a game" you put AMD cards into the worst pc parts ever thread just because of one game that you are having problems with?

That is a little much...

If there's one thing that pops into people's minds when you say GTX 470, or GF 100 it's an image of someone trying to fry eggs with the card and catching them on fire.

Mine would be my EVGA 560 Ti. takes 1075mv to do 880Mhz core F@H/gaming stable. It'll do 3DMark01 at well over 1100 core on air with 1150mv though tongue.gif Not really that bad, but I had to post something on topic.

I've had a few over the years.

1) 680i motherboard. Piece of trash. Unreliable.

2) EVGA sent me back to back DOA 8800GTS 640MB cards from RMA. That was kind of strange.

3) Scythe Slipstream fans. Don't put them near anything restrictive, even fan filters, or they have a tendency to die pretty quickly.

4) Anything DFI (if you needed support/RMA). Worst customer support ever. No speaky the Engrish, and didn't listen to me when I was trying to tell them what was wrong with my motherboard.

Sapphire 4850. got it for 80 bucks new and it was part of my first build featured below. I was so excited to turn the thing on and after days of scratching my head I found out the graphics card was DOA. I didnt even care about the 80 bucks at that point, i ripped it out of my machine and broke it with a hammer....2 days later i picked up a gtx 260.

I've been lucky enough not to have anything die on me since i do a ton of research before buying anything, however I have made a couple of silly purchases. First is my i7 920 c0 which I bought in 2009 before I knew about stepping revisions. That chip did 3.6GHz @ 1.325v and that's it. I sold it this year and bought a second hand i7 930 which is now at 4GHz @ 1.27v. Secondly my Emermax 1000w PSU which I bought before knowing anything about PSUs, the unit is excellent however I could of saved myself a bunch of cash buying the 850w model.
