WORST PC PARTS ever! (please list your worst purchases and why lol) - Page 3

post #21 of 376
The worst thing i ever bought (I can name many, but none of them are as worse as this) is a Pentium 4 630 @ 3GHz

At the time i thought the more GHz you had the faster you go. WRONG WRONG WRONG. Im glad i have the rig i have now. SO GLAD. (look below for specs) It stomps the old P4 rig into the dust!

Earlier this year I bought a 5.25" intake fan device for my 800D. Impulse buy.

Looked terrible
Functioned terrible

Terrible terrible terrible.
post #23 of 376
Worst thing I bought. Gainward GTX4601 GB.

Crappy non-reference PCB, G92 mountings, barely any aftermarket HSF's, pathetic stock HSF, brittle fan, high temps. May I go on? Should of bought a 5850..

8gb of ddr2 1066

I thought I was being sneaky buying high performance last gen stuff to upgrade my rig........

Well that Ram that I bought was a 4x2gb set and no motherboard supports ddr2 support 1066 on 4 slots.

After buying 2 more motherboards to just get the ram to work, I sold the whole mess and made a whole new build using DDR3 for more performance and less money.

My worst was a NZXT Sentry 2 LCD Fan Controller, the fact that on NZXT official forum there is a huge list with fans that have known issues (nearly all CM fan's, which my case is made of) and NZXT have done absolutely nothing about it is BAD.
