I love Microcenter

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So my previous 2500k wasn't a very good overclocker (1.370 V @ 4.5 GHz), and I decided to ask Microcenter if they could replace it for me. I explained the situation, and the guy agreed that the voltage used at the overclock was not reasonable. He exchanged the CPU (put it back on the shelf as open box) and gave me a new one.

Now I'm sitting here running 1.310 V @ 4.5 GHz smile.gif

Going to see if I can push to 5 GHz.

Was it just an even exchange and which Microcenter is this?

Yep, it was just an exchange.

It was the one at Long Island.

Yeah Microcenter is a beast store, I usually buy most of my parts there.

They wanted to take back my old 780i FTW, about 4 months after purchase when I was telling the store manager about some issues. I declined the offer but it shows how much they care about customer service.

Now the Marietta store in my areal; they are a different story....
