first build ever - i7 920

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
So I decided to get things rolling and document my progress through my first ever build, not to mention my new rig since my one from like 2002 just died and it was going to be more of a hassle to get her working again for shoddy performance.

soo... some stuff from the egg came in today... maybe half of what i ordered..
ill post those pics later but first i want to show you guys this.

hmm never seen a fan like that before. Looks like a regular stock fan but its wrap in something?

Edited: i looked at the pictures again wow seems like this is a funny joke or you serious got jipped. Hope you get it settled if it is the second.

Uhhhh...

I cant tell if this is serious or not..

The fan pics - are you saying the thing looking like a fan was a giant sticker? Is there anything in that white plastic mess?

Have you opened the plastic around the chip yet? Is that a protective cover on the back of the chip? Mine definitely didn't look like that at all..

Wait, ok -- so that thing that we think is plastic around the "fan" is like melted plastic in the shape, and there is no fan, it's a sticker?

With a blank booklet..

I'd call Newegg, you just got ripped off.

looks like a sneaky person returned the i7 920 as new (unopened) with some some clear indication that the the i7 920 has been tampered. Scammed Newegg and you. You better contact newegg.
