I bought an Athlon 640 at MSY last week, it worked for 5 days then on restart the PC would not show anything. I take the CPU out, put in another 640 CPU and it boots up fine. = Broken Athlon 640.
I tried taking it back to MSY today, in the line I hear a man looking for a monitor with a VGA port, the person behind the counter says "Nah, this monitor only has D-Sub and DVI." Idiot. Anyway, I get to him and say I had it for a week, broke in 5 days and explained how I swapped it out and got a boot.
He took out the CPU from the packaging, and he looked at me (I'm 15) and asked if I put it in myself, I say yes, then he looks at the chip and says instantly "Bent pins" notice the >>S<< on the end of pin. So he says there are bent pinS. I instantly say there aren't any because I already checked, then he says, "No, it's slightly bent - but still bent. Nope - I can't return this." He tries to put it back into the packaging but I ask to see it, It's instantly clear that there are no bends at all, not even slightly. I say again that there are none at all, so he takes it back, and says "Straight, Straight, Straight, Bent, this one right here." And points to the MIDDLE of the CPU pins. How would I have bent the middle CPU pin SLIGHTLY if the pins on the side are all fine?
Also notice how he says "This one right here" as if he is referring to only one pin this time, where as last time it was pinS. He is basically making up excuses not to give me a replacement. To prove he doesn't like me even more, he gives me both parts I asked for wrong and tries to make me pay more, on a sheet I wrote that I wanted Kingston HyperX 4GB Kit 1600MHz DDR3. He goes and gets me a 6GB kit that is $30 more, and a motherboard that is $20 more, then explains that I didn't ask for the BLUE version.
Am I just being really picky?
He treats me like an idiot just because I'm 15, and then he even says "Should be more careful next time" as I'm walking out of the door.
I'm 100% sure that NO pins are even slightly out of place, and I really can't be bothered sending it to AMD and waiting weeks.
