So it turns out I have a bad chip

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
That, or a bad motherboard.

Took my freshly built rig (sig rig) into NCIX and they can't figure out why my bus clock is jumping between 60MHz and 95MHz, and sometimes spiking to 200MHz (the multiplier always corresponds to keep the resulting core clock to 3.4GHz).

They're going to replace my processor first, then possibly my motherboard if it's not the processor that is the issue. (No stock in right now though).

I just wanted a working computer. It works... I mean... but it's an unlocked CPU without the ability to even hit the 3.8GHz turbo that the 2700 regular can hit.

Yep I'm returning the motherboard and CPU, no service charge. 100% refund. I talked with the tech guy and he said it's no problem.

I live just a 20-35 minute drive away (depending on traffic) from NCIX Langley.

I get to pick out a new motherboard and I get a new i7 2600k when they come back in stock.

Life is good.
