My System Specs


It's already out of the rig and back in the box. I'll take it back to Mem Ex tomorrow and get them to exchange it. I've never heard of this happening before. Odd.

I do actually have multiples of all the components I'd need to test. I have a couple of AM3+ mobos, 3 sets of RAM and a couple of SSD's.

If I have a problem with a second processor, then I have lots of options.

Edit: Screw it. I'm going to return it today, but instead of getting a new one I'll get a 3570K instead. They're holding a nice Z77 motherboard for me.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
