Minion is back to square one...

Thinking it's time to change plans somewhat.
If it wasnt for bad luck you wouldnt have any luck at all CM.

Hopefully things will start to work out on this build for you.

Hopefully....

Now im thinking along these lines: 65w AM3 Proc, lower the voltage as much as possible and/or underclock it. Put it under a 1U pure Copper heatsink and run it passive. hybrid crossfireX between a 780/785G and a 3450... How unoriginal. bleh.

Depressing.

Shitty dealz man. About newegg though, an order I placed during the black friday sale arrived about the same amount of time that it took for an ncix order to get to me around the same time frame. It also was shipped from California. I still prefer dealing with NCIX though :)

So the M4A785-M and 1U Copper HS arrive... but the processor is nowhere to be found? NCIX claim a "stock transfer" somewhere... wow what BS. I'm so angry at them right now. Placed my order on Saturday with purolator express shipping... JUST so i could it built by tonight. FFS NCIX, "Stock Transfer" my ass! There's 40 or so of these damn processors in TORONTO! Why can't you just send one from there? FFS put it on a truck from TO and stock dicking around with stock in vancouver you morons!

This may be one of the LAST TIMES i deal with this shoddy service.

Edit: Correction: There's 60 of the damn procs in TO! GRRRRRRR

Ugh. Pathetic support.

"Well we actually only have a couple on hand. the 60 in toronto is from a supplier" WTF? And what about 30 listed in stock in vancouver? is that from a supplier also? Morons.

"We can't ship from a supplier directly" Also WTF? Since when does NCIX list stock they dont actually have For Sale? Isn't that illegal somehow... IE You cant list as something available for sale when you don't actually have it? WTF.. Am i pre-ordering this proc now?

"It should be sent out today" GRRRR, I pay for purolator express ( which is NBD) on Saturday. Yes, i know there may have been a few orders on Friday night after they closed but STILL - It shouldnt take Mon + Tuesday before shipping saturday's backlog. WTF is ncix doing? Maybe TODAY theyre processing orders from Sunday then...

If its not here by tomorrow then i kiss the chance to build it this weekend gbye.

/very angry ranting.

It's a sign that it doesn't want to be built.
