  1. My car has a 1.6 litre engine, but it has 4 cylinders. 4*1.6 = 6.4 So in reality, my car really has a 6.4 litre engine.
  2. Contacted the guy, the motherboard he sells it with isn't even compatible with the 2600k >.< Welp, would €250 be worth it for a locked i7-3770 with an MSI Z77A-G43 motherboard? Price seems a bit high, but I could be wrong. I know it's a Z77 motherboard with a locked CPU so that's a bit of a waste, but whatever. 2600k is about out of the question at this point, searched every available site and asked around for a bit but no good compatible motherboards anywhere. How would the 4670k compare? I know it's a hot chip, but how would it compare to
  3. I might have got a deal on a 2600k with a motherboard. My other choice right now is a locked 3770 with an MSI Z77A-G43 motherboard. The 4770 is out of the question unfortunately, the guy isn't responding at all. Overclocking the 2600k could give me better performance than a locked 3770 wouldn't it?
  4. Hhmm, the motherboard problem.. I hadn't thought about that, but they're indeed hard to get. The 4770k is just out of my budget, it's a great chip so I might consider it, and the guy gives me a motherboard with it. I might consider it. The motherboards that support the 2600k, you can still get some new but they have like a 4 week arrival time, if they arrive at all.
  5. Hi, I'm looking for a cheap upgrade from my Athlon. I found a 2600k for a good price, but I'm not too sure how the 2600k does today. Is it still good enough? I plan on playing Battlefield 1, I've heard it's a very CPU demanding game, how well does it do? My other choice is an i7-4770 + mobo + ram, but it's more expensive. Second hand i5's are undoable, they're sold for ridiculous prices or too slow for what I need.
  6. I'll just RMA everything. Either I wait half a month with a non-functional PC, or I wait half a month without the entire PC, makes no difference to me. Sigh.. Thanks for the help gents, I'll start packaging things and hope my problems will be over with one day. The webshop's warehouse can deal with my demon-cursed hardware.
  7. Haha that sounds like a pretty good solution to this problem. If this thing isn't cursed I don't know what it is.
  8. I already tried that. I wrote it in the OP. I tried the driver version that was on the disc, tried the one that was recent at the date I bought it, tried 5 different recent versions, no-go.
  9. Uh, yea should be possible. If the motherboard goes RMA, I'll just package everything up and send everything RMA. Wish I didn't have to go this path. This PC has been nothing but trouble.
  10. Unfortunately trying another motherboard is no option. Everybody here hates AMD with passion, because welcome in the land of fanboyism. I could try the GPU somewhere else, it could be a culprit as it only crashes during gaming. But why would the GPU crash while gaming, but is rock solid in a stress test? The PSU is adequate. I could go out and RMA literally every single part... Yea, even tried running a completely different operating system, same problems. Stable during stress test, unstable during actual gaming.
  11. Hi, I'm coming to beg for help as I'm completely done. I have this computer, it is not stable. It never is stable. It's not gonna be stable and it's an annoying turd. I'm at a complete loss as to why it keeps crashing. The specifications: AMD Athlon 860K @4ghz 12GB DDR3 (some 8gb kingston and some 4gb kingston of the same specs). In case you ask, yes I've ran the system with just 8GB of ram. Still crashes. Testing with 4GB is near impossible as barely any game runs with 4GB.

  12. I have my system specifications in my profile, but I'll write them down here: Cpu: AMD Athlon 860K Mobo: Asrock FM2A88M-HD+ R2.0 Gpu: Gigabyte GTX 950 Psu: Corsair VS350 Cpu cooler: Cryorig H7 The sound is clearly coming from the general area of the CPU. The HDD is mounted in the front of the PC, I checked all the fans and none of them are squealing. The squealing also seems to come and go. I can't really grasp what could be squealing. Capacitors? Voltage regulators? I've ran the PC during night
  13. Hi all I've been having stability issues since last month, with the graphics drivers crashing a lot and the computer blackscreening. I have run multiple stress tests, but never too long. Today I decided to run a stress test while I was asleep. One night I'll do the CPU alone, the other night the GPU and then the CPU and GPU simultaneously. It's been a long time since I actively listened to my PC. I usually wear headphones while using my PC. So about half a hour in, and I noticed some terrible squealing. I got out of my bed and noticed
  14. This is the absolute closest I can get, I don't have any camera's that can focus that close I took a look at the retention holes, and they don't appear damaged. I can fit a needle in just fine. If I only insert one side of the other part it's also fine, it's just that both pins won't fit. The holes have identical shape on both sides: A little slope in which I suppose you are meant to slide the pins, and the actual hole.
