waiting for 9900k, how to test everything else?

 Share

so I pre ordered my 9900k on the 8th from Amazon and I'm still waiting for it. just contacted customer service and they have no idea when it will be in stock. my biggest concern is that since I only have 14 days left to return things such as ram, mobo, gpu, ssd's, or anything else there may be an issue with. how can I test these components to make sure everything is working before my return window is up?

 

 

think it would be possible to buy another cpu while I wait and return it to Amazon, or do they not take returns on them?

nobody I know has an 8 series cpu for me to test with, and this is my first ever pc build. I haven't had a desktop in 8 years, just laptops so I don't have 1 laying around.

 

here's the build if it helps.

asus rog xi hero

trident z (2x16) 3200mhz c14

2080ti fe

ek gpu & cpu block

TT view 71 case

d5 pump res combo

420mm rad (3 fans top, 1 inside)

360mm rad (3 fans)

500gb 970 pro m.2 ssd boot &(for work/scool programs)

1tb 850 evo sata ssd (already had it)

6tb WD red HDD

asus rog swift pg279q ips monitor

... miscellaneous stuff...

 

tested the loop last night (no leaks) which makes me really happy since not only was this my first custom loop, but my first build.

 

also, when contacting Amazon. I preordered at $529. well they were saying to buy from another vendor on their site and they'd cover the price difference of around $50. but I think the person got confused. anyway, I kept my preorder, and when my cpu ships, they're giving me a $50 credit on my account. so Im actually getting my 9900k for $479!!! no way in hell im passing that up.

 

thanks in advance for any help.

 

tl:dr

how can I test mobo, ram, gpu, etc. while waiting for my 9900k?

 

EDIT: opinions on the build?

find a cheapass Coffee Lake CPU, buy it quickly (preferably from a retail store so you don't wait for delivery), test them.

I was thinking about getting a used Celeron g4900 they're like $55 on eBay, but my concern with that is if it's no good I won't know if that's the issue or something else (still new at this stuff) and I'd be out another $55. I'm over $5,000 into this build already(which was way over my budget). I really don't want to buy one if I can't return it. and I'd preferably like one that I know works to make trouble shooting easier

If the first G4900 doesnt work, get another. Intel doesnt hand out crappy CPUs for free for debug and BIOs updates lile AMD
