Bad experience with Komputerbay order fulfilled by Amazon.com

Helper, Amazon
30 August 2010
  • Summary: Komputerbay is a shady place. Even though they say order fulfilled by Amazon.com. They are cheaters. I ordered a Qx9650 Extreme tray processor. Guess what I received a used processor, but the packaging (their own static bag and foam wrapped!) said it is NEW!.

Wasted money

Darryl M., Newegg
8 January 2009
  • Summary: AMD is way better bang for your buck. Maybe this processer will overclock a little further but so what? The new Deneb is 3.0 and hit the market at 275$. This thing is a big waste of money. I was giving Intel another shot since they seemed to be ahead. They are only ahead on customer rip offs.
  • Pros: it's 3.0 ghz out of the box...
  • Cons: Where to start. It costs over a thousand dollars. Runs media terrible compared to my AMD 9600. It just feels jumpy. I have been thru all of the motions and I know that all of my problems lie in this processer. I returned the first only to get the exact same problems.

BFG's Mistake

Anonymous, Newegg
2 November 2008
  • Summary: I have a high level of respect for BFG even with this poor outing in the GF9 series of cards w/water-cooling. My BFG6800UOC is still kicking, so I'm not about to write this company off due to one bad card.
  • Pros: Looks like it would work.
  • Cons: 1 DOA card for me and a high yield of bad cards.

BEWARE - This is not properly identified, it is not an 'Extreme'...

Web Shopper Don, Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: The model number is the for the Core Dual Quad Q9650, it is not the 'Extreme' chip. Look at Intel's web site, the 'QX9560' does not even exist.

Wer kauft sowas?

Richard, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: Wer bitte kauft sich denn noch so eine CPU für 1000 Euro die 5 Jahre alt ist? Schon mal i3, i5, oder i7 mitbekommen? Da kostet Board+CPU+RAM zusammen nicht mal die Hälfte. Die stecken den mittlerweile bei weitem in die Tasche was Leistung und Stromaufnahme betrifft und kosten weit aus weniger als...
