    Beware of Spyboy48

    I have bought a 3770K from our local reputable forumer Spyboy48 that was believed to be faulty,I called him to enquire,he quickly said what's sold can't be returned & the 3770K is 100% ok.Having no means or diagnostic tools to pinpoint hardware error,I proceeded to have all my hardware checked by local distributors,despite having changed 3 different motherboards & 3 sets of rams the problems still persists with system being unstable even at stock clocks.
    Again,I approached him again & this time he told me to google WHEA which lead me to more further troubleshooting,2 weeks studying WHEA & found out nothing,having no choice I sent the 3770K for a full diagnostic with proper software & tools & verified it has a faulty intergrated memory controller after enquiring,this time I again informed him & he said I played the chip for 1 month & refused to replace the chip despite I offered topup to compensate him.One thing I should add is this 3770K totally cannot be set at offset vcore or it will just go haywire & keep restarting regardless of vcore applied.
    This I like to ask everbody,Can u damage a 3770K by applying a maximum vcore of 1.33v with temps maxing out at 71c?I am using this set of watercooling setup,Is this how fair trade should be practiced?

    1.33V is very high. And it IS true that a lot of things can happen in a month...

    See his side of the story soon I guess.

    am dead sure sir spyboy is not those ppl who sell spoil stuff to forummer. if he is into makin money, y not he rma d chip & sell it after gettin a bnib chip? that way he can get more money, don't u think?

    just rma d chip will do. u never know when u spoil d imc coz they're very2 fragile. i once spoil an imc of 3570k loaned from a friend, he was kind enough to rma d chip for me (even though i was at fault). what i mean is rma'ing a chip is not a big hassle, no harm if u send it yaself.

    U bought it in mid December and I brought 2 pcs for you to choose, you choose it, 3770k.
    U tested and play with it, so far there is no fault with the chip...U told me u OC to 4.5Ghz, 4.8Ghz and 5GHz.
    During early January, you said your ram faulty, before that, u tested the Crucial ram 1866Mhz ram
    and I told you your set is a dual channel ram, if you run 4 sticks u need higher Vdimm, if the ram is not well match. True enough, your friend tested it needs 1.6Vdimm, you used 1.565Vdimm.
    So, u tell me why my chip is faulty?
    Please do not slander me if you do not know your stuff.

    Another Interesting thing is, "look at" his trade rep. Btw, MODs please move this thread to Traders Corner.

    Thread like this generally aimed to defame someone.

    Even the trade rep spyboy48 left you on hope your RMA board is good. Meaning you had issues with your motherboard before this chip was sold to you TS. What you trying to pull ?
