FAILURE

Looking around NewEgg and their daily deals. Came across a Phenom II 965, and I saw this:

"Maxkillz" (might have to click on the image to enlarge to read it)

No wonder why his CPU died 2 months in; gonna be the same for the poor PhenomII 1100T :(

Searched for his review on the Phenom II 1100T a while back...did the same thing! I'm not sure if he's using the stock cooler or not, but wow.
Looks like his 'Tech Level" is a lie, haha.

By the way skier, you've been gone for a while; what happened?! :lol:

How did he even get it to boot to windows, let alone surf with it? I thing Solitaire would have crashed at 6.5Ghz...
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

didn't really use the internet for a month or so and since I havn't had a single dollar or coin able to escape the grasp of my gas tank in months I havn't been very interested in computers, given I went from a 4GHz hex core to a 3GHz dualcore :oops:

still no money, but marginally more interest in PCs.


and I'm sticking with: 'he' didnt really run that speed

to give you an idea where I live, the only chain businesses within ~50mi is a tiny sears, a tiny walmart, VIP, AAP, a PizzaHut take-out only, subway and Mcdonald's. and a few week ago I got $4 worth of gas to get home, paid with quarters dimes and nickels to give you an idea how much spending money I have lol
