• Hi gbatemp, it's a new day with a new Mystery box!
    Fresh arrived this morning, guess what's inside?
    Hint 1: the main purpose is for videogames but you can do all sort of things with it too.
    Hint 2: IT'S TINY, VERY TINY AND HOT.
    Edit: with a peculiar plot inside :)

    YES, it 's a brand new CPU! 6700K! if anyone wonder why get a new 4yo CPU, especially in 2020, then here comes the peculiar plot :D

    in short my old gaming pc has suffered constant BSOD last month! accompanied with all kind of error messages, desperately i seeked the answers online and I managed to find my suspects: they were RAMs, mobo or CPU.

    The 1st step was easy, there's an office pc which shares same DDR4 RAM, I mounted the suspected RAM (2x8gb) on my office pc and they worked flawlessly. Now things are getting complicate, after i unmounted the coolers and switched CPU 6700k on office pc it didn't turn on, later i found out that my office pc uses I5-8500 a 8th gen cpu, my 6700k is a 6th gen, the motherboard is simple incompatible, and all good manufacturers have already stopped producing ant 6th gen mobo, i had to purchase an preowned mobo asus Z270 from Amazon to test my CPU. -_-

    My suspect was confirmed, my old 6700k failed to turn on on my mobo Asus z270, and i lost all hope, then ready to move on and save money to build a new Rig, this time with Ryzen processor, but later i found that INTEL WARRANTY POLICIES offer 3 years, YEP THAT'S RIGHT, 3 fuckin year about faulty CPU for EU customers, then I contacted INTEL customer service and i got this replacement.

    That's why i got a brand new 4yo 6700k cpu in 2020. AND the whole operation took 2 weeks to complete. A HUGE thanks to AMAZON which provided me a used mobo to make test. (i got my cash back ofc xD).
