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
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).
