5 out of 5 eggs Have To Respond To Bad Review 12/31/2011

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 95W HD96ZTWFGRBOX Desktop Processor

Pros:

On 12/30 a user who named himself N/A put a one egg review on Newegg because he just can't understand why he can't overclock this chip from a stock 3.0GHZ to 3.7GHZ. Does the fact that AMD motherboards & CPUs are different from Intel ones not enter into your equation? Read all the other reviews and you will note that most of us achieved very substantial overclocks. Admittedly, we probably went to trouble to research AMD component overclocking that you obviously failed to do. ALL components in a system affect overclocking & it is truly a poor mechanic that does not bother to learn how to use his tools.

THAT SAID, WHY RATE A 3.0GHZ CPU BADLY WHEN YOU CAN'T PUSH IT PAST 3.6GHZ?

An obvious bias for Intel notwithstanding, no reasonable person would dock 4 eggs from a CPU that performed up to & beyond its rated Clock frequency.

I know that most Newegg users will recognize that your review has no validity & should be disregarded. This 5 egg review is here to balance your 1 egg one.

Cons:

DON'T BE OBSURD, NO SANE PERSON COULD FAULT THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE CHIPS OR NEWEGG'S VERY RESONABLE EXCHANGE POLICY. THE POLICY IS MEANT TO DISCOURAGE TRY BEFORE YOU BUY SHOPPERS FROM GOING THROUGH 2-3 DIFFERANT MODELS BEFORE THEY FINALLY SETTLE ON THE ONE THEY WANT. THIS SAVES ALL OF US MONEY BECAUSE NEWEGG DOES NOT HAVE TO RETURN PERFECTLY FINE PROCESSORS BACK TO AMD FOR RECERTIFICATION. IF YOU WANT TO TRY BEFORE YOU BUY GO TO YOUR LOCAL COMPUTER STORE AND SEE WHAT THEY TELL YOU. NOT LIKELY.
