My i7-2600k has the K in cpuz... Do you have the newest download of it?

Also look in the Windows system properties. Should show there as well.

If you want to know which cpu version you have.
Go and enter bios.

My Cpu does not say i5 2500k in the bios but i am able overclock to but only ratio 41 will not go any furthur and Cpu Z says 3.8 Ghz i feel like i have been scammed

What motherboard does the build have? This could be occurring because its using a H61/H67 motherboard?

also something I didn't think of, good question.


Haha thanks, I was kind of taking a "shot in the dark" myself. But it seemed a plausible possibility.

How about taking the hs off and checking the print on the actual chip, that way you at least know what it is

they said to just bring it in anyways and they replace it but im 2nd guessing doing that might be lot easier buying the CPU due fact they probably make me wait some what 6 weeks something stupid like that

I'd take it in then, but be aware of what they intend to replace it with, if its the K like you paid for, fine, if its a straight swap for another 2500 plain, take it to a higher level of complaint
but don't hand over your chip at any point unless you have a replacement in the other hand

I'd make sure they know you need it then, express implicitly the importance of your rig to you and your work,
and also express your great sense of anguish at feeling like you have misplaced your faith,trust and money in what you had previously thought to be a fine reputable company
lay it on and make them feel like they have fkd a great friend over, if they're half a decent company, they'll throw in some 'goodwill gesture' hehe :) 
fingers crossed for you mate,

You make it sound like you bought it from a shady place that definitely didn't make an honest mistake. Why did you buy it from them?

Wow, I understand that there are some bad places out there but in something like this the first rule is remove the HSF (heatsink/fan) and check what is on the processor as far as the Sspec#. With the Sspec# you can go to http://ark.intel.com/ and look the processor up by the Sspec#.

Still, identify the chip so you sell it as the right item,
I hope you get a decent price on it,
Although it wouldn't be my course of action I wish you all the best man

ok so i went further up and told them my issue through email dude said. if they don't fix it on spot get them call him so i'm going go in tommo or Friday and do just that

he said exactly this

They should be able to unless there is an unforeseen problem. Tell them to give me a call if there is any problem.

Yup, looks like Bob there has a 2600k to my eyes :) 
as I said though, check the codes on the chip before you put it in the box and take it back, just to doublecheck/reassure me :p 
and yourself ofc hehe

so is it true Ivry bridge is only going work on Z68? if so some people going find way crack it on P67 both use same architecture and same socket so all i can think of is Bios so ... flashing it to a hacked version could be possible due to fact Z68 have same socket and is works with SB so...

Glad to hear it's sorted :)  Out of curiosity - What did the shop say when you took it back? Did they give any explanation as to WHY you didn't get what you paid for to begin with?

I do not know the specifics of boards in particular I am going to look that up for me as well. I do know that it will be LGA 1155 the same as SB is now.
I think it will be on the newer LGA 1155 boards for sure and only a select few of older boards, but I have to research more.
check out the SB, SB-E and Ivy thread..



hmm it says it work on P67 bords as well as H67s but i don't think PCIE 3.0 will work i think on Gen 3 bords get PCIE 3.0 and from what i can gather next cards that come out next year support 3.0 PCIE but even now the cards don't use full potential of X8 X8 2.0 let alone x16 x16

What he means is the whole 'graphics cards dont saturate pcie2.0 debate' I figure
and yes Op, its a case of waiting till pcie3.0 devices come out, personally, no rush for ir :)

+1 to H70 should be great ;) 


Id be tempted to splash a little more and just go with an XSPC Rasa kit :)  The overall performance should be better, the overall appearance will be much nicer, self satisfaction guaranteed following a successful water-cooling installation :)

I think it's time for you to head on over to the water-cooling section of the forum :sol: 

Hopefully I'll have chance to join the club myself following some planned upgrades next year :)
