Did I get the wrong CPU?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I ordered a i7-4790k and an ASUS Impact VII directly from Amazon for my new mini-ITX build but when I opened up the box this is what I saw.

Non of the seal are broken, but obviously something happened. I've already contacted Amazon about it, but I was wondering does stuff like this just happen sometimes or is there something very wrong here?

That's very wrong. I would RMA that thing. Link us to the page of this on Amazon. As the above post said, the box doesn't look "genuine", although it could simply be a factory messup with Intel.

Yeah, I don't know how that happens or how unluck you have to be but you're going to have to RMA it.

Good luck rma that thing thing. u just got fd. There gonna claim you are trying to get over on them. That's why I avoid mail ordering when ever possible. That's why I only go to microcenter and new eggs will call. Ebay/mazon is my last resort

My wife is good at yelling them into submission when it comes to that stuff but I don't wanna be bothered with that

Looks like someone bought it, took the i7 out and placed in a celeron, the returned it.

 

im affraid, that this is exactly what happened here.

And im also affraid that Amazone damm well knows this..

 

I also never buy stuff directly from the internet.

I call a shop and just drive to it. :)
