3770k without warranty for 200 euro?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, I can get a secondhand 3770k for 200 euro, it doesn't have a warranty though. Is this wise to buy or is it possible that the processor just craps out on me after a few months of use?

Couldn't I get warranty from Intel with a serial number when that happens?

CPUs never really gets broken unless you want to.

 

I would go for it. 

 

I have yet to see a CPU being RMAd to be honest. İt is very very rare.

 

Also Intel can help you with serial number if something goes wrong.

Yeah buddy go for it.

 

As I said, CPUs are the hardware that barely breaks down. You must be extremely unlucky.

 

I would stay away from GPU, soundcard, motherboard, monitor, mouse, keyboard or stuff like that if they do not have warranty.

 

But things like Computer case or a CPU, I can care less about the warranty.

 

Just my 2 cents.

Yes Intel has the ability to check warranty info off the serial number. It'll be based the date the chip is shipped to the retailer and not the date the cpu is purchased, but that's usually only a couple month difference tops.

Buying used CPUs is risking though, because they usually don't overclock well. I know I've dumped 6 bad clockers on ebay and kept the best one for myself.
