Intel Warranty/5960x Confusion

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Its been a while since i bought my 5960x brand new, so i forgot what it looked like brand new, i need some help here. I warrantied a 5960x and was told id get a brand new one factory sealed.

They sent a CPU they said was new and factory sealed that clearly wasnt. They are definitely different types of boxes than retail, that doesn't matter. But when looking at what they sent they are either dirty, stained, smudged, scuffed and scratched.

I dont have any motherboards to do that...until the rampage v edition 10 comes back in stock (who know when that will be) im waiting on an RMA for that....lol


And they stuck me with a advanced warranty so im kind of obligated to do something, i cant just sit and wait

I would grab a mobo somewhere that accept return and try them out worst case scenario. If it is perfectly fine then I don't the reason to return it.
