Refurbished CPU: yes or no?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Should I buy it? its a pentium D 930, for 79 bucks shipped. Refurbished but tested to be working. HOW THE HECK DO YOU REFURBISH A CPU?
It would cost so much more to open it up and play around the transistors than to just MAKE a new waffer probably.

So, should I buy? I'm making a budget rig for my lil bro but want it to be preety fast.

Go for it, it's probably a working CPU cleaned up and put back into the box.

True, I don't see too many 930s here, loads of 945s and 800/820s. Try it

Maybe the IHS was bent/damaged/improperly attached so it heated up really bad?

I'd say it was bent pins fixed, but it's an LGA775 socket.. so that eliminates that possibility.

A cpu is either ok or broken mate. The lifespan of a CPU is a long one trust me. by the time a cpu is about to die you would have upgraded 10 times by then.

I would go for it.
