yeah he has probably bought the chip though and done suicide runs.
also he might have sold that chip on after running it at 4.5.

2, it's a blatant scam.
3, it's a motherboard issue. i believe.

Everyone keeps saying the seller almost always loses Paypal disputes; I'm not sure if this is because some people have lost and everyone is stating that like it's an absolute truth or if I've just gotten lucky, but every single dispute I've had on Paypal as a seller I've won, including ones of purely digital sales that are supposedly the hardest to win.

@OP: I know it can be jarring and it sucks to logon and see your Paypal suddenly drained (at least that's what happened to me before), but I honestly wouldn't worry about it all that much. He's had the chip for almost a month and admitted in his original email to running it out of spec. You're fine.

Hmm yeah...4th october....still id say you have enough evidence to prove this is a scam.

I sold an Asus Asus P6X58D-E on ebay in december,pretty much as new and fully working,the guy claimed it was broken upon delivery.

Took him almost 4 weeks to alert me it was "not working"

I got anoyed and refused to refund at first.
But then i thought...well im gona loose anyway so may as well just refund him,but im gona be awkward and make him return it before i refund.

But he wouldnt send it back to me?! lol,obviously a scam!

Next thing i know hes closed the case,i think he wanted me to do straight refund and let him keep the item.

Common scam it turns out.

Ive now ditched selling stuff on ebay as i dont like the way things work with people claiming left right and centre that things are broken.

Paypal and ebay just took the money back from my paypal account 5 seconds after the case was opened without asking me anything or even looking at the case!!

Got it all back but never again will i sell any hardware on ebay.
Not good as i needed the money for sons pressents.

"It looks like the D0 i7-920 you sold to me is defective. I have gone through processor swap and motherboard swap, finding out that the i7-920 you sold me wont allow memory run at @1600Mhz. If you leave the RAM speed below 1500MHz the system will boot only every now and again. About half the time it will go through a double or triple reboot cycle before it comes up.

If you let it boot @ stock speeds (1066Mhz ram) it seems to work ok. Set it for 1600MHz along with the required 1.65v for the memory (and I tested it with Kingston Hyper-X 1600, Corsair XMS3 1600 and A-Data 1600 ram as well to remove that as an issue), and it will just reboot once with an F3 quickly (like when you reset the CMOS) and then pop to an FF and just sit there. Tried another motherboard, same thing.

I think I need return it to you since the cpu won't function normally, as 1600Mhz is officially supported by Intel @ 1.65v (Intels "max" approved voltage for memory)... Ie, the memory controller is defective."


I have run this chip at 4.2GHz for six months before selling to upgrade to an i7 970 and have never encountered the problems that he mentioned. I have used it in an Asus Rampage III Extreme, Asus P6X58D Premium, Asus Rampage II Gene, and Gigabyte X58A-uD5 with RAM ranging from Dominators, Dominators GT, Ripjaws, HyperXs, Patriots and Supertalents at speeds exceeding 1600MHz.

Suffice it to say that I find the problem described highly suspect. Add the fact that he left me no appropriate time to respond before filing a Paypal dispute.

Does this sound fishy?

Would appreciate any comments and suggestions on how to deal with this!
yea it sounds like a scam. and it also sounds like this guy is a total newblar. its not your fault he cant get his ram working right. if it is a hardware problem it is the motherboard not the cpu.

also there is no telling what kind of crap he did to that cpu in a month. i would definately not take it back.

Thread Starter 
He's insisting that the chip is defective and his wanting to return it has nothing to do with the overclockability of it. He also couldn't resist telling me that he has his own golden i7 that he runs at 4.7GHz. Did I strike a nerve there?

I've repeatedly told him that I want him to return the exact chip I sold him before I issue a refund. Guess what - four PMs and he has yet to say yes to that simple request.
