Was my new 2600k used before I got it?? - Page 3

post #21 of 43
this doesnt look right, that cant be the right sticker. I think this has been returned to microcenter and they have tested it, boxed it up, slapped a new sticker on it and sold it again. I would return it

I had the same thing on my brand new sealed Q6700

it ran fine.

The way I see it, it's a win-win situation.

If the chip does not overclock well, you have a perfectly legitimate reason to be returning it (other than it does not overclock well).

If the chip is a beast (overclocks well, aces benches, etc..) then why should you care if (and that's a big if) someone else bought it and returned it? If you find that it's an excellent chip, just stick with it.

My box seal came off without leaving any marks. If it was installed it would have gashes in the sides of the metal where the socket locked down on it.

Maybe go to microcenter and inspect some of the other boxes. If the seals on other boxes look different, return it. If they are the same then it's probably good to go.

Thats a good idea!

Honestly it's unlikely that it was used before, but you should probably return it. Otherwise you'll likely end up thinking you got a used or even semi-ruined chip everytime something goes wrong or if you can't get the OC as high as you think you should be able to.

I don't mean that to be any sort of insult so please don't take it like that, I'm just meaning that if it's a concern to you now, it will always remain a concern to you, even if it's just in the back of your mind.
