Buying CPUs for Cheap - Page 2

Ask him where he got them first and ask for an invoice

Ok so I ended up going through with this deal.

Got the 2 chips today. The markings on it show that they're intel X5650s which is good.

The weight to them seem to be real enough for an intel cpu, and everything looks good as in brand new.

One concern I have is that they seem to have the same serial number, is that normal?

do you have a motherboard you can test them in? If yes, ask him to come over and test them in your machine... They could very well be DOA or fried and cleverly cleaned up without alcohol...

sorry i haven't seen your latest post, but you bought them already... I don't think the serials should be exactly identical, nothing is anyway...

I don't know if the serial is unique for every cpu or for each batch. If it's the serial of a batch it's ok.

Pretty sure that's the batch number on the CPU. There are hundreds, if not thousands, that will share that same number. If he bought them together then its quite likely that they came from the same batch.

That's the batch number. There are another 998 CPU's that share the same batch number as both of yours.

Ok, thanks for clarifying guys.

Someone else said it was a serial code or something which was why I thought it was suppose to be unique.

Did you test if they worked, before you paid for them?
