Question about buying a used CPU

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I saw a CPU today at a local PC component store and I thought it was really cheap. It was a Phenom II x6 1090T for $50. It was used and there was a note on it saying "Lock issues".

Does anyone have any idea what this means? I asked the guy who was working there but he said he didn't know and that he would ask the manager and call me back tomorrow. If it isn't a big issue, I will probably go back and buy it.

Edit: I forgot to mention that it did not come with the stock heatsink

Not a clue but for 50 bucks, who cares? Try it out, and maybe you can RMA it through AMD for a nice new one in case it's faulty.

Don't think you need it.

Ask what the issue is?

'lock' issue? maybe you can't overclock it?

still for $50 go for it

looks like it could be the 'lock-up' issue - google it

seems there is a fix for it - so I reckon you might as well get it and see if you can fix it

EDIT: seems the problem mainly occurs with amd chips and nvidia gpus

so if you go for an ati/amd system

$50? That's a steal. If it doesn't work you could just resell in here on OCN for somebody else to gamble with. I guarantee if you posted the same deal here that it would be gone in an hour.

yeah but, do you need the stock heat sink to send it in like intel does?
