Awesome ... you would count the pins on an LGA package chip.
i think he meant pads
Where in the world did the buyer go to find this.... this seems like the kind of deal you would get in a dark alley....
craigslist? ebay? some forum hosted on a guys basement pc? china? who knows.. (except the seller and buyer) youd think the buyer would say where he got it to warn others... unless he's trolling and the thread about getting a fake cpu is a fake.
I think he was trying to appear smarter than he actually is, as to somehow mock the poor clueless chap who got scammed.
I would be really interested in the answer to... where did he get them; as, they used the term "any of them", insinuating more than one or two.
IMO, he/she may be, possibly, a cop/FBI, Intel Security, bencher, retailer or reseller, because of the last post burrasa had made:
Whatever it is, lookout, there may be a few out in the market.
Meh...back here in my country there's alot of ppl and unfortunately store that can't differ between C2D and a dual core...i once saw there's a store selling an E5700 for a price of E7500 just because the numbers resemblance and the fact that both has two cores in it.
Reminds me of the i7 920 debacle on NewEgg.
I remember that as well lol:
as well as the sad fake Samsung 500GB external drive
Never seen the Samsung HDD rip off before.
it was news from ages ago, not to mention, those fake graphics card labels lol (8400GS cards labeled as 9600GT, 9800GT etc, it shows up as 9xxx card in GPU-Z but when detecting the TMUs, memory and bandwidth it reveals its base is from a very weak card)
It is a LGA 775, Intel Pentium D 805?!?! Code name: SmithField.
If you look at the pin side up. The center is 100% the same as the on the intel forum. notice the 001 also, and the pins match.
Here is a picture of both side the side, under side up:
LOL... poor buyer... but holy crap, that isnt obvious the size of the writing on there is WAY different than others?
To me the scuff mark's from sanding were a giveaway, how can a lapped CPU still have all of it's identity marking's?
Dude that HDD scam look's pretty bad! :shadedshu
maybe using a torch to remove the IHS:
There are other ways to remove the IHS.
