    No the reason i found it funny is because i have moaned about it before and i was told it wasn't a problem. I dont mind the odd spelling mistake but sometimes posts are ineligible and i cant understand it, i realise not everyone has English as their first language.

    Here is the thread.

    it isn't a real problem, it's just a load of people looking for a way to moan about something which honestly doesn't matter as much as they say it does, there are also quite a few reasons why people double post besides just laziness, so an automated script like they're suggesting could cause quite a few problems anyway

    Just been offered a 2500k for £115 but its unboxed and i just asked if it was still in warranty. Dunno if i will take up the offer kinda worried incase i get stuck with a CPU that in a week or something dies and im down £115. Someone didnt pay and i ended up being the next bidder or something.

    It's unlikely that a CPU will ever die without being severly abused. CPU's are the only thing I dont care about warranty with as I've never broke one!!

    You should either snap it up or let one of us get at it :laugh:

    And hello everyone!
    KieranD says thanks.

    So your saying i should go for it? If i was that uncomfortable with holding onto it i could easily re sell it here on tpu but im now kinda crapping it incase it comes DOA or something is wrong with it.
    EDIT: Ebay for a brand new in box phone, i mind a while back you where looking for a phone before you went sandybridge Freedom.

    I get more value for my 2 phones if i exchanged it - Hence going to CEX going for an Arc S on ebay could be quite expensive

    They may offer you less by like 2-5 since there in-store price is different to online.

    Okay after reading a little more the seller that offered me the 2500k sold one last month and someone left feedback today, "Postage could of been faster and better packaged. As described tho." They dont have any bad feedback as a seller or buyer.

    If I happen to find one laying about :roll:

    Yea I think it's well worth it. I'd have it without the slightest hesitation if I had the dollar. If it was any other piece of hardware (mobo, RAM, etc.) I'd think twice, but not a CPU. I've just searched to try and find a 2500k that's been broken by OC'ing, LN2 etc. and I can't find one.

    Have any of you guys here ever had a CPU DOA? Or a CPU break on you ever? I haven't, but I'm not hardcore OC'er. Thinking about it, I bet IC's broke a fair few...

    They're just taking the mick now. Deliberate price hikes just because of limited availability. Shame on these e-tailers.

    Well, the first chip I would put down to severe abuse, but am I reading it right that the replacement ended up faulty aswell?

    Oh and scam, if you happen to come across an iphone 4s or Xperia Ray - Let me know and we can talk business :pimp:

    and you said price hikes but you didnt say that they jumped to over £200! that F3 used to be £40. if they increased the price to £60 or 80 - fair play, but over £200???? they have no shame

    Managed after 3 days of trawling google shopping to find an external 2TB drive in Ire for (90euro + 8euro shipping (£84) and it has shipped, I had placed about 3 other orders from different online sites for them all to cancel on me. The HDD is a Seagate XT 2TB, might just sell the enclosure on ebay.
