    Intel Xeon e5420 - SAMPLE message in IPDT (bought on AliExpress)

    Doomstorm

      Hello! Please help to solve this problem:

      Ive bought USED CPU on AliExpress.

      It arrived and i've problems after installing it (BSODs, rebooting, crashing etc).

      A replaced memory, power supply, videocard, but nothing happened.

      Than ive downloaded IPDT and it said that the CPU is SAMPLE.

      CPU-Z doesn't show any "ES" or something.

      What should i do know? Does this info 100% ?

       

      CPU-Z screen, IPDT attached.

      Thanks for help!
