    Bad I7 975EE Processor - Was I scammed?

    JDuncan

      I recently purchased a I7-975 processor second hand, only to find out it was bad.  While that is a risk you take, I have since been told the guy I bought it from was selling equipment that had already been tested bad and replaced under warranty from a local ASUS repair facility.  Is there any way to determine if the chip I purchased had already been through an Intel warranty case?  This would indicate to me that the guy KNEW he was selling a defectiver processor and it was all just a scam.   Any help would be appreciated.  I have attached a pic with the chip's information.

       

      Thanks,

      James
