    "FPO" = Serial Number / FPO also on the paper box? / Paper seal on paper box?

    Tobias_Claren

      Hello.

       

      1.) The "FPO" (5. line before "E4") is the unique ID/serial of a I5 4570?

      2.) The FPO number always has 8 alphanumerical characters?

       

      3.) I can also find the "FPO"-Number on the paper box?

      4.) Is there an example image of the seal?

      5.) Can I see the "FPO"-Number of the CPU through a window in the sealed box?

       

      6.) On the paper box is a not removable (only breakable) paper seal?

       

      7.) Is there any through a package readable RFID-Chip on or in the Box?

      7.1) If yes, which frequency? 125kHz, 13,56Mhz, 868Mhz, 915Mhz, or...?

       

       

      Thanks,

      Tobias Claren

          I understand you have several question regarding retailed processor box. See answers below:

           

          1.) The "FPO" (5. line before "E4") is the unique ID/serial of a I5 4570? Remember that the FPO is a batch number, so identifies a batch of processors of the same model; however, is not unique neither the same among processors of the same model number.

          The only unique/serial number is the ATPO of the processor.

          2.) The FPO number always has 8 alphanumerical characters? That’s correct.

          3.I can also find the "FPO"-Number on the paper box? That’s correct. FPO or Batch number is called.

          4.) Is there an example image of the seal? No, there is not.

          5.) Can I see the "FPO"-Number of the CPU through a window in the sealed box? Yes, you can.
          6.) On the paper box is a not removable (only breakable) paper seal? That’s breakable paper seal.

          7.) Is there any through a package readable RFID-Chip on or in the Box? No, there is not. Only the information provided on the metal surface.

            7.1) If yes, which frequency? 125kHz, 13,56Mhz, 868Mhz, 915Mhz, or...? The processor frequency is 3.2 GHz.

            7.1)

             

            No, I meant the RFID frequency.


            These were common RFID frequencies.
            So no RFID chip.
            Too bad. I meant no official RFID for the customer.
            I meant in general whether a RFID is available.
            For example, for internal purposes by Intel or trade.

             

            Or also with special security motherboards used to be.
