    Whats the story with the Intel Confidential CPUs?

    zserban

      Hello,

       

       

      Im trying to find what whats the story with these Intel Confidential CPUs. I recently was, i guess, fooled, into purchasing one.

       

      The seller was venting them on this romanian site Okazii.ro - some kind of site for ads.

       

       

      This CPU was supposedly a i7 Intel 4770T in reality despite what was written on it which was „Intel Confidential”, QD7X ES 2.5GHZ, USA, C235A739.

       

       

      I tried to use it, but in vain (even if my MB was suppose to support it a ASROCK H97 Pro4). The computer turned on but that it...

       

       

      I treid to fix it...so i started googling about this CPUs to find what they are actually for testing and NOT for selling at all. Its quite shock since this person was selling many of them...

       

       

      I kinda feel fooled and i wish to at least help other not getting into such a situation...i paid $190 for it....

       

       

      Before i go press charges i would really like to know the legal side from your perspective.

       

       

      Secondly, i want you guys to know about the seller. (http://www.okazii.ro/comunitati/okazia-lui/mirehp.html)

       

       

      Thank you in advance
