When Ryzen first launched in 2017, there were a bunch of returned processors that just had Intel core i5s or Pentium 4s stuffed in the box, because the return staff can't know everything about how each processor is supposed to look, and they're generally on min wage with lots of "this # per hour" kind of metrics put on them.

So, this is a great price for this, but just make sure to check it as soon as you get it.

When I got my Ryzen 1700X, the motherboard didn't arrive for another couple of weeks, there can be any number of reasons someone sits it to the side waiting on a mobo deal or whatever.

Just trying to tell people to verify what they get when they get it. There were documented cases of Amazon stock being contaminated where people were going to extreme lengths even rebranding the CPUs to look like they had AMD branding on them.

Yeah sorry matey, guess it's just late and I'm needing bed :-)
I always send back some bit of broken junk when returning an item, Amazon don't mind in the least because there are always fools ready to pay near-retail for it through Warehouse.

It's as simple as reading the text printed on the chip and googling it, or comparing to a stock image. Hardly rocket science. I've found similar issues with RAM at cex.

You don't get a physical invoice so, proof of purchase would be on your amazon account, don't think it mentions used or warehouse on there on bought items

Damn, have you ever seen that before. Re the warranty info link:

"Q. Is the warranty for my AMD Processor-in-a-Box (PIB) still valid if I use a different heatsink/fan (HSF) other than the one provided in the PIB?
A. No. The limited warranty shall be null and void if the AMD processor which is the subject of the limited warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided within the PIB."

Damn I've never taken note of that before lol
