lets not forget the 3930k @£65, same as a 4 core 2600k but with 6 cores plus pci3 express upgradable.
A super bargain. Out of stock but they are usually genuinely in stock at this price.

Always makes me wonder how they end up with stock like this... "I'll be back later darling, just off into town to pawn the kids iphone and this workstation CPU I found in the drawer"

Honey found a random 970 on the floor and what's that ram doing there in the kitchen

Bought a processor from them a while ago. Turned up covered in heatsink paste and was DOA- my motherboard just beeped! Worst thing was my motherboard hadn't worked since and to add insult to injury, when I sent it back to them they refused to refund me on the ground that I had damaged it!

This is a massive gamble guys...

I've said it for a long time, CEX are scum.

I tried to sell them a Moto G a few years back. Handed it in to the testing guy which said it would take an hour or so to checkout.
I went around the local shops to kill some time. Came back later and waited by the desk for a 20 mins or so while he fiddled about with other stuff. I had to prompt him to find out how much longer it would be. He said something along the lines of 'sorry sir, your phone has an unlocked bootloader so we can't accept it'. So he saw me waiting in the store for ages yet said nothing to me.
I hadn't unlocked that. I knew it was ****. He couldn't show me the unlocked bootloader message as couldn't repeat it yet insisted it was unlocked and he didn't make a mistake. A colleague of his said she also saw it yet couldn't describe what the message looked like.

In the end I sold it on AVF for the same price + postage. I'll never again deal with the low life scum that inhabits their premises.

Yeah I'd rather buy from ebay, somewhere with good feedback and a history of knowing what they're doing with electronics. Bought two used xeon e5 2670s and they've both been fine.

I just got an i5 6600 for 140.00, came special delivery in a bubble wrap envelope, all good so far just keep your recipe as you have a 2year warranty

I find it hard to believe a company like cex would invest in someone who could actually test cpu's and have the time to do so, I would never buy a cpu from them

I've used CEX for mobile phones and graphic cards, no problems at all.

Got about 10 cpus from CEX for various builds for friends and family and not had a duffer yet. Had some poorly packaged stuff but nothing has been broken.

someone who could actually test cpu's and have the time to do so

not difficult to do , pop in slot, boot machine, if boots with no errors , fine, if not reject?

I think you're overestimating the capability of cex staff.

To test a CPU properly, you will need to put in under stress and get it to a high temperature for a duration of time. Its under these conditions that issues can occur.

I've got spare pc parts all over the place, cpu's/gpu's etc - I can either ebay them (hassle) or just flog to local CEX? Not really a big mystery. if you sell them old stuff and choose vouchers you get more value for it, which you can then use to buy a cheap upgrade to your cpu or something?

Perhaps CEX dismantle computers people take in and sell the parts separately? Probably easier/cheaper to keep up with warranty claims that way.

I bought a 6700K from them last month and it's working perfectly.

CPU's are very tough things to 'make faulty' - you can usually tell if there's going to be a problem if there's visible damage before it's installed... chips... burn marks, etc.
