Hi all,

Very tempted by this myself but in case it helps anyone else, these prices are near £100 cheaper than anywhere else. The 6700k is cheaper than their listing for a regular 6700! I know its CEX but the processors come with a two year warranty!!

i5 6600k only £150 too - thanks hakamans

Used not new item

Can you still claim on the warranty if purchased from CEX?

cex provide a two year warranty on pc parts, so you can return it to them

i5 6600k for £150 there too, plus £2.50 delivery, beats the Amazon Warehouse price from earlier this week. Very tempted to upgrade from a i3 6100.

Hence why I mentioned two year warranty and you can return to store for refund if not happy, also better than buying from random person on ebay

Yup 2 year warranty is icing on the cake, thanks again

Purchased. Heat added!

I've never used CEX before. What's their warrenty like? Some aren't worth the paper there written on and company's use any excuse to weasel out of giving a replacement/refund.

You managed to answer your own question in the statement above. I would imagine they will sit their flailing and waving their arms demanding you to prove that you didn't overclock etc.

Why would anybody trade these in? Very new tech and i suspect that might have been OCed already and damaged.

The 6700 and 6600 have been out for a year and a half, people may have traded them in against other gear?? Hence again why I mentioned two year warranty...

People usually trade in to CEX because they need the money, not because they attempt to set the world over-voltage record on their chips.
Regards to warranty they will just replace no fuss in my experience.

Plenty of positive reviews also with 'verified order' on there.

Good deal but I find it hard to buy used computer parts as someone who works in computer repairs/servicing.

If you saw some of the pictures on my phone of the insides of computers of smokers/filthy **** you would be shocked! I've seen maggots,vomit, urine and blood. The wrost is the smokers though. The nictoine infused smoke gets into everything and forms a sticky stinky layer, then all the dust / skin / hair sticks to it and soaks in even more second hand smoke. Often times it can be so deeply embedded in the materials it's nigh on impossible to get out even with specialist cleaning agents and techniques. Unsurprisingly smokers machines are voided of warranty with certain companies, Apple comes to mind.

That said a CPU is usually "ok" and the disgusting computers are maybe 20-30% of the overall quantity but still, it's enough to put me off lol.

Regardless, heat added as most people would never know the difference, although if you suddenly catch a whiff of fags it might very well be your lovely CeX CPU cooking up a nice stink.

Any thoughts on a suitable HSF for this at stock?

Oh my! Must resist! Need need mobo then ram if I get one of these but i7 6700k I want as more future proof

Any heat sink at stock is fine, depends on the space in your case

Cooler master Hyper 212 is a good go to all round, but any will do.

Hyper 212 is a decent cooler

I bet Cex pay all of £60 for your unwanted one. (_;) They have outrageous mark-ups on tech. I do realise they have to make a profit. But they push it to extremes.

They sent me a cracked processor which was nice. They send no processor with a heat sink, I know K don't have one anyway. They were fast at swapping out problem ones though. The packaging is hilariously bad. Just a brown paper bag, seriously.

Worked though and got a bargain

Well your a happy bunny,

I got an AMD processor from CEX and it was brand spanking new with heat sink and fan in its original box. CEX are ok for some things.

How can any Intel chip have bent pins? They don't have ANY they're all on the motherboard. Besides if they sent you an AMD chip with vent pins they know they'd get it straight back so hardly likely to happen.

I agree with the disgusting state of some people's computers especially smokers but I've never come across a problem involving a CPU

They're a pawn shop, what do you expect?

Really, so they just bought a £250 quid processor and sold it to CEX for £95? CPU's are specialist items, you would rarely buy one out of curiosity I wouldn't imagine, then the MOBO, ram etc etc.

Each to their own AND yes there is a decent saving to be had.

Possibly selling stolen, stripped down and desirable PC hardware?
A personalised build on the counter may arouse suspicion, but a fancy CPU turning up in a jiffy bag is obviously legit

CEX have always been pretty good with warranty in my experience. Have bought many items from there and had to return two, both of them being phones. An iPhone 4s with a faulty battery 2 months after purchase, swapped with no questions asked, and an iPhone 5c with a dead screen a year after purchase, swapped with no questions asked again. They are good to due to the fact that you can buy items online but then if need be,they can be returned to a store and there seems to be more of them popping up around the place all the time.

I tend to avoid CEX since I bought an external drive that arrived with more disk errors than valid sectors... because it could be written to when "tested" by the returns staff I had to argue with lots of sceenshots from Crystal disk etc to get a refund.

not willing to take the risk with this value of item from these con merchants

Must depend on shop, any drives I've traded in they've always ran HD testing software on them before accepting

Actually, you can see on their website exactly what they will buy any item in for. This one is £96 for cash, or £136 for a store voucher. Can't get more transparent than that.

No worse markup than many store make on goods.

very good deal indeed, even better if you have CEX voucher. Last time i bought a £200 voucher for £165 cash on collection, it can be used online or instore.

Yes except for the fact they will clean it before they put it on sale... forget our brain today did we?

No need to get snarky, I've seen "refurbished" items from much more reputable outlets arrive in a less than desirable state. Sorry if my post upset you, Merry Christmas!

Really should have used in the title.
