the cooler has been nerfed from the 1600 which actually had the beefier spire cooler. don't expect to OC above the boost speed 3.9 with the stealth 65w tdp cooler.
Haha, nah I've never worked for CEX. I just think that dismissing them based upon some preconceived notions of quality is a mistake. This is HUKD after all, we're here to hunt down bargains without prejudice of store clientele, or personal hygiene (cheeky)
... and which store do you work in?? ;) it's a good point though. Their two year guarantee policy is pretty good to be fair.
I agree there's definitely a lack of diligence in their product identification and testing procedure (for certain item types), but this can be made to work to your advantage. (undervaluing due to misidentification) Moreover if it doesn't work, or isn't as advertised (their strict grading definitions work in your favour in this instance), simply send it back. There's absolutely no risk.
I would never buy anything from CEX more than about £30. The guys testing the stuff are clueless and wouldn't know the difference between a CPU and the CPS. If anyone wants to got used, Amazon Warehouse deals are the best. Cheaper than CEX and generally just open box returns.
