    Reported fake Intel CPU sold at Newegg (first build ever - i7 920)

    So I decided to get things rolling and document my progress through my first ever build, not to mention my new rig since my one from like 2002 just died and it was going to be more of a hassle to get her working again for shoddy performance.

    soo... some stuff from the egg came in today... maybe half of what i ordered..
    ill post those pics later but first i want to show you guys this.

    That's wild, wonder what happened there?

    Sucks you have to wait, i hate waiting, especially in situations like that.


    Well done on the documentary though, it amused me greatly

    I didn't even realize this when I was first looking at this. So someone bought a 920, and then made a replica of the box (with typos), put a fake processor and fan in it, and then returned it to Newegg??

    That's terrible!

    Hey Who'd have thunk my bosses would have found a random thread on a forum I'm a member of.

    We had 5 of these over here at my work yesterday. Guess I should've come over here to see if anyone else had it first thing.

    I promise I'll do that next time

    Also, I posted some pics on another forum where a member of newegg customer support has an account at. He sent me a PM regarding this. I referred him to this thread for you.

    if i were to guess, I'd say this stuff was switched by the case at the very least.

    The amount of effort taken to fake the packaging, heatsink, and CPU is far too great to just do a couple switcheroo's. This is probably someone in a warehouse or shipping facility swapping things out a case at a time.
