Alright, I ordered an:
athlon 1700+
AS ceramique
slk-900
TT 90mm fan
mitsumi floppy drive


I ordered on last monday night, and got it today (tuesday). Decent shipping time I think.

So, I open up the box and see that everything is there with a receipt. The only gripe I have is the packaging on my 1700+.

It came in this little plastic thing, which would have been fine if they had put something like styrofoam or bubble wrap around it, but my 1700+ was just attached with a rubberband.

I understand that it is a "TRAY" processor, but I honestly thought it would have bent pins when I saw it.

I don't think any are bent, or didn't look like it. Just something i think they could improve on.

Mine came like that only with a piece of antistatic foam on top of the cpu and cardboard over that, all held together with a rubberband.

Thats how my 1700+ came from Excaliberpc too. Sounds like you got a lazy packer.

Mine came exactly the same way, it was just floating around inside the box. Although my as3: Ceramique did have bubble wrap on it. I felt ripped, seeing as how i thought i was getting a heatsink...

Mine was in a little plastic tray with foam on top of the CPU and held down with a rubber band.

I checked it for damage but there didn't seem to be any. Now I just got to get the mobo and I can use it.
