So all the caveats with buying something from China on eBay come with this, do so at your own risk, etc. However it seems Linus bought 3 of them and they were all fine.

The seller, see-ic, has 42k ratings and 99.6% positive feedback. They are listed as,
The processor is bulk new, fully functional and of good quality.

Usually, Chinese sellers sell CPUs/Processors in this condition as NEW.
This processor is 100% not used, not repaired, not ES version.
If you need the real photo of the processor, please be free to let us know.

Supposedly there were tracking chips on motherboards...... but, yeah, this is a CPU.... the effort for the gains here doesn't compute to me.

Anyway, interesting... I just went back to mainstream from HEDT, but if someone is in the market, this feels like taking a chance.
