    Newegg shipping fake Intel processors

    Article made me laugh : forum link at Newegg Selling Fake Intel CPUs - Newegg Selling Fake Intel CPUs | [H]ard|OCP

    In a nutshell, NewEgg received (and sold on) a large shipment of Intel i7 920 processors - the boxes were badly faked with typos everywhere, the heatsink is a lump of synthetic material with a picture of a fan stuck on top and the "processor" itself is a badly moulded lump of aluminium/solder
    Mistakes happen though - however Newegg themselves made the biggest one by saying "sorry, we accidentally shipped a load of Demo units" - these are far from demo boxes or units, they would just be boxes, not intentionally padded out boxes with fake instruction books, typos on the box etc
