The short answer to such a question depends on where we shop. The origin of the CPU in question appears to be a decisive factor in being a victim of a web attack or, rather, a real processor.
We've already seen how AMD has also been a victim of this kind, so these characters seem to be alternating between. In this particular case, adoption scams have been rediscovered in China (what a "surprise"), where third-party vendors have also sold fake processors.
China is also focusing on the beginning of an epidemic: a CPU fake
China and counterfeit are compatible. Western companies spend a lot of money trying to stop their products from being worthless and that their users will lose their money with just a paid product.
The main scam is also the IHS fraud, but now teenagers are moving one step further. Although in the IHS there are only three ways to achieve fraud, in the case of previous cases, this standard has now been suggested for new concepts to achieve fraud:
- A an obvious sticker with serigraphy mimicking the original.
- The original HS is marked on PCB is a trick.
- Original copy of IHS and the laser text mimic the original screen print and false PCB.
If you look at the three options, the cases are found where they interact with each other, making the discovery very difficult in the eyes of the inexperienced user.
Intel refuses RMAAs for counterfeit products
As expected and due to user ignorance, Intel will not accept RMA for a fake product. The problem is that many users who have been victimized by these fraudsters have sent their CPUs to Intel thinking they are corrupt and the answer would not be very surprising: Intel will not take these processors.
Thus, the user loses money and time by buying from foreign merchants. The solution is to buy in both online and offline stores bought from Intel or AMD, for example, PcComponentes or Amazon (sold and shipped by Amazon only).
The overlap depends on the degree to which the mafias match the 2D order and the processor print code with consecutive numbers of 3 to 5 digits
So, its remote access is easy, especially when we're not used to it and we're used to seeing processors from both products.
To find the wrong processor we'll have to look at a few things:
- Socket notes.
- IHS screen type.
- Type of IHS.
- Check that there is no attachment to IHS.
- Check out all the original labels that come as screen releases on the specific IHS.
- Check that ATPO of a box-like processor.
- The FPO And it should match the one in the box.
- Look for your PIN contacts.
As we can see, it's not easy, it's very rare to find these illegal Intel processors, so we recommend that you only buy CPUs from Intel or AMD direct-to-purchase stores, since mafias work outside China with no problem.
