Re: Aurora R8, Experience of Buying

I looked up at the clock and it was past midnight. All I did was sleeve 3 fan cables and played around a whole lot in placing the Quadro controller. Perhaps it's one of the most masochistic way to mount a fan controller and connect 3 fans to it. That's why it took 2 hours. 🤔

@Dell630i : I'll cogitate on your questions in the morning. Right now in my state of mind, everything seems like Greek to me too.

https://supporttickets.intel.com/warrantyinfo Plug in those numbers from the box? I can’t see the batch number clearly.

Thanks for the link. Looks like a very full 3 year warranty.

🤓the iPad doesn't allow me to click to embiggen. Looks like we're all good that this boxed processor is genuine, unless seller has a very skillful way to slap on labels.

Hot air gun.  But I mean you'll be able to tell if it's genuine as soon as you plug it in. Are you worried they slapped a 10980xe IHS on a 10940x?

Re: Aurora R8, Experience of Buying

Most likely just trying to make a quick $250 a pop by selling them $500 over cost.  I'd only worry about something like that if you bought from like say someone with 0 feedback as a seller, or the new member icon after their name and a couple small value feedback.
