RE: Question about replacing Inspiron 530 MOBO

I've been buying used processors for many years, so far never had one that failed.

Providing there 30+ day warranty, to guard against a DOA processor, you should be fine.

Very rarely do processors fail, unless they have been 'fried'.

Regards to anything labeled 'Refurbished', to my way of thinking, that's just a better sounding name, for 'Used'.
