Here is a bit of the story, I have a buddy who works at Best Buy and he was able to buy me an i7-3770K for 91.69, a very good deal, but because he is part of this program it could take up to 6 weeks for it to arrive. I have been browsing other forums and people are saying it is taking 15 to 25+ days to get there product. I have a question that I would like to ask the community:
1. Could I buy a i3 from amazon.com and be able to return it in 30 days if I have installed it on my motherboard? I would clean the CPU with a fast drying solvent(IPA, Acetone, Methanol) so it would look brand new. Could they tell if I have installed it on the Motherboard?
The reason I need a new CPU is I just got done with a completely new build that all I need to do is install the cpu and the heatsink and boot it up.
