The product is not used, but I would not the be the original buyer, so would it still be under warranty if i had all the paperwork and the box it came in? theoretically, if it broke could i send it to intel and they would give me a refund etc?

Never seen a processor break. Except in one really old Pentium 4 based server.

That being said it should still apply if you have the receipt

I think all it would come with is the packaging and the stuff in the box, I don't think it comes with the order invoice or receipt....

I currently have an i3 3220 so have this paperwork. but what does this mean for me? do you mean if it broke i could get them to repair, replace or refund me?

The warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product. So where you bought it second hand there is no warranty. Here's a quote from Intels warranty information "THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT MAY EXIST UNDER APPLICABLE STATE, NATIONAL, PROVINCIAL OR
LOCAL LAW, APPLY ONLY TO YOU AS THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF THE PRODUCT OR COMPUTER SYSTEM THAT INCLUDES THE
PRODUCT AND LASTS ONLY FOR AS LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO OWN THE PRODUCT. WARRANTY COVERAGE TERMINATES IF THE
ORIGINAL SYSTEM CUSTOMER SELLS OR OTHERWISE TRANSFERS THE COMPUTER SYSTEM WHICH INCLUDES THE PRODUCT"

thanks, do you think that it's worth buying the i5 for £90 instead of £163 without a warranty? thanks for the helpful replies everyone :-) it is new.

If the seller offers a refund/replacement for DOA items then it would be worth a shot. But if it is being sold as is with no chance of a refund or replacement I would avoid it. It very rare for a cpu to fail.
