SOLD but side note, can someone tell me what part of the cpu the "capacitor" is, and should it be removed?

There is only one X5680. It is true that if you search for "SPS-PROC WSM 3.33 130W X5680" you will find people trying to rip you off. All you need to do is go to the Intel website, where you will find the truth.

You can find this processor at all the usual credible retailers. Search "X5680" instead of the line of nonsense.

Can be bought anywhere for less than $1700 new.

Please show evidence of places where you can purchase this processor for $1700 or less.

Sure.

Now, if we are talking AUS$ then it does go up a bit of course.

(they may bump the price if you call)

You can sell these for AUS $1500 and may get interest, but you cannot claim that they are $60% off. At best they are 25% off.

If that is the case then why is it when you search for "SPS-PROC WSM 3.33 130W X5680" you cannot find any selling for less than $3000?

Are you certain it is the same processor as the one you listed in your links?

Well for starters that picture is from the other side of the CPU. Secondly, the image in the link I gave is probably just a stock picture. Unless things have changed recently Intel do not use heatspreaders that look anything like that. However the product code is the same as the one that shows up when Googling the product name that you stated in the OP, as well as the product code that you stated in your Gumtree ad.

Hahaha...a refurb part peddler picked a fight with two moderators!

Well at least it's fun reading about the X5680. If the i7-2600K had dual QPI buses, I bet more than a couple people would be building dual chip builds for bragging rights.

I'd wish you good luck with the sell OP, except that it seems like you're trying to rip people off...either that or you honestly think a close-up of the bottom side of a processor is something special. If that's the case, sorry for being rude--but google your part a bit before you try to sell it.

http://gyazo.com/58c2a2178defa5794e5f6ac29e88dd28 is picture of the other side. So how much is worth then?

With the retail box and documentation, $12-1400 USD might be possible.

You need to understand the market for these things. People who already have Xeons and are looking to upgrade. They have servers that HAVE to be fast and stable and they are willing to spend as much as needed, so things like a warranty and piece of mind are very important to them.

$900 USD for an unused OEM CPU possibly. Considering there is no support or warranty.

Sold them. Can I ask though, which part of the cpu is the capacitor?

There are no capacitors on a CPU.

It's amusing how many times I've heard eBay CPU descriptions say the CPU is in good condition except for a "broken capacitor".
