Apparently newegg got their hands on some fake 920 processors. According to Intel they are rounding them up. Story: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/03/05/newegg_sellin...

Figures, I see it was posted a little earlier. Not going to remove it though. Others may have missed the posts as I did.

When you buy something off neweeg it comes from a number of different warehouses that dont only cater to newegg so it coulda been anybody.

Newegg has nothing to be accused as long as they are willing to offer replacement or refund for those fake 920s.

However, I do think they should take more care of their merchandise source.

No wonder it was not overclocking like it should. Those foam/sticker coolers just can't keep up :p 

The link states they are demo boxes, that would make sense. Kind of like those hallow camera demo units at the store. The spelling mistakes are still funny.
