Buying used I5 3570K for $130?

I'm planning on buying a used Core I5 3570K and I'm meeting him in person. He said he has had it since thanksgiving but just now assembled it together after Christmas but he is needing a upgrade because he said it wasn't strong enough for what he was doing so he's selling this slightly used 3570K.

He said it was only used to run a server and was never overclocked.

I'm buying it for $130, should I go through with it? I mean if it was crazy overclocked and he had it for like a long time I wouldn't but this seems like its still basically like new .

What do you guys think?
