Something Funny About that i7 processor

I guess I should be thankful that I’m fortunate enough to have several computer part suppliers local to me but I would have to assume that many of you order parts online. If you ordered an “Intel i7” from Newegg, perhaps you should take a closer look. One particular customer noticed something funny about the processor he ordered and made a video about it. As it turns out the “Intel i7” processor he bought was a fake. Checkout the pics. Pay attention to the spelling mistakes. Quite odd that Newegg would get caught up in this but then again if you’re shipping hundreds of products a day, it’s simply impossible to check each one.

The 300 or so fake processors are purportedly from a longtime supplier, D&H Distribution, who will send nasty letters to all those who call them out. Anyone smell a class action lawsuit? I’m sure Intel will be interested exactly how those fake processors were obtained. I guess the wholesale price of those i7 processors were just too good to be true.
