    Sell it to CEX for £211. Doubt they check them beyond visual inspection so as long as it isn't charred from over enthusiastic overclocking it should be accepted.

    Though I presume their stores are now closed so may have to post it to them where they may have a proper testing set-up, whereas walking into the store relies on the staff there having much of a clue and kit to check it with.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    It's not that bad - it just doesn't play as nicely with the ddr memory I have than the 3800x I was using before I installed this chip.

    It may be a moot point though as it seems Scan have screwed up my order as what I'm seeing on their website doesn't match what the email lists...
    merely at clientco for the entertainment
