Well I received my new to me E8400 today from Zlojack.
I have not had a chance to try it out yet as I am waiting for a new Mobo and Ram to come in 1st. One thing is for certain though, if 1st appearance is anything then I got a great deal.
The E8400 arrived carefully packed in a 1 cubic foot heavy duty cardboard box, inside was stuffed to the brim with packing foam cheezies offering extream protection from the brutal treatment Canada Post is known for. After digging through the foam cheezies I found the CPU packed in it original package in pristine condition. Opening the package I was amazed at the condition of the gear. The thermal past was not even disturbed, still perfectly intact and ready to be mounted, the CPU itself was almost spotless, you would never have known by outside appearance that this chip had ever been installed on a rig. Also as promised was the original documentation and receipt.
Fast, prompt, professional. Every moment of my 1st internet purchase site unseen has been excellent so far.
Thanks Zlojack, I will do business with you any day.
