Several readers have mentioned the strange goods that some customers received from Newegg in place of the Intel Core i7 920 processor they ordered. Word on the problem first surfaced on TribalWar on Thursday evening. Newegg still hasn’t commented on this. It’s not known whether it happened as a result fraud by another Newegg customer, in shipping, or where. The “processors” are made of aluminum, and the “fans” are some kind of synthetic molded material. The “factory seal” was printed onto the box; the holographic stickers on the boxes were also faked. The first part of this video shows the bogus goods. At this writing Google News lists a handful of blogs mentioning the fakes.
