    I recently won a auction on eBay for a new 4800+ Dual-Core CPU. The seller clearly stated that the manufacturer part number is ADA4800CDBOX. I've recieved the chip but the part number is ADA4800DAA6CD.

    Whats so great about the ADA4800CDBOX and why do people demand it?

    Boxed CPUs are the retail version.
    They come with the heatsink and a three year warranty.
    The OEM (unboxed) chip comes bare and carries a one year warranty.

    Yes, you got screwed.
    Hope he bought breakfast at least.

    If you don't want the item, request a refund and explain why. If he/she refuses then report it to eBay. They do care about these type of issues and will will help you.

    If you purchased the item with PayPal you can also get a refund through them as they garuntee any purchase paid for via PayPal.

    Just be sure to exercise some patience and you'll get what you want. No one wants to help and asshole.

    Is it in a box like this:



    If you only have the CPU without the cooler then you got conned but the price difference isn't very much.

    The price difference and the heatsink are really immaterial in comparison to the extra warranty...
