Default Newegg Counterfeit CPU Mess Finally Resolved

Newegg admits it shipped fake Intel Core i7 CPUs to customers and is working to remedy the situation. It says a supplier, IPEX, is to blame. Customers received CPU-looking pieces of metal with no pinouts.

Quote:
while fake CPUs were indeed shipped, they came from an entirely different supplier, IPEX. D&H, who does ship legitimate Core i7s, was apparently a perfectly innocent party that became caught up in a mess of upset people jumping to the wrong conclusions.
