    @Partick: Hopefully they will just send out the missing items; like you say, time will tell.

    @Partriot: Were you talking about QS/QK/QH in relation to my comments?

    If so I have never heard of QK or QH.. I just know the Intel Processor Identify software, and CPU-Z, shows it as non-ES/QS, and it has the full instruction set, and was Stepping 2, and Revision M0. So that is good enough for me; it works 100% fine.

    @ElBerryKM13: You must realise that this seller is selling substantially numbers of CPUs.

    For instance, the E5-2683 that I bought, this seller has already sold over $100,000 worth of these chips. A very quick glance at just some of his chips and it shows sales over $300,000. Which for Ebay is quite large numbers..

    I think perhaps the seller just got confused over the previous order, and personally I would expect them to resend out replacements for the missing chips. When you are selling $100 of thousands of dollars worth of chips it does not really make much sense to rip someone off for a few hundred/thousand..

    I am guessing they have fully audited stock levels and therefore will be able to see quite clearly how many got sent out. And it would be madness for them to lose clearly a very good customer such as Partick.

    When I had a problem with out of country CPU seller and got no/wrong/missing item(s) I had to actually file a police report (locally, stupid) and then submit that claim # to ebay, and then ebay refunded me the $$ for the items that never showed up but showed as delivered. This was a different seller that had 100s of great feedback selling CPUs and then once I got mine he got near 40 negatives in 1 month!!

    You should post their username, so we can all avoid them.
    I guess like your example shows, the past is no guarantee for the future.
    Hopefully in this case it will all work out professionally.

    This man speak the truth. Unless the seller makes it right he will have to file a police report then open a ebay buyer protection case.

    Missing CPUs ended up arriving in a second package from a NY address, not via an expedited delivery. Not very happy given the extra time but they arrived.

    I purchased 2 CPU from them, this morning , the seller sent me a message to inform me they have oversold and have no stock.
    Want to issue a full refund.
    Funny thing, they sold 4 more CPU after I purchased my 2 CPU.

    No a big deal unless I need the 2 x CPU.

    My 2683 v3 arrived in really good condition, no directly visible damages below, just a few light scratches above. Works great.

    I've used xtrememicro once for a pair of E5 v2 xeons and had no issues, I was also looking at a weird x5679 cpu for my mobo, a z8na. he came straight back and said it would not work as my mobo is limited to 95w cpu's and the x5679 was 115w.

    As always everyone's experience is different.
