    I checked the address of the seller in Google maps, it is a warehouse/storage, not an office. Suspicious.

    Given the amount of stuff they are selling I'd call that perfectly fine. Means they don't have a fancy front office;)

    Alright, got message from the seller - its indeed RAM. They cancelled the order.

    I also got a msg from the other seller where I got one for a few percent less - "stocking error"... not sure I believe that, but also cancelled.

    So the seller i got mine from (which was cancelled) has more stock. They are not to be recommended though (very bad response times to communication), and of course they also sent me RAM instead of CPUs...

    However there are now more similarly priced "CPU"s available, eg on Amazon.

    I'd recommend *NOT* to buy those at this time, as I think there is a major issue with the item description for this - my understanding is that at some kind of source database for EAN or ASIN numbers the description of this particular item was messed up causing wrong titles and descriptions to pop up everywhere (i.e. for all sellers using the same source database).
    Still trying to confirm this with another seller who is more responsive, but their internal system did not show further info either...

    So the other seller on Amazon also sent me the wrong article despite me asking explicitly to double check... no comment.

    I don't think this is coincidence, perhaps sly way of tricking some customers!
