Was expecting to see b***n
system builders ….
Wow you know it’s tough business when system builders relay on retail deals.
I'm guessing the warranty is still valid for these "CPU with No retail packaging, Cooler not included" deals?
Nope. They're meant for OEM systems so you don't have any AMD warranty. The warranty you get is whatever they give you or whatever you can get from Australian consumer law.
for whatever its worth.
AMD manufacture warranty requires you to pay shipping to Singapore for warranty.
I recently tried going directly to AMD but decided to contact Computer Alliance instead, but local retailers will decide whether CPU is faulty based on running free test suite online which can be a hit or miss.
So warranty around AMD cpu is kinda worthless, unless you go highend which might be worth the postage.
Not sure if Intel is the same.
How much is to shipping something to Singapore?
via pack and send 92 dollars. I had to send my 5900x back.
Intel pays for express postage to and fro, no invoices necessary as warranty can be based on serial and starts from MFG date should you not have the invoice.
Last time I contacted AMD for a warranty on a 3200G they required an invoice , where I assumed they would go by the manufacturing date
@vanyellow: AMD has gotten worse with it if you read the AMD reddit, Intel doesn't seem to care much. It's hilarious considering the number of AMD RMAs that have had to go on. Zen 3 WHEA problems with new chips (early adopters with new silicon shafted) and Zen 2 with degrading chips (also generally early chips) that result in sporadic BSODs, RMAed my 3700x because of that but Computer Alliance accepted the RMA after AMD approval emails.
@Satirical: How did you test degrading chips to get an AMD approval email?
My system does random reboot/BSOD at times without any OC and all default Bios. Best failing test I could reproduce was Core#2 workers consistently failing on Prime95 (can take a few hours). Memtest no issue, Linpack no issue, OCCT no issue etc. Ran Gpu/psu with another system, all passes…
After sending my cpu/mobo/ram to Computer Alliance, they say they can't reproduce Prime95 failure… So they sent it back and I was immediately able to reproduce again… damn annoying…
@shattered: Contacted AMD directly and I described my problems that was similar to a redditor who kept getting BSODs a year later which was fixed when he RMAed (we both bought 3700x in July on release). The BSODs were sporadic with RAM set to even the lowest possible setting (best just tell them you had stock memory speeds, not OCed at all). Told them I went through a slew of tests and passed but the BSODs were reoccuring. I had switched RAM, switched boards, switched SSDs, PSUs and GPUs during that time, only the CPU was constant. I started to take a pic and note every BSOD that occurred over a month before asking for an RMA and they just accepted it then. But like I said, AMD has gotten worse over the past year especially with the Zen 3 release and I'm not sure if an RMA will be as easy. CA wasn't very accommodating and this was only because AMD specifically indicated that it warranted an RMA. Sold my chip, went Intel. Gave them a chance with the 5900x but I got one of the chips with WHEA errors galore so I'm back on Intel , not picking up anything AMD until at least 6 months after release ever again.
Honestly, tired of AMD.
Ohh man what a mad deal. Missed out!
2 available this morning.
I bought one, so 1 left.
I didn't buy one but just noticed a recent neg feedback for this after checking for stock again. Looks like my warranty question had some merit, unfortunately.
"Processor was not "Brand New" Had bent pins and was chipped near mounting point. Was very poorly packaged."
