Submission + - NewEgg Confirms Shipping Fake Core i7s

adeelarshad82 writes: After originally rejecting the story, online retailer NewEgg confirmed that a shipment of Core i7s were indeed fake, and that it had broken off its supply relationship with IPEX, the supplier. Also NewEgg, for its part, said that it already had contacted affected customers, and would continue to reach out and replace the counterfeit parts. As seen in the unboxing of the fake Core i7, the product seems legit at first. It's only after you open it that the buyer realizes that it's fake.
