"In an almost surreal tale of events, USA electronics retailer
Newegg has discovered a reported 300 counterfeit Intel Core i7 920
CPU's in its inventory, some of which were inadvertently shipped
out to buyers!
"Initial reports of the fakes began yesterday when at least 3* 5
separate incidents totaling 7* 9 counterfeit processors cropped up
on Youtube, HardOCP and the Overclockers.com forums. The recipients
of the fakes had all purchased the CPU's from Newegg.com within the
past few days."
