I wouldn't get parts on eBay.

That's where all the overclockers sell their trashed CPU's.

it depnds on the part. I've bought a couple of things and had no problems... but then other have gotten burned... Like The general said... all the crazies (OCr's) sell their components to upgrade... if you do buy I would suggest something form one of the ebay stores that will sell it new...

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70 LUX rgb
NZXT Source 530 / i7-8700K / Corsair H100i v2 / ASRock Z370 Taichi
SM951 M2 256GB / 850 evo 1TB / Seagate 2TB / WD 2TB

I'm getting a new pc build [most parts] off ebay, and have ordered them. Here's a few tips you may find useful..

- Find Items which are new and still in package [ Obvious but some people miss this ]

- Look at their feedback, if it's a high number [over 100] and it's 99% - 100%, then there's a low possibility they're lying on anything [ i.e condition of the item]
