Default how to find out how old my CPU or mobo is?

hello ppl

is there any way that i can find out how old my CPU or mobo is?

what i mean if i buy a 2nd hand system, you know most of the time the person who sells won't tell, most of the time they say i use the system for a year or for few months.

so, is there any option in BIOS or anywhere that i can find out the duration that a particular system has been used.

thanks

the first of those motherboards were produced on 2003/8/7, so it must be newer than that

according to my knowledge there is no option on the bios, try looking on the actual board for a batch number and contact gigabyte. Overall, its a fairly new board. How much is the person your buying it off asking?
