absolutely looks more like intel than amd.Looks like a pic of a roughly lapped Intel CPU listed as a 5800x to me.
Ok, full disclosure, that's just a stock photo from the internet.
The 5800X is in my PC but redoing the thermal paste job is a hassle.
But MY SANDING JOB IS BETTER!!
Fine, I'll go take a photo soon.
Instead puts a picture of the wrong cpu with a shitty job."You're paying for perfection" ~ doesn't even post a picture of the final work
lol... I like how they had to add "superior to new" so they can try to justify their price.
Its a used processor and sanding it doesnt make any difference. Lul.
But he used "liquid isopropanol". I mean, that's the good stuff. None of that hard, crusty, dehydrated isopropanol.If anything, it's worse than new as you lost any warranty you might have had on it.
Plus zero proof that his sanding job lowered temps one iota. Gotta love these idiots.If anything, it's worse than new as you lost any warranty you might have had on it.
What proof you need. He seems like a outstanding guy. No reason to doubt him.Plus zero proof that his sanding job lowered temps one iota. Gotta love these idiots.
I don't think you understand what it is we are mocking.
I don't think a blurry reflection shot and a screenshot hiding the individual core temps is going to make you any more enthusiastic supporters than your sleazy car salesman eBay ad did.If you want to avoid voiding warranties, don't sand or overclock.
If you're enthusiastic, then let's have a great time voiding warranties.

Plenty of us get it. I assume I'm not the only one in here to lap a CPU and corresponding waterblock or similar into compliance but as has already been mentioned most coolers are machined to match the convex nature of most CPU lids these days and if you don't flatten both then you may well have caused yourself, or the buyer, problems if not now then in the future. You don't mention what cooling you are using for those temps, you don't show the individual core temps and you don't show a before and after let alone any real proof of the work done or that the CPU you are holding is the one from the screenshot and the list could go on awhile and you top it off with a sleazy ad.That's just the individual core wattage. It's hidden to conserve screenshot space.
If you want more information, just ask.
And sleazy? Of course it's an over-the-top sales description. It's just sanding a CPU.
Either you get it or you don't. It is what it is. If you don't like the price or the item, then don't buy it.
I can't take this serious. Not the lapping part, we did that a decade ago. But this is an actual person trying to advertise his "service" and is not trolling?
What is the standard unit of measure for "gooey" so I know what specs to look for when buying thermal paste?
Smooth or crunchy peanut butter? Original Cheez Whiz or Cheez Whiz Light?Peanut butter to Cheez Whiz.
Or you can do what I do, and put your preferred thermal paste in a cup of boiling water until it's hot.
Then it'll be gooey.

It reflects the [H] logo off my monitor about as well as you'd expect.
Some people really enjoy trolling.I'm trying to figure out if OP is really this dumb or just trolling on ebay. I thought at first it was just some random moron but now I'm not so sure...
Maybe the heatspreader is flat and the image is displayed on a curved CRT.thats not flat, you can see the curve in the [H] logo. take $3.50?
