Default Re: Fake Intel CPU's! Have you been affected?

do these fake chips even work or are they just dummies? I could understand if someone sold them as intel clones but not trying to sell as the real thing. The blank book should send up a red flag in any sensible person's mind. I'd personally buy one if they were marketed as clones and were under 100$. Also I wonder if there were any benchmarks or comparisons to the real i7
