How to check the authenticity of the processor

Hello,

I am writing with a question how I can check the authenticity of the purchased processor.
Is there anyone who can confirm by the serial numbers of the processor

Re: How to check the authenticity of the processor

The serial numbers should be searchable and point to the model of CPU indicated on the lid. There was a case recently where someone bought a CPU and someone had actually swapped the lid from a Ryzen 3700x onto an AMD3+ type CPU. The pins were the giveaway.

This link from AMD will show you if you have an authentic AMD Retail Box with a authentic processor inside: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/warranty-information/pib-authenticity

Plus you can always open a AMD Service Request under "Warranty" and find out if your Serial Number is authentic from here: https://www.amd.com/en/support/contact-email-form
