    Ryzen serial numbers



      Bought Ryzen 7 1700x and find out miscompare in serial numbers. Box has YD170XBCAEWOF, when microprocessor has YD170XBCM88AE (which is OEM, non box version) That is normal?

        • Re: Ryzen serial numbers

          Yes that is normal.YD170XBCM88AE is the part number for all 1700Xs. YD170XBCAEWOF is the part number AMD uses when it packages it in a retail box without a fan and heatsink. If you buy it unboxed (aka OEM) it will be referred to YD170XBCM88AE the part number printed on the CPU itself.


          I believe the number below the CPU part number is the actual unique 13-digit serial number. In my case the serial number starts with 9R6389...

              Yes the 9R6xxxxxxxxxx are serial, what serial is on the CPU matches my box label.




              SKU: YD1700BBM88AE

              BATCH: UA 1706PGT

              SERIAL: 9R6xxxxxxxxxx

              The numbers of batch are production year and week.

                  Hi gupsterg,

                  I am not sure if the thread is still active but I looked at your picture: it seems like you bought the processor in a box. However the part number on the CPU showed it's a tray. I noticed because I have a the same situation.


                  I have a question for you: does the SN number on the processor and on the CPU matched?

                      General Info for Ryzen 7 1700X

                      Part Number for boxed CPU w/o cooler: YD170XBCAEWOF

                      Part Number for tray CPU: YD170XBCM88AE

                      Serial Number: 9R6xxxxxxxxxx


                      On my Box:

                      Part Number: YD170XBCAEWOF

                      Serial Number: 9R6xxxxxxxxxx


                      On my CPU:

                      Part Number: YD170XBCM88AE

                      Serial Number: 9R6xxxxxxxxxx


                      Note the same part number, YD170XBCM88AE, is printed on every Ryzen 1700X. It does not matter whether it is packaged for retail or sold in bulk (tray).

                      The part number YD170XBCAEWOF just indicates that the CPU has been boxed for retail sale. It only appears on a label affixed to the retail box.

                      Also note the same serial number is printed on the CPU and on the box label. Every Ryzen 1700X has a unique serial number.
