Hi all,


Is it possible to check if a CPU is oem or retail ?


I talked with a guy who is selling his 2700x and he said it's retail, but he doesn't have an invoice or the prism fan. He seems adamant about it being retail, but I'm a bit paranoid.

I know intel has an oem check form available where you plop some info, but I'm not sure about how I check on AMDs site, or even if that's possible.


Would anyone have any ideas on how I can verify if it's retail ?
