@.shreeranga reports will always suggest some or the other fault with nearly every component ever produced "Various users", "various sources", "various reports".
Agreed. He should have linked the sources for all those claims."It's been reported"; "Several users have faced" etc.
Please back up these "reports" with substantial links/articles, and not one-off instances on something such as Reddit.
Would you prefer to buy a new product that has no warranty or 5 year warranty, at the same price? That's the point he was trying to make. Warranty gives you a guaranteed period of operation. If it fails, you can get a replacement.Some points such as no. 9 are nonsensical - CPUs, GPUs, memory and motherboards are hardy components and last much longer than 3 years. Why would they "potentially fail soon"? Would you have any solid statistics to back that claim up?
Paying so much for stuff that is out of warranty makes no sense, it's illogical and nothing to do with being a cheapskate. And unlike mechanical products, it is nearly impossible to ascertain how much life is left in an electronic device or to repair them. So if/when it fails, it's just a total loss for the buyer.I'm sorry, but this sounds like the rant of a cheapskate.
For reference here's what 1 lakh can get you brand new, with FULL warranty and performs WAY better than a 3700X!
R5 7600 + B650M + 64GB + 1000W + same case + similar SSD = 79k.
Use the remainder to get a better GPU than 2070S.
Basically, newer low tier products blow older top/mid tier out of the water AND give you warranty. Unless the seller lists it for significantly lower, there's really no sense in buying at that price. Here's a listing for a 3 month old 7700X +B650m + 32GB @ 50k for reference. Includes warranty.
I feel some people here live in their own bubble and think they can quote whatever price they feel like, having no idea how little their used stuff is actually worth. With the restriction of price discussion on the sales thread, they continue to live in a well and complain of getting low-balled.
If you still feel otherwise, I have a delidded 3770k w/ Liquid Metal + 32GB + Z77X that I can post a FS thread for a mouth watering price of just 99,999 Else you should retract your statement about the new member and welcome them instead.
