Doing an RMA with Intel for a CPU. Do you guys know if they require a heatsink to be sent in? My chip is retail but I do not have the stock cooler with me. I'd throw in my E6400 heatsink but I'm RMAing a QX9650.
Quoting the e-mail from Intel for my RMA case:
Nowhere in the e-mail does it state to include the heatsink, although the person I spoke with requested some numbers on the stock cooler while processing it. I just said I left it at someone's house and didn't have access to it.• Return ONLY the products approved for return as noted above. (Keep all accessories with you.) Intel will not return unauthorized products.
Anyone have prior experience? I've done an RMA before with a retail E8500 and I packed up an E2140 HSF with it by accident and they accepted it.
