View Full Version : AMD X2 retail packing terrible...

I got my 4800+ today. And I have a small complaint about the packaging. I know that it is similar to the packaging of all other AMD CPUs out there, but I have some minor complaints about it. The green material that the CPUs are packaged in, is very bad. It is very fragile and leaves off powder on all the stuff around it. When I got my cpu, it had that green powder inside the cpu packaging itself, and most importantly on the heatsink thermal pad. The pad was literally full of the green stuff, and there was no way I could remove the powder without removing the pad itself. :mad:

My Athlon 64 4000+ came like that too. The foam holder thingy actually just fell apart soon after I removed it from the box. Pretty cheap.
