Amazon sent i7-4790K instead of the i5-6500 I ordered

Sorry, this probably doesn't below in this subforum, but I wanna know if I should open to check or if I should just call about it and send it back. Only the sticker on it says i5-6500. The box itself and the see-through plastic over the CPU say i7-4790K.

To whoever downvoted me for not wanting to sell an i7 I didn't pay for, you're a scumbag. and so are the rest of you who think it's okay to do that.

Idc about the points though. It's the fact others disagreed and think it's okay to keep and sell what they didn't pay for. Thanks though~

Just call customer support, they should be able to help. Stay safe and look up their protocol for a wrong product. As long as you explain your situation, they shouldn't have an issue.

I'd just send it back if you don't want it. I worry about grey market items on Amazon though I always figured CPU's were a safe bet. Maybe not...

Good on you for your honesty. Karma has been acquired and will be reaped. You should come out ahead for it.

Do you already have the motherboard and ram?

I have the motherboard, no RAM yet. Bank is giving me problems with spending limit so I'm not sure what's ordered, what I have in my bank ect. I just know what I have now and that I need to call to see my transaction history.

I'll admit, I'd personally return the motherboard...

Well if you don't want to keep it, if you don't already have a motherboard and drr4 ram I don't see why you wouldn't since you get a AMAZING deal for it, I would just contact amazon.

I have the motherboard, but not RAM yet. RAM is on it's way. I'm gonna call soon

Id take the i7-4790k for the price of the i5-6500, and just get a board for it, sometimes Amazon messes up and there's nothing wrong with that.

Hey, you never know, they might just say keep it and send you an i5-6500 as a "Sorry, we messed up" gift.

It's very rare I have good luck, but yes. I don't want the i7 though :P I know it's better, but I didn't pay for it and I just want the i5-6500. And even though Intel makes a lot of money, I'm very firm with my beliefs and it feels wrong. (Feels wrong to sell the i7 because someone messed up the order)

haha sorry, no. If I gave it to you, then I can't return it for my i5.

I wish xD Pretty dumb if I call and say "I got the wrong CPU, send me the i5 as well." They say: "okay" Huge nope.

Only a sticker shows it's an i5-6500. The box itself and the CPU chip say i7-4790K.

I know the i7's quite a bit better, I just don't want it. and I know they make a lot of money, but I didn't pay for the i7 and I don't want it. :\ I know a lot of people would say it's dumb, but I'm very firm with my beliefs and it feels wrong.
