please post a link to the ebay auction and a picture of the processor.

use an image hosting site like imageshack or photobucket (among others) to post the image. Make sure you resize the image to something like 640x480.

CPU looks fine. AMD's stock heatsinks, unless they are the ones that feature the copper heatpipes, are rather bland boring hunks of finned aluminum.

It's strange that there's no included certificate of authenticity, but it's been a while since I bought a retail boxed processor, so AMD may not be including them any more.

you should be ok, even though the seller doesn't accept returns, if your CPU is defective, ebay and paypal both have buyer protections in place.
