Hello, everyone.

A few days ago I bought I7-8086K. When I turned it on, CPU-Z showed as Pentium Gold G5400 !!! In BIOS too. The motherboard is a MSI B360M MORTAR. The question is where the problem, the motherboard is wrong or the processor is wrong or is fake ?

I already brought it back, but I'm sure he is a FAKE! I found a similar case in a forum : https://www.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/94mhi9/8086k_issue_detected_as_8700k_bios/20190218_223847.jpg20190218_233951.jpg20190218_225459.jpg
