patience is really key.

i was going to order this a couple days ago total was $128 with shipping, now its $117 in total shipped. Saved myself $11 which i can use to buy a Thermalright heatsink.

If i waited any longer it'd probably run out of stock. These things are $30 below other stores yo get em if your planning on getting a new proc! :D

the cheap ones are OEM's --i think the wiz has som retail ones for bit more.

i think oem's are 30 day and the retail are three years . i just wish i had waited a week--i would have got the 3200 oem instead--lol

yea ewiz kept dropping their oem prices, they have their retail a bit mroe than newegg. Looking at about $29 difference between this oem and the retail. For $29 bucks I think you can easily find a decent fan, and don't oc void the warranty anyway?

yeah if your thinking of OC'ing then go buy the OEM version.

There is absolutely no point in buying retail with warranty which is significantly more expensive when your going to void it anyway in a few days/weeks.

If you plan to OC buy the OEM when use the money you saved to buy a better HSF.

Bought 8 of these. Showed up fairly trouble free.
Looking for the mad overclocker ey? Or stocking up for clients perhaps,

Thats actually not a bad idea, buy a few of these, keep the best oc'er, then easily ebay the others for your money back.

product codes, week numbers, batch codes, etc. They grey it out because it's different on each one. They don't want you to think it's a pic of the actual processor that will ship.

no winchester will have a lower oc potential and does not come with sse3(which does nothing). Its also older.

Ewiz has messed up pricing huh?

hmm i ordered one and expecting it to get to me this week.
i'll post my experience here.

venice are the newer cores, smaller die (can fit more transistors, and make it cooler to run), using the the new SOI technology, which they said could help the chip attain higher clocks.

My o/c kinda sucks because im using a bunk msi neo2 mobo. I bought mine when they first came out and it has been a lemon reguarding high htt :/ I think this chip has more in it though. Im gonna put this cpu in this new dfi nf3 mobo to replace my intel rig but they need to straighten out the bios on that board heh.
