Is there any difference between intel retail edge cpu's and the retail ones?

example to many 4930k are being sold for 450$ ~ $500 while retail stores sell it for 580$ ~ 620$

all the intel retail edge cpu's are using the same batch starting with 3331b5xx, this specific CPU's could be bad in OC ?

does it worth the 100$ more to get a retail CPU from newegg or amazon over those retail edge CPU's?

They are the same, the only difference is the buyer paid considerably less for them so they can still sell them for less than retail and get a profit.

You have to ask yourself if it's worth saving ~$100 for no warranty. Pretty sure the warranty isn't transferable.

Save your money. Warranty is void anyway when overclocking. It's the exact same chip.
