Got mine shortly after it went live so hopefully it won't be as delayed as last time.

Day one is usually the key to getting the chip in a reasonable time. As the days go on, they get pushed back quite a ways into the next year. I suspect we have them by the end of the year. Fingers crossed, before Christmas.

Got 50 stupid learning activities done. Guess getting booted off the job today had its benefits! 5930k ordered! About time to upgrade this old 2600k. Been a great chip @ 4.9ghz for nearly 4 years (1 more month!). Longest Ive ever owned a CPU.

Ordered one a few hours ago 4790k

The only thing I don't like about ordering stuff is the waiting game the problem is they add proof of delivery a signature is required so it means someone needs to at home and awake at the same time.

I got a email it was delivered last time around and like 4 hours later the Fex-Ed truck showed up.

It's usually the opposite for me. The notice of delivery comes days after I already received it :D

baller. I told my cousin about this deal and he offered to pay for the 5930k. I maintain all his twitch streaming computers and upgrades and all that jazz and never take payment... Couldnt turn him down really. Now i only need DDR4 ram and a mobo. Which ill never buy for another year or 2 till prices come down

how long does it take to move levels?

I did 50 learning activities. Over three days, but total time was about 1.5 hours. Became a producer right after I completed Quiz 50.
Didn't have the patience to do 100 just to save $15 and risk moving further down the waiting list.

You did 50 learning activities in 1.5 hours?
Did you just get the minimum score required to pass on the quizzes?

If there were 3 questions, I had to get all of them right. If there were five questions, I needed to get 4 right.

As the member said above. Most of the info I knew because I come here everyday.
The other fluff I skipped talking about tablets etc. But the Processor Quizzes were a breeze, many times getting every question right on general knowledge or complete guesses.

Yeah they're easy, if you miss one it tells you just go back and fix it. Also launch two tabs for each one on a different monitor and you can have your reference when you answer the questions. I ordered first or second day and no ship notice.

It's not quite cheating, I think it counts you as having two attempts when you do that. Unless the reading is on another site or PDF. If the reading is an HTML5 scroll, then it counts as a second attempt (which is suppose to be 80% credit, but dunno).

Stick to processors, the questions are easy. The ones that get you are the exact wording often used in sales pitches for tablets and the like.

Anyway, I ordered day one, no shipping notice or delivery yet.
