    It's still $319 on Newegg and puts this close to the i7-3570 pricing category....

    not bad, but I think the i7-3820 LGA2011 is about the same price. I'd head that way just to have boards with more ram/cpu capability (vt-d).

    Edit: Anyone else getting a '403' error on microcenter.com or is it just me?

    Yeah. I just got the 3770k for 269 which was I think $293 after tax. New egg has it for 330 and Tiger Direct has it for $330. I was going to wait for Cyber monday but thats a great deal for that proc and dont think it will under that.

    Also got a 256GB samsung 830 SSD for $150. The deal is not on the website but it was on the store in Yonkers, NY

    You simply cant undercut microcenter - there is no better price :LOL:
    Wish I had the cash, but its overkill for me anyway. If they dump the price on the i5's I will pickup one (though its already cheap at the normal $170 price)

    I think you're probably hitting the https version of the site. Happens to me in Firefox with the https everywhere extension.

    Right now they are not running the deal.


    I hope this is the new regular everyday price since I read that MC is no longer stocking the 2600k.

    According to the catalog for this month, the $40 bundle savings only applies to the i3 3225 and the i5 3570k.

    In the title you did not add the K and that makes a big difference IMO.

    Yes,

    I would very politely go in and ask to speak with a manager..Explain that you do a lot of business with MC, and considering you are still within the return period, would they kindly extend the discount to you..9/10 this will work since if you were to return it, they have to sell it as Open Box even cheaper, so it is a better idea to just offer you the difference back.

    thanks ccityinstaller. I need to call them and see if I can do it through the phone, microcenter is an hour away but $40 is a lot of money.

    I just went to the Boston store to pick up a 2500k and they still had a handful of 3770k left even though the online store claims it is out of stock.

    Looks like most of the stores are getting stock but my local Tustin California shows 0 in stock on the WEB. I call the store to ask but they never pick up the phone. Does somebody that works for MC know when the Tustin California store will have stock?

    Got mine a few hours ago but my God the service was horrible. Took 15 minutes for them to even attempt to look for the damn CPU. :mad:

    If I didn't have this damn $3 off coupon I would have done their in-stock pickup. :eek:

    Someday maybe we'll get one of these in Portland. Fry's doesn't seem to have the same kind of deals that had 10 years ago.

    Still have not had time to call. Will call em tomorrow. If it wasnt 2 hours from here I would already have gone there but, its not worth the trip.

    Lets see if they can do it over the phone

    Got my money back too. It was already a good deal, now it's amazing. Tiger direct will have em for $250 for Black Friday but even with tax this is cheaper. Proc is amazing.
