Not for that price. In store pickup only. I'd have to drive 12 hours to get it.

10 minutes from mine. I would like to get this plus the asus p6t motherboard and some tri channel memory for my rig #2 below All I would need for my GTZ cpu waterblock is the 1366 adapter. But I'm layed off and getting uneployment but you know I would feel quilty or stupid in getting this under those circumstances, but sure is tempting, and I just keep thinking about it.:( It sure would make those 4870X2's in crossfire fly won't you think?

Yeah I got it, 245.00 after tax, still not bad, batch# 3838B552. Won't be able to overclock it tell this weekend, or begining of next week, still waiting on other parts.:D

I have that batch, not the best clocking but I got to 3.8. I run it at 3.6 everyday.

What volts for cpu?, What kind of cpu heatsink?, what motherboard you got?, I'm gettin a good dual 120mm feser 240 radiator, for the cpu, it will be on its own loop and radiator mounted on outside of case, I sure hope this cpu isn't a dud overclocker.:)

Guess what thats all I got it to, sitting at 3.78 GHZ. at 1.41 volts, LinX test stable, 7 runs, but it's got a good waterblock and radiator for it. what a dud batch of cpus for overclocking I think. anyways it's faster than my core 2 Duo and the X48 mobo I had at 4.05GHZ, makes these 4870X2's in crossfire even better.:D

Yeah It's happen quite a few times 229.00 then 199.00, I kept thinking about it, but it's just a pain to changed the cpu on rig #2, anyways I probally wouldn't see that much of a difference, as at least i'm at 3.78ghz. Play crysis on very high 1920/1080, really good with these 4870X2's in crossfire.:)

That's a great price and now's a good time to grab one before you're left with the only option being an i5 (and you don't want that).

Isn't the i9 launching soon?

(Q1 2010, that's soon enough for me)
