I was worried but they kept me up to speed with each step of the process via email and even Newegg and Amazon isn't as personal wrt updating on shipping status.

Nothing bad to say, just they have a crappy looking website

Finally, my X3350 arrived, and it's running nicely on the Rampage.

I'm still installing the sofware, so, i had no time to try to OC it, but i'm impressed with the raw performance of the chip & with the stability of the system. Zero problems till now.

I did a quick OC test:

400x8 = 3.2 GHz
RAM 1:1 400MHz CAS3 (OCZ Reaper CL3 Edition)

I did let the bios select the rest of voltages, except RAM (2.4V as OCZ recommends):
VCore: 1.24V, FSB: 1.3V, NB: 1.6V

The system passed wPrime & OOCT without any problem, & CPU was running at 40ºC at the end.

I even broke the record of my own BR2 perlin benchmark at the first OC try
