Ah well, try what I said earlier about maybe them waiving the restocking fee in return that you'll buy your i5 from them. If they refuse, buy elsewhere.
It's worth a try. I've read posts from people who talked to Newegg CS and managed to get the restocking fee waived.

I mean, really all you lose is 10 minutes talking to a person.

That's the point. The UK has way better statutory rights when it comes to distance buying. Better shipping times and rates too, one of the advantages of a small country...

Oh, and the Distance Selling Regulations (DSR) allow return for any reason within 7 working days from the day after receipt of the item, not 14-28. Any individual retailer might allow a longer time at their discretion, but they are not obliged to. More information can be found here, it is well worth a read if you are in the UK.

I don't know about Newegg, but I know TigerDirect does not charge a restocking fee if the item is not opened and they accept returns w/in 7 days of receiving the item. The only thing I've ever had to pay when returning an item to Tiger was the shipping, so I would imagine Newegg is the same, if you don't open the processor, they should accept the return w/out a restocking fee.

Generally (having spent many many years in retail) a restocking fee is for the company to recoup any loss from the item being opened and having to see it as an "Open Box" but if it is not opened, they generally don't charge the fee. Like I said, don't know about Newegg, but I would call and check. <--my two cents.

i7 is called a 2600k
i7 is considered generally pointless for gaming purposes, better off saving money and going with the i5 2500k.

Hey guys, I went ahead and got the 2500K, and once they deliver the CPU, will refuse delivery and send it back for a refund. So thanks for the advice =]

Can't wait to go 5ghz on my Quad!
