No. That is exactly the reason why I buy it from Tigerdirect. Newegg, NCIX, and Microcenter all charge sales tax in California. Amazon is too expensive.

Moving PLL from 1.5 to 1.8 did not raise temps at all for me. Maybe 1-2C during Linx/IBT.

Only thing about this is Microcenter is $60 cheaper and you can get 5% off If you sign up for their ads and become a part of there rewards program. So if you go to microcenter today you can walk out with a 3750K $164 after tax and have it today. As long as you sign up for the rewards program.
Edit : nm just noticed its no $159.99 I don't know why I though it was $159.99

Unfortunately I don't have Microcenter nearby, gas price alone negates the savings.

No, and yes. The only real difference is a lower TDP and 22nm.

Related to the thread, I just ordered my new Ivy Bridge rig parts this morning after selling my Fully Watercooled X58 rig, was too much overkill for me. mATX mid range from now. smile.gif

Was going to go X79, then realised that that too would be overkill. Was going to go with Sandybridge, but I thought I may as well wait for Ivy as it was only a week or so away, glad I did. wheee.gif

So it didn't live up to its hype then? I'll stick with my SB build then thank you for the response smile.gif
