24h of prime95 is just a little overkill when I hardly ever keep the same settings & HW in the machine for 24 hours at a time. Used to do the prime95 thing a few years ago but didn't take long to discover it was a waste of time.
I no longer bother myself with neither Prime nor IBT/LinX LOL! I mean I do use Cinebench for stability testing quickly and later double-check with IBT if I have time ... but the thing is that I have yet to find settings that Cinebench proved right and IBT fails (never happened, tried dozens of times)

nope. as far as I know the person/account making the resrvation is the person expected (in person) to pick it up. I've seen an older Asian guy in MC picking something up and complaining the staff didn't give it to his kid (family living at same address!) earlier. policies, policies ... for same policies they will NOT sell two same CPUs during the same promotion (limit one per household) to the same person.

So u will find no binned chips on OCN for sale u have to go to other forums..
Also i bet any 3570k / 3770k they will close ur thread and make u provide proof of how much u paid for it... " happened to a Nexus 7 i was selling"
That is why u do not see any of those MicroCenter 3570ks / 3770ks for sale here and so many else where.. if u paid 229$ rules say u would have to sale it for 228$ which i find rather stupid..
Nobody here is gonna frown at a 250$ shipped BNIB 3770k.. it is a blessing that OCN members who do not use other forums are missing out on.
now I see that I am not missing anything by not even having enough rep to sell over there ... what a joke ...
