Actually at 200 bucks Directron costs more. Amazon has the 8350 for like 190 I believe (actually a double check yields a price of 193 bucks and some change), and Newegg periodically has a 15 dollar off sale on their 200 dollar price. Or at least they did last month when I ordered one for a machine I built for someone, and they did this month when I ordered mine for a HTPC.
But yeah, I feel for you, you lost a processor, but at the same time I'm frustrated you were RMAing a good chip. If you had it at the 4.6ghz in your sig, that was already 15 percent faster than stock. RMAing good chips and graphics cards that are bad clockers just drives the prices up for everyone (including you the next time you every time you go to buy a part). A restocking fee is there to discourage you from sending in working parts, it still doesn't cover the merchant for the time spent handling the returned item and potentially sending it back to the manufacturer, or being forced to sell it as an open box item.
Please, don't RMA good parts in the future, it's hard on every one, even though it may seem like it is victim less. But I wish you best of luck in getting your money back or getting your chip back. I'm also going to remember NOT to deal with Directron in the future if this is how they handle items with pre approved RMAs.
