[Microcenter] I5 2500k OEM - $140 (In-store only)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Intel I5 2500k

Microcenter is selling it again at $140. So for those who are fortunate enough to have one near you, good luck.

This sale just had to happen in the middle of the week with only 6 left in stock, didn't it? -_-

That's OK because the i7 3770K is also $80 off too for $229
Oops, I shouldn't have said that because now when the time comes when I want to buy one, they will be out of stock just like everything else.

Not sure if you're kidding or not, but OEM on CPU's means there's no HSF or retail packaging, it's just the CPU in a tray.

I work in computer retail, well aware. I was just reading the thread title in a different context. The way it was phrased was making it sound like there are non oem manufacturers of Intel chips.

I'm a bit dumbfounded. The 2500K has been out for several years now yet there are no Customer reviews for it yet on Microcenter. Just thought I would point that out.

Not the one you're currently looking at but the retail version got a lot of positive reviews. I know because I was one of them.
