The color of the box a product comes in always affects my buying decision.

At least someone's got their priorities right. It's all about the sticker. thumb.gif

No really, why else would you buy a 3960x over a 3930k or a 4960x over a 4930k. If it were a 980X that'd be different...

I wonder how ASRock sold more motherboards in those simple silver boxes.

BTW, Market Availability of Core i7 "Ivy Bridge-E" Series - i7-4820K at $330 sounds like a good deal.

Nice, looks like newegg doesn't have the facts straight though:  

Cooling Device

Heatsink and Fan included

Got my 4960X yesterday.
The box does not have the word "Extreme" anywhere on it.
The box contains the CPU and the installation guide. No heatsink or fan.
The sticker is the plain blue Core i7 sticker. No black or "Extreme Edition" anywhere.

It figures the one time I decide to splurge for an "Extreme Edition" CPU and I get shafted. Thanks Intel.
