AMD ANNOUNCED a surprise round of price cuts today, and they are good through the end of the year. They are only on S939 Opterons, AKA 1xx series, but are good on PIB and Tray parts. <br />
This tells me that OEMs shifted to Socket AM2 a lot quicker than AMD had hoped, and there is a pile of parts sitting in a warehouse waiting for a loving owner. <br />
<br />
Upgraders, Christmas arrived early, those tray 170s and 175s look pretty good

</div>Tray is without the Stock Cooler, hence no warranty. PIB is with the stock cooler, and warranty <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

PIB = Processor in Box... I think... it just means retail and tray is for OEMs who buy actual trays of the processors to build in systems.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/b/b1/b1e6e52c_vbattach33349.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b1/525x525px-LL-b1e6e52c_vbattach33349.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:394px;"></a>

PIB are processers in box, the retail version and has a 3 year manufacter guarantee...OEM can be bought from retailers but only have a short warrenty from the seller unless you buy an extended warrenty from them..

PIB actually means Processor In a Box, if I didn't clear that up.<br />
Tray can be bought almost any place where they sell Retail (PIB) processors.
