Is this thing any good?<br />
<br />

<br />
Is there something wrong with the OEM versions, or are they just as good as a Retail but w/o heatsink?

The only difference in that cpu and the retail version is the retail version comes with a heatsink and fan, the oem is just the cpu. If you have your own cooling then all the better. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

ok, so it's not refurbished, or anything that would warrant me getting something else, right?<br />
<br />
anyone have any opinions about this?

</div>No its not refurbished or anything like that, its a new item. Just doesn't have the packaging or heatsink and fan. You'll get a cpu in a little plastic box and thats it.

I would get retail just for the sticker<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> , but otherwise OEM products are fine, specially for overclockers; once you OC there is no warranty (retail has 3yrs. warranty, OEM has 1yr. I think), and you will be getting an aftermarket heatsink anyways.

it's brand new. OEM means that it's usually sold to manufacturers in mass quantities. Same basic concept as retail, cept without a HSF.

No they don't. When you buy OEM you just the the CPU and nothing else.
