Microcenter's 1 CPU limit question
Is that 1 CPU per day/week/month/year/model/etc?
Anyone know the specific limitation to these?

1 CPU per trip I believe, not sure how they could keep track any other way?

what I will say from my expereince, is that on launch day- I dont think there would be time to come in and get one and walk out and back in for another.
on SB launch I got do Dallas MC at open went straight to cpu's and almost didnt get one. Your only hope would be to order at midnight- and get a confirmation, then go in the store at open and try to get one as a walkin-pay-then make a return for the one you pre ordered.if it screams, crank it. if it cries, kill it

One per day, they have your details on their system so they can see when last you bought. You could have multiple alias' to get pass that if you are desperate

Or just bring your lady/brother/friend/etc etc"I just picked up some Vaseline and a big syringe. I'm thinking using the syringe will make it easier to put the Vaseline in all the little hard to reach spots. I'm hoping to get to mess with it tonight, if so I'll post some videos" Convicted1

Thanks guys, makes me wish I would have bought 2600ks when they were on sale

Hmm, I was told one CPU (regardless of model) per person per month.
Then again, it was the same manager who didn't let me stack a 2600k coupon with the z68 motherboard combo, so maybe she was a bit stricter.[HEAT] -

Are they that hard to get that I need to strategize in order to get one?

I went back about a week after launch day to pick up a second 3770k (pre-ordered for in-store pick up after work) and the register threw a flag on my account saying 'check user address'. Fortunately it looks like the cashier didn't know what was going on and still gave me the sale price.
