:santa2: Greetings OC'ers.

I need your help. I'm searching for a cheap Q9550 / Q9650. My findings so far:

$235 w/shipping - Q9550

$250 w/shipping - Q9650 (Refurb)

$307 w/shipping - Q9650

Microcenter has 'em cheap, but I don't have one near me.
Maybe someone on the forums has one they want to get rid of?

P.S. Please do not suggest getting an i5/7. I already have a 775 board, and I'm skipping 1366 / 1156.

Yeah, it's too bad the Microcenter deal is in-store pickup only. Do you have any friends living near one? The Classified section here might be an option once you are eligible to view it.

How much is the Q9650 at Microcenter? I wonder if someone could mail it to me. *rubs chin*

Don't you have a Fry's out there in Vegas? I'd be surprised if they don't have a similar in-store dealio.

You can always posted a "wanted" ad in the classies..

Quoting you again... you only hit 3.06 ghz? I'm at 3.4 ghz with the stock HSF. I think I'm running into some board issues as anything much beyond 400mhz fsb bombs regardless of the CPU multiplier :(

I only just installed the chip yesterday. I like to run my computer a week before I start a more serious OC which I plan to do. And I'm not using the stock fan..:cool:
