I dont like posting aria deals or using them much, because of their delivery charges and antecs, but on this rare occasion, this product, including the delivery charges, is atleast more then £15 cheaper then anywhere else i have looked, so ive decided to post it. This also gives you the opportunity to pick up other bits and bobs that you usually wouldnt, because of the delivery charges. Its obviously much more hotter, if you live in Manchester and can go pick it up yourselves.
I have been looking for a new cpu for about a week now and was going to take the plunge with the x3 8650, which is a slower processor and has not done as well in benchmarks as this processor, for around £63 from ebuyer. I then come across this, which is £90 + everywhere ive seen, even ebuyer do it for £90.99 (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/149208)
Its also a black edition, which means its multiplyer will be unlcoked for OC'ing, and some have managed to get it to 3ghz per core, stable (http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardware/Reviews/amd_phenom_8750/12.html), and since its retail, it comes with 3 years manufacturers warranty and i think a heatsink and fan?
This can also be used on some AM2 boards, with bios updates, please refer to your manufacturers cpu compatibility list if you are unsure.
