Forgot to add, this is retail so comes with a HSF which should easily up this to 4x2.6ghz+ without trying so long as your case has half decent fans.

I thought this was a good price, cheapest I found elsewhere from froogle was £210+

Normally I'd say HOT but:

Looks like they've decided to price drop earlier than the reported 22nd of July price drop - I'd be wary of buying any of the Intel Core Duos before this sunday as the Q6600 are set to go half their price in the US - we might not be that lucky here but what's a few days wait?!?

The other core duos are also reported to price drop too so very exciting to see what happens next week.
#3
Rep given though as I don't want to come across as a wet blanket!!
#4
Indeed the price drop is $260 each in bulk orders of 1000.

So add VAT, profit, distribution and other costs.

This is still worth a try not to mention getting it weeks before everyone else as Intel do this price drop/new products every summer who don't have the new price/products until August/September
#5
This supplier lives just down the road from me and there's forever more people queued to return stuff than buying (I've done so enough times over the years, all in the name of trying to save a few quid, but I don't even bother now because it's not worth the hassle).

Voted cold I'm afraid (had it been practically any other supplier this would have been a hot deal)

sorry!:oops:

Chocs
#6
I've done a couple of orders without problem.

It would be interesting to have comparison to the likes of eBuyer as I doubt they as are as bad as them.
#7
I guess it shows that no matter which supplier it is, some people will have good and some bad experiences of using them.

I've ordered from Ebuyer a few times and actually never had any problems with them.

No I don't work for them :p :-D
#8
Unfortunately the amount of negative comments will always be disproportionally large compared to positive comments, hopefully people will realise this.

Anyone with any basic knowledge of their consumer rights and the procedures of RMAing etc shouldn't have a problem.
#9
great price

rubbish company
#10
If anyone has ordered can you tell us your location, which deliver you chose what the delivery charge was please?
#11
Yeah Good price but wouldnt touch that company with barge poll :O. Going to get a new system with a q6600 and a 8800gts card.
#12
Hell will freeze over before I buy from these cowboys again!!:x
#13
most of their stocks not instock
#14
It takes a lot for me to bad mouth any company but these jokers don't deserve any business from anyone. I live locally and over the years I've tried this lot now and again just to see if they have got any better, each time they seem to have gotten worse!!

Forever telling me things are in stock only for me to arrive there and low and behold "oh no sorry it wasn't in after all". I nearly dragged the spotty little **** over the counter on my last visit. Please for the love of Intel avoid!!

Cheers

Dave

£160 IN BULK PER 1000, add distribution to wholesales like computer2000, add costs, add profit margin, at VAT, still makes this £170 very good wouldn't you say when other retailers will and do have it for £200+
#18
It is a good price, but this company has history of advertising stock that they do not have. (they take payment immedately anyway).

So long as you are happy treating this as a pre-order then all should be ok.

After monday all shops will have them at this price.
#19
This company is based in my home city (coventry).

They can be quite reasonably priced and have even done an internet price-match for me and have allowed for me to collect in-store.
With that said however, they won't win any awards for customer service. They are insufficiently staffed, they are sometimes abrupt and they always keep people waiting in-store.
Avoid if you can, but otherwise be aware.

possibly, but as it's a dell it's unlikely. Do you know the motherboard model?

The prices quoted by that article really suck - dabs.com has been selling the E6600 for £138 for a while now so its got to go cheaper than that...surely.

not sure really i'll try to find out
thanks
#24
Tray price will be $266 which is just over £130 for 1000 units. Larger retailers (ebuyer etc) buy direct and have very narrow (under 10%) profit margins on CPUs (if you don't believe me compare the tray CPU prices (+VAT) to the actual retail prices). So £160 seems a good guess at what the final price will be when the price cuts come into effect - I haven't used eclipse myself but I think I will wait until the big players include the price cuts (should be within a couple of weeks).

just wait until monday when the price cut is official, scan will be selling this for about £165.
#30
Personally I'd go for a e6750 instead - faster for most uses, and they seem to overclock insanely.

Of course, if you do heavy 3d rendering or video encoding, quadcore is great.
#31
For half the price of the E6750 you could buy a E2140/E2160 - you can overclock them to 3Ghz+ (and for a cost of around £50-60, that's insane value for money).

Still waiting for a more reputable company to drop the prices of these C2Q's though and i'll be ordering straight away - it's worth noting that, although these can overclock around 3Ghz+ they supposedly run very hot, so it's not very easy to push them on air.
#32
Just to add, I have used Eclipse for years, and have personally had no problems at all with them. Not saying no-one has had issues, but I personally have had none.
#33
Hi, Good price for Quad-Core. Wouldn't touch this company either. Very bad experience with them.
#34
I paid £230 for this about a week and a half ago. Bit annoyed ... Good CPU though
#35
mr.shed i am truly glad to meet you,i figured one person in britain had to be satisifed with eclipse.terrible company who put up stock levels drawn from thin air then take money and nothing.

seems they spend a fortune on advertising but seem to forget about the customers.

reasonable price abysmal company.

Thanks to smokedog for the link, explaining the official price cuts from Intel.
#37

You want the 4mb cache models makes such a large difference, [Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 (1.86Ghz) would be better and overclock that. But I would like quad core as newer games will take advantage of 4 cores and i have heard that these beast can OC to 3Ghz which is quite good just need decent cooling. I usually run loads of stuff in the background anyway. Can't wait to build my new system, was going with a GTX but i found a 8800gts BFG OC on ebay for £170 and these come with lifetime warranty :) best price in the UK. Which will do me just now till the G92 cards come out cant wait for the PCI express 2.0 cards come out.
