That's the retail box too, so very cheap.
OEM is £1 cheaper if you plan on using an aftermarket cooler.
EDIT: Bah, OEM is OOS, typical.

You have to use the link provided by Scan on their Facebook page to get that price: http://bit .ly/jhyJig (remove space)

It's only a small saving over their regular price (£163.40), but still worth it for such a chip.

Thanks crackerbear. The link worked at first but I think a mod maybe changed it thinking it was spam?

Here's their Facebook page with the deal listed: http://www.facebook.com/ScanComputersInternational

Good deal, definitely the CPU to get for the moment as a gamer with sense as well as money
#5
This is a usual price for this now not hot at all, the CPU is great if not the best and beats extreme edition CPU's but the price is normal.
#6
I bought this for £153.59 on TODAY ONLY on 27th May
So not a big deal at all

That's nice, where's the cheapest place to buy it TODAY?
And was it the retail box you bought, or OEM? I'm betting OEM.

This is usual price for the OEM version, not retail...

Word of warning. The OEM edition only comes with a 1 year warranty where as the retail comes with a 3 year. Just not work getting the OEM, even with a £20 saving (for example) Standard price now so not voting.

Brilliant value CPU - easy to overclock as well. Running this at 4.5GHz aircooled with minimal effort.
#11
it was like £152 the other week and some major ebay seller was selling a load of them for £145 delivered, fluctuating a lot, if you wait a bit you'll get it cheaper.

These are definitely the best CPUs to get at the moment for price/performance by a huge margin.. make sure you get a good p67 motherboard too and you can also overclock like crazy.

To be honest.. if you didn't know that the chip wasn't compatible with the Mobo, i'd do a lot of reading before considering an upgrade... else you will waste your time and money.

This is the going rate, bought one months ago.

The retail box was NOT this price 'months ago'.
Why do people keep spouting crap?

Anyone recommend a decent Motherboard for this?

STONKING PRICE! Heat added.

Depends if you're going to overclock it or not. If not, you can get a decent H67 mobo for £75 or so. If OCing you want a P67 like the MSI one above, the ASUS P8P67 is pretty good too.

Most people will say it's a good idea to overclock, since you can get past 4ghz with little risk with these chips, but you'll be surprised how many people run at stock speed.

warranty from intel means nothing..have you ever tried RMA a cpu... get the oem if cheaper..
#25
I'd go for a P67-GD65 MSI with this, I've easily over clocked this at 4ghz at temps around 35-40 and when not overclocked at 20-30
#26
I went for the Asus P8P67-M PRO, a budget microATX (small) size board, got it overclocked to 4.7GHz easy.
MSI's mid to high-end boards are good, but their budget boards have difficulty overclocking.
#27
Yeah I got this for £153 (retail) a couple weeks back too, with a free game too. If you're not in a rush to buy this keep an eye out on Scan's today only deals. Recommended to purchase the Hyper 212+ as well, again keep a close eye on the today only deals.

I'm not entirely sure, I managed to get an MSI P67-C43 for £84 and it was a breeze to overclock. If anything Asus' mobos appear to have the most problem regarding failure rate.

Edit: are you overclocking with the stock fan or an after market cooler? I've got mine at 4.5 with a Hyper 212+ but not sure if I should go any higher..

Edited By: fret on Jun 08, 2011 11:35
#29
Wouldn't touch current Asus mobos imo.

I would stick at 4.5tbh, is there any need for anything higher as well as that it will decrease the life of the chip.

What does it mean if they are 'unlocked?'
#33
If it's unlocked, you can overclock till your hearts content, if it's locked, overclocking will be relatively more difficult, without much of a performance gain.

It means you can overclock it, the CPU multiplier is unlocked so you can crank it past the default frequencies.

1 yr warranty OEM, 3 on retail, youd be mad...

They have been around this price for months, to high if you ask me in light of all the concerns with hardware DRM and dodgy mobos.

Link please. Cheapest retail 2500k I find on eBay is £170.

Also I love the "3 year warranty isn't worth it (because it's intel" BS. A friend of mine fried his CPU out of his own negligence - chain smokes, PC full of black dust, attempted to run his PC with the heatsink dangling off. Not only did Intel straight up replace the CPU, but they sent it out before I'd even returned the fried one...

Ok just looked and there dont seem to be any right now. I picked one up last month for £149.99 with next day courier delivery. I would wait for more to come up on ebay if it was me though.
