Axe? And its Microcenter, and its a 2500k not 2500. And that was a temporary deal for the 2500k at $100. I doubt its still going on.

It's not K so just send back and if they refuse, then just file a PayPal claim. What's always best is to assume that the seller is not malicious until proved otherwise. Mistakes happen, so just be courteous and peaceable, kind and considerate, unless the seller proves to be malicious or refuses to fix their mistakes. This makes the whole experience much better.

Microcenter always sells them all for much lower prices. You cannot buy online to get those prices, because the manufacturer demands this. If you are near a Microcenter, then go over and get one from them!!

No they dont. They have deals that last for a week. And you can always order them online for in-store pickup. I highly doubt they are selling i5-2500k's for $100 on a regular basis. This was a BF/Thanksgiving time special. Thats still normally a $200 cpu.

The whole month they have had 3770K for $230. Last month it was $269. Normal price is around or up to $100 more than Microcenter at any given time, in general. Currently 3770K it is $259 at microcenter. Lowest price anywhere else right now is $330.

IN STORE ONLY is the point. They are not allowed to sell online at those prices, and will not under any circumstances.

You are not understanding my point. I know microcenter well. Yes, I know they have many deals on cpu's all the time, but it varies week to week. The $100 price was not their normal sale price, it was a special. Trust me, they arnt going to have 2500k's for $100 year round now lol. That would be a fairly dumb business strategy. I dont know what their cost for those cpu's are, but its got to be close to the $100 mark, or perhaps even higher...

And I am well aware they are in-store only deals. They always have been. I dont see why you are pointing that fact out anyways. Everyone knows their cpu and bundle deals are in-store only.

Agree; just saying that they will be the best price almost 100% of the time, if you are nearby one to pick it up.

Dont go ivy unless you plan to de-lid. Provided u get a good chip which is more than likely the case youll get more performance and better thermals out of a 2500k. Only go ivy if you plan on using integrated video.

This post contains bad advice. Ivy performance surpasses Sandy performance. Yes, Ivy runs a little warmer. Not enough to make Sandy a better buy. And what exactly does integrated video have to do with anything?

A 4.7 to 4.8 ghz sandy is most certainly faster than a 4.3 ivy. If he plans to use integrated video as his main display ivy has a faster gpu.

Yeah, Like for like maybe but not a 2500k vs a 3770k. HT makes a difference no matter what overclock the 2500k has.

All Ivy chips can hit 4.5 - 4.8ghz...

Also ive noticed alot of the new games taking advantage of HT.... running tests now..

We all know BF3 does... But so does Max Payne 3 sleeping dogs and im gonna test some others aswell.
