I didn't mean any offense. I just think that taking off the HSF (or Stock HSF atleast) is a pain in the *** and only results in bruised knuckles.

NewEgg may carry everything, but their prices are not always the best... especially with the shipping.

YOU HAD ME WORRIED FOR A SEC!

But you are wrong, and alas, I am no longer worried. Still $410 at newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103585

Like I said the retailers are getting these processors from whatever distributors have them availible so a price jack isn't totally off the wall, in most cases it'll be the retailer switching distributors which may be more expensive

I see ncix has a few 170s in stock now...I would prefer the 165 as it's $100 cheaper and I don't think 200MHz justifies $100...but I need to get decent stepping or it will be a complete waste so I'm wondering if I should cave and get the 170 or wait for the 165?
