GWBush said: Missed out on the $200 MC/Staples PM of the 4770K so this is merely a consolation prize though it's almost like pouring salt on the wound. Still, I need a new rig. I41&TYOP I heard someone mention that LGA2011 means a specific Motherboard is needed. Way beyond my scope, I just post the deals . If true, hopefully you take that in to consideration.

Good deal on CPU but price the LGA2011 boards.... Expensive and older technology.... Its what kept me from going with LGA2011 in the first place.

I was wondering why the box looks different... Still, it can easily be returned.

If you're buying this, plan to spend another $250 on the motherboard. Not so encouraging.

Though its labeled as a 4th generation cpu(haswell) its really an Ivy Bridge. Either way its fast and worth the money for anyone that is going to max out 8 ram slots; 2011 MBs tend to be overengineered anyways(thus the $$$) so no need for Intel to update them.
