These guys REALLY need to open up another SF Bay location with all the Intel CPU B&M only deals they have.

Just be sure you get a new 1150 pin motherboard. The new socket design is, however, compatible with existing 1155 heatsinks.

So true, I actually considered writing a nastygram to the property owner at their old location, when they refused to be reasonable on a new lease.

As Futurama would say... shut up and take my money!

Yeah seriously! What's in the old Micro Center building now anyway? I'm guessing it's either still empty or another Asian market-type grocery store.

Intel is starting to annoy me. While I love the processors, I hate that they change the pin layout with every revision. Makes me woner if there is some collusion going on. Good price on the new processors though and Microcenter is dropping $40 off any compatible motherboard to boot.

I believe it's still empty, shame. I got my sandbridge+mobo combo from there on BF..., amazing deals. Google maps still shows it as being a MicroCenter....

Intel had to change the pinout to improve the power performance by integrating more voltage controls on-chip.

I know because Intel is a partner with my company. No, I don't get epic discounts. Often times, they treat us like dirt and make us go to Fry's to buy chips.

Anyways, this is probably the last generation of chips anyways. After this Broadwell or post-broadwell it will probably be system-on-chip/BGA only. Intel is already exiting the system board market, only a matter of time before chips are sold only to mobo makers directly.

The prices of some of the 1150 motherboards at microcenter just got a big price cut between Sunday and Monday (today) (i saw a gigabyte one drop form $240 to $185).
I also see price cuts on 1150 motherboards at Newegg.com. It looks like the out the gate prices were MSRP and now they are quickly dropping due to competition.

Indeed. The ASRock mini ITX board is brushing against $99.
