Talking i5-2500k came in today!

YAY MEEE!

I just love Newegg's sense of humor!

I'm gonna order the mobo when I get paid next week....since I only have 30 days to RMA if this is defective and as of now I have no way of testing that

Hehehe. I'm happy for you. Looks like you'll be BF3 ready.

I'll be cutting it close but probably jumping ship to a 6-core AMD system because they're cheaper at this point. It won't be able to stand up to yours but it'll certainly work for what I need.

Don't forget to post pics of your build!

Grats on the purchase

Love Newegg's sense of humor there, good stuff.

Yup. Newegg does it right. But CrimsonStar?... man, did you see his teeth. I don't think he washes himself very often. And just the other day he was beating a puppy. I saw it!

Hahaha nice, I picked up my 2600k local so no cool box for me. I have to say however; WATERCOOLING FTW!!! Since with 2 GTX 275s in the loop with the 2600k @ 4.8 it would only hit like 50c.
