Good Deal At Micro Center On Q8300 CPU

This may have been mentioned already but Micro Center has a has Intel Q8300 CPUs on sale for $89. A further bonus is these CPUs are the the VT variant. These are going for $149 on Newegg. They are also a very good overclocker. I installed one in a Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR motherboard and have it running stable at 3.8ghz. It is a nice cheap upgrade for those with S775 mid range single/dual cores that want to get a little more longevity from their rig.

BTW, this deal isn’t available online. You have to get one at a MC store.

I’m pretty sure MS removed VT restrictions.

Moved to the Bargain Basement :slight_smile:

If the CPU S-spec on the box is SLGUR then it is a VT capable chip. I suspect nearly all the CPUs are SLGUR pieces.
