    I'd say that there are two OEM E8700's floating around this week. There may be more, but two for sure. I think you guys passed on a chance to get your hands on that mythical beast aka E8700!

    No, I am one of the million or so enthusiasts who have been searching weekly since January 26th for an E8700 for my system. If I get an E8700 you'll have" to pry it from my cold dead hands."

    Only thing he talks is about selling it if the right deals comes around... wanna take a chance to get majorly ripped off, grab ya Visa !! Guy supposedly can't even up a picture nor a decent screenshot... ow boy

    Does anyone here think it will do 5ghz on air then 24/7 ? He thinks it can lol... man al his hardware claims are so flawed. And that forum is full of... (fill in on the dotted line, a tip : it rimes with bees ) talkign about world records and 4ghz at 1?1 volts, didn't we have that before at 500FSB... I would love to see a picture when his rig posts and it says E8700... can he shop that ?

    this is funny too :

    Ok, let me clear this up. I won the 2 QX9650's
    then this follows :
    Now really I was not happy. When you buy a 2 QX9650's and one is a dual core and I already thought I was crazy to order from a guy in Malaysia in the first place. I thought I was sure screwed
    so did he win it or buy it ? Make up ya mind dude. He excuses himself by being up 24 hours lol... good grief...

    I rather have a quad at 4ghz. It's magic for benching 3DMark 01 to have that extra multi.. but Hwot and co will not approve any score with it... Dual cores are passé, no need to cash out for outdated hardware... I would rather invest in an I9 then to buy this fake or not CPU for maybe 1000 dollars or more... (and there's one that wants to pay him already 1200 bucks lol)

    My E8700 came from the same place as his. The seller sold a bunch of QX CPU's this week. He had 0 feedback and he had two E8700's. I won one of them. I tried to upload photo's here, but they exceed the 200kb upload limit. That Q829B259 is the real deal. There is a little sticker on my CPU that says: Full Vista Installation Test....O.K. Mine is not for sale. Fearlessleader is Famous Like Amos and he told you the honest to Gods Truth!

    well the cpu-z seems valid lol, but the guy just gives away 2 unique cpu's like that... I want to see boot screens or even a video where it tells me E8700 detected, can't be that hard to make these days Seems these lucky guys are total software noobs to even uplaod a decent set of screenshots on request like that ( resized )

    This came from the other thread that I removed.

    I was buying some chips right out of the plant in Malaysia when I ended up with this E8700. I did see some talk about it in overclocking forums but no one sells them any place.

    Do you think I should offer to take the chip off the guys hands or send it back
    IMHO he came here to sell the chip and since he couldn't access classys, he tried another approach. I beleive the chip is real and used from ebay.

    Ok I am going to take a chance here because it is not right to trash a guy that can't defend himself because runmc put a gag order on me. This puts my membership in jeopardy, but somehow I just can't sit back and have everybody wonder. Yes I am still here.

    This is clearly not fake. It seems more like everyone calling fake is just mad that they don't have it themselves. :S Photoshop a CPU-Z, easy. Photoshop the picture of an IHS, a bit harder, but okay, plausible. Photoshop a CPU-Z, an IHS, AND crack CPU-Z validation...uhmmm...

    And to fearlessleader, there is no "gag order" and that had nothing to do with your former thread being removed. We just take sales attempts very seriously, and having a rare piece of silicon doesn't exempt you. I'm sure tons of people are wanting to have their curiosities indulged...so continue by all means.

    You got nerve put a gag order on me so I can't defend myself and sit here and slam me. I won the Qx's on eBay from a guy in Malaysia OK. I thought these may have came out the door lunch box express. I did not have any idea when I posted my first words that the whole world would scrutinize everything I ever did like Magnum PI or something. My first thoughts where just to find out if the chip I got was worth keeping at all. I just needed to know what I should offer the guy I was buying them from. I never came here to sell it. I would not have kept the chip anyway. A normal chip could have been put up on eBay and sold in a day rather then sending it back to him. I just did not have a clue what it was worth because there was no retail version out there as a price guide.
