Not sure how this is a thing, but since Amazon and Newegg both appear to be backordered on the i9 for 1-2 months (and are extremely low on the i7?), I'd like to put out a reminder that Microcenter is awesome and you should love us
Both chips also get you $20 off a compatible new board.
But wait you might say, My nearest Microcenter is 400 miles away! No worries! Leave a location request here and I'll round them up and submit them through email to the appropriate team. No promises, but feedback is always appreciated.
