i posted this question in the cpu forum but it seems they are all busy with the friggin amd vs. intel aka "my father can beat up your father" crap.... sooo tiresome. anyway, does anyone know a good site where i can purchase, and be assured i am getting an axia t-bird? preferably axia-y?

true true.
there are a few sane voices of reason around.

i saw an online advert not too long ago which advertised Axia's and the like. but for the life of me i cant remember th addy. sorry.
i will look though.
i assume you have done a search?

oh, i've definately put in some time looking, but the sites dont specify if they are axia or not. should i assume anything over 1.2ghz, retail, is axia? or coppercore rather than aluminum? if you could find that site, that would be great... im sure others have purchased an axia chip...

i did a search on pricewatch.com and got two pages of hits for axia athlon.....most are listed as oem, but im sure if you call one of those sites they can help you out.

i did that also but that led to more confusion.... if a chip is "axia" doesnt that represent a certain level of quality, so, therefore calling it an oem would be a contridiction in terms?

No, just because an athlon has an "AXIA" stepping does not mean it has better quality than others. They are all equal in terms of 'quality.' It just has been found that AXIA steppings are 'better' for overclocking.

will the axia cost more than those non-axia ones???
also, is it true that only retail tbirds have copper cores???

According to <A HREF="http://www.athlonoc.com/newsteppings.php" target="_new"> Athlon OC</A>, the newest stepping are ARGA, AXIAR, and AYHJA.
Yes, in <i>some</i> retail stores, the AXIA will cost more than lets say an AVIA stepping. (Which I think is a total rip-off).
....don't know about your last question....
