Why does Athlon64 3000 OEM cost more than Retail?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.pc-homebuilt (More info?)

I've been watching and waiting for prices to change at Newegg. For the
past few weeks the Retail Boxed Athlon 64 3000+ Venice is $146, while the
OEM is $149. The specs are slightly different, the retail has a voltage of
1.35/1.4, the OEM is 1.5

I checked on AMD's website, and the voltage is "variable". Is the OEM a
better (i.e more overclockable) chip?

    You really are mentally deranged, perhaps you'd like to see a shrink?

    For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down
    in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived
    it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which
    are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely
    impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas
    how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the
    bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points
    of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of
    dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem,
    is but a dream within a dream.
