Tired of waiting for e8400's...

Well I'm ready to order everything for my computer, and I'm sick of waiting on e8400's

Should I just buy an e8500 or a e3110? I've heard the 3110's are basically the exact same thing.

More about tired waiting e8400
  1. If E8500 is available go for it and do not hesitate
  2. i would get the 6750, sure it runs a little slower but its a great cpu -what i am using

    yes, if you wait i would skip the 8400 and go to the 8500
  3. the 8500 is a fairly big jump whereas the e3110 can generally be had for cheaper than the 8400 (at least from the stores ive seen) and the only differnce is it carries the Xeon name which will mean the CPU is higher binned

    Id go for the e3110 if you can get it
  4. Go with your budget, and have a heatsink to support it. none are a bad option.
  5. server chips are for servers! lol!

    is this a sever app? its 775 so its same thing with a different name?
  6. Its like the athlon MP, its just a desktop chip that happens to be unlocked and ready to go in MP situations, or run on a desktop board as a workstation.
  7. You mean you can't find an E8400 or your tired of waiting for prices to come down?

    Got mine at Fry's for $245 out the door.
  8. Has anyone recieved their $200-210 Buy.com e8400's? I got sick of waiting for mine and hate paying a premium because of low supply/high demand.

    edit: I like this one. availability = yes. But click to see real time availability and they are backordeed a few thousand. :)

  9. I'd say wait for the E8500...
  10. I'd say wait for the E8500...
  11. I agree E8500 see if its sensor isnt all out of wack like the 8400 is.
  12. I've never actually seen the E8500 available in stock anywhere (or E8200, for that matter). BTW, I just received an e-mail from ZipZoomFly.com that the E8400 is in stock and shipping
    ...but at $279. I don't think we'll see $189 E8400's anytime soon. I'm happy that I got my E3110 a few weeks ago for $218 after an E8400 disappeared out of my shopping cart at TigerDirect.
  13. ^^ Womp Womp Womp Womp $279 good Lawd.

    Its not so much what youre getting on about, sounds more like your getting off on this. Oh and by the way, I can slaughter the english language as much as I want, Im a yank heheh
  21. i bought my E3110 couple days ago from excaliberpc.com for $219 retail. its up to $229 now but GL finding it for cheaper and in stock elsewhere. on the E8500 note i dont think paying $50-100 more for 160 mhz increase is really worth it.

    heres the link to excaliber and it is still in stock

    Forgive him. He's from Arizona. (probably didn't even know a queen could be married to a prince. Hmm on second thought, that even sounds funny to me. Incest the royal game)
  25. Depends on what kind of queen....

    well you know what they say, incest is the best! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    :whistle:
  27. What Im wondering is, if the queens a queen, howd we get the prince?
  28. Do not know how long they will have these in stock. Found some E8400 over at ATACOM.COM, but price is a bit high at $319.95 plus shipping.

  29. ouch.. I got mine for $250 after tax from a local PC shop in my town
  30. They also have the INTEL CORE 2 DUO E8500 3.16GHZ 1333FSB LGA775 6MB RETAIL BX80570E8500A for $379.95

  31. I just bought a e3110 for $207 at buy.com! They actually have them in stock.

    I received 5 dollars off for signing up as a promo code. Budget free shipping for 0 dollars so the total was really 207.
  32. Be carefull guys xeon E3110 needs ECC memory
    Check the availabilty sand price of these memoriesbefore buying one
    As for new motherboards I think they support ECC and NONECC memories but worth checking
  33. Where did you get that the E3110 requires ECC memory?

    Clint
  34. The Xeon E3110 does not require ECC memory. I'm running one right now with plain old unbuffered non-ecc DDR2-800. It is identical to the E8400 except it says E3110 on it instead of E8400.
  35. hmm building a bit of E3110 inventory Intel? Shame shame, trying to dump a server cpu on these poor folks! lol

    Moreover, PCWizard 2008 (v1.84) even detects the CPU as an E8400... There is a full active thread on the matter here.

    Ok, what the heck. I called them and they said the CPU was in stock and $220. My dad went to pick it up (he is not a computer person) and they sold it to him for $275! From what this shows, I should have gotten a MoBo along with it! Im giving them a call this morning.

    I canceled my buy.com e8400 order 2 days ago. I'm guessing in a couple of months, the market will be full of chips and I'll pick a more reliable retailer then. I've always had problems with Buy.com's shipping.
  40. Good to know thnx

    Yeah, same here, but I knew others got in on it before me so wondered if any had shipped or not. I was tempted to do the e3110, but really don't need it so like you I'll be waiting for supply to build and prices to settle.
