OEM or Retail CPU

I was just looking around at processors and i saw OEM and retail versions of various models now the OEM version in some cases was almost half the price. Is there any diffrence in chips? Is it u dont get the warranty? Is that why it so cheap or is it a totally diffrent Chip all together

More about retail
  1. Best answer
    Same CPU, but no fan and a shorter warranty.
  2. If its a case of a few ££/$$, get retail for the warranty, handy if you plan to overclock and you screw the cpu.
  3. yea lol i was just wondering saw an E8400 said brand new OEM it was like $100 i think Newegg want 150 or 160 for that same processor
