Maybe kijiji Bnib means, carefully opened the packaging, used an aftermarket cooler, overclocked the crap out of it and used it for a year, now that haswell is about to release, cleaned it up and put it back in the box. The acronym for that would be quite long and confusing so $250 Bnib saves a lot of explaining lol.

Definitely... I bought a few CPUs like that last year or two off Kijiji (2600k, 2700k's from retail edge) and the seal was definitely tampered. When I asked about it just said the hot weather makes the sticker peel (sure..) and was completely brand new. So I check it out, yup definitely used and very very crappy overclock which can't even go above 3.8-4GHz before restarting.

For even more savings, you could go out and buy a $100 GC from BST for about $80-90. I ended up getting my 3570k from BB a month or so ago when it was on sale for $214.99 and bought some cheap GCs to lower the actual cash cost.

Also, BB offers hassle free returns/price adjustments. So if you're waiting on other parts and you notice the 3570k drop in price, just bring it back within 30 days.

I don't think this is a hot deal especially when haswell release is just few weeks away
tigerdirect randomly sells 3570k as low as $169.99 (well only once they did) which was 2~3 months ago

just an opinion here

Are you serious? Couldn't even go above 3.8-4.0GHz? Did you try increasing your vcore? Even at 1.35v you couldn't do 4.0GHz? With the right combination of motherboard and cooler, you could easily reach 4.2GHz without breaking a sweat.

Yes, they were really bad and had to get rid of them. My other versions of the exact same CPU went around 4.8-5GHz on the same settings Also if I ever sell CPUs on Kijiji I tell them I tried overclocking them and say I got a good clock with them. But most people are unfortunately not like me though.

a fair deal for now, Haswell release in a couple of weeks with 2X better graphics and compute faster. I would wait, here is the price leak for the Haswell, note there is a new SKU i5-4670 ($209 US) and i5-4670K ($227 US) @3.4GHZ. the i5-4570 will be at $189 (price drop)

•Core i7 4770K – 3.5GHz (3.9GHz) (84W) – $327
•Core i7 4770 – 3.5GHz (3.9GHz) (84W) – $292
•Core i7 4770S – 3.1GHz (3.9GHz) (65W) – $285
•Core i5 4670K – 3.4GHz (3.8GHz) (84W) – $227
•Core i5 4670 – 3.4GHz (3.8GHz) (84W) – $209
•Core i5 4570 – 3.2GHz (3.6GHz) (84W) – $189
•Core i5 4570S – 3.0GHz (3.6GHz) (65W) – $182
•Core i5 4430 – 3.0GHz (3.2GHz) (84W) – $175
