Micro Center Ivy Bridge CPU/Motherboard Combo Deal!

DEAD?

Intel Ivy Bridge just launched and already Micro Center is having some amazing deals for it. See the picture for details. You can also combine it with other motherboards. I myself picked the AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 motherboard. Costs only $90. So choose wisely!

And Because we're Canadians, ship to here!

How do you get it shipped directly to you to a Canadian address? -- not amerifriend nor crossbording.

The prices are great. No store in Canada has its prices even close (typical canadian store: CAD240 i5-3570k, CAD94 Z77 ultravalue defeatured mobo)

AFAIK, Z77 is the only chipset able to do CPU/GPU/RAM full featured overclocking, isn't it?

I guess we'll have to wait 3-4 months to have some non-gauged prices for IB cpus and some better mobo selection

As soon as I learned of the price for the 3770k I made the decision to just put a 2600k in my new build yesterday instead for $289.

Can't help but notice the "In store only" just above the MB ads.

the first batch of Ivy bridge processors runs a whole lot hotter than Sandy Bridge when overclocked. its best to wait for a new stepping.

microcenter always has such good cpu+motherboard deals it is like they stole the stuff and are just fencing it off

You kidding yourself if you think Canadian stores will drastically drop the prices on the Sandy bridge chips. Just look at the E8500, it's selling at memoryexpress for $210.

You will never see those microcenter prices in Canada.
