A very interesting situation is happening with Intel CPUs. Currently the Intel Core i5-10600K is selling for $289.99 and $299.99 respectively on Amazon and Newegg. This is well above the suggested MSRP of $262. Now if you check out prices on Silicon Lottery you can pick up the Core i5-10600K from prices ranging from $289.99 and going all the way up to $419.99. The $299 option is guaranteed to overclock to 4.9 GHz on all 6 cores, and 5.0 GHz on up to 2 cores.
This obviously is a better deal because you don’t know how well a retail chip is going to overclock. The all-core overclock of 4.9 GHz will provide a nice performance boost over the stock base frequency of 4.1 GHz. Now if you are thinking about picking up one of these chips be sure you have adequate cooling.
