canada computers has it for sale as OEM

What oem stand for
difference between oem and retail box?
OEM chips are primarily designed for system builders to purchase in bulk, and as such have a different warranty applied to them.

Generally, the retailer is responsible for initial warranty work on an OEM, while you'd deal directly with the manufacturer for a retail box.

I have no qualms about purchasing an OEM cpu as I'm not normally interested in the stock heatsink anywise.
