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.
