Whats the difference between Retail Edge and a retail CPU? Depending on the price I would be interested in the CPU

None other then the fact the purchaser of the RE item paid considerably less for it then retail.

That and it is against the TOS to re-sell any retail edge products. Basically, if caught, they lose their retail edge buying ability.

I've heard there may be warranty issues as well, but some say 'no warranty - the serial is flagged as RE and warranty only extended to purchaser' and others say there isn't any problem with warranty. Never really heard the definitive answer on it.

I have sold RE processors here before and I am willing to RMA the product on your behalf if necessary.

from what i remebered from the original i7 (920 it was?) intel edge deal, the serial code has RE at the end of ths serial, and a copy of invoice is REQUIRED for rma, is it like thata again with these 3930k's?

I sold my 3930 for 375 shipped. Thats 'cheap', but I did it as a favor to the community. There is a couple floating around on RFD and here for 425ish, but they dont seem to be moving very quickly...

:offtopic:The 3930k I got for Stoanee did not have RE in the serial. I havnt RMA'd anything from my RE buys to date, so I cant say for sure about the exact process. I would say the key is just making sure you can rely on the seller to help you RMA the items if something should happen, just to be safe. :ph34r:

If you're selling RE products, I think it's best to take whatever it cost you, add maybe $25 and call it a day. Otherwise you are just taking advantage of people IMO.

I don't think many are going the LGA2011 route these days. Most seem to be sticking to LGA1155.

What did you pay for your house in toronto? I'd be glad to give you what you paid +$25 for it. :thumb:
