    Looking to buy Intel Xeon E5-1660 but no one is selling


      Hey Guys,


      I'm new to this forum so I hope I don't break any rules of etiquette.

      Basically I want to buy an Intel Xeon E5-1660 but I can find no stores that hold inventory. It's a new chip so I was very surprized! Not to mention it has better performance in single CPU systems than some others that cost more. See below.


      LGA 2011 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      PassMark - Intel Xeon E5-1650 @ 3.20GHz - Price performance comparison

      PassMark - Intel Xeon E5-2630 @ 2.30GHz - Price performance comparison


      It appears as if Intel doesn't even produce them any more, can anyone else confirm this? If anyone knows a place I can buy this chip from I would really appreciate it. I'm willing to pay $100 over MSRP. Also I found 8 sites claiming to have them by searching at google.com 4 of the sites looked like scams, I contacted 2 of the others and they lied about their inventory and don't presently have any.




      Hope someone knows something, thanks a bunch in advance for taking the time to read my question!
