Hi Aria, whilst looking through your listings I keep noticing that there you list 2 types of Intel 3960X CPU's - Why? I notice that one is more expensive than the other - Why? It makes for very confusing understanding and or making a purchasing decision based on accurate information posted!
I am sure along with your other potential customers clear and accurate description would be appreciated? Your explanation waited thank you.

Response by joebe
If you are refering to (48282) then it's because it has c2 stepping where the cheaper one does not.

Hi guys
as you can see this is the fastest consumer processor on the planet and this is reflected in the price,however its worth every penny and will produce performance superior to anything else currently avalible
the 15mb smart cache is mammoth and turbo boost technology makes a return allowing a boost from 3.3ghz to 3.9ghz
NOTE : this cpu does not come with a stock fan/heatsink assembely so you need to buy a 3rd party cooler to ensure the cpu receives adequate cooling.... i recommend the "Corsair H100 Water-Cooling CPU Cooler"( quickcode : 44804 ) ..infact this is one of the only socket 2011 cpu cooler avalible currently.. however manufacturers will be releasing air based cpu coolers in the very near future
in reflection the Intel Core i7-3960X is a amazing peice of technology using the finest silicon to produce performance that will make heads turn.... totally magical processor
well done aria !
