    I wonder if Microcenter will get these, and if so, what they'd charge.

    Dont know as we don't know how it performs/overclocks yet. Afaik.

    And are still people still thinking this is a CPU for the common folk? Good grief.

    Best "reviews" you'll see of these will be over at hwbot.org ...

    Wonder if they could break 9GHz snapshot stable or ~8GHz bench stable...

    I'd take two 4770k instead for that price. Or four 8320's.

    It's not supposed to. It's a one off chip Limited Edition chip, designed for breaking OC records. In 10 years time it'll be worth a fortune because you'll be one of the only ones with one.

    Considering "good" i7-3770Ks tend to go around $5,000~$10,000, $900 is a good price.

    Binned 3770K's go for 5-10K easily they are all over the place. These are pre-binned AMD chips and hopefully this preorder pricing is just ridiculous and we see a nice drop to common folk land.
