    Processor in box,

    you can get your processors in 2 flavors,

    in box, or OEM, both are identical,

    except that the oem comes in a tray with several more processors, so you save 10-15 bucks, but you get the processor in some static shielding,

    the in box comes in a full cardboard box, with a greeting with amd, a Heatsink fan which in general is NOT recommended if you like silence and low temps, and the processor itself is held in a plastic casing, as mentioned before, its around 10-15 bucks more expencive,

    some people say that the in box versions are more protected during transport then the OEM ones, but if you have a warranty, you dont really care about that,

    once you take it out of the box, a OEM and a PIB are identical, will yield the same results,
