    I always wonder about these contests.. They can always say there giving away prizes and then give away nothing and none of us would even know it... we don't even know how many entered or the chance of winning.
    Ya gots it all wrong, sir! I'm pretty sure there will be a list of winners, and if it's on the Internet, you know it's true! Have you ever known the number of entries in any other prize drawings? Not even the state lotteries tell us that.

    See, the thing is, they want your email address so they can send you advertising. I just hope they don't sell mine; I've already been there, so don't wanna go again.

    Still, this prize is well worth the spam Intel may send me.

    For our European members:

    CaseKing already has the 8086's even further binned & delidded
    (Note: these binned chips run the specified frequencies on ALL 6 cores)

    Note the price for the off the shelf version(bottom right), and then compare with the further binned-delidded w/liquid metal-tested with prime95-OC guarenteed(with proper cooling) ones.

    I always keep a junk email address that I give when I'm forced to by somebody I'm not completely comfortable giving one of my regular addresses. If I start getting too much spam, etc., I just delete that address and create another one. Intel got my junk address.

    $75 upcharge for +300Mhz on one single core(out of the box)???
    And only with Turboboost 2.0, meaning for a very short burst.
    With no guarantee that you can get all 6 cores to OC to that?

    You all decide.

    My opinion, it's a collectors item, and that's it.
    (unless you win it in the lottery)

    I haven't received any advertisement nor a winners notice either.

    Nope, neither have I, Steve. And, as far as a winner's notice, I don't expect one. But I can hope . . .
