Well, there are some x5680 chips for about $75 or x5690 chips for about $120 on Ebay, in Canada or the U.S., so that 3 month backlog doesn't really apply to those......It’s just a p6t deluxe. Problem with shopping from eBay/etc now is international mail is 3 months backlogged, and not many people want to use dhl or whatever courier
Just a word to the wise, IN CASE you're not aware...... in all likelihood, that board will PROBABLY need to be flashed to the latest BIOS to be able to use most, or all, of the CPUs in question.US mail is also in the international backlog. I have parts that the shipper said they would use ups and then switched to usps to save money... so they’re into the abyss.
That x5690 in Canada On eBay might be worthwhile tho. I was sleeping on a 965ee that went for 45 bucks this morning :/
