What's the difference between cel300a and cel300a "sl32a"?
300 is the speed of the processor, the "A" means it has 128K L2 cache. SL32A is the sSPEC number. Each Intel processor has a different sSPEC number designating the packaging type.
SL32A is Boxed Retail. SL2WM is also a 300A and is the OEM version, although Intel is now boxing these up also.
Thanks for the reply, but as bad as I hate to say it I don't know the difference between OEM and retail! What are they? Why is retail more expensive than OEM? Thanks for any illumination on this for me.
The retail version comes with a heatsink and fan attached...and a nice 3 year warranty.
The OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is a raw CPU, no fan, no pretty box and a much shorter warranty. My OEM version came with a 90 day warranty. As far as computers go, gee when it's 90 days old it's junk anyway.
Actually at $79 bucks, it's a disposable CPU!
