    Hi All,

    Been a while since I've posted but I was wondering if any of you know of any great places to acquire CPU's for older chipsets.

    A friend of mine is looking for a 4770K/4790K to replace his Pentium G3258 on his z97 chipset.

    Do Overclockers have a dark cobwebbed corner of the warehouse where all the old gear lives :p
