I've been searching around for the best place to preorder a Q9450 and I've come to the conclusion that the part numbers are simply too confusing for me. I want to buy the retail CPU with heatsink included, and these are the different manufacturer part numbers I have noticed so far (TrioInternational.com carries all three so I will use them as a reference):

$346.67

Manufacturer Part Number: BX80569Q9450
http://triointernational.com/all.cfm/partNo/BX80569Q9450/manufacturer/INTEL_CORP./name/Q9450_C2_QUAD

$361.42
Manufacturer Part Number: BX80569Q9450/894292
http://triointernational.com/all.cfm/partNo/BX80569Q9450%2A%2A%2A894292/manufacturer/INTEL_CORP./name/INTEL__CORE_2_QUAD_PROCESSOR_9450_2.66_GHZ_45NM,_SSE4,_HT_TECHNOLO

$366.98
Manufacturer Part Number: BX80569Q9450A
http://triointernational.com/all.cfm/partNo/BX80569Q9450A/manufacturer/INTEL_CORP./name/CORE_2_QUAD_-_Q9450_-_2.66_GHZ_-_SOCKET775_-_L2_CACHE_-_12_MB

I was originally told that the BX80569Q9450A was the OEM version of the processor, but this is questionable because its $20 more than the BX80569Q9450 - and I have no idea where the BX80569Q9450/894292 came from nor do I have any clue as to what the part number represents. All I know is that EU=OEM and BX=Retail, but I have yet to figure out what the A at the end means on the third model number.  If anyone could give me further insight and any recommendations on where to preorder, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Man how long did it take you to post all those topics? lol
I don't really see much of a difference but there may be something hidden.

if you buy retail you have to throw away Intel's cooler that is the only difference to me Smiley

The only advantage you will get with a boxed CPU is a 3 year warranty vs a 90 day or one year warranty with a OEM CPU.  You will have to throw away the Intel fan and get a after market fan for it.

That is of course untrue for EU... we have at least six month warranty (but the meaning "warranty" has to sides of a coin in the EU), but if you overclock the warranty is out of the window anyway...

The manufacture xode doesn't say anything important, more important is the sSpec code.

I thought we have 12 month of "Gewährleistung"? ... (sorry for non-germans & non-EU citizens  - there is no english word for it, it's a kind of "guarantee by law" that can't be lowered by companies - but additionally we have the "normal" guarantee in the EU as you might know it)

You have "Gewährleistung" for two years, but after six month you have to prove the fault on the product was there when you purchased it... Nobody is able to do so, so "Gewährleistung" is quite useless after six months.

We don't expect it for some weeks... Maybe in May ... as long Intel can't ramp up 45nm process, it will be a bit longer - and they don't need to rush, because AMD has no competitive offer.

I've seen a few sources speculate that it'll be available around the week of March 24th.  If this is true, then I'm gonna be one happy camper - as I've been waiting since September for this CPU.  If Intel still can't ramp up production, however, I'm gonna have to cave and get an E8500.

Whatfor you will buy an E8500 which costs much more compared to an E8400? The multiplicator does not hinder to overclock nicely.

Personally, I don't mind spending the extra (and ridiculous in my opinion) few bucks gettin an E8500, as long as I can get top-notch performance from the Penryn family for the next year and a half until the 32nm Nehalems are out.  But truth be told, I'm still holding out for a Q9450.

There is no difference between E8400 and E8500. They behave exactly the same and oc results are not in the slightest different... To pay €60 or $100 more is just stupid.

I came rediciously close to getting the e8400 but doesn't the q9450 represent better value for money?

The E8400 represents the most value for the money.  With the stock HSF, the CPU can reach around 4.0GHz under 1.40v, whereas the Q9450 can only reach around 3.80GHz for $150 more.  However, in the long run (considering that one isn't upgrading to Nehalem until 2010 or later), the Q9450 would be a better choice.
