These deals keep getting better and better lately on the v2 cpus. I will have to collect a few more. On a side note one of my dual rigs had a long running issue fixed by moving to v2 cpus. The Asrock ep2c602 had intel driver stability issues under win 10 with v1 cpus that required a group policy edit to keep windows from updating the driver to keep stability. I don't seem to have any of the crash issues or need for that fix with the ivy bridge chips.
