    Default Sandybridge and european/uk retailers.

    Ill try and keep this short.

    Most of the major european/uk retailers are now selling intel 2000 cpus and p67/h67 motherboards again.
    Rxceptions would be Pixmania(cpu only for now) and alternate.de (stopped selling all 1155 items and still holding to that)
    More than 1 have posted they have worked a swap out deal(change the motherboard if u want,no charge even if the board is bought from now until the "fixed" boards are available) with all the major mbrd suppliers. (Gigabyte included)
    These retailers "pulled" the products for a day or 2, now theyre back.

    Ill take amazon(uk)and amazon(de) as examples :
    2000 cpus are in stock again and for sale.
    p67 and h67 mbrds are in stock and for sale.

    For prices the cheapest i5 2500k ive seen is 168 after sales tax/vat.
    Of course these prices will seem massive in $ terms but they allways are.

    That is a approx 5% reduction from what was there a few days ago.
    h67/p67 Mbrd prices,including gigabyte havent changed as much(strange) , tho one particular supplier did have a 10% reduction,perhaps they got a big stock in.
    Im not passing any comments on this situation , but some prospective buyers might be interested.
