That's an 8700 (non K). I wouldn't expect prices to drop anytime soon with this slow supply.

That sucks, but you shouldn't have to wait very long.

Sure hope scorptec comes through today on the 8400, cause newegg international sure is fast.
I think I ordered Tuesday, package is already in NSW. Had I ordered Monday, suspect I would’ve got it the same week.

I've been getting updates from Scorptec because I pre-ordered a 8700K with them that there will be a shipment of coming in from their supplier today.

Pity my Z370-I Strix motherboard won't be available until next week.

I am unlikely to buy from again Scorptec since they won't sell cpu with MB and a few weeks the sold my mate a DX racer chair that was opened and missing screw as new. My mate was to lazy to cart the chair back so got them to order a replacement screws.
