Uh, well, one listed as out of stock and one open box Intel-branded H67 offering.  Not much else to comment on here other than we are slightly confused, but if you want to pick up a Sandy Bridge processor without a motherboard or system for whatever reason, I guess you can now...?  Maybe this is just an attempt to counter AMD's latest marketing blast?  Anyone have an interesting guess?
