Back in October, Newegg had the lowest-ever price on the i5-12600, for $215. Then, it jumped back up to $240, before I had noticed the dip. I'm holding out to see if it matches or beats that all-time low, on Friday or Monday.

Why that model? Well, it's non-hybrid, so Win 10 should have no issues on it. More importantly, it's more efficient than the bigger dies, and I'm trying to build a box that won't heat up my home office, over the summer. So, I'm aiming for low idle power and 65 W TDP. I'm planning on using just its iGPU for graphics.
