I don't want to be the party pooper. But in theory you have to inform amazon because they clearly have sent them by mistake:

I would however keep hold of them for 2 weeks in case they click on and try to ask for them back.

They can only ask for them back, not demand them. They were sent out by mistake yes but they are unsolicited goods and you are not required by law to send them back etc.

That's the legal side. Now the moral side? that's down to you really.

Moral side? Amazon's a huge company. They aren't exactly going out of business if they lose 2 CPUs now are they? I'd sell all three and get an i7 :P

Going by what Lazio posted they are sent by mistake so he would need to let amazon know and give them the option of collecting them

What does it say on the Despatch note that came with the 3 i5's? and your mobo. I would personally check that first before doing anything else.

Pretty much no contest on the heat output i run NF F12's in push pull on a H80i usually @ 1200rpm with my fx chip and in this hot summer it Ideled at just under 40c @ 4Ghz and hiting 65c underload.
Now i am running the i5 i have lowerd the rpm's to 800rpm and dont even see over 56c, and my pc has finaly shut up lol apart from that MSI TF3 HD7950...
I have to run the i5 with c state 3/6 off and turbo mode on at the moment as my psu does not support haswells lowpowerstate's (psu is the next upgrade) and my old games run smooth as butter (fallout nv runs a hell of a lot better)

Few bits and pieces for me this month. Firstly I've been visiting my uncle a lot lately and he's really turned me on to espresso. So I got this.

And then these.

Then to take care of my phone. I have a Blackberry Passport (I know, off the wall) and I can't express how much I love it. It's just a fine communications device and I couldn't be without it. Sadly there aren't many cases around for it and the stock Blackberry one is falling apart. This is a heavy device, so I wanted something it snaps into. Cue this.

It wasn't cheap. However, neither was the unit itself (I paid closing in on 400 for it) so I think it's well worth it.

So what does the PC get this month? a 480gb one of these.

I noticed my main gaming drive only has 80gb left, nowhere near enough.
