CEX sell them ATM, £2.25. Motherboards are going to be tricky to source.

If you’re looking to build an audio PC where DSP Acceleration cards/racks do the number crunching, Wolfdale CPUs have plenty of juice for streamimg and lower latency, especially if XP64 is used.
Depends what your needs are.
But even now with Coffee Lake CPUs Audio buffs with DSP Accelerators are relieved for thei i3 8350k and prefer less cores no frills real time Latency.
