So, we have another winner? Or did I need to be more thorough in my answer?

Do ForeverZero89, Dwarf, and I split the prize? I'll take the proc as I already have an AM2+ board waiting for it...

Sad part about that combo is despite the disclaimer, how many will buy it not knowing that the CPU is totally incompatible with the motherboard?

I'm not sure whether or not that would be legally valid. An item purchased must be fit for its purpose and without any defects. So as far as I'm concerned (and I'm not a lawyer or have any legal training), I would have to say that it is not fit for purpose as the processor would not work with that motherboard. If Newegg.ca (or indeed any other vendor) wishes to offer motherboard/processor bundles then it is upto them to ensure that the components that they offer as part of that bundle are indeed compatible with each other. Clearly, in this case they are not.
