In terms of quality and performance, OEM and Retail components are identical in every way. The primary difference is that Retail products include the retail packaging which may offer things such as user guides to help with installation, CDs, and other added parts while OEM products, on the other hand, are specially designed for system builds such as CyberPowerPC and don't necessarily need to include instructions or extra items to build the computer.
CyberPowerPC uses a mix of both Retail and OEM parts for example since CyberPowerPC offers a variety of aftermarket fans and coolers that outperform the stock fans that come with retail CPUs, our OEM CPUs arrive in specially designed manufacturers trays and therefore will not have the original fan.
You can rest assured there is no difference in the performance and because only CyberPowerPC is authorized to acquire OEM parts like this, we are able to pass the savings on to you.
