165 or 4400+? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
The price cuts were supposed to start 10/30, yes, but many retailers have begun preempting that date, Ive seen 170/175s in a few places for less than 220$.

But Id rather get a 165 for 160-180$

I use to have a 2.0ghz A64 Oc'd to 2.48ghz (248x10) Couldn't get any higher bus speeds. Switched to an Opty 165 because the price dropped. From $385 to $279 cdn. I read that the Opty's could OC very well because they use alot better material than the regular A64 chips do. But anyways i thought...well even if i only get like 400mhz out of the cpu, it's still a Dual Core with more L2 cache!! So i put this bad boy in and i didn't fool around....went to 2.2ghz....2.4ghz....2.6ghz....2.9ghz.... Stock voltage...loaded up windows in 2.9ghz but unstable. Lowered it down to 2.8ghz and no problem....ran a couple of hours in prime95 but crashed...increased the voltage a little no problems....decided to fool around with bus speed....got it now working at 330x8.5!!!!! Pretty sweet from my 248mhz bus speed. Anyways I was EXTREMELY happy! You cannot go wrong with this cpu....i highly recommend it.

Ordered a 165 today... well sort of, because MonarchPC screwed up. Now I just need to actually finish my WC; the parts have been laying in my room for 2 months now.
