what stepping did you get man?

It's all about the stepping of the 165 man...If you got a CCBWE, you'll probably only make it to 2.4-2.6, if it's a CCBBE or CCB1E, you have a very good shot at 3.0ghz

I thought all Opty steppings guaranteed at least a 2.7 OC (seeing as how everybody praises these chips)? If there is a possibility of getting stuck at 2.5 I may as well get a X2 4400. @dotcomthese; do show us your results please. Planning on getting one myself.

Good stepping, I got mine up to 3012 mhz (benchmark stable, not prime stable), check out the cpuz in my signature. Its a good stepping, not as good a ccbbe0610, and if you paid extra expecting that stepping, i might be a little upset, but still its a nice stepping, expect 2.7 on stock volts, 2.8 with a little bump on vcore, and 3.0 with 1.56 volts (water would be suggested).

if you do not mind me asking who did you get it from on ebay just got mine too, and that is the stepping that it said I was getting

well the egg has them for 159.99 and luck of the draw so what i've read so far on google the extra 13.00 for a good stepping is prolly worth it. gonna go kinda slow because I'm new to the board and cpu so.keep up the posts.

Heck no man...There are the CCBWE steppings, which have pretty crappy memory controllers...So, the only good CCBWE steppings came from one certain batch date, 0546 maybe? And then, only some of them were good oc'ers..
