HMM.

SO. which one of the two architectures used in the chips, do you think will yeild better OCs in general?

I've heard a lot about the opteron 165 - but perhaps its acclaim is founded on.. the RATIO (seeing that it has a lower stock MHZ) of its OC, rather than .. how far it reaches, compared to its other cousins..

Do most 170's reach 3.0GHZ?

They both use the same architecture and are basicaly the same chip just different multi. Alot of people pick the 165 because it was the cheaper of the two. Or cheaper than any of the Opteron line of chips. I still say the 170 for its higher multi. The higher the multi the less you have to push the chipset for the higher fsb speeds.
