Same here. Mine was OEM, but it sounds like the PIB's were about the same steppings.

OEM here too, what you running yours at for your daily speed, volts, cooling?

I'm running 2.9ish right now. I can't have any problems during the school year so I'm not running it as high as I could. For a while I was running a little over 3.1, but this is quieter and safer. My HS is in my sig and my vcore is like 1.55. I foiund that raising the vcore hindered me more than helped. Most the time it didn't need it. Now that we've got all these opty users in one thread, its time to start a club. Opterownxorz unite!

can i be in it? IM IN THE OPTEROWN CLUB!

im only oc'ed at 2.7 (270 x 10) but its stable with my cabye. got to 2.8 stable on air but it was 1.575v and i wasnt comfortable with it that high.
ram is just 400 though, thinking that might be why i cant oc any higher.

temps are nice though, 31 idle 47 load.
little warm but im getting that zalmar all copper heat sink tomorrow from new egg, and an audigy 2zs.

I have a problem though, my side case fan, when on its highest speed, prevents the computer from posting. When its medium speed, everything is fine. I KNOW its not the powersupply, i got crazy amps on the 12v and 525 volts. Any ideas?

Anyone can be in the club, provided they have an opteron. Just copy my sig. And I have no idea why a fan would do that, except for the load it adds to your boot, which would be tiny.

When did you bought it?, according to what i read, you don't get CABYE and CAB2E any more, unless you pay a prime price to a vendor that assures you a certain stepping....
