How much can you get either for? If the price difference isn't much, and you would like a 10x multiplier, then go with the 170. As far as I know though, the cpu you get may overclock well or not, wether you get the 170 or 165. I personally went with the 165 and got great overclocks. Either way if you get one of these cpus, chances are you won't be dissappointed.

Can not validate this but people around here are saying that the 170's they are selling at Newegg still have the better steppings, when compared to the 165's. Just food for thought.
