You cant Really find out what your true stepping is without removing the heatsink and taking not of the code on the top of your CPU'S IHS.

You can't. Like Enterprise said, it's only on the IHS.

Means you've got the E6 revision, which I believe tends to be better with Venice cores. I'm not really familiar with Venice steppings, so I'm afraid I can't help you there.

To read your IHS for the Steppings:



Some Good Steppings for the 3500+ are:

LBBLE 0519 GPMW
LBBLE 0517 APOW
LBBWE 0533 EPAW

However these are old weeks now and prob. hard to come by.. most 3500+ average out around 2.5-2.6 with some doing a bit more.

Let us know what yout stepping is to help you further.

The first part on the bottom picture (labeled "core") of ncsa's pic is what most of the people here refer to when they say stepping.

I am sure you have not really tried everything you will need to see how each key component goes - work through Find the Max FAQ... and then put it all together.

Still 250x11 is very good and even 250x10 is about average for these CPUs.... keep on getting it stable and then go up.
