Buying a Opteron 165 Stepping?

Recommended Posts

Where can I find a site where I can still pick Opty 165 Steppings.

 

I checked TankGuys and Flickerdown. Both won't let you pick steppings. I don't really want to go to ebay except as a last resort. Anyone know of somewhere good?

 

What kind of steppings are Newegg giving out these days?

The cali warehouse shipped me a CCBWE 0551. But word around the street is that the Jersey wherehouse is shipping good steppings.

Yep, I got the same stepping from the Cali warehouse. But I read on the reviews that now a few people are getting CCBBE 0610s and 0615s :mad:

 

Ah well, I got me a 0615DPMW.

 

Tankguys let you pick when I last checked about a week and a half ago; the stepping they were letting guys pick was CCBBE 0617FPMW. The one for the 170 (which is the one you should get because you have PC3200 RAM) was CCBBE 0615DPMW.

The deal with Tankguys is they don't always have every cpu in stock. Many smaller retailers ship directly from their supplier because at the rate prices can fall carrying stock is a big risk. If they have stock, you pick your stepping. If they ship from their supplier, you're SOL. I'm sure anyone who is interested can email Tguys and ask if they plan on carrying 165, 170 stock ever again.

 

Luck,

Ugly
