Recommended Posts

I'm going to be upgrading my cpu and want the chip available to me. Am i right in thinking that its the Opteron 170?

170 or 165 both are nice chips

 

if you wanna max out that cpu, your ram might need to handle speed around 250mhz

 

but that OCZ plat should do it, are they pc3200 or pc4000 sticks???

Cant believe i left that out, its pc4000. I know both 170's and 165's are fine. Does one generally oc better than the other? also do i need to watch out for anything like stepping or small info the sites tend to leave out?

 

I've found this list can anyone comment on its accuracy?

 

Does anyone know an online shop that ships to the uk and will give me a opty with a good stepping?

Yes watch for the stepping info, the list is somewhat good, not updated. The bottom 3 (CCBBE ?) are good for 3G attempts. There are lot different stepping out there that are not on that list. For example mine is CCBBE 0616 XPMW and has good OC'ing ability. Also there's new chips with different steppings. I would say pick up a CCBBE, if ya can find one. Sorry, I have no idea where in the UK to shop.
