IMO fo with the 170 as it has the 10x muilt as a default. 165=9x

I can agree with the 165 hitting the highiest of them that we have heard but you also gotta keep in mind not alot of people are getting the 170 so your not going to hear as much. I myself just like the idea of 10x300 1:1 possiblility if not @least 275 1:1 or something. There is some people who have gotten pretty good result's with the 170 BTW

It is really up to how high your HTT will go on your mobo. To do 2.7 with a 165 you need to be able to run at 300htt stable. If your board will do that then the 165 is fine. If not, you'll need the higher multi.

If the prices are going down, you may want to wait a few days(or even a few weeks) and see how far they go and see where's the best deal.
