From what I've been reading these chips aren't the best in the bunch.
Just curious, did anyone "burn-in" the cpu before pumping it up? How long? At what results..?
It looks like I'm going to get my other mobo this Friday and I'll be burning the new "9" in.. Then having a little fun..
Mines the same code but sold as a 1700+.

I had 1-2 weeks of Prime95 but with no improvemt.

Edit - sorry, "pumped it up" first, what was I thinking?

Got two of those...

I just got two of those chips from NewEgg yesterday and both are week 24. Burned on in for about four hours and then pumped it up to 10.5x160 and ran Prime95 all night. Went to work this morning and she is still running strong so I guess I'll see how it is doing tonight. I don't think I will get anymore out of it since my memory is on relaxed settings and if I raise them any it will fail Prime95 in like ten minutes. I need a good stick of RAM bad!!!:( I do think these will overclock as well as the "Ys" though. Will see once I break down for that RAM.
