I had RMAed a 1.6a earlier this year and it took too long for it to get back to me. So I bought another 1.6a and today they send me back a new 1.6a.

I'm wondering what I should do with it, should I sell it or make another comp. How much would I get for one of these if I sold it?

I see them being sold online for $120-$130, IF you can find them.

I just bought one ;) I wanted to see how much I could get out of it.

Currently 2.24Ghz on a tiny 1U (1"high total) Thermaltake copper heatsink. Waterblock is slowly being made...

Keep the one that OCs highest for yourself, sell the other one. You might be able to sell it for more if it OCs fairly high, and you guarentee it'll run at a specific speed.

Biggest thing is, what's the pack date and batch numbers and other notables from the side of the box, usually that will sell it itself if it's good.

What kind of RAM are you using?

The current 1.6a I'm using right now is at 2.51ghz. Can't go any further because of my Samsung PC2700.
