Ok guys later this week i'll be buying a 1700 plus to replace my current CPU which will not run with voltage changes above .05...which is any (i'm going to buy a floppy drive tonight to see if a bios update will help, but i think it's the CPU).

So my question is which do i get

xpmw or wpmw

i just recieved one of each in order to see which one i liked more. The wpmw seems to be able to just hit 2.5 at around 1.875V but it will take no more but the xpmw does 2.5ghz at 1.825vcore and so far i've topped it out at 2623mhz on 1.95vcore on air cooling. THe wpmw was also not quite as stable at 2.5 then the xpmw. If i were you i would go with the xpmw as it seems that have been better for taking higher vcore and have higher overclocks overall. I know TheDude on xtremeforums had a wpmw around 2.7 on a prommie and his xpmw does over 2.9
