Question Opty question (i know so many)

I want to know what stepping is most common to have been OC'ed very well. I just got my Opty in today and the steppng on mine is "CACJE", is this one of the better one's or did i get a crapper of an overclocker (and yeah i know most people are going to say you have to overclock to see, but i don't have a motherboard to test yet......bummer )


Just to note it's a 144 model

the easiest way to find if you have a good stepping is to type it into google along with "overclocked" or "overclocking" and see the results.

You'll usually be linked to forums were people brag about their m@d OCs
