Default Overclocking Opt. 165/170 Differences?

I was reading another forum and they were talking about how the 170 has an x10 multi making it easier to overclock but the 165 can be overclocked to the same speed.

Can someone explain to me the differences and why one is better etc..

you cant really tell which one is better in overclockability, each CPU is unique, they all overclock differently, there is not set standard for the overclockability of CPUs, ALTHOUGH Opterons are the best overclockers. 165 and 170, either one is good.

well apparently the 170 is easier to overclock, but they both max out at the same peak. I just wanted more insight to this
