    Hello friends, I am preparing for my i7 920 build. I have been reading all that I can while I compile my parts. Yesterday I came across an article that mentions stepping. It stated that the DO stepping chips overclock in general better than the older CO stepping. Today reading a thread here Paul mentioned that the newer batches require more voltage to reach 4GHz. This made me start to wonder, how I did in the CPU lottery. If anyone familiar with i7 chips could give me an idea of what I can expect from my chip, I would be grateful. I understand that these chips vary greatly from one to another.

    Chip info:
    Pack date 01-13-10 ( Costa Rica) Does the place of origin make a difference? I wish mine was USA

    S- spec: SLBEJ ( DO )

    Batch # 3951A424

    Micro P.C. Had this chip at $200.00 in store pick up only I jumped on it. Now I am wondering if it was to good to be true. Thanks for your input I think its great there there are people willing to help the less knowledgeable enjoy this hobby

    Google doesn't really show up with any results, so it's up in the air at this point how well your chip will perform.
