I know the D0 stepping one apparently oc's better, but are SLBEJ's the D0 steppings? There are i7-920 at my local store but they only say SLBEJ on them it seems and I was googling up but i couldn't confirm 100%.
Hmm, i'll have to check later, so the "S-Spec #" IS SLBEJ, you think? If it is im def gonna go and purchase some of these .
Yes, SLBEJ is the S-Spec number... I think it's D0, but I don't know for sure. Batch numbers are usually a good indicator of how your chip will overclock, and how much voltage it needs based on other people's findings of similar chips. The box should have a sticker like this:
Just my 2 cents... but if I were you, I'd buy a 930. They are all D0, and they're the same price usually. I always say this... but if you have a Micro Center nearby, they're 199$ there.
So I took some pictures of the last one they have at the store, the guy opened it and allowed me to look around. It's an open boxed 7 days money back guarantee. The problem is it has a few "Scratches" on the face, you guys think its worth it for $150USD? Will these scratches effect the processor at all?
