AGKGA Bad stepping or what???
Have had my 1700+ unlocked for a while now and it didnt do to well i thougt . i could only get it to run at 11.5 multiplier thats equal to the 1800+ and it runs perfect with no extra juice =). the strange thing is if i go at 12 it says its an 1700+ and boots normal, if i set it at 12.5 it says 1800+ and boots normal ??? and if i go under 11 the computer wont boot at all ?!? I have removed the silverpaint and done it again but the result is the same...
The chip is an AGKGA must be the steppin thats bad or what?
Tnx in advance /Moosifer

Are you also adjusting the VCore when changing your multiplier and FSB? To run at a higher multiplier/FSB you have to increase the VCore at a certain point. In turn, this will raise the temps, so adequate cooling is a must.
I have the AGKGA stepping with my 1800+. I have managed a successful 1656MHz so far. My motherboard only goes to 1.85V, so that along with my generic DDR may be the problem. I have unlocked my chip also, but ultimately returned it to the stock multplier of 11.5 because I could get it to run just as fast in this setting as under 12 and 12.5. You could try decreasing the multiplier to 10 or so (I cant remember what the 1700+ is stock???) and raising the FSB little by little. You may have better luck that way if you have fairly decent memory.
I am dissapointed with my AGKGA also. Some of the best overclocking XP's I've seen are using AGOIA, and AGOGA(actually using underclocked 2000+/2100+ cores) www.newegg.com had the AGOGA 1900+ for $113 last time I checked...

My AGKGA 1600+ topped out at 1.64ghz, with 1.61GHz being the most stable (11.5x140) at 1.85v. I then upgraded to a AGOIA 1600+ from newegg, and I am now hitting 1.85GHz with 1.85v with my AX-7.
Not sure why your chip won't POST at 11.0x multiplier, since your chip is in fact defaulted to a 11.0x multiplier... (?) I've never had any problem with any multiplier settings on any board or chip..

I had a 1700+ AGKGA ("ACK-ga", lol) and it did 1672MHz on air/1752MHz with H20.
Now have a 1800+ AGOIA that is fine for 1900MHz normally, and 1938MHz if I crank the radiator fan up to 12V.

Does it just say that at post or does it say it in programs like SiSoft or CPUID too. If it is just at post then you need to flash your BIOS. If it says it everywere, then it is not completely unlocked.
