Would you say I got a bad CPU? I though I had a good stepping - CCBWE...

Sile, yes i am pretty sure i have the latest official BIOS (v1009), I wouldnt wanna risk a beta.
I'd say you have a decent CPU if you can get 2.7GHZ. Always remember that anything you get from an overclock is a bonus. You bought the chip expecting to see stock speeds, and anything else is a bonus. It doesn't make any sense to buy a slower chip a expect it to clock as high as any others. Your processor might not even overclock at all, and the one that was made right after it might hit 3.0GHZ. As long as it reaches stock speeds, then it is a good cpu.
