I have 2 3700+ Sandy's at the moment and I was wondering which one will OC higher (assuming identical conditions). Basically, which stepping is better. I have the one in my rig now, KAB2E, and a new one, KACAE. Any ideas or links to some stepping sites?

Look here also it's a OC and Stepping data-base...It should answer most of your questions..<please link on site resources before linking off site ones> EDIT: Will do!!! Didn't think it would matter since it's just a data-base....

You're going to have to see which one will take you farther. While you can get a general idea by the stepping, you cannot make a decision by just that. Every chip is different and stepping is just a general guide.
