I guess by "best" I mean fastest final product.

The X2 3600+ is really good. I got it to 2.6Ghz and it was outperforming my Core2 rig.

you serious ?

the best would be the fx 62 or the x2 5000

however ram really effects amd's so ultra low latency ram is a must

The X2-5000 is already clocked at 2.6gHz what will do better?

The topic is "the best one to O/C. Neither the FX-62 nor the X2 5000+ can OC for *&#!. The X2 3800+ or the 3600+ would oc the best by far.

*EDIT* - Btw, teh 5000+ has half the cache of the other X2s so it is by no means that fast. The X2 5200+ is the one with the full cache but IMO they are all wastes at the moment.

well the fx62 and the x2 5000 both need ddr2 800 , so that ram will be a huge let down and will decrease performance

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145040

something like would be a good choice, however if you could find ddr2 800 with a cas 3 rating that would be even better

and i didnt even think there was a x2 5200 :|


the fx 62 will/should overclock the best, however only with phase or high water

True, the X2 3600 and 3800 are the best OCers. At one point he assked what is the best CPU at stock (or som' like that) and that's the FX62
