I didnt but when i said O/C the best i meant the fastest. So could you get an X2 3800 runnin faster than the X2 5000 or FX 62?

Or should I go with a X2 4800 (939) and overclock higher than an X2 5000 or FX 62?

the x2 3800 wont beat the fx62 if they were at the exact same speeds, the x2 3800 has less cache , which in the end makes a slight difference , not much of a difference but still.

If your running air cooling than the x2 3800 should be a good option, as recently they have been getting to around the 3ghz mark.

That said , the fx62 can get to 3ghz with just a multi change.

Your best bet is to get a conroe/allendale rig anyway.

Yeah, don't go AMD at all. I could OC mine like a cinch and destory any AM2 rig you could cook up. Sorry bro, core2 is the way now.

That's a different story. The thing is that with stock air cooling all the AMD CPUs cap around 3.0 GHz or if very lucky at 3.1GHz.
The thing is the FX62 @2.8GHz caps just a bit higher-3.0GHz, not much of an OCer. I think the X2 4200 reaches 3.0GHz also, but the X2 3600 and X2 3800 cap around 2.7 GHz.
To get the best performance/$ I would say it's the X2 4200 which can reach 3.0GHz and doesn't cost a fortune. If more budget-contious you could try to get the 3600 up to 2.6 - 2.8GHz.

dragosmp you forget that none of the high end amd's ( fx series and high x2 series ) are meant for normal cooling, with phase most get around the 4ghz mark

Phase is about $1,000. If you have that much money, get an E6700 and ti will destory the FX62 even with phase.

E6600s have know to get way past 3ghz. Some have been sighted at 3.4. That is absolutely amazing since thier multiplier is 9 therefore, FSB is easier to attain.

home made phase isnt

well the e6600's are getting around the 3.6ghz mark on air, water / phase expect a bit more

the e6700 is the same as the e6600 with a higher multi and slightly better stock speeds, if you want the best overclock than the e6700 will be better, if you dont think the overclock justify's the extra cash then the e6600 will still be amazing

looks like E6600 is the one for me unless the E6700 is clocking at 4gHz after O/C... lol
