I have a CABGE (or "Cabbage" as its known) which is supposed to be the worst stepping ever (and seeing as i cant get 2800 MHz stable its right) but on AIR (and bad air at that) it ran at 2750 MHz fine

I see there that the place only says "ADA4000DAA5BN", which basically says stuff like "San Diego" "4000", the Cache etc... The same for all 4000's, the steppings however, arent

The next line is more important - but you cant see it, chances are they just have a lot of them and they are probably all different, and they cant be bothered to go and check!

DAMM that is cheappp...even the 3200 venice is more expensive on the site..if you do get a good stepping..you can even get to 3.0ghz on stock volts..im very tempted to just pick one up

The best buys for socket 939 AMD processors are the 3700+ San Diego (single core) and the Opteron 165 Denmark (dual core). They both regularly get to 3GHz.

Well Personally IMO. If you where to upgrade i would go for the Opty 165..Easy Dual core upgrade for a great Price and is just that bit more future proof.
