for a single core I recommend an Athlon 64 FX-55 San Diego. It's gets me to 3Ghz on the first try, and has minimal heat issues. But if you can afford it, go for a dual core FX and oc it to 3Ghz on each core. You'll be faster than comcast.

Ok. so thats 2 votes for the 4200.

Any other thoughts?

anyone else?

perhaps I should ask another (slightly harder question)

Which chip is MOST LIKELY to be a good ocer?

perhaps, which chips have a higher ratio of teh good steppings of their kind in circulation...

I heard newegg has been sending out good steppings on the 165's and 170's. The 170 I just got is LCB9E. After working out some non-cpu issues I took it up to 2.8 no problem and it's 12 hours Orthos stable. I'm sure it'll go up to 3GHz but my RAM is giving me some issues right now.

opty 165 is a good bet but more risk than 4200+, probably more OC ability though
There is a low wattage version of the 4400+. I had it a few months back. It didn't overclock very well (or at all for that matter). I think the difference is 110 W and 85W, but i could be wrong.

I'd say a X2 4200-x2 4800 ae all very good choices. I personally went with the X2 4600.
Nope, you can hit 2.7 no problem with them pretty much no matter what. If you get a good stepping (which can be found lots of places) you can hit 3.0

I'd say go with the 165. If you're looking for a good OCer, you can't beat more than 1GHz above stock speeds. My experience with the X2 set.... pitiful. I had a 4400+ (as stated above) and i couldn't raise it above like 2.7 GHz (i was trying to hit 250 FSB). Switched to the 165 and now I can run at just under 3.1 (takes a lot of Vcore, but i can do it). On stock volts and even with a bad stepping, you should be able to hit 2.7 no problem. With a good stepping, and a bit of vCore, you can hit 3.0 on Air cooling. With a bad stepping and a lot of vcore, you should be able to hit 2.9 (but you'll need good cooling)





Hey!!!! If you check out the FS threads, you'll find this:

nah - no way I'll be able to afford an opteron.

I'm looking at either a 3800+ or 4200+ later down in the year (IF I get a job this summer).

I just bought binormalkilla's X2 3800+ he had it at 2.7 on 1.5v. I'll let you know what I can crank it up too with a lil more voltage. I'd go with the cheapest dual core you can find (which will be the 3800) You get the power of 2 cores a almost guaranteed clock of 2.7 and a good chance of going higher.

Thanks Yea! ^_^

you do that - I'm anxious.

And thanks for the lil advice there - you're prolly dam right.
THE CHEAPEST one

(esp seeing that they all will reach around 2.7 ghz ^_^ )

btw - do you really think that at THE CURRENT OC.

that chip would beat your chip in most applications? (your 3700+)
