New Cpu

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I recently just got a Asus A2N32-SLI Deluxe and I was looking for a cpu to put in there. Now I was looking at the 5000+ BE and ill most likley end up getting that one, but I was wondering if there is a certain stepping I should be looking for when buying one or are they all the same stepping. Also have these recent batches of BE been able to hit 3.2 and up or are they just sticking at 3.2. Either way 3.2 is good for me thanks.

Personally, I would recommend a 6400 BE, or a Phenom 9850 BE. Depends on how much you have to spend. I believe stepping is the same on the X2s, but the Phenom is different stepping - the B3 stepping is the new (no-bug) stepping. Let us know what you decide on.

The 5000 BE should work just fine for you.... it is a good value for a CPU. There are some different steppings such as CAA9G, NAA9G, etc., but I'm not sure that there is a definite one that is any better than the others.... most will be able to OC somewhere in the range of 3.1-3.3, give or take some MHz.

Hope that helps.... good luck with your purchase!
