Both are C2.

The x3 B73 = a x3 720.

What gfx card will you be running?

I have an x3 720 in one of my M2N32's,it would be a good fit for the 8800gt or 550ti.

Ok I'm definitely planning on an upgrade...

I am very happy with this small and inexpensive upgrade.

Is it worth the potential bugs with the C3 chips or should i aim to find a c2?

From reading over some of the issues with the newer chips it looks like its worth it for me to find a c2. If i were the only user of this rig I don't mind some bugs, but my girlfriend likes to use a desktop on occasion and she can't handle that.

Seems i can find them used fine, so thats not a problem. I assume the major difference is the C3's have a higher overclock ceiling and can be found with an unlocked multi pretty easily? I doubt I'm going to try to go for 4+ ghz so I suppose it doesnt matter.

Looking @ some B93's atm...

I have never heard of any bugs with the C3 chips. From what I understand the C3's run at lower TDP (140w versus 125w in some cases) and have better overclocking capabilities then the old C2 counter parts. I have been running my 970 which is C3 only for almost 2 years without any major issues in my board with 5002.

If you don't mind using the workaround using PMT, the Egg still has 965 black editions for around $110 smile.gif

Interesting, I'm just going off of this quote from page one:
Quote:
Some people have been using the AM3 CPU's like the x4 955 & 965 in these motherboards w/some little work arounds. For example: Several users have reported not being able to coldboot normally w/out having to push the reset button or, F1, F2 or the J Key while coldbooting the system. Some users have reported bugs when using USB keyboards w/the latest updates and and were able to fix this bug by the use of a PS2 keyboard. Additionally other users report being able to fix these little coldboot set backs by downclocking the ram divider to 667MHz in the bios. Here is a direct link to a x4 955 validation on this mobo thanks to our member of this club BigJohn44. Explained in greater detail how to make an AM3 CPU work with a M2N series mobo.
As well as this:

The x4 955 or higher will need the workaround.see first page of this thread.
Gyro
Is this just old information and fixed with 5002?

I'm looking @ these
Which show 95w TDP (albeit @ a reduced 2.8ghz clock speed)

@Lucky

I recommend you get a C3 chip as they have a better silicon which means more OC potential.
As i can see from your sig you like the extra power tongue.gif

As for the "bugs" with C3 chips, once the P-State is set with MSR Tweaker or the profile is set
with Ntune (Nvidia Tools) the CPU works jst fine, so your GF wont have any probs tongue.gif
