Probrably using them as Rana core chips since those also have the disabled L3 cache you can unlock sometimes.
The 740BE should be a good one since the Heka core chips use a lower default voltage than others like it. They also tend to run cooler because of that and make for great gaming chips.
My 720BE has been terrific since I got it and yes, it's one that can go above 4.2 in spite of it's C2 stepping and runs cool - However it doesn't unlock the extra core.
As cheap as it is with it's L3 cache and the possibility of getting the extra core, I'd say it's worth getting. In fact I was wanting to get another Heka chip but right now I have other things going on $$-wise keeping me from doing that.
