Witch CPU would be fast as far a overclocking and gaming?

AMD Opteron 150 Venus

AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego

This would be a on a DFI Expert Mobo W/ 2 gigs of a ram w/ a Venus 12 than later on a custom WaterCooler

I found a couple a reviews on the 150 but not many on the 4000+

The venus core is for s940 you want a s939 pwnteron (san diego).

Do your research and buy carefully: most of the ones that were relabeled fx-57 are gone (cabne) and youll prob end up with a reg san diego core anyway.

If you plan on serious overclocking you'll be wasting your money on the 4000, it has a x12multi that you probably wont use, the 3700 has the same features except x11 multiplier for quite a bit less. If you don't plan on ocing get the 4000 cause you're at least guarnteed the 2400mhz.

Both are basically FX-53's with a locked multi.

Actually, the Venus is the 939.
Troy and Athens are 940s
The stepping is the bottom line for OCability though and yes, the CABNE is the current STAR along side the CABYE 0540

Best to least below complements of another member, sorry I don't recall who posted this ...
1.) CABNE any up to 0540
2.) CABYE 0540
3.) CABNE 0540
4.) CABYE other than 0540
5.) CAB2E
6.) CABGE
