What are the main differences between the Opty 148 and the 3700+?

Also which should i get? Or even the 4000+ ?? What will that extra 12x multiplier do for me?

I accually did look, i searched the forums tho. I found that people prefered the 3700+ because it was more stable with overclocking. But this doesnt help me that much.

The difference between a 3700+ San Diego and an Opteron 148 is the name that's etched on the heatspreader. For all purposes we should concern oursevles with, they're exactly the same chip, just different names. Popular opinion is to get the Opteron because the chances of getting a highly overclockable chip are higher than those with the 3700+. Especially lately, there seems to be plenty of the new CACJE 0546 stepping going around, and they're exceptional overclockers (mine does 2.8GHz on 1.375v). The 4000+ San Diego really isn't work getting unless you have really crappy RAM, otherwise the x12 multiplier really doesn't do a whole lot for you.
