This is just for the people who dont know much about Athlon 64's, not a guide though. For those of you who dont know, all Athlon 64's except the FX's are made on the same assembly line. So basically they are Athlon 64 ####. They are then tested at the set perfromance level of the 2800, 3000, and so on. Once the max stable level is met by a processor they are kept there and marketed at that level. The FX's are made seperatly then the other 64's, but are tested the same way. Not really that helpful, but its just something to think about when Overclocking, they are all the same.

Well think about, of course they're all the same, they all use the same cores. It's same thing when you buy a mobile processor, still the same core except it was tested for the default clock speed at a lower core voltage, so that means you're pretty much assured of better overclock room with more voltage.
