The X2 3600+ is really good. I got it to 2.6Ghz and it was outperforming my Core2 rig.

</div>you serious ?<br />
<br />
the best would be the fx 62 or the x2 5000<br />
<br />
however ram really effects amd's so ultra low latency ram is a must <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

</div>The X2-5000 is already clocked at 2.6gHz what will do better?

As mootin just said, the FX-62, which is 2.8 GHz and has 2x1Mb L2 cache.

The topic is "the best one to O/C. Neither the FX-62 nor the X2 5000+ can OC for *&#!. The X2 3800+ or the 3600+ would oc the best by far.<br />
<br />
*EDIT* - Btw, teh 5000+ has half the cache of the other X2s so it is by no means that fast. The X2 5200+ is the one with the full cache but IMO they are all wastes at the moment.

well the fx62 and the x2 5000 both need ddr2 800 , so that ram will be a huge let down and will decrease performance <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />

<br />
something like would be a good choice, however if you could find ddr2 800 with a cas 3 rating that would be even better <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
and i didnt even think there was a x2 5200 :|<br />
<br />
<br />
the fx 62 will/should overclock the best, however only with phase or high water

</div>True, the X2 3600 and 3800 are the best OCers. At one point he assked what is the best CPU at stock (or som' like that) and that's the FX62

</div>I didnt but when i said O/C the best i meant the fastest. So could you get an X2 3800 runnin faster than the X2 5000 or FX 62?<br />
<br />
Or should I go with a X2 4800 (939) and overclock higher than an X2 5000 or FX 62?

the x2 3800 wont beat the fx62 if they were at the exact same speeds, the x2 3800 has less cache , which in the end makes a slight difference , not much of a difference but still.<br />
<br />
If your running air cooling than the x2 3800 should be a good option, as recently they have been getting to around the 3ghz mark.<br />
<br />
That said , the fx62 can get to 3ghz with just a multi change.<br />
<br />
Your best bet is to get a conroe/allendale rig anyway.

Yeah, don't go AMD at all. I could OC mine like a cinch and destory any AM2 rig you could cook up. Sorry bro, core2 is the way now.

That's a different story. The thing is that with stock air cooling all the AMD CPUs cap around 3.0 GHz or if very lucky at 3.1GHz.<br />
The thing is the FX62 @2.8GHz caps just a bit higher-3.0GHz, not much of an OCer. I think the X2 4200 reaches 3.0GHz also, but the X2 3600 and X2 3800 cap around 2.7 GHz. <br />
To get the best performance/$ I would say it's the X2 4200 which can reach 3.0GHz and doesn't cost a fortune. If more budget-contious you could try to get the 3600 up to 2.6 - 2.8GHz.

dragosmp you forget that none of the high end amd's ( fx series and high x2 series ) are meant for normal cooling, with phase most get around the 4ghz mark <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Phase is about $1,000. If you have that much money, get an E6700 and ti will destory the FX62 even with phase.<br />
<br />
E6600s have know to get way past 3ghz. Some have been sighted at 3.4. That is absolutely amazing since thier multiplier is 9 therefore, FSB is easier to attain.

home made phase isnt <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
well the e6600's are getting around the 3.6ghz mark on air, water / phase expect a bit more <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
the e6700 is the same as the e6600 with a higher multi and slightly better stock speeds, if you want the best overclock than the e6700 will be better, if you dont think the overclock justify's the extra cash then the e6600 will still be amazing <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

</div>looks like E6600 is the one for me unless the E6700 is clocking at 4gHz after O/C... lol
