Hi Guys,
I wanna go for a Winnie 3000+ but I heard on another forum that a Winnie 3200+ might be better coz of the 10x multiplier.
Oc'ing Potential seems to be very similar...

What do you guys think?

greetings cyberstar

you can get insanely high FSB with a 3000...but you will most likely get a higher clock out of the 3200 provided you have the best ram, cooling, and mobo money can buy

If u don't have the greatest ram and want to OC get the 3200+, If u do have good ram u can go with the 3000+ but then again why buy the good ram if u are gonna cheap out on your cpu
. I think the 3200+ is the sweet spot for AMD for price/function/ocability. Allthough u can get about the same speed with the 3000+ u will have to push your ram 11% harder then with the 3200+ (9x compared to 10x multi)

I have NEVER been more pleased with a processor in my entire life than I am with this 3000+ Winnie that I'm running. I have a great set of surrounding components that have let me sky rocket this sucker to 4000+ speeds with aircooling.

3200 if u have leser ram as than higher fsb will help u out (hey the multis down locked ne way) or the 3000 if u have v good high fsb ram!- (its more likley that the 3200 wil be a better piece of silicon and so may have higher oc potential)

Thx for reply guys. I'll go for a 3200+ I think coz I got 2x512 MB Infineon DDR-400 CL2.5 and thats not really good mem. Probably I'll buy a Antec PSU and an ABit NF7 this month for my lil xp-m and blast him to hell first!
Whats the fastest xp-m superpi time here? Anyway. I'll look for myself...

Check your memory modules against the board you are going to buy at the MB providers website. With the ASUS board it was critical to use approved/tested memory for OC purposes.

Managed to get 275 FSB on my 3000 Winny.

Sure I'll check that. But my Question is: Can I use Mem Divider on my Winnie without a big performance loss coz my mem maxes out @ 220-230?
