AMD 3700+ vs 4000+ San Deigo core

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

Seems these chips are exactly the same, both featuring the .09 micron
build, 1mb L2 catch, improved memory controller.  Only diffrence being the
3700 is 200mhz slower, and 120$ cheaper.  And if the chips are identical
in build, then obviously you can OC the lesser to the same lvl as the more
expensive one.

Anybody disagree?  Cause I think at this point Id rather get the 3700+ and
with the money I save use it to build a good water cooling system and thus
beat out the 4000+ with a stock air cooling system, and I belive they both
get the same lvl OCing anyways.

Also the 4000+ is the same as the 800$ FX-55, same senario just 200mhz
slower and it has a locked multiplier.

I plan on OCing to about 2.8 - 3.0 Ghz, and probably upgrading to DDR600
Ram for more OCing options.

I have my 3700+ San Diego OC'd to 2.64 Ghz with Retail HSF @ 1.4V on an ASUS
A8V Deluxe. It runs very stable. I haven't tried to go any higher yet. I've
been running this chip since May.
