    Heh, my AMD socket 939 4800 Toledo would clock up past 3 GHz with the Enermax power supply before the supply died... BTW, Jonny, did you guys ever do an autopsy?

    65 nm AM2. I get 2986 stable with it whereas my 939 X2 3800+ was good for 2750 max. Not a major difference but considering that the 3800+ was close to $200 and the 4000+ was $61 shipped makes the 4000+ the bang for the buck master as far as those two are concerned.

    yea, they are the best bang for the buck, you could probably pick one up off of ebay for around $55shipped, i just got a e2180 off of there for that

    I would agree that the inexpensive Intel dual cores are the way to go right now, even though I just bought an X2 4800+ recently which I would also recommend to anyone. Mine is a Brisbane core, and it does 2.9GHz on stock voltage and 3.0GHz with a very small vcore bump. I'm pretty sure those cheap Intel's would wipe the floor with it, though.

    An E2160/80 can often do 3.2+ GHz. Got an E2160 for my spare rig. Really good value.

    8400 and p35/45??

    don't think there's much question about that???

    I mourn the loss of socket 939, pity the ram and cpu's are still stupidly expensive s/h and new fi you can get em.

    E8400 seems to be not much cheaper than a Q6600. I'd probably spend the extra few £ / $ on the quad, I think.
