3400+ Or 3700+?


Recommended Posts

So I'm buying a Shuttle SN85G4 barebones system and I can't decide between a 3400+ and a 3700+. I figure that I can OC the 3400 to 3700 speeds for a lot less, but a second opinion is always good

The 3700+s are all CG revision chips, meaning they will probbaly do 2.5-2.6Ghz on air, but I HIGHLY doubt that even a 3700+ could do more than that. I've owned a variety of A64 chips and the C0 cores useually top out around 2.3-2.4GHz regardless of model and the CGs top out at slightly over 2.5GHz. That is assuming good, but not extreme air cooling and a safe vcore. Another 100Mhz more with better cooling and more voltage is a posibility, but any more than that and I'm quite sure you would need sub-ambient cooling.

 

Make sure your system has an AGP/PCI lock if you intend to OC much.
