Just found a thorton in a local shop and was wondering if any body had any experience with it:
The guy that owns the shop insists it's a Barton and wants 133.00 (retail package). week of manufacture makes it a probable thorton with a 256 cache so maybe I can get him to come down a little (a lot?). So do you think it ought to reach 2.5-2.6 on water? Anybody got a line on a 1700 or 1800 fot an extreme OC?

Will he guarantee it is a Barton??? If he will take it home and test it under CpuZ, If it is not take a screen shot of it and take the chip and tell him to test it himself if he does not beleive you, and then request a refund,and get a chip some where else

I was gonna show him an AMD proc recognition sheet to leverage him down on price. He's got three of these and I was just curious if anyone had any thoughts or experience with this proc?

Ich don't think so, it's a week 31 Thoroughbred, see where it says AIXHB, if it were a Thorton, the second letter would be Q.
DKV3C  x 16 = 2133 MHz T-Bred B, Last letter of the code is B or
DKV3D  x 12.5 = 2083 MHz T-Bred B, Last letter of the code is B
except if the second letter of the code is Q -- then it's a DKV3D Thorton. or
DKV4D  x 11.5 = 1917 MHz Barton, Second letter of the code is Q
This chip is likely not going to reach anything higher than a $62 2100+ from newegg.
2.6 is extremely rare.
2.5 is reachable with top notch power supply and of course cooling on a 1700+ or 1800+ DLT3C B (not A).

thanks "c627627", That's what I was looking for! I'll take a pass on these. I'm trying to find a nice proc to do an extreme OC on so if anyone has a lead drop me a PM. Thanks

Well you might not find this funny but at least it is unlocked
Good point about the Q not being in the stepping,c627627.
you would probably better off, if you need another chip just find an Unlocked 1800 or 1700 of the DLT3C persuasion, most of those will get you above 2500+ speeds with some decent Air cooling.
Heck I have a DUT3C that is doing 2ghz in my Sig and it hardly breaks a sweat
