OK, I'm into buying a new CPU because mine is a pretty poor OC Voltage is not going over 1,85 and even on that voltage it's not stable on 2,0GHz

My QUestion which would be better for OC
1700+ DLTC3 TbredB
1800+ DLT3C TbredB
or
2000+ DUT3C Thorton?

Some how i'm ore into getting my self a 1700+ cause I ve noticed that its the best OC arround ,what do you think?
Thanks

I have a 2000+ Thorton, it does 2250 MHz at 12.5x180 and 1.8V perfectly stable/prime. Probably goes higher too, haven't tried yet.

Depends on the week of the CPU that you're gonna get, if you get a locked thorton then its not as good as an unlocked TbredB as the Tbred will have a lower multiplier allowing higher FSB speed to max out the chip.
If you get a pre-week 38 Thorton, it might be more worth it as you might be able to reactivate the disabled 256KB of L2 Cache

get the t'bred b....as long as it's a DLT3C JIUHB chip...otherwise the thorton would be a good gamble, following the coolest's remarks....

Well the problem is that a Shop is today getting its last shipment of 1700+, As far I 'm inormed at the moment Rhortons are sold out in teh Copmuter shops in Zagreb /croatia so the posibility of getting a locked Thorton is very high.
OK so it'll be the "magical one" 1700+DLT3C, whish me luck!
