the Prescott, but make sure you have aftermarket cooling

definitely the prescott. it was designed with high clock speeds in mind but like apokalipse said you definitely need decent cooling. the northwood cores are reasonable overclockers but are not particularly impressive. willamette cores are useless

sorry, SHAWN is definitely right. i completely forgot about the 65nm cores slipped my mind because i don't hear about the cedar mill's often, just the preslers. the 65nm cedar mill core has the same characteristics that make the prescott great for overclocking plus its a 65nm core rather than the 90nm die process of the prescott. in other words like SHAWN said it runs cooler so should overclock further. it also has the advantage of having double the L2 cache of the prescott core

I like the freezer 64 pro due to its easy instalation
