Default Which CPU for OC?

Which CPU is best for OC'in?

X2 3800
X2 4200
400+ (SD)

Both the 4200 and the 4k are the same price, but everyone here seems to be OC'in the 3800's? How come apart from saving £50 is there anything else I should know about since, I'd think the 4200, would OC one nock higher...?

The opteron 165 would be your best bet if your going to overclock.

An operon 165 or a toledo core X2 (X2 4400 or 4800)
The San diego core is also a good overclocker, but stick to the 3700 if you go that route. Its cheaper and they will both end up at the same speeds if you overclock.
