The X2 5000+ should be able to match the 6000+. If not, it's not noticeable. Plus, the 5000+ runs cooler, because it uses the 65nm, as opposed to the 6000+'s 90nm.

If you are overclocking though, you should get an aftermarket cooler. And I would suggest the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro. It's only $20 at newegg.com.

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with AMD's way of overclocking, but nagasama and Apokalipse are. You should shoot them your questions.

yeah im kinda good at amd overclocking as well. managed 3.0ghz on a 3600+ windsor 2.0. and got 2.99 on a 3200+ 939 cpu (forgot the core, sold the pc about 8 months ago)

anyways, get the 5000+ black, we can guide you on how to get to some good frequency's pretty stable, and with the extra $50 you save, you can get a better heatsink to help with your temps.

The ACF64Pro is basically the best bang for your buck cooler for the AM2 processors.
