The opteron tends to overclock better. They use a little bit better goods to produce them.

Opteron 148s have been known to repeatidly hit 2.9-3GHz on air. They are tough as nails because they are built for servers. Same thing as a 3700 but the optys are rated much higher.

Just like everyone said, the optys are better ocers but tend to run alittle hotter.

Opterons are tested more strictly. Most are the prime CPUs of the batch but you may not always get one thats better than a 3700+.

For the most part, you should be able to overclock more but this isn't the case all the time.
