Default to overclock, i was told to get an early 3200?

Ok i was reading a post here on tf and i saw one about oc your cpu and how the newer amds, 3200 for example, are getting worse and worse at oc'in and only the early versions made in the first 17 weeks i think are really good. Is this true and would it be worth me finding someone who might have an early one.

Yea, its true. But there are still Venices that'll overclock like crazy.

You can try and find someone that has it, though I wouldn't count on actually finding someone.

It can't be 2-3 years ago. We're in like week 39 or something. Maybe early forties. The processor came out April 4th, 2005, I think.
