oc'ing on this thing ( 2500 barton ) is wild , and its stable like a rock . Have tryied the 2600xp , over heated fast! not sure about the 2400, and the 1800mp was also stable ,currently working on a 3200just to see what i can get it to do!
the Barton's are for the Athlon XP's, although you are right that they are the top core for its class of CPU
the Athlon 64's core's are:
clawhammer - the first ones, and I think some of the socket 939's use this core
newcastle - used in socket 939 only, and is newer than the clawhammer's
winchester - this is the 90nm core, it doesn't need as much power because it is smaller, so it runs cooler, and is more overclockable. also the performance is about 5% better than newcastles at the same frequency
