Default Which Core Is Right For Me?

Well I want to get a new amd athlon xp 2100+ that is extremely overclockable and I think I found the one I wanted- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...103-370&depa=1 but when I found this review on newegg I got sort of discouraged-

"Installed this chip in a Shuttle AK31 since it was the max supported. That was for a palomino. Whoops this is a thoroughbred. OK Well to make a long story short had to clear cmos to post. I had been running a Xp1800 palomino 11.5x136 anything on fsb more caused stability problems and it had locked multiplier.It ran 41 idle 47 after gaming. This chip boots up at 20x100 2ghz as default with unlocked multiplier. With my board the highest multiplier I can get is 13 even though 14 is shown. Best I could do was 13x140 for 1.82 ghz. That also proved eventually to be unstable. 13x133 stock was the only stable combo I could get. But then it wouldn't always post. Oh well 20x100 2 ghz stable, posts, cool (34 at idle 40 after gaming and benchmarking burn ins). Really can't complain, the only thing holding this chip back is my board. 2ghz
$73 delivered nuff said."

It has the palomino core that I guess is what my board supports.
So which should I get? And what does this mean- "OK Well to make a long story short had to clear cmos to post." ?

I need to know which one runs cooler (very very important) and which is the most overclockable.

imo, the most overclockable athlon xp's core is barton.

Well I don't think they make a 2100+ barton core athlon xp. I'm guessing the palomino would be hotter because the core voltage is 1.75 unlike the thoroughbred's 1.65v.

I guess you aren't reading this thread, The fastest I can get with this mobo is a 2100+.
