I've heard that certain rev/steppings of the X2 CPUs are better for oc'ing than others. Is this true and if so which rev/stepping is best for my CPU and how can I find this out just from the strings of numbers found on the surface of the actual CPU??

I just bought my AMD X2 4200+ today. I haven't got all the rest of the parts for my new PC so I haven't taken it out of the box yet which is why I can't use CPUID to find this out.

Thanks very much for your help...

[Edit] I eventually worked out how to tell which rev my CPU is. It is rev E4 (not E6). So anyone know which rev is better for oc'ing??? Would appreciate your help, thanks.
