trying to find my cpu's revision so I can estimate what I can do for an oc within relitive ease...
I just really don't want to unseat my processor and clean it look at it for 10 seconds or less and reseat it.

using Cpuz my cpu's revision is DH-E6
But everywhere I look it says the E6 is a dual core... Mine is definetly not a dual core...
are there singel core e6's?

thanks.

Oh, and can anyone recommend a decent heatsink/fan that won't produce a lot of noise, and preferably doesn't require me to change the backplate on my Asrock 939 dual sataII mobo?

thanks again.

edit--
Current OC is at 2.3Ghz Stock HS/F 42-43c under full load (prime 95)
Not going to go any higher untill I get a better HS/F.
After I get a decent fan, it's going to be at least 2.4 Might try for 2.5 or even 2.6

it looks like you have a Venice E6 chip. i hear that Venice does really well when it comes to OCing. iv also heard that the E3 Venice did better OCing than the E6 but im sure it will OC well. as far as the heatsink, the stock one should be pretty quiet. how fast is it spinning at?

for what i heard of, venice got E3 and E6, maybe even new E4 stepping that's previously reserved for bettering cores. so your E6 stepping is not wrong.
i got a question my self, in between E3 and E6, which one is newer? which one oc better, do you have a review or article on that? thx.

Follow this link

Enter the Athlon64 in the top box, 3200+ in the model number & E6 in the revision. There's two hits.

yep its a venice (i had one and chip number ended bw) i overclocked with standard volts to 2500 with ease in one go, got a bit hot so left it 2300 till i got an arctic freezer pro. new cooler mens chip out soo give it a go at 2250 (just up the htt in the bios) but drop your ram to 166 at same time as at 22500 it will most likely crash!!!. load mbm5 or similar temp monitor to keep an eye on temps and check you stock temp before you start the o/c to see how much affect its having on temps, these cpus go to 60 degrees max so aim for 40 ish under load

Revisions got a First Name and Last Name, and because we always used the Last Name, when you must use the other one too it adds to confusion. For example, both Clawhammer and Newcastle had a Rev. CG Last Time even though actually the full Revision is SH-CG and DH-CG respectively.
The Venice that you got is a Rev. DH-E6 one, Toledos are JH-E6. If you use the Last Name, then you will think that both are Rev. E6, when they are not. The same happens with those mythical Venice Rev. E4, that in truth are Manchester BH-E4 with an entire Core disabled, not to be confused with San Diegos SH-E4 neither.

Thanks for all the info. It's greatly appreciated.

I've been doing some reading on how to OC an A64 properly and it seems my mobo doesn't like to up or lower the HTT... the only option it actualy allows modification of is the multiplier...
and that kinda scares me.. heh heh... seemingly as that is rather large steps between each multiplier...

.. bleh..

what kind of mobo you got there? that's actually pretty good for oc if you could jut tweak the multipliers. things would be so much simplier.
