90nm core
Which proc. would be better to overclock to FX-55 speeds? (2.6ghz) I understand that it is more stable to overclock a 3500+ and it is also possible to get the 3500+ to 2.8ghz? So all in all, which proc. is better to overclock based on stability, heat and headroom for overclockability?
Also which components would I need in order to overclock it. So far my computer parts are as follows, although I haven't ordered any of them:
3200+ or 3500+
XP-90 with Panaflo 92mm and AS5
MSI K8N Neo 2 platinum
OCZ 3200 platinum edition rev. 2
Geforce 6800GT (Planning to overclock it to ultra speeds) with NV Silencer
74gb Raptor (74gb is enough room for me)
Audigy 2 Platinum
5Panaflo case fans 80mm
Antec 1080AMG Plus with 430W TruePower PSU

In order to overclock either proc(including the overclocked 6800gt), would the XP-90 and 430W PSU be suffice, or would I require "better" parts. Lastly, what kind of noise level can I expect from the computer with all these parts and is there anything I could do to lower it if it is unbearble? Thanks for any input!

Great system specs, only thing I might change is the PSU. Overclocking like that might require something a bit more substantial. The Powerstreams look very nice for overclocking. Also, the XP-90 should be a great choice for heatsink. Not sure about the noise, but that is a lot of fans.

Well i cannot speak for the 3500, But the 3200 works welll.
I just helped a pal cobble together a system based on a amd64 3200 with a msi neo plat and 2g of kingston hyperX
252fsb with 10x multi Aircooled,no voltage tweaks.

benched stable, was like 27k 3dmark 01, 68k aquamark

Not bad for a $250 chip

i've got 5 case fans, a cpu fan and a fan on my graphics card and the noise for me is perfectly fine. i'm never doing anything in silence so nothing is really audible. noise really depends on what case you have.
