I would overclock this cpu and put the extra money saved into a premium heatsink/fan

they only have a few assembly lines for cpu's, they test them and according to demand set the timings, my entry level single core amd64/939 overclocked 45% with little or no voltage increase or extra heat

mid level one might be lucky to get 20-25 % overclock, high end one 10%

give me a damn good heat sink fan anyday

mine is idling at 36C at 25% overclock, it's 2 years old
