Stepping codes are found at the beginning of the second line on top of your Athlon. Examples: "AXIA", "AVIA", "AYHJAR", etc.

They're basically different batches, and newer ones overclock better.

Ok... here's the obvious follow-up question....

How do we know which batch is 'newer'?

Is there a place to see when each batch was made or something?

There is a website that has a database of Athlon CPUs by stepping, showing you how far each will overclock. Can't remember which site it is, though. I'll probably remember, give me a few minutes.

I hope they get the new site up soon.

Thanks, it obviously was taking me more than a few minutes to remember :tongue:
