The 3700 comes w/fan+heatsink the 4000 is faster and does not come with a fan+heatsink.
If you have a fan+heatsink thats fits the 4000 is better.

I say the 4000 cos i own one and overclock it to 3ghz very easy with a arctic freezer 64 pro max temp under extreme load is 43c i run it at this 24/7 never had a problem and its at default voltage.

i would say if your are going to overclock check out the stepping!!

and as your are going to overclock you are not going to want to keep the stock cooler so its a choice between the two, there isnt much in it!!

i have the highest single core amd on this forum atm but im sure a 4000 with the right stepping could beat it!! but id say look for steppings on google and see if you can get one of the two with a good stepping!!

i think mines the safer option im at 3ghz on 1.376v which is just below default and my max temp is 43c only thing i wish i did get is pc4000 ram @500mhz so i can run it matched with my cpu fsb of 250mhz im sure that would push my 3D mark score into the 12000 range

I am actually sat here with my 4000+ at 3.2Gig (24/7) on 1.45V.......now that is a sweet CPU! Some 3700's can clock as well but generally most cant and the 3700 will need more volts.

The sad thing with mine is to get it just to increase from 3.2Gig to 3.27Gig I need to increase volts to 1.575V !!

I have the San Diego 3700+ 2.2ghz stock..I only have it at 2.3ghz right now... I have to get another cooler for it though, because this fan doesn't really keep it that kewl. I can stay under 50 at 2.5ghz at load, but i like to keep my stuff cool.

I guarantee you if you have a good cooler, and you have at least a couple case fans, and a cool room wouldn't hurt, you are guaranteed to get at least 2.7ghz out of it..and up :)

like every1 has said they are both good cpu's! it depends how much cheap the 3700 is compared with the 4000, if you are on a budget get the 3700 and the money u have get a good cooler, as a 3700 will be more safe with a good cooler then a 4000 on a stock cooler
