I'm debating between a core duo 2 6300 and an athlon X2 of some sort for my next build. I'm thinking I might go the core duo route but I don't know yet, too soon to tell...

Cuz maybe it's a handpicked chip? 3.6Ghz 24/7 on high end water (as in Storm or MP-05 SP LE and Thermochill rad) is doable, unless you have a dud chip. But 3.7 might require more voltage and good ambient temperatures.

Heh, I could care less about overclocking. The Core 2 Duo is already faster than anything at stock speeds.

"What make san Athlon 64 so good?" Nothing. An intel Core 2 Duo E6300 is good. And what makes that good? Cheap prices, 4x the performance.
