I'd say past 2.6ghz, which this seems to be able to do. I would go with the 148 personally, so you have a more even match to the 3700+'s starting point. Plus it's nearly the same price. Although it is a few bucks cheaper on Monarch: http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merch...ory_Code=amdop
So gaara, will that opteron with the 2mb L2 cache overclock to 3ghz? How much of a difference does the extra mb of L2 cache make?
110watts, that is alot of power consumption!
What the hell, the Opteron 165 costs $175 more on Newegg than it does on ncix! Yes I calculated for ncix's CAD prices, and it came out to like $308 USD. It is $475 USD on Newegg!
Edit, nvm I see it's a dual core that's why
Is it a completely new processor? If so it's an early one then? With AMD's past it should turn out to be an excellent overclocker, at least for the earliest ones.
