And yea you should get a new heatsink and fan if you're gonna overclock.
Thank you. I guess that'll be 11 orders for Newegg, 1 for ZipZoomFly .

^ What he said.

And yes, the Zalman will greatly benefit you. Opterons get to their high speeds with little voltage, however they run hotter than Athlon 64s, so a new HSF will indeed help. Also, may I suggest getting Arctic Silver 5 thermal compund? Its only $6 and can reduce your temperatures as much as 15*C in some cases, over the course of 2 weeks. Average temperature decrease due to AS5 is around 7-10*C, VERY good for $6.

12 orders for newegg? Lol.

It has been in my PC list on the first post, hehe. I tried not to leave out a single detail on anything I was purchasing for the PC.
