Yes the 4400 and 4800 is the toledo core.

Thread Starter 
the Opty 165 only comes in s939... was thinking using AM2 because of the DDR2's (planning to use 2gb Corsair XMS2 C4 ddr2-800)
also i notice the Opty 165 has 1000mhz HT while the x2 3800+ has 2000hmz HT...whats the performance difference? and what are some stable OC's of the Opty?
thanks

The Opterons especially the 165 are vry stable when overclocking. Im not sure about the HT difference though.

What makes you say that? We're talking about the AM2 4800 here right? Are you thinking of skt939 4800's hitting 2.7? I barely even seen anyone else using this chip on these boards let alone oc'ing it. I don't know where your getting 2.7 on avg bc I hit 3.1 easy on this and 2.8 on the x2 4000 AM2 chip with the 1mb L2 cache as well (this chip even did 2.8 at stock voltage, could have pushed higher but 10x max multi and I was hitting my HTT limit around 280). Haven't seen many ppl even picking these up since C2D hit.

The AM2 X-2's are a total different animal from the S939 X-2s. I've not seen a chip yet be unable to make 2.8GHz (if temps stay within reason). Granted, I've only two AM2 builds personally under my belt, but the 4600+ had to stop at 2.73GHz @ 1.475vcore because the chip was verging on 60C+ at higher clocks/voltage. My other 4200+ X-2 will go past 2.4GHz at 1.4vcore but the temps are out of control at 60C+ on the stock heatsink.(It's following the same voltage curve as the 4600+)

Long story short, the new AM2 X-2's are pretty damn good overclockers. Good enough that no one has even TRIED the Opterons to speak of.

I suspect that Opterons will indeed be like the S939 Opterons but just to a lesser degree... so the money saved will matter more to most (including me) considering you still can get a decent overclock from the X-2's.

I though we were talking about the s939 AMD-4800 X2, and not the AM2 versions.
