Opty 180

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just ordered one from the Egg and I can't wait to start playing with it. I know some of you might say that I should have gotten the 165, but I have my reasons for getting the 180 and I'm excited.

This is going to be my first overclocking experience and I just wanted to have a higher starting point. Also, I'm not sure if I would be able to push my motherboard fast enough with the low mutiplier on the 165.

ic your reason, but the 165 can clock much higher than the other 1xx series Opterons. Even with the higher multiplier, most 165s are able to OC higher than say 170s or 175s. I've read lots of reviews of disappointment when people tried to get a 170+ Opteron for the higher multiplier but weren't able to clock it as high if they had gotten a 165. Those 165s are little monsters

it depends on what stepping you get, i had the worst stepping 170 and got it to 2.8 on h2o and was happy with its performance, if his board cant handle the high fsb then it wouldnt do him andy good getting the best ocing low multi cpu anyways, a good stepping 170 or 180 will still get a high oc jsut wont be as big of an oc since your startinga t a higher speed

enterprise 1701 has an opty 180, but he's not overclocking it yet. i haven't seen many high numbers on it though from XS. 165/170's seem to get the highest overclock. i'd say your motherboard should have been able to get 3 ghz on a 165 =/

i dont think there are alot of reviews on the 180 because most people dont or didnt buy them so there werent many being overclocked, kind of like the am2 opteron, you cant find anything on those guys because not many people bought them and those that did didnt oc them
