Pssh. Give me an AM3-sized socket amd eight cores. Actually, these would make pretty good server chips. Low clocks, pretty good efficiency and power, and lots of cores. Remember, Opterons and Xeons don't really need high clockspeeds, so these would be perfect cores for that purpose.

I've made that mistake before. You know how when you overclock data gets corrupted and then you crash? Well PCIe (if your SATA controller is on PCIe) or SATA overclocking does just that! It takes the data that's being ready to be read or written to disk and garbles it up! I lost a ton of data, pretty much everything I wrote to my hard disks that day...
Huh. That sound like a bad thing. Interesting, the instability from too high a bclk implies AMD didn't disconnect them.
