am2 opteron in a tforce 550?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hey everyone, I've wanted a larger case for awhile now, and I've wanted to overclock further so I am going to start planning my new computer. I want to use an opteron 1212 (2.0ghz) santa ana, in a biostar tforce 550, will it work? I noticed the board doesn't support opteron, but supports athlon FX, aren't they the same core? will it overclock above 3ghz?

Thanks

Yes the opteron will work in that motherboard, people have already run Opty's in that exact motherboard

The opteron's usually cost a bit more than the X2's, and you've already got a Brisbane that should get to 3Ghz on a Tforce 550, so my question is, why get a new CPU? A new case and motherboard, and maybe power supply, should be perfectly fine for you.

like I said I want to overclock more, my motherboard is micro atx, with a video chipset which = not the best overclock, I figure sence I am buying another case and motherboard to be able to overclock, I could buy $150 of extra stuff, and have another computer to play with.

Well, if it's for a second computer, I guess it works fine. But if you were just upgrading your current one, I would recommend keeping your current CPU.

would the brisbane perform as well as the opteron (at the same clock)?

I am selling an x2 4000+ which has a 10.5x multi
http://www.overclock.net/sale/216194...rge-cloth.html

Should go further than the x2 3600+..

The 4000+ this stepping also hits 3Ghz with like 1.44v

Opty's are more for the server environment so depending on which apps you run the Brisbane may be the better option.

The Brisbane can OC to around 3GHz which is as good as any Opty. Look into just a new board.

If the reason he can't go past 2.6 is due to the FSB wall than he can just move to like an x2 4000+ and sell his 3600+. The processor costs less than the board.

I didn't see where he said the FSB was his problem.
