I don't think it took more than 2 hours really to lap any of the 4 I've lapped.
They each had a similar low spot in the center. A 3700+, an Opty170, and 2 180s.

Do you apply pressure? You could also be using a higher quality sandpaper. The stuff I used would wear out after about 10 minutes and even the 220 grit would turn in to 1000 grit after not too long.

It seems that all AMD cpus have that low spot in the center.

I bought it at the local auto parts store, probably intended for body work. I do apply as much pressure as possible. I basically apply pressure, to the foam that comes in the clamshell, with the tips of 2 fingers. I usually go ~50 strokes back and forth in each direction. Sometimes 100 strokes, but that gets my arm tired. Too much like work.

By the way guys:

For anybody wondering if a highly clocked Opteron is a "bottleneck" to today's games, stay tuned here in the club . Once my Athlon II x4 gets here, I'll do some side by side runs between my Opteron @ 3.0GHz and my Athlon II x4. I'll also test various clock speeds, and with the Athlon II clocked as high as it goes. I'll test all sorts of games as well .

For comparison's sake, I COULD throw in my Athlon 64 3000+ into the ring as well. Although I already KNOW that a single core K8 is a bottleneck to today's games.

Anyway, I'll let you guys know once I'm starting with the testing.

I was actually just wondering about whether or not my Opty180 @ 2.8GHz was going to be a bottleneck paired up with 2xHD4890s, so I'll be interested in the results.

Well, I am just awaiting my DDR2 to arrive. My CPU and board should be here later today .

To make it "fair" you should disbale 2 of the cores (if you can with your board) and then run them clock for clock.
I personally only noticed a difference in games with my 720. Other than that it wasn't really any faster than the Opty. But of course benchmarks like cinebench also had a marked improvement, but even the 720 crawled at a snails pace compared to the i7. Not like it matters though since I only game and type papers.

I can say with utmost certainty that yes, it most definitely will be. You'll maybe see a 1000 point improvement in 3dmark06, if that, when going from a single GPU to crossfire.

You really need a CPU ~3.5GHz to see the true potential of those cards in crossfire.

My opty 165 at 2255MHz is perfectly capable of handling Crysis at "medium" resolution, with high settings. I think the Opty's really only struggle once the resolution gets pumped up to like 1600x1200....

Pretty sure a 3000+ would be a waste of time. I haven't even been tempted to put my 4000+ San Diego into my PURE and attempt to OC it. It's a waste of time because the benefits are so little. Even though it can probably break 3.5 with a little effort. I just run it at stock.

If you can get one, a 140 Sempy unlocked would be the same spec-wise related to cache size.
Mine will unlock and it's handled everything I have to throw at it - In my case that's not saying much since my GPU's (And games ) are older ones now but I can't tell a difference between these chips.

Biggest difference would be speeds in MHz you could run it at with stability. My 140 unlocked will go around 3.2 - 3.3 no prob. Most good 939's can go about 3.0 before it gets too unstable to game with. I've been running it as a single core at 3.5 and it does just as well as my 175 Opty ever did with temps staying well below 40C.

SH4 can be a test using time compression to see how hard you can bog down the system when doing that.

Thanks for prodding me to do the RMA N2. Worked out well for me.
