Also I heard/read that opterons arent so great for overclocking, so I was hesistant to get one.

Also the old nostalgia of the fx series. I remember when I first build my rig, I was drooling over the fx series but they cost like $1000+. I just decided hey I always wanted the chip and now I get it for a quarter that price.
Hope you got a good OCing FX-60! And please do tell us about your OCing adventures with it once you've put it in your board.

Just as an FYI, I'm afraid you were misled when someone told you (or you read) that "Opterons aren't so great for overclocking." There's a whole lot of us here rocking with Opterons.

Keep at it, Poser my friend!

Agreed. Just check out some of our sigs man. Like mine for example, 1.8Ghz overclocked to 3.0GHz 24/7 happy as can be. That's a 1200MHz overclock (or 67%) for you math majors . I'm always more than happy to convert new 939 overclockers to Opterons...it makes us both happy .

Ooh.

pioneer, EXCELLENT math skillz there.

Most impressive.

(Pssst, everyone: Just so you know, I saw pioneer use a calculator three times to come up with that "67%" figure...

I'm just sayin'... )

ROFL...in all honesty, I do believe you actually DID see my use Windows Calculator 3 times to get that 67%. I believe that was in the old Opteron thread.

And doh! I never even realized OCCT stated the percentage (till AFTER I used calculator 3 different freakin times)!!! <<<<P Chicken = idiot to the max!

Keep at it, Poser my friend!
I will let ya know how the ocin goes. I really need to get an aftermarket cooler though. I have always been scared of liquid cooling, so I want to get some high performance fan or somthing. I was also lookin at this. http://www.epowerhousepc.com/asetek-...nce-p-613.html any suggestions??

Currently I have 4x512 MB RAM at DDR266 in bios, but it is OCd to DDR333 speeds. my current mobo only supports DDR333 speeds with 4 DIMM slots being used. So I was thinking about getting 2x1 GB sticks so I can run them at DDR400 speeds plus I will be able to use a 1T command rate. My current ram absolutely will not run DDR400 speeds nor 1T with 4 sticks. So any suggestions on new ram also??

Oh well about not getting an Opteron. I see you guys can get some really high overclocks. simply emazing!! I'm exited to see how high I can OC my fx-60, but I really need an efficient cooler first.

Cooler wise it all depends on your case to be honest. If you have excellent airflow such as the Thermaltake Armor and Antec 900 cases have....you'll want a Cooler such as the Tuniq Tower or Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. If you have average airflow such as my Apevia case..you'll want something that blows down onto the motherboard...such as a Thermaltake Big Typhoon or Thermaltake BlueOrb II, or Zalman 7000 series. All would be excellent air coolers...price also matters.

If you're unsure of your airflow...best to go with a known good air cooler such as the Big Typhoon (bolt down model ONLY).

RAM Wise:
In my own personal opinion its a waste of money to "upgrade" to 2GB of RAM since you already have 2Gb. If you must....go with the GSkill 2GB kit with red heatspreaders for $99 on newegg.com. Those are great value sticks with tight timings. I would NOT suggest you go for DDR500 or something else out of the ordinary as those will be quite expensive and not really worth the trouble. You've always got a divider....and on 939 setups you've almost got to use one anyway.

Hope this helps.

My mobo only supports ddr400 anyways. So i was thinking of gettin some 2x1 GB of ddr333 Ram and OC it too ddr400 speeds.

I want to upgrade because with 4x512MB sticks, my mobo only supports ddr333 speeds, and I can only run the command rate at 2T.

So if i get 2x1GB sticks supposedly Ill be able to run at ddr400 speeds with 1T.

I will check out those fans though thanks
