Got CPUs... now what ...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok, I bought a pair of Opterons from eBay for $65. They were advertised as Opterons 2212 HE's (Santa Rosa) like these ones: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819105157

I received the chips today (not very well packaged, but ok...), and they actually are a pair of 8212 HE's, which is a slightly different beast:

Mine are actually the newer F3 revision... Not a bad pick up for $65

No idea... I lack a mobo that supports them I am thinking about picking up a board as cheap as I can that works with them ($150 or so), and if they work just fine, they might go back to eBay right away with the board

hahaha The trick is finding an overclockable board that supports the 8xxx series of Opterons.

Yeah, I'll probably end up keeping them. Even though they are expensive in retail, there isn't too much of a market for them. Those who do buy them will buy them retail given warranty and such.
