They have the same memory controller, i don't see how such thing possible.
and no, the Opterons OC way further then the regular Athlon, so it cannot be cause by a "slight difference" in the memory controller.
For instance, ncsa took his 146 as far as 3.4 GHz on bare air!.
Most of the regular socket 939 motherboards might have trouble running an Opteron, as they don't officially supported by any PC platform mobo.
Tho, i can confidently say that the DFI mobos run Opterons smoothly.
be aware of the PSU you're getting, DFI mobo tend to be picky about the PSU.
Good luck with your new rig!.
