Help choosing opteron!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so i was going to purchase a opteron 144 but i cant find any with any of the top steppings apart from ebay for stupid amounts of money . But i can get hold of a 146 with a CABNE stepping. So what i wanted to know is do they overclock aswell as the 144 and are they worth the extra money.

Thanks!!!

In general, they seem to o/c just as well, if not a little better. What is the week of the stepping as 0540s aren't particlarly good?
There are also a few CACJE 0546s knocking around that seem to be performing extremely well:

They seem a bit hit and miss from what I've seen. How much are they? If they're about the same price as the CACJEs then I'd take the CACJE.

Its around £30 more expensive than the 144. I think i'm going to carry on looking for the 144 CABNE. Maybe if i sweet talk the wife she will let me spend the extra £ on ebay.

Thanks!!

All the opty steppings generally overclock well, the good ones might only OC 100-200 more than the others..
