How much can you OC a Amd 165 Opteron ?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey there people. I am planning on building a system with a Amd opteron 165 denmark in it. I have been looking at newegg and it seems oem model comes with more L1 cashe. My goal is 3ghz what do you think I can hit with these specs.

DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR
AMD Opteron 165 Denmark 1GHz FSB 2 x 1MB L2 Cache 128kbL1 Cashe per core
OCZ Titanium 2GB (2 x 1GB)
Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000 RPM
eVGA Geforce 7800GT
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS


Help me decide on the heatsink also, Ive been looking at a few but I want the best to try and get that 3ghz stable

I am leaning towards a dual core opteron for OC later down the line. up to a fx-60 performance, because neweggs oem 165 opteron has 128kb+ 128kb L1 cache. That means if I can get it up to 2.8GHZ(Or 3 ) it will be Identical to a 1300$ CPU ?. Maybe 3ghz is possible... with OCing, tweaking. I not overclock till at least the warranty runs out. What do you think...

almost 100% positive you wont hit 3ghz overclock with a opt 165 but nothing is impossible... I would say you should aim for 2.6ghz - 2.8ghz being your best possible overclock especially if your just going with Air cooling,,,

its a good proccessor and can most likely run up to 2.6ghz and get you right up there near those FX-60 speeds,,,

the L2 cache for the OEM and the Retail is exactly the same and you should probably do some research with the search feature on others results with the opteron 165,,,

good luck

The L1 cache is the same...it's probably just a misprint or the spec's are shown in a different format. You will not get to 3.0ghz. You should plan on setting a goal of 2.6-2.7 for your daily use. 2.8 for benching if you like that sort of thing.

Do not focus on L1 cache when selecting a processor, L2 cache is the performance booster.

I was looking at getting a 165 a day or so ago and decided to save the cash and get a 148... but I saw a thread somewhere where they were getting to 2.8 w/ the 165's so that would be something to aim for.

take a look at my thread about a 3700 or 148 and you'll see it... we got off topic and started looking into dual core cpus too.

Your setup looks nice with 3GHZ, you think I could get a 148 OPTERON Chip off newegg, OC with my partS get the 148 from the egg up to 3.0+ GhZ ? But instead get the same heatsink as you cuz i can see its good... thx for inspiration

Dr. l337, you changed the name of your topic from 3800x2 to opty 165. Now i'm gonna have to edit my previous post . The 165 would probably get to the same speeds the 3800 will, but the 165 has double the cache .
I posted on your AMD build thread, and in a day will set you up with an ultimate system for less than what you want to spend.....I'm just not in a good mood tonight...stupid HD's
