questions on opterons 144 & 146

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
With my board ( or any other) isn't the highest vcore 1.45? How well do these chips OC at a lower vcore? And isn't the 146 an close equivalent to the 3700 SD?

With your board I thought 1.5 was max. But I may be mistaken. Usually opterons O/C better at less voltage, but not always.

DFI Mobo's can go up to 1.7+ volts and 3700 is equal to a 148 opty

My Opty 144 is pretty voltage hungry. No sweet spots or tricks, it has a direct relationship between voltage and stability.
