Anyone here have this setup: opty 165 on a a8n sli deluxe mobo?

I just recently bought an opty 165 and I would like to know if it would go well with my current mobo. I am thinking of getting the dfi lan party expert mobo in the future, but would like to know first if my opty would oc well on my a8n deluxe.

thanks guys

Sure it will overclock well. Does your motherboard have a HTT/FSB lock on it? That may be your only limiting factor. Because of the 9x mulitplier on that processor this is a big concern to you. If it locks at a 274 HTT then you will only be able to get to 2466MHz and those processors do much better then that. So you might want to find that out about your motherboard if you do not know.

Another thing to consider with DFI boards is that DFI and AMD to not offer support if you run an Opteron processor in a DFI board, and they are not officially supported by DFI. That being said, I have a DFI board and I have not hear of a DFI board that does not support an Opteron Processor. Although DFI does not support it the forum members at DFI Street can offer great help and their are modded bios from members that work well with the Opterons.

Sidenote: You might want to make sure that motherboard can support a Opteron and that there is an updated bios that supports it. Sure there is, but research that definitely.

Edit: From my little bit of searching I have found out that your HTT/FSB can be adjusted from 200MHz to 400MHz so that is great, and there are computers for sale with your motherboard with Opteron configurations. The only advantage the DFI board will have in general terms is a lot more manipulation of memory and a lot of other options most will not even think about or touch.

Thanks. I will see how it will go with my a8n and opty together.
