A64 or opteron - Page 2

post #11 of 13
go dual core for opteron, 165, or 170 if you can afford it, i lowered the voltage to 1.35 from stock and have it running stable thus far at 2400 mhz on air, stock air/hs, i don't know what is going to happen when i get a better fan........i would guess at least FX60 speeds, which i can do now, but the processor gets way too hot, 59 C at full load as opposed to 54 C at the moment

Opterons are made of pure-er silicon because they were designed for servers. If they both are the same price, have the same clock speed, same L2 then go for the Opteron - Itll overclock better and run cooler.
