s939 3GHz... what's the least expensive way...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
so I might be buying a new CPU soon... Idunno. Anyway I told myself I wasn't going to get a new one until I could get to 3GHz. What socket 939 chips do you think I could OC to 3, on air cooling? I'll probably be using the same setup listed in my profile here, just with a new CPU. Thanks for your help OC.net!

Yeah, I would say the 3700 too - on a good stepping at least. If you get a good stepping of the 3200 you might be able to hit 3Ghz with a BT.

I've never seen 3ghz on air from the 3200+

3700+ or opteron 148 (steppings CABYE, CABNE, CAB2E (some of them))

i was able to pull 3.0 on my cab2e with 1.6v with my BT. lowered it to 2.9 because i didnt like putting too much volts to it.

I'd say get the 3700+ they've been good lately and can overclock to 3.0 with sometimes slightly less voltage than an opty 148. The new opty stepping shaven't been that great I believe. Your best bet would probably be going with a 3700+ Sandy E4

well there isnt much of a diff between 2.8/2.9 and 3.0 - as long as the rest of the system is overclocked well then your running neck and neck. (typically to get 3.0Ghz you have to lower your Mem and reduce other things, which does nothing but defeat the whole reason in overclocking cause you threw everything else in a bottle neck to get the proc to run at 3.0)

Ive done 3Ghz on air but really unstable, probably the ram.42 Degrees CELCIUS idle 54 Degrees while running 3d mark 05.
3700+ is really good.The 3200+ venice with e6 stepping is the best overclocker but not the fastest.I've seen opterons in 939 or am i mistaken?.They overclock really well.
