Which CPU for a Lan Party Venus?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
OK, got a lanparty venus,.....what's the most over clockable cpu I can put in the mofo (mobo, sorry).....X2, opteron, or fx??? Just the floating point cycles, please. Heard that the FX's are overpriced for their capabilities, but for this argument at least, I don't care about price, just the highest oc I can achieve. What's your vote (based on actual experience, please). BTW, where can one check for the world records achieved in overclocking skills (and the hardware used to achieve them)???

id rate the Opterons best at overclocking...

FX's generally can reach the same speeds as optys normally... but they're more expensive, and clocked higher at default speed.

i suggest an opteron 165 (dual core)

OK.....clear me up on this.....I see the FX's and X2's listed a having a faster fsb than the Opterons, yet many claim that the OP's oc better. If you start with a better claimed bus speed, wouldn't you be better able to oc it further???

All the S939 AMDs have 1000MHz front side busses.

All the 939s have the same FSB...

Uh..the best chip for you...would be either the Opteron 170, or the 4400X2...unless you wanna go FX, but that's a waste of money.

yea make sure you buy a 939 socket cpu...
if not then you better have a server mobo which will put you down $300 at least lol (not worth it)

I agree with Sideburns, Opty 170 or X2 4400+. 2.8-3Ghz should be doable if you've got some good RAM and cooling.
