ok so the normal x2 cores have a ht of 2000 usually and the opteron cores (939 or am2) have a ht of 1000 ok so when your ocing one of the normal x2 with the ht of 2000 why does it matter if your ht goes above a 1000 or is it the mobo that cant support higher then 1000, since it seems none of the mobos for these guys supports more then a 1000

i allways thought that it was the cpu that was limited as far as stability went but i guess its the mobo right, im not to sure any feedback much appreciated

In any case the mobo reports 1000 I think, and the CPUs that support 2000MHz, double that rate (I think just like DDR).

1000MHz (And maybe a little over) is a limit established by the motherboard. Some chipsets can handle a bit more (Radeon xPress 3200), but generally stay below 1000.
