I am buying one of these off newegg later today. It is kind of funny because I do not know which one to get! I heard that the new KAB7E 3700+'s are good but also I heard the Opteron 148's on newegg are CABYE 0542, the best stepping. And also, when is the latest I can order with Next Day Fedex and still have it ship out today? Thanks dudes!

Thats a tough one. It seems like everyone with a newer san diego are getting great ocs. Not that the opties arent either but they seem a little hit or miss so the SD is almost a sure 3.0 stable which is why it gets my vote

On only 1.55V? Have you pushed any higher or done any suicide runs?

Thanks for your input! I wasnt aware of the CABYE 540's being better but I guess I was wrong

well I guess I am another sandy overclocker, I got mine to do 3.0Ghz too however I dont have stock HSF. I have the big typhoon so my temps are usually 31 idle and 36 max load. chipset is higher though probably from all the copper heatsinks/ no onboard fans.

Hmm, I am voting Opteron mainly because of the Newer core and because I need an adventure! Now if I can just get the dang guy who bought my Venice on ebay to pay me...
