not supposed to be in sync with the opterons; youre supposed to hit a steep wall at the end of the chips ability and Vcor increases have diminished returns, though i havent read anything about water or phase making a diffrence (though of course intuitivly it would) but im curious as to what extent. for $160 i can replace my newie and get 1GB L1 chache but to get to 3.0 i dunno??
go for it, you will most definetly get 2.7. Only problem is you are kinda limited due to the x9 multiplier. If you want more, that motherboard has to be stable at a FSB well over 300. I would try to find a 146 at the least, due to the multi.
