I thinking about getting the Opty 175 and OC'ing it. Just wondering what you guys think about this proc?

Good, but a good stepping Opty 165 overclocks just as well, and sometimes even better. Good 165s are known to hit 3.0GHz.

I've heard that as well, the only thing that concerns me is that this will be my first time overclocking and I don't want to mess anything up. So I thought it might be better to start out with a faster speed and try to bump it up a few notches instead of really pushing it.

In that case, I'd take a look at the 170 <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Basically it's the same chip, but with a higher cpu multiplier... the 170 has a nice 10x multiplier. Which could give you 300 x 10 = 3.0Ghz.

Either the 165 or 170 would be a better choice. Either are pretty easy as long as you can get a good divider going.

Alright, thanks for the info. The 170 looks quite nice.
