I am looking to build a new PC and I have decided to go with a dual core and a good OC'ing mobo so I am turning to ya'll because you have always steered me in the right direction so if you have a dual OC'ed and or know a good CPU-MOBO cobo out there that would be awsome. Thanks again for the info.

if your building a whole new system id get either an fx60 or an opteron 165, they OC to the speed of all of the other dual core opterons(socket 939), just like the Athlon 64's, and the Asus A8N Sli Deluxe(for SLI), and the Foxconn Winfast NF4UK8AA MOBO

I would suspect with good RAM and the processor/mobo I suggested, along with GOOD watercooling, you could hit 5.0. Having a 65nm really will help.

Ice cold water cooling, Intel 955 EE, P5WD2-E, some serious ram???? ........ Oh and a good paying job so you can still afford to pay your bills and put gas in the car to get back to work.

If you are really interested into getting 5.0Ghz look into phase changing. That will cost you about $750 for the VapoChill (temps around -70C)

I am more or less a hobbiest that has a good bit to invest but I am not going to go crazy because I don't know what phase cooling is. I just got into water. I have also looked into AMD's. Being that they are posting faster Super PI scores. I want to hit 5ghz on a single chip or on a dual core. 5ghz per chip.

The VapoChill is a phasechanging kit. Phasechanging uses a liquid that evaporates at a very low temperature. When it evaporates (phasechange) it uses large amounts of energy without increases temperature. (the reason the temp doesnt go up, is the energy is used to break the bonds of the liquid so it can turn into gas). The vapor then goes into a condesor and turns back into a liquid to go back into the system. You must insulate the tubing so not to make condesation though. If you really want 5.0 or more, you are going to have to do phase chaning:

Since it is a kit, it is pretty easy and safe. I am going to be getting one myself eventually....

What one would you go with if you wanted to keep it in the case looking as stock as possible. Meaning I want to case to look from the outside like a regular comp.

The best you are going to do is that VapoChill with the advertised case. The case sits on top of the vapochill and has a whole in it for the parts. It sort of looks like one tall case.

yeh i would go for a vapochill like, they look amazin and you could clock it as high as you want, but what about the northbridge, will that not need good cooling too?

Or you can shave 600 bux off that, and get the P5WD2-Prem. Corsair 5400UL and a 920 Presler... I wouldn't want the EE due to the higher FSB (266 vs 200).. If you wanna spend more, get the 940.

Why exactly are you stuck on wanting an Intel to hit 5 ghz? Btw, that 6 ghz would last about 15 minutes tops. That's not something you can run for even a single gaming session, much less 24/7. I suggest you look into performance and forget processor speed because it means next to nothing. If you would like to see a head to head comparison, look at these results and ask yourself if you're still willing to spend $980 on that processor.

After testing both dual core processors I went with the Opteron 170 for my gaming machine. More and more games are coming out with the ability to access the second core.

For my Digital Multi-Media System I went with the Intel i630 and MCE so that I can stream movies throughout the house.

Keeps the kids out of my hair.
