CPU dilemma?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I have:

 

DFI Lanparty nFroce4 SLI-D s939 Motherboatd

Mushkin Redline XP4000 2x1GB

AMD Athlon 64 3200+

Enermax Liberty 500W

 

I'm looking for a cpu upgrade, thinking about one of the Opterons or FX60, i did my research about FX, but these opterons are still unknown to me. As i can see most of the users on this forum prefer Opteron over FX, so maybe someone can point me i right direction which opteron too look and read for.

 

Maybe someone can even suggest a good stepping for OC. I will be ordering from eBay and most of the sellers can provide stepping.

 

Thank you very much!

Look in the OCDB and you'll begin to see a trend on the CPU's of choice.. 165/170 CCBBE.

Also the current steppings being shipped seem to give good OC results as well..

I looked into OCDB and i noticed that 165 and 170 are best OCes as far as i can conclude, but I see that all of them are OCed by raising FSB. Are Opterons multipliers locked or not?

 

Thanks!

thats pretty much meaningless...you need the full stepping to be able to tell if it's a good clocker or not...but neither really matter if you dont intend to clock much or not at all...

 

you may see what you can find locally or a vendor in your area of the net...these CPU's can still be purchased new..
