Opterons

Recommended Posts

ok well after reading (and seeing) how well teh opterons are overclocking, i think ill spring for one, seeing as how they are being discontinued as well. what would the best style to get for overclockign be? i would pair it with either my SLI-DR or an Expert.... and if i get one i might spring for some Watercooling, or god noes maybe a Phase sytem...

 

so whats the main difference between teh 146-180's?

 

i have seen crasy OC's out of teh 146's and some other crasys form the 170's... the main difference that i am noticing is that the stock clock rates are diffrent....

on a DFI NF4 board i really don't think there is much if any difference between the 146/170 and there higher multi counterparts because high htt isn't really a problem...

I think You would be good getting a 148, a bigger multi whcih means, in some cases, and easier oc without ram divider. It has a 10x multi right? and 146 has 9? correct me if i'm wrong. The monarch oem 148s are mostly CAB2E(i think thats right) but I ended up getting a CAYBE 0542. Good luck

it wont make a diff between the boards unless you MUST run settings like @ 1-2-2-5. anyways i got my board @ 3x ht so i should be able to run it @ 4x since i got 300x htt? or still wont be stable? eh
