I got and Opteron 146 a month ago before they all disappeared but was running it on an EVGA SLI motherboard. My highest overclock was 2.4 with the EVGA board (piece of crap - stay away). I knew I could get more out of it and finally purchased an Abit KN8 Ultra. Best investment ever? You be the judge...

Yes, the newer Opterons come in 939. This is what mine is.

Yup, and they don't need ECC memory either, but they overclock like hell.

That is an awesome OC man, I am jealous :D

Yeah, those new Opterons ROCK. I'm foaming for a DC one, but they've sadly been discontinued.

Guess I'll just have to "settle" for a 3800 as a late Christmas present to myself.
