When I go here:

http://www.amdcompare.com/us-en/opteron/details.aspx?opn=OSA170CDBOX

The core voltage is listed as:

Core Voltage 1.3 V/1.35 V

What's the 1.3 and the 1.35? Why are two listed? I'd think that a cpu would have only one stock voltage?

Thanks!

Not sure, maybe the first one is for the power management, and the 2nd one is under load. Or maybe a safe operating range for it?

1.3 Spec voltage for the CPU with 1.35 max voltage as acceptable (for warranty purposes). This is more for motherboard support than about the CPU itself.
