Well someone bought one off me recently for £97 on eBay. But from what i can remember they can't be overclocked that much. Like above, better off with a dual core Opteron.

Better to get a opteron 170 for 70 quid its got more cache and will oc far better.

What? :confused:

both have 1mb cache's per core.

4400 is clocked at 2200mhz, 170 is clocked at 2000mhz

Both can have bad and good clocking cores, the stepping can be a good indicator of how well the core will clock though, not always the case though.

OP: do a search in the oc'ing sub-forum for X2 overclocks, there is a recent large thread with various overclocks from 4400 cpu's.

Can reach 2.7ghz on the 4400x2

The latest batches of X2/Opteron Toledo CPUs going around have the same codes etc so it's no so much a gamble like it was before. Most get to 2.7GHz on stock volts and some go a bit higher.

There's not that much difference even with 2 x 512MB cache like with the 4200+ just make sure to get a Toledo core if you want a good chance of hitting 2.7GHz +. The Manchesters run a bit cooler but you might get unlucky with that and be limited to 2.5GHz or so.

latest opterons (E6) are very good clockers, i just bought one to test so ill let you know how i get on soon enough :D , as far as iv found you should get 2.8 on air no probs with opteron 165/170, iv seen a few 3000+ on air with latest steppings :eek:

ive got a much earlier week (tho same stepping overall iirc) as pretty much all the current 939 cpu's

it will do 3000mhz @1.55 on WC. later weeks are only getting better :)

keep in mind, these all tend to run VERY hot (if you get an LCB9E) so dont be to frightened if you see >60c when you start oc.
lapping helped a lot, decapping helped a lot more. still runs hot tho.

My 4200 is at 2.95 but need to work on it a bit to hit 3gigs as not stable at all but mb can only hit 1.4 volts :(.
But it do until later in the year when crysis is out.
