5 out of 5 eggsToot me horn!

Pros: Live on 939 socket! Runs everything fast. The only thing that challenges it is a 3DSmax render, which no desktop will ever do fast anyway. Love it and plan to keep my 939 for a while.

Cons: The price has gone up 100$ since I bought it, making it not the ideal upgrade. Even then, it was a hard choice for me since the AM2 chips were faster and cheaper at even that time. Not the best overclocker, but better than my old 3800+.

Other Thoughts: Got it up to 3ghz stable at 1.49v and Ive seen posts where people go to 1.55v. Might be more room but, hate to up the volts on this precious thing and it gets real toasty real fast. After 2.82ghz it scales predictably where +0.02 volts gives me about +26mhz. Staying at 2.91ghz at 1.41v to keep temps 36-53c. Heatsink is ordered and on its way!

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: what i expected the upgrade would be for my 939 rig, apevia x-navigator case keeps processor below 40c with stock heatsink and fan,

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU

Pros: Excellent CPU, I upgraded from an Opteron 170 and I can see the deference. Upgraded mainly to max out my system. All Opterons will give you lots of bang for your $$ so if you want to keep your 939 rig going hurray up and get one before they are all gone. I bought the 185 on 2/20, so it seems I got lucky cause they all outta stock now.

Cons: Supply is rapidly running out on these and other Opteron's in general, so if your shocked at prices now just wait, they'll climb even more, so I'd buy the highest clocked Opteron in stock now if I was you.

Other Thoughts: Newegg/FedEx can't be beat, Newegg is about the only place that even carries 939 Opteron's anymore. There is no differnce between the 185, X2 4800 and the FX 60. All run on 1000 mhz FSB as well. Mine is the Denmark core, CPU-Z and some mobo's have trouble telling the 185 apart from the X2 4800 and FX 60 cause they are the same spec wise.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 939

Pros: Great processor, I upgraded from the 180 2.4 to this. I haven’t needed to over clock it…yet. It runs cooler than the 180 using the stock cooler and paste (square). I took the square paste off the 180 and used artic silver and it’s been a little hot ever since. Not ragging on the artic, just my experience. Excellent way to keep the 939 system running and updated, great buy if there are any left, I might have gotten one of the last.

Cons: None so far except that they are in limited supply lately.

Other Thoughts: I think it says Toledo in CPUZ rather than Denmark. Doesn’t seem to affect anything. Some specs are: Epox 9NDA3I, Opteron 185 939. OCZ Platinum DDR 3200 2gb dual channel. AGP Radeon x1950.

5 out of 5 eggsOpteron 185

Pros: I've had this since Aug 07 and have been totally pleased with it. Using Abit AN8 SLI motherboard with 2 GB Corsair XMS RAM, a BFG 8800 GTS 640 graphics with Samsung 226BW monitor, OCZ 700 watt power supply, Hauppauge HVR 1600, and 4 Western Digital 500 KS SATAII hard drives. I use this mostly for video recording but I have ran Crysis and Call of Duty 4 on this machine with little to no problems. If you are wanting to stick with 939 socket a little longer and don't mind the price this is a great choice. I had run AMD 64 3000 and 4000 single core CPUs as well as AMD 64 dual core CPUs 3800 X2, 4200 X2, and 180 Opteron.

Cons: Price is a little steep. It is over 50 dollars more than I paid for it and prices for 5600 to 6400 AM2 CPUs are all under 200 dollars. RAM prices are down. 2 GB of DDR2 800Mhz can be had for around 100 dollars. But good feature rich motherboards are a little expensive or hard to find. And if a person is willing to make a CPU/motherboard/RAM upgrade it is hard to ignore the Intel options.

Other Thoughts: If you are considering this CPU but the price is holding you back, go for the Opteron 180. You will save alot and you won't take much of a performance hit. I have another machine similiar to this Opteron 185 machine yet using the Opteron 180 and 2 7900 GS cards in SLI and both run very strong.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: this is a awesome cpu, and in my opinion all the AMD Opteron 939 Dual Core Denmark Cpus are great!

They perform well, smooth multitasking. VERY VERY FAST
Great overclocker.

Cons: strangely the price have jumped high in the recent weeks. I am sure there is still demand, but I cant justify the prices these days (even if AMD is behind with new cpus)

Luckily I got it when it was substantially lower....but still beats the introductory price which was in the hundreds.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps a silly move, but I don't regret it.

I was so bored (and money to burn I guess) upgraded from my Opteron 170 (2.0Ghz Denmark) to this the 185 (2.6ghz). Nothing much different other than the 600Mhz ...but I definately see improvement, things are faster. I ran benchmarks, and things have improved a bit. I am so sick of waiting for AMD to offer a GREAT QUAD Core, sadly the Phenoms (sic what kinda of a stupid name is that anyway) are not it! I love AMD, not because of a name thing or Intel as some evil corporation...but for the fact that AMD offers better power usage and usually stays cooler.

Even though the upgrade cost me a fraction of the price as I sold the opty 170, I am not disappointed the least bit. Holding out for a killer quad from AMD- till then this Opty 185 is my mate.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product!

Pros: Amazing chip! I upgraded from my Athlon 3700+ to the Opteron 185, and I have to say that this was definatly the right choice. Quick, capable chip, can handle large multi-tasking without too many issues.

Cons: Runs a tad hot (If my readings are even close to ballpark, its about 45C idle...) But that should not dissuade anyone from buying this if they are considering the upgrade!

Other Thoughts: I decided that I wanted dual-core without the FX price mainly becuase I have a lot of quality hardware for my 939 board (Including a new Gigabyte board to replace my terrible Biostar one, right after I bought this chip). If I had know I was going to replace the board, I probable would have gone with AM2 since 939 is dead, but this rig should last me for the next 2 years.

5 out of 5 eggsSome more thoughts...

Pros: Same as I have said before. Dual cores all the way with AMD quality.

Cons: none yet. smooth sailing all the way with this one.

Other Thoughts: I had to come back with anothe rlittle review. To all the people who say if you have an AMD 64 4000+ or higher, then don't bother because there's no difference, I need to know what you're on. I replaced an Athlon 64 4000+ 2.4 Ghz with this and I'll tell you there's a huge improvement. I decided to try and see what I could throw at this processor just for fun and had nero burning a CD, winrar compressing a 2 Gig file, windows media player running with music, internet explorer open, yahoo music service open and downloading, and the CD burned flawless in 2 minutes flat and no massive delays. That right there would have brought my 4000+ to a grinding halt. So, yes, there IS a huge difference.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD as always for me.

Pros: For quite some time now I have debated on whether to get this or just go to the new AM2 sockets, but since I've got over $1000 worth of perfectly good hardware in my socket 939 system, I finally caved. First of all, this is my first dual core processor I've ever owned however I have researched them quite a bit and have realized that multi core is going to be the future of computing. Anyhow, socket 939, so it may not be quite up to these new AM2's. Installation was a snap, as any AMD processor I have installed. Nice heatsink with copper pipes, looks kinda cool in my tower. Installed in an EVGA NF4 S939 mainboard, powered up and instantly recognized the dual cores. No bios update needed for this mainboard anyways. Chip runs nice and smooth, nothing drastically different as of yet from my AMD Athlon 64 4000+ 2.4, however it was pretty cool being able to burn a cd on one core with nero and utilise the other core for browsing the internet and listening to music without a hiccup.

Cons: a little more than I would have to liked to pay but better than hundreds more for an AMD FX processor *gulp*

Other Thoughts: I'm still trying to put this processor through a workout without trying to overclock it, but I like it already, things handle much nicer already over my 4000+. Installed on system with EVGA NF4 S939 Mainboard, EVGA Geforce 8800GTS 320MB video card, 4 Gigs of G. Skill Memory, OCZ GameXstream 700W PSU, Windows XP SP2. It's good to go. Core temps on stock heatsink and no overclock are 36 C / 32 C.
