Working flawlessly on Asus KCMA-D8
This review is from: AMD Opteron 4234 Valencia 3.1GHz Socket C32 95W Server Processor OS4234WLU6KGUWOF
Pros: Got two of these for an Asus KCMA-D8. I opted for the 6-core because the speed ratings are slightly higher than the 8-cores. I built this computer for work as a software development workstation, and 12 cores are plenty for that application.
Cons: I'm running with a very low end graphics card - AMD 5450 fanless. For software development, I don't need 3D. Again, I wanted quiet. However, I compared CineBench numbers with a fellow running 4184 and his numbers were higher than mine. I've read that these first generation Bulldozers have some issues in cache speed. I bought these intending to upgrade later in the year when the Piledriver cores come out. That's why I didn't spend the money to get the faster 4238.
Other Thoughts: I noticed that Newegg put both the 4234 and 4238 into deactivated status. Don't know what that is about. So, if you intend to eventually run two of these on a dual CPU motherboard, you should buy both CPUs at the same time.
