This chip is a monster! 12/14/2006
This review is from: AMD Opteron 170 Denmark Dual-Core 2.0GHz Socket 939 110W Processor OSA170CDBOX
I ordered on Dec. 5 and received CCBBE 0615 DPMW from the NJ warehouse on 12/8. Began overclocking immediately. I tested with Orthos for at least 5 hours at 2400, 2500, 2600, 2700, 2800. It runs stable at those speeds on stock voltage (1.35v). I am going for 3GHz though. I had to bump voltage up at 2900 to 1.425v and it is stable for 5 hours so far as I write this.
Temperatures are higher than I'm used to compared to my Venice 3000+ I'm using DFI Ultra-D with Thermalright XP-90 heatsink and a Panaflo 92mm fan. Temps are in high 30C's idle and around low 50C's during the stress test. If only one core is utilized during gaming, then it's around mid 40C's at load.
I was originally planning to get the Opteron 165 but I need to 10X multiplier. This chip was a buck eighty-five when I got it. Some users reported getting the EPMW stepping. If you are going for a high overclock or are somewhat limited by your RAM get this; otherwise get the 165 and save a few USD.
