The overclocking madman that is Solid-Necro has a new article up for you OC fanatics. Looks like there is a new OC performance king on the block that lets you hit 3GHz speeds for a budget friendly $200. Here is a snip from the article:
"Again we have one of those special low dollar "Gifts" this time from AMD, the OPTERON... just in time for Christmas! "But Opteron is a 940 pin CPU for servers only" you say? Well not any more, AMD has been kind enough to start making them for 939 pin boards a few months back with little notice by the mainstream desktop users. It all began last week my good friends SpikeShot and Captain Planet sent me a link on them in a IM convo. Spike was looking for a new CPU, and Capt. started looking around a bit and came across this. We all ordered them, just too see if it was true and not a one shot deal...all of us got the good stepping CABYE, each screaming away at 3GHZ now!" Read on over here.
