  1. If you can find one of the Opty socket 939s (146, 148), they do pretty well I hear...
  2. I’m running my AMD 3000+ (1800mhz) Venice @ 270 X 9 (2430mhz) on air cooling and a 1.5V VCORE with 30c resting and 44c max temps.
    HTT Bus is 270 X 4 (1080mhz) and Ram is 448mhz (166mhz ratio)
    Prim95 and memtest86 both stable 24hrs each.

    I would say I got my moneys worth!

    ABIT AN8 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD MB, AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice Model ADA3000, Hyper 48 cooler, CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR 400,

    The 148s are absolutely crazy for overclocking.
