If you can find one of the Opty socket 939s (146, 148), they do pretty well I hear...

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!

The 148s are absolutely crazy for overclocking.
