Opteron 165 is very tempting, why not Retail Box instead OEM all the times

Yup. If you think about it. People are able to get 2.7ghz on 165 opterons. Thats FX60 for $270 for this deal. Thats amazing... Compared to a $1000 FX60

Here I was sitting happily with my 3700+ Sandy thinking "I'm gonna wait for AM2," when you come around and post these awesome deals!

Looks like I have a 165 coming to me next week! :D

My sentiments EXACTLY. Well, except my current processor WAS a 3200+ ;)

I shouldn't be worried that this is OEM, correct? I looked for the differences via google but I didn't find a concrete answer.

Im not sure what you mean? OEMs just dont have a HEATSINK or warranty. Well, they have 60day warranty from monarch, which is plenty. Chances are if its gonna be bad, it will fail within that 60 day period.

With retail, if you overclock anyways "technically" the warranty is void anyhow.

OEM is just the bare cpu

Retail=paperwork, warrenty, box
the dual optys come with a nice HSF that is up to par with a XP

No heatsink included? I could just buy this and slap a Scythe Ninja on it with no problem right?

I've wanted this for a while and am about to jump on this. It's too good!

yes, you can use any HSF that is compatible with S939. I think that the Scythe Ninja is. I have a Zalman 7700AlCu and will be using that.

The Opteron 180 is still quite a bit more expensive than it's counterpart, the X2 4800 :[

Dear Monarch,

Why do you insist on making me poor? I work so very hard for my money, and you take it so effortlessly. Ahhh, I can't stay mad at you :)

Love, SeniorPaul

i see a lot of people here got the Opteron 165. I was thinking of getting the 175. What's the best bang for your buck?

Too hard to resist. Selling the 148 should be fun...

Now to find a decent cooler. And did anyone else try to order stickers and notice it bumps your shipping up like 9 bucks?

Hmmm. Can a 175 o/c on air pretty easily to FX-60 speeds? If so, what mobo would be suggested?

I've been looking at upgrading, and am close to pulling the trigger on an X2 4400 Toledo for not much less than the 175 after coupon. If I can get the 175 to near FX60 with a nice HSF then that 's a much better deal.

And can anybody refresh my memory on what the difference(s) would be between Opteron and X2 at the same stock clock speed? For example, 175 vs. X2 4400, both at 2.2Ghz stock -- does the Opteron have any architectural improvements or benefit over the 4400? Is the memory controller support dual-channel on the 175? Still DDR1, right?

I used to stay on top of this stuff, but work and grandkids are taking up a lot of time lately. :)

Opti has 1mb L2 cache per core. X2 has 512kb.
