    I know where a 165 will be on the 19th of this month...however I am still wondering if the 165/70 is not a bit of a false start compared to the X2, a similar price due to demand and if I'm right only the L2 cache is the only major difference. A few X2 owners are up past 2.6Gh here as the opterons cap out at about 2.4/5 apprantly, but I need to more reading for sure.

    As such I am wondering if the 144 and 146 opteron bonus is a bit of a white elepant for the 165's, but I'm holding my order just in case I read different, if the difference is neglible, then you can have mine from rlsupplies Just searching for definitive proof...

    Unless thats why you need one

    I just want a dual-core S939 chip for my workstation (not that I'm not enjoying the FX-60 being in there just now, but it'll have to come out at some point), and the Opteron 165 seems like my best choice since I don't mind overclocking a bit, and I don't have a fortune to spend. The 170 is out of my price range.

    They run a lower voltage than X2s for the same speed, and you get 1MiB L2 by default, so I'm hoping that with a bit of extra juice and some overclocking, I'll have something nice at the end of it.

    The alternative is just the X2 3800+ of course, but I'd like to give the 165 a go if I can nab one.

    Rys,

    I was so far down the going to get a 165, going to get a 165, then I read a bit more and found that opterons don't go much further on water than air, I was planning on water, mind I've been planning water for 3 years now...

    So barring volts as vbolts generate heat, the major difference is this cache then. Which a few people seem to think makes little real world difference, then there are some who do...reading too much is a problem I think.

    Try RL, they reckon they can get me one for the 19th, I'm not in a rush and it seemed as plausible as any other retailer given the shortage and in a few cases, not knowing about them or entertaining them over the x2. I've been viewing sigs on a few forums as searching for specific results on 165 and x2 numbers is a pain, but it seems a fairly consistent patteron of results between the two chips, give or take a % which could be mobo, ram or skill.

    If I find any sooner I'll link

    The above assumes a 231 GBP price tag for a 165 (1.8) versus a 3800x2 (2.0) at 230ish. Price fluxes change everything of course

    When I contacted Komplett before Christmas, they were quite candid that they didn't know if or when they would be getting any in stock. I ordered a 165 from DCSPLC who promised that they would have them in stock on the 21st Dec. Or course it didn't arrive, and the date became the 26th (which seemed unlikely) then 2nd Jan, then 7th, then the 9th. It now stands at the 17th. Oh yes, and they debited my credit card when I made the order! Naughty naughty!

    I believe they are still available from US online stores, but their shipping charges can be ridiculous and theres always the import duty/tax to watch for.

    Hey guys, i've just seen lord lucan...
    Unfortunately it is the americans who are getting all the dual cores. we seemed to get all the single cores in the uk ie the 144 and 146's but oh no we ain't happy with a 146 @ 3ghz, we want more!! we want 2 cores @ 3ghz. Ah well, i'm ordering a 170 from a nice fellow in the USA and hopefully i'll aviod the taxes as item will be marked as a gift
