Experience: 1 Years


- Core 2 Duo is better now
I got a 0534 SPMW stepping and pulled it up to 2.4 GHz stable. It's not the best in the bunch, but it's working pretty well. One year later it's still running fine.

Experience: 1 Weeks


fast,dual core,server grade longer warrenty
i bought this to do a minor upgrade from my amd 3500 works great very happy with it,since i like to multi task a lot this is the processor for me.Anyways i was lucky to get one before they were all sold out.

Stable, fast, 2mb cache, and overclocks like a dream!
None? No support for opterons with my Mobo(DFI) Boohoo(not)
So, got this. 2.6GHZ easy, hits 41 degrees max with a scythe Ninja. Stock 1.3 voltage as well. I can't be happier with my $250 FX-60!

Experience: 1 Days


Very fast
1MB L2 Cache *2
Compatible with Asus A8n-e motherboard
None yet
Replaced my x2 3800+ with this processor, noticed a difference immediately and even with stock cooling runs cool and stable at 2.3 GHZ. Going to push much farther once I get my liquid cooling up and going Excellent processor, worth every penny!

Fast, Stable, Powerfull
None so far.
I was a little worried that my new opteron would not play nicely with my new A8N32-SLi Deluxe MB, but I was wrong. The two work very well together. Two cores, each with 1024K of L2 cache makes a very big difference. Most of the other dual core cpu's (in the same price range and even those of higher price ranges) only have 512K of L2 cache. Let me tell you that this L2 cache is worth much MUCH more than the clock speed. I have not yet attempted to over clock this CPU (although I hear it can go quite far), but this is only because I am not in need of speed. I bought this CPU because it is a server grade cpu, it has two cores, lots of cache, and that it will be stable for years and years to come. I fully recommend to anyone looking for a long term cpu investment to look strongly at this cpu.

Experience: 1 Months


Awesome performance
Very stable
Great multitasking ability
Expensive, but worth every penny. Rips media, mulittasks, run amazing (and cool). Purchased for graphics workstation rig definitely the right choice.

Experience: 11 Days


overclockable with ease, very low voltage, very good stock cooling
A better value than the X2 conterpart, the 4400+ and it can even beat it with ease if you buy a new cpu fan such as the SI-120/fan. Currently it's running h2.65GHZ at 1,425V wich is damn good and we're waiting to get another case 120mm fan to push it h2,8GHZ.

must have !

Experience: 3 Weeks


Overclocks great!!!!
This CPU is amazing!!! I overclocked to 2.6 GHz prime stable with only stock voltage and my temps at 38 load with Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro. I'm sure I could go higher if I bump up the voltage a bit, but I'm happy with 2.6GHz.

Experience: 7 Months


- Easily overclocked to 2.6GHz (Speed of an FX-60 for less than half the price)
- Runs h 43°C on load h 2.6GHz
- Allows for a great amount of Multitasking
- Noticable performance LEAP out of the box
- The stock cooler is actually good! and is cooling this beast
- Unfortunately it will not go any higher than 2.6GHz without some form of extreme cooling
- For the price of the Opteron 165 and the clocking performance of the 165, it is a better buy. (THe 165 that is)
I made the jump from an AMD Athlon 3200+ S754 to the AMD Opteron Dual Core 170 and right out of the box my machine was flying! Opening more than one program did not effect my speeds at all, I paired this beast with an eVGA 7800GT and hit 8811 in 3DMark 05 which is unreal score for a single card.

If you are looking to upgrade to a rock solid machiine and don't want to have to upgrade for a VERY long time, get the Opteron 170. Because I am loving it!

Experience: 3 Months


-Great OCer
-Lightning fast!
-Dual Core
-Runs great with liquid cooled
-Great heatpipe cooler included
Great CPU, very dependable, awesome for games and everything else you need it for and OCes like a charm. Im runnin Operton 170 OCed 2.8ghz stable, DFI nf4 UT DR SLI, Seasonic 600W, Evga7900GTX Superclocked, 2gb OCZ DDR500 Platinum, Raptor 10k RPM 150gb, Liquid cooled 2 rads in a Thermaltake Armor 8000. 5 stars 8-)
