My System Specs

Default

The Opteron 1xx family were one-way workstation chips for 939; very, very popular with overclockers in the past as well as recently as their trading prices have gone down. You'll be able to pull 2800MHz quite comfortably, no concerns aside from the factory heatsink's thermal pad. The most you'd need is a more conductive thermal compound to replace the original and you're set. Optys are really just higher-yield versions of the Athlons from the same wafer, with better heat and frequency tolerances. 3000Mhz is going to need a replacement heatsink. Maybe put the computer near the air-conditioner for an improvised boost in cooling?

Nice memory.

P.S.: If memory serves me right, the dual-core 1xx family were based on the Denmark core.
