146 CABGEs bad?


Is it worth $205 to get one of those? I hear 2.7GHz is max and that's with 1.7V..

If your talking about the Opteron Flavor...alot of results have shown potential for 3ghz+ on air with decently low volts.

Yeah I wouldn't be too worried about CABNE/CABYE/CABGE. I've seen Cabbages that could do just as well as the other two, and CABNEs that could only OC as well as the supposed cabbage-level overclock.

Now I suppose if you want to play it safe, you could buy the Opteron from somewhere you don't know the stepping is (Pretty much any retailer), and you most likely won't get Cabbage.
Or you could order three Opterons total from three different retailers, test them all, sell off other two.

I saw some very good cabbage batches too, seems its more luck of the chip not luck of the batch.
