About eight of them. Now my mobo won't recognize my Opty anymore. Oh isn't life wonderful? I was able to bend them back enough to fit back into the socket, but it still will not be recognized. I have a friend in RI that offered me $25 plus a working 3500+ Venice (that maxes out at 2.6ghz) for my non-functioning Opty. I also have $200 from just selling my CS:S server, but that money was supposed to go towards new rotors for my car. My dad offered to buy me the rotors and have me pay him off. So I have a few options here: 1. Use the Venice, deal with half the cache and 400mhz slower, and use the $200 to buy the rotors, and have the $25 to do whatever with. 2. Sell the Venice, use whatever money I make from that on top of the $225 to buy a nice dual core or something of the like, deal with the warped rotors currently on my car. 3. Sell the Venice, use the money from that and the $25 to buy probably an Opty 144. Then still buy the rotors with the $200.
