    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Because I am cheap and don't have a smart phone. Mine is a dumb phone as all I do with is talk on it. :toast:

    You are exactly right Stinger. I don't need all kinds of apps to do this and that. That's why I have 6 desktop pc's and a laptop. Don't need it on my phone running my phone bill up. :toast:

    Got everything installed a while ago, and decided to take advantage of this unlocked multi but hit a roadblock. No matter what I try the CPU multi is locked at 34x or 16x, the CPU doesnt go into its default boost clocks whatsoever.

    Tried setting multipliers myself in the UFEI and in Windows with no luck. Tried using the built in OC utility- nothing. In the UFEI it says the clocks speeds change, but in Windows they havent. Triple checked all my drivers and flashed the BIOS 3-4x. Thought it might just be a misreading, but the CPU benchmarks in WCG tell me otherwise.

    Any ideas?

    If it's Asus SB board disabling some of the energy saving features won't let you increase the multi to OC. Worth loading optimized defaults and see if you can access the higher multis after that.

    Went with the nuclear option- complete Windows reinstall :( Overclocking appears to be working fine now. Thanks for the suggestions. Will get BOINC back up and running once I get the system completely updated.

    Opty 3280's are popping up on NewEgg (65w, 8 core, socket AM3+)

    AMD Opteron 3280 HE 2.4GHz 8 x 1MB L2 Cache 8MB L3...

    I checked a couple of Gigabyte boards and they are supporting these in the latest BIOS revisions. Will start checking some of the other boards from ASUS, MSI, etc...

    I'm wondering how well these can crunch ;)

    The ceramic coated DK looks great. Did you buy from Newegg and does it come with hardware to mount push/pull fans?
