Default Which AMD Socket 939 Opteron CPU?

Either the Opteron 165 or the 180.

I'm going to get one of them this weekend.

I know the 165 OC's, near enough, 1Ghz to about 2.7Ghz! The 180's can do 2.9Ghz.

I will be OC'ing.

Which one would you go for?

The 180, higher multipliers help with boards that can't do high FSB.

Thanks.

I've decided to go with the 165.

From what i've seen it clocks better than the 180.
