Hi guys, i recently decided i need a cheap yet expandable NAS solution, obviously by going none embeded im raising power consumption, so im trying to keep it quite low but still get reliable performance.

I noticed that a socket 754 3000+ 64bit sempton is £56 in the uk and 754 mobos are cheap.

However i have found a deal involving an Opteron144UP on a 939 mobo that works out very good.

I would like to know, what are the advantages of this opteron over the semptron 64bit 3000+ ? also what does the UP stand for.

I am very curious because the semptron indicates it might be just as fast and it runs about 5watts lower.

Thanks.

Opteron is AMD's top line, then the Athlons and then the Semprons

see specs:
Opteron 144 Specs' ">http://www.amdcompare.com/us%2...s.aspx?opn=OSA144BNBOX
Sempron 64 bit Specs' ">http://www.amdcompare.com/us-e...aspx?opn=SDA3000AIO2BX

If that is a 939 pin Opteron 144... then I recommend that. I don't know what the UP stands for /tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

The 754 pin motherboards are not very expandable at all and you will get more life out of a 939 pin solution.

The Opteron is the best chip that amd makes so it will be the most reliable and stable as well.

UP just refers to the s939 model

"UP" = uni-processor... meaning that for a server solution it is a single processor solution, as opposed to a 2xx would be a 2P or dual processor solution.
