AFAIK the "dual core optimizer" is not meant to be installed on Opteron based systems. It's just for Athlon X2 based systems.
If you check the AMD website for OPTERON drivers:
(The links under "AMD Opteron Processor") You won't find the "dual core optimizer".
PLEASE read the annotations for the drivers before you install everything you can find just because someone said so.
AMD Athlontm 64 X2 Dual Core Processor Utilities & Updates
AMD Dual-Core Optimizer - The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer can help improve some PC gaming video performance by compensating for those applications that bypass the Windows API for timing by directly using the RDTSC (Read Time Stamp Counter) instruction. Applications that rely on RDTSC do not benefit from the logic in the operating system to properly account for the affect of power management mechanisms on the rate at which a processor core's Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is incremented. The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer helps to correct the resulting video performance effects or other incorrect timing effects that these applications may experience on dual-core processor systems, by periodically adjusting the core time-stamp-counters, so that they are synchronized.
