Hello,
I'm interested in upgrading my Workstation config with a AMD Opteron 185 2.6GHz X2 Dual Core E6 socket 939
I'm actually using a AMD3500+ monocore processor.

I couldn't find ont the AMD Web Site specifications about Opteron 185 socket 939 processor.
I only could find new processor (second or third generation) with socket AM2

According to Asus specifications =
http://support.asus.com/cpusup...guage=en-us&model=A8V
my A8V motherboard support this processor.

But :
- I'm worryed about my DDR-SDRAM PC3200 memory chipsets.
I sometimes read about registered memory ... ? Any clues ?
- Do I need to change the Fan processor or my actual 3500+ AMD processor fan can work ?

Thank you for your lights.
Sorry for my poor english.
Regards.
Jean-Claude

Bonjour JC

The board does support the processor as you have shown.

Why are you worried about the memory?

You indeed may need to change the processor heatsink. Which one do you have running on your computer right now?


Salut

First Thanks for the answer MD Willington

OK good point for my RAM-DDR chipset
And I need to change the heatsink and may be the fan upside it

Is it true there's no cool n'quiet solution on Opteron processor ?

Retail s939 Opterons come with heatsink and fan included.

For Opterons the CnQ is called Powernow. It usually works just the same.
Enable CnQ in BIOS and set the Control Panel-> power options->power schemes to Minimal power Management.

Use the latest CPU driver from AMD's site.

Do they even make the 185 anymore? Does anyone know? I also had been looking to upgrade, from a 3200+, but it seems they've stopped production on that line.
