Summary: This will be my second 185. Clearly I would not purchase a 2nd, for no reason. My first was deployed in a typical HP s939 mobo, with CL2 DDR. I was amazed that at 2.6Ghz, the 185 can outrun my 3Ghz Opty 256 x 2, by significant margin! My only complaint, 185s are still high priced, even now in 2013!
Summary: I bought this to breath new life into a workstation build I did for a customer back in 2004. He wanted to extend this build for another year 1/2. Tomcat K8E (S2865).This is the absolute best for a Socket 939 motherboard. Runs Hot, buy an aftermarket cooler. Excellent workstation CPU for DAW or Video Editing. Also great to eliminate bottlenecks. Very easy to overclock if your into that. I got it up to 3.0Ghz with ease just to see how easy it was.
Summary: Along with the FX-60, this is AMD's fastest processor you can buy for the socket 939 motherboards. It is dual core and runs at 2.6 GHz real clock speed. The 4800+ only runs at 2.4 GHz. The only way to go faster is to trade motherboards for socket AM2 or AM3. This processor is identical to the FX-60, which sells for more on eBay because people don't seem to know that the Opteron 185 is exactly the same.
First Impressions of Opteron 185 socket 939 Denmark

Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my 2.2 GHz Athlon 64 3500+. I also bought a used AMD copper heatpipe heatsink fan which I believe ships with these processors from the factory. At factory speed of 2.6 GHz, the Opteron 185 is idling just under 50C and under load reached over 60C before I stopped pushing it. That being unacceptable, I UNDER-clocked to 2.2 GHz and under-volted from 1.35 to 1.175, and now its running at a cool 35/47.
Summary: Dieser dritte Prozessorbericht handelt von einer weiteren CPU von AMD die wir täglich nutzen. Es geht um die "AMD Opteron 185" Server CPU's welche mit 2 x 2,6 Ghz getaktet und mittlerweile auch zu sehr vernünftigen Preisen zu bekommen sind. Warum den nun genau solche CPU's? Nun, diese speziell für den Serverbereich konzipierten Prozessoren sind selektiert und handverlesen.
