    Hi all,

    I have a MSI Neo 2, Opty 146 and 1gb Geil One or ram.
    The memory is rated at DDR400 1.5-2-2-5.

    At the moment the memory is @ 133mhz 2.5-3-3-7 running at 2.8v

    Opt @ 2.7ghz, 300fsb, 3xHT, 1.45v
    thats the max i can get out of the Opteron, but i was hoping for abit more, at least 2.8ghz.

    Is this the best set up for me? or should i change/lower anything?
    I was thinking of changing to a DFI board, but not sure.

    any help would be great.

    What are your temps like? If you have a good after-market cooler on that CPU you could go to 1.55v on the vcore. 1.6v if you are brave.
