    Ive decided to get an opteron 146 and was wondering if I can use it in my current motherboard (ASUS A8N-E) or if i will need to purchase a new one, and if so, which do you recommend.

    ps. What air cooler would you recommend for this cpu?

    However I'm not too sure how good the A8N-E is for ocing, something you should consider, but If you already have it you might as well try the opty in there and see how far it will go

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro if you're on a tight budget, Thermaltake Big Typhoon/Sythe Ninja if you've got some cash to spend :)
