Is the AMD Opteron 6172 a good CPU? For 12 cores and $30 price tag it's literally dirt cheap. The only thing that can be a problem are the overpriced motherboards.

Its a low clocked Phenom II with more cores. Would be pretty good if you wanted a super cheap dual or quad socket system for rendering video, but if you plan on using it as a desktop its not going to do much for you. Buy a cheap quad core Phenom II or an older generation APU.

If you want to use windows, then windows will ask for a license per cpu iirc, not up to date with their licensing model atm though. I don't think 2 or more cpus even work on the regular windows, so you need windows server 2012 or something.

I recently installed Windows 10 on a DELL precision 490 with two xeons and I can say that it works fine

mobos are very limited
ddr2, sata2, if you are lucky pcie 16x
needs special psu
but 48core system under $500 is nice
>>
>>52471436
win7 pro and better editions support 2 cpus

>>52471436
Windows only asks for a new license/rejects the old one of you change the motherboard.

Where can I a good and cheap motherboard for this? Something that can fit in a tower maybe.

4 CPUs is way too crazy. I wouldn't do that. Plus doesn't Windows only support 2?

Too slow for me.. I have the Intel i7 4790K
>>
>>52471641
I think I would pass on Opterons all together. Might as well go with older Xeons if I ever needed something similar.
>>
>>52471707
I7 4790k is a beast! One of my favorite CPU's for sure.
>>
>>52471751
my previous cpu was the intel i5 3570k which was great but I wanted to benefit from hyper-threading.

Hey. Is there any way I can message you outside of this? I need to ask something.

Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with the quad socket g34 boards would not recommend them to anyone. Not only do they get shit single thread performance, but they also perform like shit in large multi-threaded tasks because of how AMD set up the caching on them. The motherboards are finicky and unreliable, the processors are slow for most applications, and the box will be serving a dual purpose as space heater while under load.
