Now someone buy it. Disable the extra cores, clock it to Zambezi clocks and benchmark it!

Now we are back in business.

Unfortunately the current motherboards in the market won't allow overclocking on this chip. We are not as blessed as the Intel users with the EVGA SR2 Classified. Also, it's a common trend for this Interlagos chip to be clocked lower than the desktop counterparts. So disabling the extra cores will not give you the same result. Besides, this processor has quad channel DDR3 support already from the previous generation Opteron.
Bzzzzzzzzzzzzt Blitz.
