    I'd prefer the opty too.
    Mainlly because its cheaper as I belive that performance (o/c) should be about the same.

    There is a chance that the SD is an E6 core and might not overclock as good.

    The Opty should be an E4 core and will probably overclock better.
    Overclocking system:
    ASUS Rampage Formula (BIOS 0403)
    Xeon x3350 SLAX2 @ 8x475=3.8Ghz 1.29Vcore
    Dual Radiator (modded) Koolance EXOS with Zalman WB5 CPU block
    2 x 2GB OCZ Platinum PC8000 @ 950Mhz 5-5-5-18 1.8v
    Enermax NoiseTaker 600W
    ASUS GeForce 8800GTX @ 645/1645/1000
