I believe my CABYE has possibly the most horrible core contact so far, IHS removal is looking like an absolute necessity. I cranked up the voltage to 1.6 and just slightly upped the clock speed to 220mhz. 2.2ghz@1.6v with a TT Smartfan blasting at 5340rpm, which is roughly 85cfm, on a copper brick of a heatsink. It's idling at 64C, granted this is an AN8 I have it in right now, but with the latest bios's the temperatures are actually in line with other boards, some people even report them being too low. Sigh.

Edit: Testing it some more, it now has -1C air blowing on it, at stock settings under prime its 44-46C... Took 1.7v to even think about going into windows at 3ghz and the temperature was idling at mid 60's. Here's to hoping it fails prime at stock settings while not having -1C. If not, on to ebay it goes.

@ Spooky, well mine set to 1.55 does 1.584 most of the time so it seems to slightly overvolt is the 240 1T bug still aparent on this board? I dont really want to try because I dont want to have to open up my case again til i got my water to pull the cmos jumper :)

11-03-2005, 03:16 AM
Overvolting i dont mind so much hehe. Wasn't aware of a 1T 240 bug (I'm new to A64's, first build in fact) is that 240 on the RAM or HTT?

Mine cabye 0540FPBW from alternate has also arrived from alternate.de . Totals costs were 160€ with shipment costs. And they have stock. I don't know if they all are caybe's 0540 FPBW but you can try.

Does anyone have already results from this stepping with a dfi rdx 200? And which you should set in the bios.

Very bad attitude...

I wouldn't blame them too hard.

A business really can't go and sell the CPUs on that individual basis.

You see, if they have a bunch of nice and a bunch of not so nice CPUs, what are they going to do?

They cannot take a higher price for the nice CPUs. But nobody will buy the not-so-nice CPUs if the buyer knows it is probably a lemon.

It makes much more sense to let everybody in the hope that they randomly get a good one.

There might be some who sell the known-nice ones seperately but honestly I don't think many shops would bother, too much work for not enough profit, and then you have the guy buying the good ones first complain the CPU doesn't go as high as expected and then get it RMAed from overvolting burnout. Not a good business model.

I guess komplett.no get their OPTY's from komplett.nl since they are in stock there. Can't take 10 days to ship a CPU from NL to Norway !
Those who are in stock in NL won't be shipped to Norway because those are supposed to be sold in NL, which they will be. :stick: What's the benefit of shipping CPU's to Norway when they can easily be sold in NL? It is you who assumes that it is this way. You have no idea where yours will from, and neither do I.
Distribution goes generally in one way, unless the demand is very uneven which I doubt in this case. Opteron is very popular. I just don't wan't you to be too optimistic about this, lots of people both in US and Europe have waited much longer than expected for this CPU. The massive demand is global, AMD's production and distribution channels probably have a hard time keeping up.

I get your point but the answer is simple.
If you want a pretested CPU then buy it there.
If you rely on your luck or want to buy a specific code then buy it somewhere else.

Use Prime95. Extract the archive in two separate folders and run one instance from each folder. Double-check in the task-manager that every instance will get 50% total, that is 100% of each core.

Two observations about my 175. First, it is very sensitive to memory timings. Deviating from the optimized settings (704-2BT) cost me about an hour and a half tonight before I finally realized the problem and went back. Back on track now. Second, it does not appear to be handling high temperature well, frequently freezing up while priming when temps approach 55C. This may, however, be a result of poor scaling with voltage. Looks like the IHS is coming of tomorrow (purely in the name of science, of course). I'm going to prime 2900 overnight at atound 1.4 volts overnight. More news tomorrow.

I OC with rig like in my sig but i never pas 273 x 10 in 166 divider :( although i make the vcore to 1.6 V..i think there is no problem with the bh5 cause in divider 166 the memory run about 229 while HTT at 270...
so i think the problem is my Opteron Steping or PSU ..cause my PSU 3.3 rail is 3.24 when idle and 3.23 when load....
is My PSU limit My OC or i got bad Steping ?

this a sreenshot at 271x10 Vcore 1.6 ,if i run super Pi 1Mb at 273 x 10 the system always restart :(

well, i ordered 3 Opteron 144's at a local shop yesterday, and got them in this morning! I was suprised to find that all 3 were CABNE 0540 BPMW. They should OC very well.

I was dissapointed after i installed the first CPU in my system and fired up Super PI @ 2400 MHz @ 1.344v. I got an instant error after 5 seconds (...NOT CONVERGENT IN SQR05...)

i'm still using the 310P bios for my DFI NF4 SLI-DR. This CPU has to go much higher. What is holding me back?

tnx!

i know, but i set the memory on a 1/2 divider to ensure that memory is not a limiting factor. it has to be the CPU or HTT, but i set HTT multi to 3x already. strange.... would a BIOS updgrade (704-2BTA for instance) do any good?

Don't forget the memory controller is on-die.

I had to use a 120 divider on my DFI Ultra D (now using 623-3 BIOS) to get the CPU to max.

There's also a sweet spot for voltage on the 90nm process, at least there is on water anyway. 1.45 x 110% is for me. If I go higher, it actually hurts the system, rather than allowing a higher overclock.

Update on my 150 CABNE

I got the memory bug worked out with timings, and bios change, and I was able to get running dual channel finally. The HTT on the board is my limiting factor right now.

Here is a quick screen shot taken last night after a few hours of WoW and BF2. The 3dmark was taken at stock speeds (450/1200). It is running prime today while I am at work. I had to push the memory from 2.9v to 3.2v to hold those timings. What is the safe voltage limit on that ram? (OCZ Gold EL 2-2-2-5), I raised to voltage to 1.7 in an attempt to get it stable at 3.5, but it made no diffrence. My HTT just gets unstable, even with the CPU turned down to 1200mhz.

Hi!

I see that some stores is operating with two different names on theese opterons.

1.Opteron UP "San Diego"
2.Opteron "Venus"

Does this make sence? Can it really be San Diego cores in some of them? :confused:

And, do you know any stores which is shiping to Norway? I want a nice Opteron! :stick:

They which can be bought today, how do they clock? Any gold chips? (steppings?) I already have a Venice which is doing SuperPi 1M at 3150mhz cooled by single phase change. What can i expect with an Opteron?

Is anyone using PowerNow with their S939 Opterons?

I'm getting mine next week, finally moving away from Intel, and I thought PowerNow on an OC'ed Opteron would be a great thing..

I leave my PC running 24/7, and there's really no need for it to be running full voltage and full clock if it's just downloading some stuff off the web or checking emails.

I've read on DFI's site that you shouldn't use Cool'n'quiet if you're overclocking, which raised my concerns about PowerNow..

Can this be done?

I thought it only dropped the multiplier (voltage too?).
Can the levels be set?

I'll have a mCubed tbalancer in the box, and it would be really cool to drop all the fans to zero or very very low and have the CPU running at a low clock and low voltage until it's needed to do some actual work (like games or video of course!)

Indeed, these opterons are HOT. My NE 0540 APMW is 46ºC loaded under 1.6 bios set (smart guardian shows 1.56V) and a tripple ice pro with an asetek antarctica.

1.55*1.04 shows as 1.56Vcore

2806mhz 302*9 ram 133 divider

SP32M stable

havent tried more, but obviously not the best of CPUs. Getting a 146 from our belgian friend I think, and a mousepot as soon as the next batch is made. Considering my batch number is high 700s I think the results are ok.

What I find interesting, is that I cannot boot up into windows under a variety of settings, but when I clock through Clockgen it's easily stable :confused: 2806mhz is as stable as it can get, but 2826mhz with same settings and only slightly higher FSB results in BSODS... Interesting CPU...

Just got my Opt 146 retail box from Monarch today. Haven't really had much time to fully test it, but it's looking promising so far. It passed superpi 1M and 8M. I still have to prime it to see if it's stable. Keep in mind that I have had winchesters, venices and others that I have never been able to even boot at these speeds. So for me this is a major leap. :)

Best suicide shot 11x282 in avatar, same vcore. Went as high as 1.35x123%, couldn't get any higher. This chip runs hotter than my 3500, even with less voltage, but I haven't taken off the ihs, and I have removed it on the 3500.

And you are doing 2.9 GHz @ 1.44V on air! Go for the 3 GHz with that hot baby. That's and absolutely outstanding chip you've got there.

:woot:Some updates and general information about my new 175 (stepping, cooling in sig):

1) Primed at least 8 hours at settings in previous screen shots (2.9GHz, 1.44V) before leaving for work. Came home 11 hours later and found that Windows had crashed/rebooted. So I suppose it's prime stable for somwhere between 8 and 19 hours; I'm comfortable with anything in this range. It was a warm day in NYC and the heat was on in my apartment, so ambient temps didn't help matters. I suppose I should be more than pleased at the prospect of running 2.9GHz at 1.44V 24/7, but to be honest I was really hoping for a bit more. Avarice is the right word, isn't it? Or is hubris better?

2) Removing the IHS brought about a mere 5C drop in load temps, a far smaller improvement than with my CABNE (roughly 10C). This was a bit of a disappointment, and potentially important information for others with similar weeks/steppings. Removing the IHS may not be the no-brainer it is with single core Opterons, but this fact obviously needs to be confirmed by other users. Hell, you know you're going to do it anyways.

3) Temperature continues to seem to be the ultimate constraint in my overclock, which may be good news for non-air users. Sustained readings of around 54C and above causes Windows to lock up (and occasionally to crash) while priming, both with and without IHS. (As an aside, I probably should seriously consider reinstallation at this point given the number of hard resets I have had while testing over the last two days. It is conceivable that some of my recent instability is due to OS corruption.)

3) In effort to moderate temperature, I threw on a torturously loud Vantec Tornado on my XP-90. This helped bring temps down another few degrees, thereby allowing more overhead for voltage. It is also driving me insane.

4) All this in place, I was able to boot successfully to Windows at 300x10 at just under 1.5 volts. Fought several hours to achieve prime stability. Unfortunately I repeatedly failed prime blend test after 1-4 minutes during the 1st 1024 FFT run. Increasing voltage did not help. In retrospect, it was stupid of me to have been trying to fight large FFT failures with Vcore - large FFT's work memory, not CPU! Silly rabbit.

Back on track, I then tried a few other sticks of RAM with the same results. After lots of futile experimentation with timings, I finally tried lowering MAL/Read Peamble to 8/5.5 from 9/6. This immediately brought stability to the large FFT tests. Again, I was stupid - this should have been the first thing I tried knowing that Opterons are sensitive to these settings. Large FFT's are now a breeze, even at low voltage. Incidentally, my single core CABNE likes those values too, which got me thinking...

5) Ran prime blend again, passed 1024K test. Moments later, however, I failed the 1st 8K test, indicating that though RAM was now OK, CPU was not. Loosened ram further just to be safe, then incrementally raised volts in attempt to pass small FFT's. Pushed up as high as 1.65V. However, despite increased Vcore, once I went beyond around 1.58V, Windows would consistently freeze during prime as load temps surpassed roughly 53C. 273x11 was no better. This complete instability at any voltage convinced me that temperatures were the dominant variable (I choose not to believe that I have simply found the chip's wall). Also, though one core oftentimes failed before the other, it was inconsistent in doing so, especially as Vcore and timings changed. I take this as a possibly encouraging sign that that core is not just a total lemon since it wasn't always first to drop..

At this point, I gave up on 3GHz on air for the evening. Will give it another go as I learn more; might try that undervolt burn in crap.

I have backed down to 2.95GHz at 1.49V. As a quick test of Vcore, ran small FFT's for 45 minutes without event. Currently priming blend at 42C. Though it has only been like two and a half hours, it looks like it's gonna be fine (certainly so with a little bump if necessary). Might even be able to back her down below 1.49 volts. We'll see.

Final thoughts: this chip reminds me a lot of the early single core CABNE's. It takes off crazy fast out of the gates at near default voltage. Temperature increases outpace voltage increases. It subsequently fails to scale well with voltage as a consequence of this heat. Indeed, in my case, 7% past stock voltage netted a 32% overclock, whereas 20% past stock voltage isn't even stable at a 35% overclock. Methinks it be time to invest in better cooling.

Anybody wanna loan me a prommie? :)

Well i got my CABYE 0540FPBW a couple days ago and this is what ive gotten it to atm.

http://members.westnet.com.au/danastas/1488v.jpg

This is using a TT golf 325 heatsink.

This is what i am running atm and is what i game at/ surf net everything at and to me its stable.

StressCPU gives up after a few hundred thousand iterations when the temps get up above 61degrees. At 1.54v it is stable untill temps reach 63-64.

The annoying thing with this chip is i cant get it to clock much higher. Above 3100 it wont stresscpu or superpi 32m for longer then a minute no matter how many volts i put into it.

Ive decided to be happy with 3ghz (hell thats higher then my original aims anyway) and will leave it at that untill i get watercooling in a couple of weeks.

I have 3 chips to test: an E6 stepping Venice 3000 and 2 Opteron 144s. The first of the Opterons is a CABNE 0540 BPMW from overclockers (co.uk) - their current stock, still waiting for the other from elsewhere.

In the absence of the DFI Expert board, I'm getting a cheapo ASRock Dual mobo on Tuesday and 2Gb Ballistix to test with the stock cooler. If there's a lucky winner, it'll go under a Vapo LS.

My attitude is that if they only do 1.8 GHz stock, I have no reason to whine - they're doing what it says on the tin. I think ppl tend to forget that sometimes. If it only does 1.7 GHz, then it's an RMA.

Low Latency and 1:1 helps Super PI alot. I pulled out a 29sec SPI with my CABYE @ 10x290 3-4-4-8.

Back on track, I then tried a few other sticks of RAM with the same results. After lots of futile experimentation with timings, I finally tried lowering MAL/Read Peamble to 8/5.5 from 9/6. This immediately brought stability to the large FFT tests. Again, I was stupid - this should have been the first thing I tried knowing that Opterons are sensitive to these settings. Large FFT's are now a breeze, even at low voltage. Incidentally, my single core CABNE likes those values too, which got me thinking...



tighter timings brought stability?????

Found out that TRRD played major role in my opterons stability. I'm thinking that 2950mhz 1.67 BIOS set is possible. Memory is even more bounded to stability than any other cpu i had :p: Took me 2 hours to realise it was TRRD after I loosened timings to a level that would make TCCD cry. Also the Antec 430 TP I was using has a range of 3-3.2Vdimm while priming, so definitely nothing good. The OCZ is coming back to life it seems.

priming as we speak, this was a untweaked SP32M run with a low TRRD value :p:

http://xtremesystems.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=39530&stc=1

SP1M run, have not had time to run any further. 3100mhz at 1.67 bios set resultet in BSOD under SP1M. unoptimized run, however first ever with an AMD CPU over 3ghz and under 30s run.

CABNE 0540 APMW not looking as bad as on previous attempts - I know it has been said many times, however memory timings are 50% of the success.

More coming later, now its time to play with memory.

Eva - to get an effective burn in, you want higher volts but NOT higher temps! So it's good that your temps are under control - maintaining high volts + maintaining low temps = successful burn in. High temps increases resistance in circuitry!

Also are there any guys here with CABYE FPAW in the low batch numbers (0200 or thereabouts). I don't think a lot of these can hit 3Ghz as easily as the higher numbered FPAWs and FPMW/FPBW.

On another note... I think I found stability finally.

http://www.madmikess.com/stuff/opteron/290x10-primepass.jpg

I think that people should consider what they are seeing as far as temps go. I think the sensor on the die is off. With 1.62v I was hitting mid 60's temps and my waterblock wasn't even getting warm. Any air cooled cooler that I have ever used would have been blazing at that temp. I set a -10C offset in MBM as it closer reflects the temps I was getting with my 3700 San Diego chip with the same voltage.

50Mhz more for OCCT doesn't come easy.
At 1.4V it passed OCCT at 3050MHz, for 3100MHz it needed 1.52V.

Gonna try for 3150MHz now. :)

@Zeus a very nice OC there :) is that a CABNE chip?

Would a 146 CABYE 540 PAW be better over a 144 CABNE 0540, apart from CPU multi?

Also are there any guys here with CABYE FPAW in the low batch numbers (0200 or thereabouts). I don't think a lot of these can hit 3Ghz as easily as the higher numbered FPAWs and FPMW/FPBW.

Nice chip mate! :up:

I tried 3150MHz at 1.6V but couldn't get it to finish OCCT, our CPU's are pretty much the same as far as overclocking goes, mine's a CABNE 0530 APMW with heatspreader still on, what's yours?

Also, temperatures are about the same, can you do 3150MHz OCCT?

heya, randomly messing with ma memory which i had runnin at 207mhz on divider before... just tried to get it up a bit before i change mobo... see what loose timings, higher bandwith and freq VS tight timings at closer to 200 would do... as you can imagine, not much at all except give varied millisecond times in super pi and higher sandra bandwith

Guys quick question...

Which of these is faster for games and benching...

3Ghz (10*300) running 1:1 with TCCD @ 2.5-4-4-7...

or...

3Ghz running a divider (140mhz or whatever) for a total of around 230mhz HTT @ 2-2-2-5...

Is it the divider with tight timings?

Try them both out on spi and see. It's going to be close, can't run 2.5-4-3? That would be faster.

The divider doesn't matter, only timings.

My CABNE 0530APMW finally gets its chance to go under the Prommie after my 144 came up short because the DFI mobo won't give me more than 374HTT. Its off to a good start doing what my CABYE 0528GPMW couldn't do. 3.5ghz only 1M stable now but good enough to do some 3-D which makes it my champ. I'm thinking I'll keep this one. ;)

Think it will give just a little more to hit 3.6? Temps are becoming an issue, so while I might be able to do a suicide screenie at that speed, 1M stable seems to have ended up at 3.53ghz.

Keep going with it, you adding value to its sister. :DThe one you're Ebaying? I'm not helping much apparently, $163 would put me in the top spot to buy it less than 2 days from now. Hopefully you get a decent price. I might end up throwing mine in the For Sale section to help my 7800GTX 512mb fund I've started. :p:

How am I going to keep my cheap image??? When you think about how much a really good water cooling rig will cost you, then consider you can get into phase change for about $500-600 buying used, its easy to justify the expense. I told you I thought you were less than 2 months away from stepping up to phase, I might have been a little too conservative on my guess. ;) If you want to keep your cheap image think about a mousepot. :p:

Yes, every s939 board that works with a San Diego will work with an opty. Just make sure you get the latest BIOS.

And FYI, no board officially supports optys except the Tyan K8E.

A 148 would probably be a better chip and would allow more clock at less voltage so in theory you'd get more perfomance with less heat by undervolting it. I believe a good oc chip would probably make a good undervolting chip too.

A higher x does not mean a better chip. Read up a couple post and you will see Gun's 146 is better then his 148. Steppings and chance make good cpu's.

i believe gbomb's helpful response was meant to answer my question regarding which chip is better suited for my small form factor pc. nonetheless, thank you for your input. :)

That's what I was referring to, sff. My 144 will do 3000MHz at 1.4v, my 146 takes about 1.45v and the 148 that I sold took about 1.488v. This is all at the same MHz.

cabne 0540? if so have you got links?
most ive seen are topping out at 2.75ghz and very few going past it with over 1.6V

Between 2 chips of the same stpping a 148 should in general be better than a 146 but you are right it doesn't guarantee it. A 144 0528 cabne is much better than a 148 cabge but he asked a broad question and got a broad answer.

He actually was looking more to the lower rated chip since the higher one has a higher wattage but if you think about it you want more speed with less volts so you get a high performance to heat ratio. What he really needs is a 144 cabye 0540 to be very specific. In fact thats what we all could use I think.
