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:


Water is pretty close to being more trouble than it's worth. It's good for 100-200 mhz over air in some cases but not always. It Looks nice with uv and all which is why so many case modders use it and it can be more silent sometimes.
At least with phase you can count on 400-500 mhz. That pays for itself pretty quick.

I'm trying to source god stepping 146's in the U.K. I'd like to take some back to South Africa for some friends, as S.A doesn't have anyone bringing them in.

Any guys here from the U.K know where I can find some. I've got a couple of places in mind, but I'm waiting for them to get stock, so they can give tell me the stepping.

When did you purchase them? I'm looking to buy 5 to take back to South Africa.

EDIT: I was on the phone to them too. I was told yesterday that they'd be receiving a load today, but I just spoke to a guy who said that he had been told otherwise. He couldn't even tell me when AMD planned to send them stock. :(

Thats sweet Pt1t. Weird how one chip of more or less the same design can perform so much differently than another.

The 0530 cabne's were great and the 0540's are so-so. The o536 cabye's are ok but the o540's rock. I guess just a lucky batch of wafers at whatever fab.

If you get a retail 146 from Monarch while they're still in stock right now, it's a very good chance of being a 0540. Tankguys is $30 cheaper, and I have one on the way from them right now, but you'll have to get in line.

EDIT: Oops! just checked Monarch, they're OOS. Try ZZF (http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=80101-R).

My 144 CAB2E 0540FPMW is currently at 2.9GHZ with 1.56v :) The biggest problem was tuning in the htt that high - oh and the cold bug, meaning that 2.9 was achieved wit the stock HSF (and the thermal pad!). Prime temperatures are 55C. I suppose I'd better slap a better cooler on it.

as for a64 tweaker, i havnt touched it yet, left all ram on default for now until i find the max stable clock out of both of them
are you using a ram divider? maybe thats your problem?

NWEng
11-08-2005, 02:20 PM
are you using a ram divider? maybe thats your problem?

Or not using one. Memory bandwidth shouldn't be a huge consideration with the on-chip memory controller. Using a divider to keep it around DDR400 with good timings but a high clockspeed (FSB) should produce good results. I'm using the 2/3 divider to keep my memory is around 204 with and FSB of 310, but my timings are 2-5-2-2 plus tweaks and it's running better than it ever has and I don't think I've topped it out yet.

I've always been under the impression that the coldbug doesn't kick in until substantially lower temps are achieved (-50c), by that I mean far beyond the kind of temps achievable with a single stage. This rings true with my set up too, even at -26c my HTT is unaffected, 320+ isn't a problem.

just got my opty 146 today. stepping as follows:

OSA146DAA5BN
CABYE 0540FPBW
1341649J50193

what do u guys think of the posibilities of this stepping? :stick:
nearly every 146 so far with that stepping have hit 3ghz with pritty low volts, mine is the same stepping and does 3ghz on 1.45V and some need upto 1.55V, just hope your board clocks well :D

i also my Asrock Dual sata2 version 1.04

what do u guys think of the posibilities of this stepping? :stick: Does the 1.04 version of the mobo wildly different from previous ones? If no, flash to the first OCworkbench beta bios and do the vcore mod. Once that's done you should be able to take it pretty high with the first limitation coming up being the cooling you have. On water you should be able to crack 3ghz. After cooling issues are resolved, YMMV based on what the board will allow. Good luck and post your initial results ASAP.

*PMW or *PAW are usually good AFAIK.The letter before the last "W" has relevance only when compared procs have the exact same date of mfg (ie. week and first letter after week Nº are the same). This is because the letter before the last letter is a daily wafer sequence marker.

Simply said _PMW's and _PAW's can be compared only if the procs are built during the same day.

ChkDsk : You couldn't reach 2.8ghz on a CABNE with water?! I find that highly unlikely...have you considered removing IHS and/or remounting?

Problem is, bought this one today for a friend of me. So its highly unlikely he would like to see me undress his CPU :P As you can see temps are ok. But tried almost all memory dividers, higher chipset voltage etc. But the CPU wanted more and more volts. Stability increased with more volts but I was aiming @ 2.8GHz @ +/- 1.5V so I could trade with my 3700SD.

Too bad...

BTW, tried >310MHz HTT with my 4000 (http://www.tjuh.nl/william/htt311.JPG) (and divider) and works perfectly. So, for now, I blame the Opteron :(

Overall this Opty is promissing...

CABNE 0528GPMW

Right from starting I could easily get 2860 at default voltage, my problem is the HEAT. It gets too hot running Prime, even at default voltage ~60C with a XP-120. That's may be because the 148s have higher temps I guess.

I dont want to invest in some more complicated cooling options so I'm kinda stucked here. I may replace my ThermalRight with a Big Typhoon but I dont believe it will help a lot.

question and sorry if it's slightly off topic here.

i'm testing my cabne 0530apmw chip but i'm having some stability issues.

3.0 ghz with the 180 mem divider allows me to pass 32M superpi and OCCT 30 minute test.

3.0 ghz with the 180 mem divider crashed windows about 3 hours into large fft prime95 test.

retested 3.0 ghz with 166 mem divider as to eliminate the possibility that it was the ram. ran prime95 large fft for 6 hours+ before i stopped it.

decided to game and my game hard locked 2 or 3 minutes into it.

so i decided to test small fft prime95. it generated an error within 4 seconds. reran it again and generated an error within 1 minute.

the question is...

what tests constitute a processor as being stable?

people swear by large fft prime95 while others say small fft prime95 while others say other tests...

what test methodology do you guys use in order to consider a cpu stable for 24/7 use?

back onto topic

the 0530 apmw chip is pretty amazing. i'm using small fft prime and it is running 2.9 ghz with just 1.44 volts but temps are running warm at 55C's on my watercooling.

Initial test. Can get to 3050. After that, it gets unstable. It is probably the RAM since it is at 1:1 and 1T. Have step it back and see what the CPU ceiling really is.

Hey dude,

those temps are very high for water cooling, wht is your WC setup? You may have to get the opty naked to bring those temps down, my CABNE0530APMW also had poor temps with IHS on, but after removal on my WC, I am arnd 32C idle and between 39-42C load.

Hey dude,

those temps are very high for water cooling, wht is your WC setup? You may have to get the opty naked to bring those temps down, my CABNE0530APMW also had poor temps with IHS on, but after removal on my WC, I am arnd 32C idle and between 39-42C load.

yes, i understand the temp is high!

:(

i have a 3700+ SD running 2.85 ghz naked with 1.6 volts and it runs a cool 44C's at 100% load.

So this chip which runs a whole 0.15 volts lower and 50 mhz faster runs 55-57C's 100% load!!!

i'm gonna keep the IHS on for now. I'm pretty sure this is a 3 ghz chip. I have one more 146 on the way from tankguys next week. We'll see how the two compare. I'll keep one and sell the other. Whichever I keep, I'll take the IHS off to lower temps for sure.

Excellent 146 CAB2E 0540. A lot better than the 144 CAB2E 0540 has been showing. Wonder if that's because the 146 has a higher multi (allowing lower HTT) or if they're being binned?

Thanks Mats. I'm trying to understand what's being said. :) You wouldn't know whether they could ship to the U.K do you?

Thanks.

EDIT: Which did you order, the OSA146BNBO (http://www.sbs.o.se/info.asp?artnr=OSA146BNBOX) or the OSA146BNBOXCABNE (http://www.sbs.o.se/info.asp?artnr=OSA146BNBOXCABNE)?

Heh, Swedish can be difficult...
I couldn't find any info about shipping to other countries or not.
You can always call them on 0046 303 15790.

I ordered OSA146BNBOXCABNE and paid 25 % more so I could choose code. I wanted CABNE 0530 or CABYE 0540. Then they called me up one week later and asked if I wanted CABYE 0540 FPMW and I said yesss! :toast:
Next shipping is nov 16.


The letter before the last "W" has relevance only when compared procs have the exact same date of mfg (ie. week and first letter after week Nº are the same). This is because the letter before the last letter is a daily wafer sequence marker.

Simply said _PMW's and _PAW's can be compared only if the procs are built during the same day.

True, but M & A are very common among good OC:ers AFAIK.

Can someone give me the adress to that German Opteron database? Can't find it... :stick:

There is plenty of work still to do and the BIOS, while stable, is showing up some errors - like missing FSB 388. I also need to get my good TCCD's back on line..

Current BIOS
704-2BTA / Yellow Slots / 1.5-2-5-2-7-14

And yes the Pi times are not matched for the speeds due to not maxing out the mem - they are on a big divider - tweaking will come later. :)

OK so far it has done 2800MHz on stock volts reported at 1.360v and with stock heatsink. Never went over 42C full load.

Right now at 3000MHz on 1.504v 48C load.

I can do 3000 too - its not prime stable though.

Running the Zalman 9500 here, 3000 will super PI 8m, will not complete OCCT or prime so it's not really stable. However 2.930 seems stable at 1.50v.

Oh yeah...I am a bit new to these forums, but I definately have been reading em for the past couple of weeks and decided to jump in to the opteron madness.

I also have a 144 CAB2E i ordered from dreamhardware and two more 146s on their way. I was just gonna wait for tomorrow when I will have em all to begin my weekend of fun by chosing the best stepping but I may just start now with the CABYE. If it goes well I probably won't even touch the others and just sell em cherry.

Anyways...let you know my results. Ill fill you in on my board later...not a DFI, just hoping for at least 2.9 and anything more is just icing on the cake.

Might have gotten lucky for once....

First CPU ordered from Monarch OEM 146 turned out to be a CABGE but arrived with bent pins. They told me I could try bending them back but if I broke one it was my new key chain.

I took the RMA and since they were back ordered I got store credit and took a 148 OEM since the prices have dropped.

Was wondering the same. Also, any idea why Monarch's price on the 146 shot up 32% last night, or why Tankguys is still selling for $165? Any difference in batches?

Mine is Newegg 05450FPAW.

I would imagine prices are jumping due to sudden demand.

Finally got my 146 CABYE 0540FPBW, 160 euro shipped. I think from their last batches, since i did not look on its number yet. :)
Just put it in the socket and got some easy initial results. Last games seems so far stable! :D
Tested on air with a crappy TT Polo. Ambient temp 25C, max CPU load 44C.
My TCC5's seems to enjoy lower timings now.

Next i will push it higher. Expecting 3,1Ghz ~1.55v stable? I'll put that beast to crunch for the team soon ;)

anyone think an overclock could be limited because all my memory timings (except for the actual 2.5-3-3-6) are set to auto?

Should be..try to find the optimal timings for your memory...or just use a lower memory divider to get the memory to a stable FSB...

From my experience, overclocking the Opteron means that you have to tweak your memory more than with other chips. Check this forum for basic timings and try them.

The CABYE 0540 FPAW seems to be doing very well for me and others.
I don't think either would be bad. Also really depends on the individual chip.

I just received my 146 : Good news for us scandinavians, it's a CABYE 0540 FPBW. Priming at 2600 Mhz, with default vcore as we speak; I'll make more serious tests after a good night sleep.

CABNE 0540BPMW is just like cab2e & cabge, hard work getting to 2.9ghz, most ive seen need 1.6V for 2.8ghz
i wouldnt say the early cabne 0528 & 0530 is the best either anymore, the 146 cabye 0540 is giving them a good run, nearly all of them hitting 3ghz easily (mine is prime stable doing 2.9ghz on stock volts! shocking)

Ah, but a 146 has a 200MHz head start... so really a 146 @ 3 G is the same gain as a 144 @ 2.8 G.

I still have my 144 CABNE 0540BPMW sitting here in its box, untested. I bought an ASRock Dual mobo in the absence of a DFI Expert, but tests with a Venice 3000 have demonstrated that the max HTT is 274 (for some reason, ASRock have limited it) and no BIOS revision, even the OCW betas, changes that fact. So max clock is 2466 MHz come what may and that ain't good enough. Thus my 144 will sit in its box until the Expert becomes available. :(

even if it was that simple, a 144 would have to do 2.7ghz stable on stock volts & i havnt seen any 144 do 2.6ghz stable on stock volts, even 2.5ghz is a struggle (not including the cabne 0528 & 0530)

Not even under phase-change cooling? My Vapo LS is waiting in the wings... this 144 better not be cold bugged.

I drove to Alternate (in Ridderkerk, Holland of course, you probably know it) and just bought one, they had only 6 left, I got this stepping and I feel lucky ;)

Problem is... earlier you could order by phone and they'd give you a AUSxxxxxx number and then you could walk in and pick it up, you'd be out in 10 minutes, but they don't do that anymore.
Some people have to wait like 45 minutes in the shop before it's their turn, so some of them used their mobile phones to order stuff so they'd be ready in 10 minutes, so Alternate decided they don't hold them apart anymore :(
Customers in the shop go first now, they say :(

i had 3 of them, 2 RMA'd and 1 currently testing. It's SuperPI 32M stable @ 2430 @ 1.392v. Will try to push harder, but i don't think this thing will go much higher. I already tried to do a SPI run @ > 2500 MHz, but i need a lot more voltage.

Go for a CABYE 0540, they should still be available and chances are fairly high that you will hit 3GHz with good cooling.
