Opteron 146 CAB2E 0540 FPMW :) on MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum :woot:
looks alot like my 146 CAB2E 0540FPMW @3102mhz at 1.536v 32M :D

Hi there, short term lurker and my first post - I got a CAB2E 0540 FPMW the other day, and I am extremely dissapointed :(

I am having to run it at 2475mhz at 1.55 volts currently - anything higher clock wise and it fails all of my stress tests, within 6 seconds. Even with 1.6volts and slightly higher - 2700mhz on 1.65v is a no go. Super pi fails doing the 128k calculation never mind the 1m calculation.

Using an NF3 Ultra (Epox 9NDA3J) even back flashed to what is considered the best o/c BIOS of the April 2005 version.

I have an AKASA 460W Paxpower CPU,
XP-120 with L1A Panaflo fan
x800 xt pe

I think the CPU is just a really poor clocker, I have tried with the timings and ram dividers on the lowest they can go - but no luck. So far I have run about 10 hours of SP2004 and I think the clock speed I am at is stable now. Also the HTT is set at 3X (275HTT)

Temps under load are 47-49C :(

Yeah was expecting a minimum of 2600mhz, and was hoping for 2800mhz ideally, not to worry - I'll have to save up now for a new motherboard and power supply

I was reading through the Opteron thread @ OCUK forums and their CAB2E 144s weren't doing very well either.

A lot of your guys' posts don't mention what kind of cooling you have. It's pretty confusing to figure out by looking at past posts.

Also, what speeds are you guys getting using just stock cooling?

low batch numbers dont mean good clockers.
someone on another forum has 4 146 cabye's and said his 0500 is the best clocker.
ive got 2 cabye 0540fpbw, batch 0169 does 2.85ghz 1.5V & 3ghz 1.6V but the 0564 does 2.9ghz on stock volts & 3ghz 1.45V (all prime stable)
from what ive seen on various forums, the fpbw seems to need less volts than fpmw (both easily hitting 3ghz tho) & ive seen a few fpaw struggling for 3ghz

i have a 144 and with 166 divider my TCCD can't even cut 245MHz stable. 1:1 it does 280MHz at good timings but then the CPU has a low clock :rolleyes:

Sounds like the memory controller just cannot handle it. That happens - just because it can do 280 at a lower clock speed doesn't mean it can do 280 1:1.

i mentioned in my post, the newest version of cpuid is reporting my vcore wrong. my vcore is around 1.67. but i did run a 146 cabge at that vcore(around 1.78v) for a week or so with no probs. i am using xp90 with a panaflo. ambient is around 22C, idle is 33C, load is 53C.
so 3ghz is do-able with a 144 cab2e, on air.

Check the interval when erading the graph from OCCT, it can be only 0.1V drop on load, which IMO is very good already.

Batch 0166

Still working on getting this one tuned in but so far completed OCCT @ 2800 (10 x 280 1:1) with 1.32v.

Question I have is that the CPU seems to be running hot at 47C max during test. According to Central Brain Identifier Max T Case is 63C with a Thermal Offset of 12C. This compares to my old 3700 Sandy at 59C T Case and a 3C Offset.

Would this explain the high temps and if so how should I account for the 12C offset?

Sounds like the memory controller just cannot handle it. That happens - just because it can do 280 at a lower clock speed doesn't mean it can do 280 1:1.

Are new chips really falling over at this low MHz 1:1? I know there's something in my system that's not letting me run 166 divider on my CAB2E (that would mean 2.5-3-3 ~250 on TCCD, which is fine) but is fine with 133 (2-2-2 ~200) - could it really be the chip?

I ran Prime 10 hours last night at 296*10 (same vcore)

RAM timings are pretty relaxed (running 166 divider); I'll try to run 200 or 180 when the CPU has reached its limits.

Those opterons have an unusual behavior: Usually when I need to bump the Vcore I know the chip limit is 200-300 mhz higher. Here I had to raise from default Vcore at 2700 (And thought it would be difficult to reach 3000 with "raisonable" voltages), but it's still going! Very impressive chips indeed.

lower batch number does not guaranteed better overclock, few weeks ago I bought three 148 cabne 0528 but the one with highest batch clocked higher, required less vcore, and with MaxTcase of 67'C instead of 63'C like the rest of the lower batch.

do you believe in MaxTcase? There are Opteron's with MaxTcase 55 that do 3000+ on air / water... My two 146 CABYE 0540 FPMW with batch 0001 and 0230 will come in monday or tuesday. I'll let you know!

Hmm i got 2x 146 same stepping fpbw one has MaxTcase 63 and the another MaxTcase 63

1. MaxTcase 61c = much better of them about 80mhz+ more 24/7 speed 3040mhz+
2. MaxTcase 63c = very hard to go higher than 2950mhz super pi m1.

Lower MaxTcase gooder?
I probably missed it but how do you see the MaxTcase?

I got an Opteron 146 PIB from Monarch earlier:
CABYE 0540FPMW #87 Max t-case 63c
I've only had it on water cooling with a Maze3 block so far.(IHS still on)
Stock voltage (1.40v in bios) got it upto 2800MHz stable.
1.425 2850MHz stable
1.475 2900MHz stable
1.525 2950MHz looks stable but i'm still testing.
I'm pleased with it so far, snagged it when it was $159USD ;)
My goal as many others is 3Ghz which i think will happen with more testing and tuning.

Man, what a steal. If this thing even hits 2.7ghz, my 3500+ venice is out the door fo shizzle. From the sounds of things I am looking closer to 2800-2900 without hitting voltage even.

If you get a CABYE or CABNE I can almost gaurantee 2.7-2.8 with stock voltage. This is by far the most stable ive had. The better silicon quality really makes these opterons so worthy of overclocking.

Well Kohan got his 146 today. went over to his house and clocked it up on stock cooling.

It did 2.9ghz with 1.45volts in bios which relates to 1.4 in windows. At 1.375 (windows) it is stable up to 2.85ghz

the stepping is 0540 CABYE.. which as most of you have said are the golden chips and this one didnt disapoint.

btw this was all done on stock cooling and thermal pad. I imagine with some better cooling it will do 3ghz stable with 1.45volts.. MAYBE will need 1.5-1.55 for 3ghz.. Either way its one hell of a chip..

for reference, chip was had at monarch on thursday via retail box.

I will be getting my 146 from monarch tommorow, baring FedEx continuing to be a-holes.

for most things the 165 would be better.. for 3dmark and super pi the 146 would be better. so i guess it maters waht ur doing.

soon enough everythign will be multi-threaded atleast to some extent and it wont be a contest.. but for now its highly application dependant.

am I board limited or am just having awesome bad luck (2.9 is awesome but can't get to 3.0 which is bad)?

Im also expieriencing the same problem, my CABYE 0540FPMW batch 0092 can do 2.7ghz @1.4v (OCCT/P95 stable) but no matter what voltage I use for 2.8ghz+ its totally unstable. Also OCCT is reporting my 5v rail all over the place.......would this also cause instability?? So Im hoping its either my board, PSU or runnning such a high divider.........anyone else think so as well?? Its either that or I have the worst clocking FPMW around :stick:

check out my 5v rail.........

The mobo itself could be going crazy and reading 5V wrong. I swear when something's not right, you start replacing your parts to see who/what was the culprit. As soon as I replace everything, I end up spending more and more money right after. A computer is like an endless pit. (Mostly because how fast technology is getting outdated)

ihs are on both has the temps are low, the 148 loads @ 41C and i dont think taking the ihs off with lower my volts

the 0540 cab2e is hit or miss, some only get 2.6ghz some have maged 2.8ghz and is similar to a cabge imo

CAB2E 0540 FPMW. I know it's not been priming for very long there, (I've been running Muon1 for more stability testing instead of Prime recently) but this chip is 100% stable at these settings, no matter what I throw at it. Hit an HTT limit now though, looking for a lot more out of my 146 :)

sorry but sp2004 for 1minute 30secs, my 146 can run it for that long @ 3.3ghz & is stable for benching gaming etc on 3.2ghz but fails prime after 5hours & now peed off, have to raise to 1.65V i think so i can brake 34,000 :slobber:

I suggest you look/read this:
http://www.vr-zone.com/index.php?i=746&s=3

I think there's no sense in talking bout low batch numbers.
The cpu are sorted, tested/binned to be ie. Opteron 146, but from where on the wafer they came, I don't see how we can know.

OK...so what would you like to see to prove to you that not every CAB2E is capable of no more than 2.8, or whatever ridiculous statement you made? I've got time, it's just a matter of running the benchmarks. I said I knew it hadn't been going long, that's because I was using my idle CPU cycles for something useful before I saw your post :rolleyes:

3DMark loops? Super-pi 32M? Prime (though prime is what sp2004 runs, so it'll be just as stable)? You name it, this chip is stable like this (317x9 @ 1.55v).

tatts
11-16-2005, 10:15 AM
first off, the guy said any 144 cab2e can hit 2.8ghz stable which is bs, ive seen alot stop at 2.6ghz and not many go past 2.8ghz stable (read before retaliating) :rolleyes:
stable imo is prime95 or sp2004 for 8hours+
