ok, show me some prime stabe 144 cab2e's doing 2.8ghz plz without ridicolous volts, most do 2.6ghz - 2.8ghz and have only seen 2 over 2.8ghz but not sure they was prime stable

What do you define as ridiculous volt's? Here's one of the two 144 CAB2E 0540 FPMW's that I got. I don't have any prime screen shot's but it's first night out it ran for 12+ hr's at the speeds below. 1.62 in the bios, showing 1.52 in windows using the latest version of cpuz. If you don't want to take my word for it, I'll see about getting some screens after a night of p95.

Just a Update on my OC so far of my 146 CABYE 0540 FPAW

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v136/wayland7/146-3.jpg

Was a little unstable @ 3.1 but did run a 1M SuperPi with NP. Can probably get a little higher with some memory tweaking but I think its starting to run out of gas. :confused:

Doing 3GHz stable 100% load for 24hrs at only 1.45v :D
All of this was with watercooling.

stay away from 1.7v i think too much voltage.

1.7 V can kill my Proc ?

Can anyone answer me this question......

I just got a DFI mobo from Newegg. It was not shrink wrapped nor was there a sticker between the box and cover. Do DFI mobo's not come sealed?

I just want to know whether I was duked with a used mobo, or this is how they come.....

Thanks in advance

I bought my DFI from a guy on ebay, it came in a brown box in an anti-static bag with nothing else. I am 99% sure it is brand new however.

Mine 146 0540 CABYE FPBW can do 3ghz @1.408V...but it is stragne, cause 3times it passed 16h+ SP2004 now can`t pass it any more...but is OCCT, Super_32m and 3dmark05 100% stable...I can`t pass 300HTT stable even at 1,55V...could it be the MOBO that can`t do 300HTT+? This is my 2nd Ultra-D MOBO and before I had an 0517APAW 3000+ Venice that can`t pass 300HTT...but when I sold it to a friend he can run it @320HTT withouth problems... :slapass: :slapass: :slapass: I have changed alos the PSU but the problem is still here...Any ideas?

I have the same PSU as you Primoz78, Tagen 580 U15 Modular

While I have'nt checked out the rails yet (will do later and report back) it certainly has not changed any of my overclocks or stability after I very recently changed from my Bluestorm 500 which my Son needed (stole :eek: )

Havent you adjusted the pot yet?
My tagan 480-u22 was reading 11.7v on the 12v line when stressed. The trick made my psu much more stable and is now reading ~12.05v at full load.
Works as well for the Tagan 530-U22.

I think 1,7V will be just fine so long the temps are respectable.

After some more testing I can do sp 1m on 3ghz, but it's too hot! From 1,5V to 1,52V its getting just worse. May I will test under my phase change cooler later..

Looks like the IHS is seated very well on yours, looking at the load temps.

yes, the 146 0540 FPBW with 0524er Batch is really hot too.
Under 1,5V and 3100MHz there is a Temp >50 Grad. And prime do not like temps >42.

Its priming 2500 right now cause thats all Core Center lets me adjust via windows, lol. 3 hours no errors @ 1.36V. I'm sure it will do 2.9 or more but I'll try for more via the bios tonight. By the way I will be posting screenies but my core was within like 20 of yours in the assembly plant ;-). That bodes good news fo rme!

I just got mine today from ZZF and it's a 0540FPAW, batch#504??

I wasn't very happy :( but threw it in at 300x10@1.45 and it went right into windows. Bumped it up to 1.47 and benched it for about an hour.

i got a small problem, not sure if its my board or the cpu's mem controller.
i can bench my 146 @ 3.2ghz no problem 1.625V but running occt or sp2004 @ 10x310 1.625V fails within 2 minutes yet occt finishes np @ 10x309 1.55V WTF?

edit: just ran occt @ 9x345 (3.107ghz) 1.6V 140 ram divider passed no problem, put ram divider upto 150 (258mhz) & fails straight away again and i know its not the ram as it runs 280mhz 6-3-3-2.5 and its only on 8-4-4-2.5 atm


another update:
just passed occt @ 10x310 1.6V using a 150 ram divider (221mhz) :toast:
it looks like as soon as the ram goes over 250mhz when clocked to 3ghz+ it fails, guess ive solved the problem, now to keep clocking :banana: :banana: :banana:

Got this in the mail tonight from Tankguys:


Good Evening!

We got our shipment of 146's tonight, and we have checked the steppings on all of them. Based on your spot in line, you have been given a CAB2E 0540 FPMW.

If you decide that you do not want this stepping or you wish to cancel your order for any other reason, you must let us know before Sunday night. Otherwise, this will be going out on Monday, and we'll forward you a tracking number as soon as we ship!

First off, how sweet is that, giving you an option to cancel once you know the stepping? Kudos to TG.

But you knew I was getting to this: Whaddaya think? Keep her, or toss her back?

@tatts ... I have also noticed a similar situation .. that at lower speeds the Mem can run up much higher but start getting over 3.1 and the controller seems to struggle...

even dropping the multi did not help ... I know this MB is good for up to 400-405 as the 3000+ Venice liked 375x8, and this 146 @ 395x9 was ok in Memtest.

What BIOS are you running? I have tried the new FX60Test beta but just could not get it to be stable .. have gone back to 623-2 as I found 704-2BTA was not a good fit on this MB. Maybe try 510-2FIX?

what's the story with removing the IHS lately?
my cabye 0540fpwm seems to need 1.55v to be game-stable @3ghz..(was prime/occt stable at 1.47v... so much for that.)
gets up around 52c+ under load.. 35-36c idle with my watercooling and as5..
I'm thinking RBX + ihs removed would be much better contact..(rbx doesn't cover the whole ihs).. should I try it?
still have a 0536 that does 2.8 laying here so not too worried about killing another(r.i.p 2.4c) cpu with a razorblade.. atm

yep, using the hiper type r 580w :D
the mem controller is struggling when it gets to 3.1ghz+ so have to keep ram close to 200mhz to get it stable, more mhz on the cpu is better than mhz on the ram tho :D
struggling again @ 3.2ghz, can bench it & play COD2 with 1.6V but occt isnt playing ball, will have to play with ram more :(

Well this isn't anything you haven't seen already. 146 CABYE 0540 @ 2800 1.392vcore (http://www.student.oulu.fi/~klepikko/pc/opteron.JPG). Stupid me - didn't write down the whole stepping :slapass: Can't remember anymore which one it was: FPBW or FPMW :rolleyes: I'm going a bit slower because it's my first A64 rig and only had it since monday.

The best part is that the cpu was on some kind of special offer in alternate. I got it with only 149€ (boxed) :D Now it has gone up to 164€ but none in stock. How can you beat that? :cool:

Finally got time to tune my Opty 146 CABYE 0540FPMW, received Thursday from Monarch.

Did stuggling to get it SuperPI32M stable, and found out it is the memory, that giving headache, CPU by itself is very good actually.

First tried the Geil One SE 2x512MB TCCD, interesting thing is, if set Row Cycle Time (Trc) to 9 passed the PI 32M, but will fail if at 7.
http://members.shaw.ca/tsopin/111951.jpg

Then tried G.Skill 1GBGH. Worked out fine at DDR 504, 2-2-2-3, at DDR544, 2-2-2-5, ok for PI 1M, but no further, need time for tuning.
http://members.shaw.ca/tsopin/111952.jpg

Glad to have this baby on hand, as part of my clooection, sit aside with the Venice 0517EPMW. The collection will keep growing......

DId tried 10x310 at 1.55V, but at that time, did not tune memory's setting well, may be it will work if I set the Trc to 9, just thinking..... :p:

Pancake here's my 146 doing 3000 with 1.60v (21c ambient) using what most would consider an inferior waterblock by todays standards the dangerden maze3.
What makes it work well is the radiator(chevy truck engine radiator) and pump(littlegiant 475) and a 22" boxfan on the radiator.
As you can see there is no heatsoak in my watersystem and tight 8.5 degree delta between the idle and load temps.
I think most of you guys have good blocks but the heatexchangers (rads) aren't performing that well. Most of the commercial computer radiators and
automotive heatercores are the two pass design which don't let the water slow down enough to remove the heat.
Example: inlet is one end tank where the water flows to the opposite end then returns to the other side where the outlet is beside the inlet tank.
I think the biggest improvent would be to find a radiator that has the inlet and outlet on the opposite ends of the heatexchanger rows or run higher CFM fans on the radiator.
Just my :2cents:

yea youre absolutely correct. im using a dual 2 x 120mm rad that came with a asetek antarctica kit , black ice rad , it only had 1/4" barbs on when i got it but i swapped it out for 1/2" ones but the thread is still 1/4" so thatll be the restriction , and im using the crap asetek res to with inlet and out at a 45 degree angle to one another. gonna get my ass down the hardware store and get me T connector to make a t line tomorow hopefully. and have to buy a new rad as i managed to melt the top off my heatercore with a blowtorch lol :slapass:

If it has thermal paste on it, and it is a boxed version you bought, then the cpu has already been used, and probably returned for some obscure reason (bad clocker??).
Even if it is a tray version you bought, the cpu should be clean wihout any traces of themal paste.

I haven't had a chance to play with my Opty 146 CABNE 0530APMW in almost two weeks. Trying to sneak in a few minutes this morning.

Last I left it I had it 32M stable at 3.46ghz but any higher and it crapped out. I thought it might be my Twinmos SP UTT holding things up and sure enough when I dropped a bigger divider on it, I was finally able to meet my goal. I was reluctant to use the 140 divider because the bios has a hard time reporting the correct memory speed. I believe the actual memory speed is around 245 although CPU-Z picked it up as 350. :p: Everest seems to know whats up.

My goal for this CPU when I first started playing with it was 3.5ghz. Finally made it! :toast: :woot:

Sorry but SP2004 is not the best Stabilitytest.
If you want to go sure then use Prime95 version 24.14!
And make the Test Custom FFTS in place changing every 15 Minutes. (8-4096).
Thats the ultimative Stabilitytest for the CPU!!!!!!!!

Rufus7
11-21-2005, 06:20 AM
The SP2004 is the Old version of Prime 95 Versions before 24.xx.
And these versions are not optimized to set the new CPUs under 100%Load.
Prime Versions higher than 24.11 are better for Stability Test.
Try it and you will see. Same Frequency and Vcore and than let SP2004 run. After an Hour try it with Prime 24.14 Custom FFTS in Place . And the CPU will soon give up.

SP2004 is like SuperPi.Says nohting about Stability.
If you dont believe it test it out with SP2004 an Prime95 24.14.
Set a Vcore an Frequency thats Stable under SP2004 und then let Prime95 24.14 Custom
FFTs in place changing every 15 Minutes run. And you will fail in the first minutes or seconds. And thats the Truth.

Or Try it with RC5-72 or Setihome.

I just removed one on my 146 CABYE 0536GPMW. Load temps of 53C on Water with a Swiftech Storm had me pissed so off it came.

Load temps dropped 14C to 39C with 1.55v @ 2800MHz.

Be very carefull using the razor blade. I found it much easier to slide the razor blade under the IHS at a corner, more like just pushing it under the IHS. But take care not to slide blade in to far. There are some circuits in there that can be damaged. Just take a look at one some has posted with the IHS off and you will see what I mean.

I'm sure someone else has posted this in this thread before but here it is again. A short movie on the removal. This fella used a razor and a screw driver to pry the IHS off. I didn't like the idea of twisting a blade under the IHS so I just used the razor to cut the sealing material but either will work.

So and thats running still yesterday here on my 170 0536MPMW. Ambient Temps between 17-18,5°C.

in all fairness, 2.5ghz on a 170 isnt much of a OC compared to others and you go on about this prime 24.14 but its only using 50% of your cpu, not exactly tortue is it? :stick:

But your first Screen at 3,1Gig and 1,5Vcore under Air is interesting.

I have an Ambient between 17,5°C und 18,5°C but you Chipset at higher Ambient is lower than mine.
And i have the original DFI Northbridgecooler on Board.
Yours must be modded or under water or your Ambient is below 15°C.
Yes it's modded, here is a pic of my old setup with tuned VapoChill LS, but I use that NB cooler, 100% copper, fan @ silent :)

..and ambient temp is 22-23ºC ;)

There is always some dissent as to what is deemed to be an acceptable proggy to show 100% torture stability (mainly by those who's systems are not 100% using Prime95 v24.14 :rolleyes: )

Hehheh, that's true :p:


You have a marvellous chip there Dani if you can run Prime v24.14 @ over 3.1Gigs :fact: :clap: , definately a keeper :)

He has only highlited one instance, there should be two showing 50% each, he has shown two instances running in the background each taking 50% of available processing power :)

Also 2.55Gig is not very high but his Vcore is very low, but on average the 170's will do 2.7GHz with under 1.5Vcore which IMHO is nothing to sniff at

Check out this (http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?p=28423#post28423) linky that confirms my findings :fact:

Tatts you know as well that CPU-Z validation counts and not what you have in your Bios Settings.Your 1,55Vc for 3.1Gh isnt amazing. Because you havew to give in your Bios
1,55 and 104% VID. that´a too much for a Screenstable or Windowsstable System!
Gonna show you 3,1Gig at 1,408Vc not Primestable but Bench and Windowsstable.On Air with iHS.

well if were going by cpu-z volts which are wrong then mine is 1.5V for 3.1ghz which is stable (not bench stable) i can bench mine @ 3.2ghz 1.55V (in bios) but why? it fails prime so isnt stable. i only ever give results which are stable & by the voltage to what i set in the bios as it is alot more accurate than any windows app, use a MM to measure your OC and i bet you it reads slightly higher than you set in the bios and nowhere near what cpu-z tells you.
head over to dfistreet, you might be suprised & even learn something ;)

p.s. show me some more 146's doing 3.1ghz stable with 1.55V or less (bios) or 1.5V in cpu-z please

there aint many doing 3.1ghz on that list & all but 1 needing more vcore, also, if you have a look around, youll find i posted a SS of 3.1ghz stable using 1.5V in cpu-z :rolleyes: the one youre referring to is a 0542fpmw which i got today and isnt much of a clocker

i seriously suggest you do some homework mate.
mine can run prime 24.14 for 3 hours easy @ 3.2ghz but fails on occt? occt is only a pre prime test, surely you know that? & everyone knows a OC isnt stable unless prime has run for at least 8 hours, 2 hours is just tickling it :rolleyes: and when did anyone say superpi was used for stability?
