I will just be happy in about a week and a half or less when i Finally can try my Opty 146 on something other then this MSI Neo2 Plat. New set up includes better PSU, dual 7800GTX's a DFI sli DR (proven to oc past 4ghz) some Phase and dryice cooling with some new mem and H20 cooling parts.. Im easily hitting stable right at 3.1 ghz with ease on current with only H20 cooling im sure with the better board and mem alone i will be able to get some bigger fsb.. Come on stuff get here!!! I wanna play some more..

It would be interesting to see how much priming the top dogs do, after all isn't that why we're here at XS, to learn and try to emulate the top oc'ers. :)

I have started tweaking a 146 CABYE 0540APMW and it was able to bench at 3103MHz @1.65V so far (with Hot CPU Tester Pro) ;)
CPU-Z screen: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=53777

Anyway I have some problems with my DFI, and windows does not want to load 6 times to 10 (giveio.sys fails to load) no matter the o/c is. So, I have changed the CPU to a 144 CABNE 0540BPMW to test it a little using the Ultimate Boot CD only (prime and memtest are included). First, it seems to o/c quite a lot with stock volts, but unfortunately over about 2600MHz, it requires the Vcore to be quickly increased... As for now, it remembers me the 144 CABNE 0540APMW... let's see!

Ive come to find that P95 isnt all its cracked up to be as a stabillity test. Ive had some A64/FX cpu's fail prime but run Games at full speed all day for 6 hrs strait. Do every bench in the world just fine never a hitch. Ive had them run mem test and do cpu burn in and OCCT and never a fail But fire up Prime 95 and whamo Fail!!!. I dont think its the OC or anything thats the issue. I say its prime95 that has the issue. So i dont trust it completly. If all the abouve isnt good enough for showing its stable then nothing is. Just my opinion.....

With IHS intact 2.9 at 1.5v is Prime stable but thats about it. Its going up on ebay soon. I found removing the IHS lowers the temps but helps very little in gaining anything in regaurds to mhz with these Opterons, and yes I've removed 3 IHS with no sufficient improvement besides temps.

After major difficulties to make the DFI booting, I am testing the 146 CABYE 0540APMW with Prime95 under dos (with UBCD as I have only plugged the CD drive).
As for now, it fails after 20mins @3000MHz with 1.52V (Not too bad...). Despite of the failure, it seems me possible to test it at an increased frequency. So, Prime95 has been running for 10mins at @3100 with 1.55V+110%
Let's see! :D

Sure, that's too much for 3GHz; it was for 3.1GHz only ;) I will put it under waterchiller as soon as possible to see what it can really do.

Prime95 has ran during 2h18mins @3GHz with 1.55V. It's not really surprising since the cpu was able to take 3.1GHz @ 1.65V without being rock stable but enough to bench Hot CPU Tester.

Argh. This is killing me. So close....

0540 CAB2E FPMW...

2.95 @ 1.5v = rock solid, but load temps top 50C under moderately good H20.

3.00 @ 1.5v = fails Prime within a minute.

3.00 @ 1.6v = fails Prime within fifteen minutes, at ridiculous temps, like 62C.

I'm on the verge of popping the IHS, bring down those temps a few degrees, but I don't want to bother if it won't make a difference at 1.6v -- think bringing those temps down 5-10C (no IHS, maybe a new block...) could make it stable?

12-02-2005, 07:14 PM
Nah, my setup might not be the best but it's certainly respectable -- TDX, Eheim 1250, 2-199 core. I've got the block tightened down as far as it the springs allow, so there's some serious pressure on the core.

The thing is that this chip (apparently) responds very poorly to voltage bumps. At stock it loads in the high 30s, still 5C higher than my Venice at 2.6/1.52v. At 2.9/1.5v it loads at 52-53C. Another 100MHz and 0.1v, and we hit the low 60s.

Pretty big delta as well -- at 1.5v I'm seeing 37C idle, 52C load. By comparison my Venice idles at 24C, 33C load.

edit: Using AS5.

i was trying to figure out why my chip wouldn't do 3 ghz anymore after switching from 2x1 gig crucial to 2x512 bh-5. set jumper so i could get 3.4 volts to my ram. then noticed chip wouldnt do 3 ghz anymore.

figured it might be the instability caused by the jumper.

switched the jumper back and now the chip ran 10 hours of small fft prime with no error.

anyone using the dfi board notice if they get more stability when they are NOT using the 4volt vdimm jumper?

i was trying to figure out why my chip wouldn't do 3 ghz anymore after switching from 2x1 gig crucial to 2x512 bh-5. set jumper so i could get 3.4 volts to my ram. then noticed chip wouldnt do 3 ghz anymore.

figured it might be the instability caused by the jumper.

switched the jumper back and now the chip ran 10 hours of small fft prime with no error.

anyone else do any testing of this sort?

Guys could you help?

Any of you using phase change cooling?

When does the cold bug kick in on average with Opteron chips?

If any of you have found a work around for the Cold Bug with these chips and single stage please post.

Thanks

Things you could try. get your voltages set to where you want them for your OC. Then be sure to have A64 tweaker and Clockgen allready downloaded on your rig and ready to run. I would also recomend a program that will put a lil load on the CPU when you fire it up. This will put some heat in the chip and help against cold bug.

So when you boot into windows run (i use Super PI 32meg) program for load. I would recomend doing this at about -24 to -25 celsius for boot up. Then using Clockgen change your values of FSBand Multi to where you want them for OC set in place and then tune your mem timmings with A64 Tweaker. if you prefer to do A64 tweaker first thats fine. Try that to see if that helps.

Here is the same chip on an Asus A8N SLi - Deluxe .. limitation is the MB as Mx HT is 320 & 2T - then SATA controller drops the RAID.

Ive had it up into the 300's, have you tried upping the board volts? I was asking mainly cuz i was wondering if the board could hold you back in general. In the anandtech reviews they make it seem like some of the boards allow higher overclocks than others all other things being equal. Basically im asking if anyone went from something like an epox or msi and saw better clocks and if thats common or not.

Certain places in the UK are getting new stock regularly, all they have to do is be creative with what they tell their supplier. The reason opteron stock has dried up is because AMD doesnt want people buying them over normal a64 chips, which is bound to happen as they cost the same as the low end chips but have double the cash. You wont be seeing many more retail packs, as server builders use OEM.

What is the max Vcore you can safely apply to these opterons? Mine will be here on WED. I'll start low, but I never get good chips so I always end up on the high end of the Vcore range.

Im on water.. but i messed up on the instllation.... I went from radiator to the outlet barb on my tdx.. so it's not cooling directly over the cpu. My waterblock basically isnt acclerating water through the jet nozzle.. the water is just going in on 1 side throught he channels and back out to the inlet of the TDX plus I have crappy china thermal paste.. I should have better results once my AS ceramique arrives.

MACH II cooling.

Doing a 100% stable 3ghz at original Vcore but i cant even boot 3.2 ghz @ 1.6 vcore max stable is 3.3 ghz @ 1.72 vcore.
Isn´t this cpu most likely to overclock more? load temps at 1.72V is +3 C and
at original vcore -30C.
Doesn´t ever shows any errors in super pim raising 10 mhz makes the computer freeze instead of showing errors, so it is allways very stable or unbootable!
Very strange! I hoped to reach stable 3.5 ghz in about 1.63 vcore, but this seems to be impossible :(

Well it could very possible be the PSU.
But many times when prime and OCCT errors out quickly, it's related to memory timings/settings.

Well I have a 146 and 148, the 146 shows a higher MaxTCase (63deg c ) but the 148 (59 deg c) goes further so I dont think MaxTCase means anything.

The 146 also runs about 8 degrees hotter - using a Big Typhoon and looking for more than just Super PI1 M stability which BTW I can run 1M @ 3000 at 1.50v so thats pretty much useless for anything but a 1M run anyways. To get some real stability close to 3 Ghz I'm pumping her 1.64v. Like I said this chip runs really cool though.

Haven't seen them..

Recieved mine today (opty 146), but got to work, maybe I instal it tonight.

Nothing really, some lower maxTcase will go higher then an other do visa versa.
Maybe look at the wattage instead because i see people getting higher clocks with higer wattage from maxTcase.


Looks like my sistem has a ram issue...cause I can pass Super_PI 32mb @ 210mhz and CPU 2950mhz...than changed to 250 2-2-2-5 v 3,2V and CPU @ 3ghz and can`t get more than 7 loops, S&M @90% CPU passed withouth any problems, but it gave me an error in ram test...so the CPU is stable but has some problems with rame divider or settings...cause OCCT fais within 3 minuets and prime in about 10 seconds at every VCORE and FSB I gave to the CPU (have tried only 280 and higher...)...

Yep I have the same issue, but for now i am at 2900mhz and ram synced with loosen up timings 3-4-3-7 prime stable.

Well i need to test more before i can confirm its my tccd but its more likely ram setting or memcontroller.
I am still testing raw cpu speed and not so much ram/memcontroller.

Still my ramsticks are weird, I think one stick of ram doesn't like voltage above 2.6V and the other one needs more voltage to go higher. Still need to test them sepertly but from what i've seen in memtest i am quiet sure.
With my venice the maxed out at DDR620 3-4-3-7 @ 2.6V.

At the moment 2.9ghz stable at 1.525V real voltage.

well, tried my other 146 to see if my instability problems were caused by CPU, be that doesn't seem the case. It seems to have something to do with my m/b or memory. i still cannot run 270/280/290 x 10, but 300 x 7/8/9/10 is no problem! i wonder if you guys can still help me?

How good of an indicator is prime in real life usage as compared to say stability in spi32m and SnM? I have a proc that does ~2975 with 1.55v 32m stable, not sure about SnM. But it def does 2900 32m and SnM stable yet fails prime at 2900. To be fair though i think the prime issue may be related to memory/motherboard. Im using an epox 9nda3+ with gskill 2gb zx and i dont think the ram likes the motherboard. I really would like to know if anyone has played around with these processors on different mobos and seen large differences moving from one platform to another. At this point id like to say my mobo is the problem but i cant be sure.

update: after tweaking ram settings with a64 tweaker it seems it has stabilized me at least somewhat, i'm now at 2950 with higher ram timings that, if i had tried booting at this speed with these settings without the a64tweaks it would have crashed immediately. So 2950 @ 1.55v seems at least somewhat stable, i really need to get this thing on a good oc'ing mobo with my new water cooling.

Does my 144 0536 GPMW sucks? Can't get it prime stable over 2700 but it's 100 procent stable in games/windows and superpi @ 2843MHz. I guess my lack of cooling and contact between IHS and core may be a problem. Idle/Load temps are 36-38/55+ with a Thermaltake Venus 12. Have ordered a TT BT which should arrive til the weekend. My V-core is jumping from 1.55 to 1.62 all the time, not sure if my PSU give stable volts (Aspire 520W) Any suggestion how to get this a bit higher?

Ok, nm about the stability from A64 tweaker, after looking into it more it seems it doesnt change my ram settings at all. The extra stability came from switching to 2T so i could get into windows properly. This is really annoying, i think this chip/ram have a lot more in them if i got them on a good system. I'll see eventually i guess.

hi guys , my brother already make the VMODE in asrock 939 dual sata2 and now he can get 1.55vcore , the 144 CABGE with the stokcooler and 1.55v can hit the 2950mhz STABLE and 3000Mhz for the pic , and note that the pics its with the OC from the bios its not a pic making OC in clokgen cause there isnt any program to OC in windows for this board .

Here the pics:



2950@1.55v STOOKCOOLER STABLE >> http://img365.imageshack.us/img365/181/21hk.th.jpg (http://img365.imageshack.us/my.php?image=21hk.jpg)

:) :)

i think if the board have 1.6 vcore i can get 3ghz stable cause he can hit the 2950mhz stable with 1.55v
And also a litle thing its that the CPU dont have 24hours yet , with time maybe can go farther :) .
And for now its all , next step its past the CPU for the tower with WC and see if we can get a better board with more vcore.

So what did you change that got your clock from 2950 to 3000 MHz?

Just in case there are some more tweaks that might help:

I'm running a piss-poor 2GB set, does 2-3-2-6 at 200, but tops out around 220 with 2.5-3-3-7. (My old 290MHz TCCD was nice for benching, but the real world started needing more address space.) Anything that might help with a 2GB setup?

With all the optys I have had nothing is a quicker stopper then memory settings. You need some different ram if you have to run those settings.

This chip is stable at 2.9Ghz with 1.48v. The picture is at 2.8Ghz however with the exact same voltages it is stable at 2.9Ghz.

The chip is not stable at 3Ghz even with 1.55v. It will boot and crash in windows.

Ok straight away i noticed this chip wasnt as good as the CABNE. It failed to boot at 2.9Ghz with 1.55v.

At the moment i am running prime with it at 2.8Ghz 1.55v. Its been running for the last 30min and is ok.

Ill try lower voltages and then see if its stable at 2.8Ghz.

STABLE at 2.8Ghz with 1.48v :D

Guys I'm really confused and I have quite a few problems... bear with with me:

1) Neither CPU-Z nor Clockgen can read my memory clock when using the 140 divider... is this a bug? MemTest86 seems to think it's running 1:1 at 280Mhz (it's definately not!) Only 3DM'01 gets it right!
2) Related to this, it seems using the 140 divider automatically disables 1T for me and bandwidtch takes a massive hit (see Sandra). Is this a BIOS bug?
3) Apparently my memory is running at 194Mhz, but how is this possible?? 2800/194 = 14.43 and I thought A64 could only use integers as dividers... shouldn't it be using 2800/14 = 200Mhz?!

So what did you change that got your clock from 2950 to 3000 MHz?

We only have the "after" A64 shot.

Just loosened some subsidiary timings, twtr, etc. Not sure exactly what did it, though. Two days ago I couldn't run essentially the same settings, even at 2.5-3-3-7. Hell, it wouldn't even boot into Windows at 2.5-3-3-7 at a 2/3 multi, but would at 7/10. Basically, I just played around out of frustration and suddenly it worked -- wish I could tell you more, but there it is. Apparently Opterons are picky as hell about mem timings, not necessarily in normal ways.



With all the optys I have had nothing is a quicker stopper then memory settings. You need some different ram if you have to run those settings.

Yep. Something that did at least 250 would be nice. But looking at those timings (now that I've got a stable config and can -- hopefully -- go back) do you see anything that you'd change?
