I have tweaked an Opteron 144 CABNE 0540BPMW today and results are really poor.

OCCT max stable was 2588MHz at 1.78V :slobber: . The only good point is the temp which was 34°C in idle and only 48°C in full load! Anyway, I have tried to give it more volts but it failed to load windows with 1.80V.

Yes, I have one of those (and I bent 2 pins on it somehow). It is equally poor as yours; I have spent all afternoon trying to get stability at 2.5GHz on stock HSF; I've tweaked the RAM until it's sick of me and given vcore 1.52v so far but it still isn't happy. I thought it needed more volts, but 1.78?? :eek:

Should have a 146 CACJE 0546 next week... hope it's better than this!

As for now CABNE 0540BPMW is the worst stepp I've ever seen... CABGE chips are better :eek:

I hope CACJE 0546 will give better results. ;)

I ordered two, I fired the one that I was building for someone and it did 3gighz no problem w/ 1.55vcore. The 2nd one I will prolly have to ebay since the 2nd guy i was going to build a system for decided to go dual-core.

CAB2E 0545CPAW opteron 148 from ZZF.


Not bad for the price!


I've had a few people ask the specs-

It was just on a asus a8n-e that I built for a coworker. I tested it for 5 minutes before giving it to him, seemed stable, but you never know. The point of my post is that the 0545 CPAW doesnt seem like a bad chip.

From what I've read, we can expect them to be rubbish. I've got one :(

Unsure whether to RMA it to Scan(since they sent me OEM, after me paying for retail) in the hopes that it'll clock better or not, can't test it yet as I don't have the mobo to.

No need to apologise so much. Easy mistake to make if you think that certain steppings perform the same regardless of week. Yeah, I've seen several CABNE 0545s do around 2900 stable. You have a pretty good chip, did you buy it from RL supplies by any chance?

specofdust
12-10-2005, 06:51 PM
Nope, Scan. They aparently had to hunt the country to find them, and paid £50 over selling price, but decided to do it to fullfill christmass orders. No testing till my mobo and graphics card arrive though. I shouldn't say this, but they're getting another batch of retail ones in mid-january, if anyone in the UK is intrested(that comes from their customer support person I spoke to).

The 0540 BPMW is what i have in my sys now,i still got a 850mhz overclock out of her,but in comparison to the 'FX silicon' ones it's quite poor,i've also ordered one from Scan and this time round it's a more obscure stepping OSA148DAA5BN CACJE 0544 EPAW,i think a few aussies and Kiwi's have these,and a member here ,szulaski (?),got 2850 from his 146,so if your 0545 doesnt cut it ,just send it back saying you paid for retail,and you could end up with the CACJE stepping with the replacement...which could be better worse.Cpu city have some more opty's in,these are the CACJE steppings,according to the admin there,these are getting 3.0-3.1 into windows,and 100% stable at 2.8-2.9.

On par with the CACJE's it seems,i dont think there will be any more 3gigs 144/146's with the ones that are in retail at the mo in the UK.
2950 tops with the 146's ,less with the 144's.
You could try Monarch or Tank guys,i think they'll send to the UK,and they still have good steppings. :)

EDIT: sorry,CAB2E's are slightly better i think,i misread the stepping you gave.

12-11-2005, 04:27 AM
Well, as long as i get 2.8 GHz I'll be happy. Better than the ol' venice anyway :D. the venice i have right now cost £60 inc p&p of eBay and had 5 bent pins does 2.61 GHz at 1.53 V 24 hour prime stable as well. :p:

so I should go ahead with the CAB2E 0545 CPMW then it seems. What do you have yours at right now thebeast?

Myopty just got here its a cabye 0543 and does 2750 at stock volts. Maybe it will do a little more. After raising to 3000 I had to continually raise the volts to 1.6 and the temps shot up to 50c with an rbx and bix2. Now I'm at 2900 at 1.5-1.525v (windows and bios) and my temps are around 46-48c. Do you guys think I should remove the IHS. I think I do.

My venice would hover around 38c load.

Now I'm around 50c again. Is this a save temp????

Crucsh pads, will i need them????

Fr3ak
12-12-2005, 10:59 AM
Opterons run hotter than Venice's.
As long as your load temps stays <55&#176;C you are safe.
I wouldnt run it with higher temps 24/7...

If your IHS aint seated right, you might have a temp drop after removing it, but I also heard from a lot of people, that they had almost the same, or even higher temps after removing the IHS, because you have less surface to deal with the same amount of heat...

After raising to 3000 I had to continually raise the volts to 1.6 and the temps shot up to 50c with an rbx and bix2. Now I'm at 2900 at 1.5-1.525v (windows and bios) and my temps are around 46-48c. Do you guys think I should remove the IHS. I think I do.

My venice would hover around 38c load.

Now I'm around 50c again. Is this a save temp????

Crucsh pads, will i need them????

I have the same stepping and my chip runs very similar. The temps are a major issue on mine too.. on air it loaded close to 60C with an XP90 anywhere near 1.6V.. on my vapo LS it still runs too hot.. I'm tempted to pop the IHS too

- - I also heard from a lot of people, that they had almost the same, or even higher temps after removing the IHS, because you have less surface to deal with the same amount of heat...Temps might rise only if you use an aluminum cooler.

I have been getting ready to build a new rig, and was thinking about the 3700+, but with everyone getting opterons, I was wondering what the equivalent of the 3700+ would be in an opteron. And, if I were to get a 165, is it worth it at this point, and what steppings are the best.

Thanks

If I buy from zzf, should I get a 144, 146, 148, or 165?

I took off the IHS and the temps are higher now. So I have to go read up on how to apply the artic silver on a bare cpu. If I were you I'd wait because your problemmight not be the IHS. It could just be an extremely hot cpu. Who knows. Oh and if you're going to takeoff the IHS use a razor blade froma mach3 or a quattro or some kind of shaving razor. I tried both and the shaving razor made it very easy. The other razors were worthless. No wonder so many broken cpus.

Just read the threads to find your most desired stepping then find where people are getting them from. I got 2 cabye 0543 fromthe egg and It will do 2950 so far. It is basically like paying 230 for fx 57 performance.

yasoumalaka
12-12-2005, 02:57 PM
lemonlime I don't know if I can suggest removing the IHS. The temps dropped a lot, but I don't think our cpus will hit anything much higher than 2950. My PWMIC is at 64c right and more voltage doesn't seem to help. I'll probably just abuse the chip for a day or two with prime95 and then I'll see if I can get it higher.

I should add that I have only messed around with the 11 multi.

yasoumalaka,
Your readings are safe. No need to worry about it unless it goes >70ºC.

Most people have a fan either on their cpu or chipset which means more air flow on PWMIC (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=37642&d=1127890233) and lower temps.

Well mine tops out at 2950. My temps are a bit high. 50-51c with IHS off. I guess this is safe.

How do different multis affect the OCing. I haven't tried any except 10 and 11.

I'm keeping mine at 2930Mhz. It seems like the optimal frequency for my chip.

Too true! It's game stable at 2.8/1.45v and I've booted at 2.92/1.55v. Daren't do too much at that as the temps really start to climb with stock HSF. Gotta mod my case, then it'll be Vapo LS time. :cool:

Well I'm not sure I'm reinstalling windows because I was getiing some wierd shut downs at low settings. This happend to me before with my venice. At on point in time it would blue screen now matter what then I did a reinstall and no problems. I think it was from trying to go over ddr 600 1t with the patriot.


Well that was funny. I just reset everything to default in the bios to transfer some files before the reinstall and I got the blue screen. Maybe my hdd is messed up??? I have 2 new ones laying around so I can test this. If it is WD will be on my sh1t list.

Has anybody seen a good thread on windows corruption from too much OCing? Is it needed? I was always thinking my setting were screwed, until I got random reboots at stock with my venice. It would be cool if there was a program that would detect corruption. Is there one??

How has your mem bandwidth improved with these chips. Mine has been the same at lower speeds. I can't get the patriot back to ddr600 1t though, but like I said the same bandwidth. So I thgink these chips are also very cool in regard to mem bandwidth too.

Right now the Samsung UCCC gigabyte sticks are very solid and the best buy for overclockers, IMHO.

You find them in G.Skill PC4000 HZ, OCZ PC4000 Gold (the GX has the new heatspreaders, very sexy IMHO) and the black Mushkin PC4000.

The G.Skill just dropped to $205 shipped, the GX is to be had with a MIR for $235 and you can get one stick of the mushkin for $99 after MIR (unfortunately newegg in their wisdom put a one-MIR per household limit on the MIR so no dual-channel that way, idiots).

Finally got my Opteron under water. 37C load on 1.4v @ 2.95GHz (CABNE 0530APMW). 3GHz was stable with 1.45v for 8 minutes before Prime95 failed, and since I'm a stabability slut I dropped her down to 2.95GHz for now, until I get some more free time to tweak it.

I'll post some screenshots when I can, the highest I got was 45 minutes Prime stable @ my current settings, which for now is good enough.

Hey guys, im having trouble getting my Opty prime stable. I can prime @ 2740mhz~ @ 1.40v for hours without errors, but i can't quite get 2800mhz stable.
The odd thing is, i can run 2980mhz @ 1.54v through SuperPi 1M, and get a screenshot of 3080mhz @ 1.58v, but i can't prime for more then half an hour on 2800mhz @ 1.52v.
It just seems odd that there is such a large difference between "benchable" clocks and 100% primeable clocks. Heat shouldn't be an issue as i was previously running a 3200+ @ 1.65v, 2600mhz prime stable (10hr+) on the same setup. I've reseated the HSF (xp-120) twice, with no better results, or no worse for that matter.

So far i've done about 20hours of CPUBurnK7 (2 overnight sessions, 10 hours) to try and burn it in, but it doesn't seem to be doing much.

Ideas? :confused:

My CAB2E 0545 CPMW is at 2700 MHz with 1.408 volts. Still needs burning in...Failed prime 4 times at this speed, 1st for 17 mins, then 22, then 35, and now its been priming for over an hour :) *touches wood like mad*

Is it just me, or do these chips run quite hot? I'm at 44*C under full load at these speeds and volts.....My venice which does 2610 MHz didnt exceed 44*C at even 1.53 volts. :confused:


Ajam good results, please put your new results!.

OCCT is pretty good - nothing beats a few hours of Prime - buts its good if it passes. Mine is a hot running chip 44-45 load. My 146 @ 2920 was 39 load and my 0542FPMW 148 was load of like 37. Its stable so far so who cares!!

The cooler is cool to touch anyways...
idle is like 32, mine have been 26- 28 so the sensor reads a few degress hotter I think.

Nah the Heatsink gets that hot too... which means heat is escaping the Core (meaning there must be atleast decent contact). Plus I'm not cutting th IHS on another CPU until it goes under DICE :p:.

I got the same chip as some people here from Newegg 148 CABYE 0543FMPW and it does 2.8GHz at 1.5V and 2.9GHz at 1.6V, but at 1.6 gets over 50C and I dont like it, I wonder how you guys are doing to get 3.2GHz or 3.1GHz or 3.0GHz at 1.5v. Please advice.


1.6 is alot.

I'm at 3000 @ 1.47 load is about 42 (prime for 10 hr) with this chip, it runs a few deg hotter than my other Opterons.

Try these settings...

273x11.0 with v1.500 set in BIOS and throw a divider on it to start

Or...

300x10.0 with v1.500 set in BIOS and same thing with a divider...

Load temps for me are 42C the highest I have seen with a TT Big Typhoon and a plain old 120MM Fan on it. Closed case and all.

Received an opty146 last week. Been testing it since saturday.

Stepping is cab2e 0546gpaw.

http://www.wanaka.nl/cab2e.jpg

Was able to do 2700 @ stock volts. 2800 needed 1,36 volts :D
But 2900 was even at 1,6 volts no go.:shrug:
So decided to burn it in. And now, 2900 is priming at 1,45 volt while I am writing this post. Before this I primed 2900 at 1,5 volts to be on the safe side.
But I think I can try 1,4 volts after this.

I never thought I would achieve this from a very new chip!:banana:

Guys - i have just got a new stepping Opty 146 (cacje 05468bpmw).

I have read in a few other forums that these are doing 2.8 at stock. I am struggling to get mine to 2.75 @ 1.56. I have my BH-5 set right down to stock speeds to test the CPU (although i know that it will do 240 at 2-2-2-8 when i give it enough juice).

At 2.75 the CPU idles at 33 (Watercooled).

What voltage do u guys have your LDT and chipset set to?

Anything else i can tweak before upping the volatge again?

Thanks

set your LDT at 1.3v and chipset at 1.6v. some times it takes a bit of voltage for the CPU's mem controller to be stable.

Cyprio, is this one of the CPUCity ones? I've had mine for about 10 days or so. With stock HSF it panned out to 2.8 G at 1.47v - 1.49v, LDT 3x, Z503 @ 166 3-3-2-7, LDT and chipset at stock volts. Did a 2.92 boot but it was hot hot. This is with A8N32 mobo.

If I can't get round the cold bug, it'll have to be sold. :(

Cyprio
12-19-2005, 04:18 AM
yup - its one of the CPU city ones. Maybe it needs more voltage to go higher than 2.8. mines running at 33 degrees so i am guessing i can push it further... can i? :)

12-19-2005, 05:45 AM
I turned down the volts to get a stable overclock with mine,the A8N32-SLI overvolts quite a bit,my 148 CACJE tops out at 2.9,but my BH-5 maxes at 240,which makes it unstable for 3d mark tests,my memory is holding me back on my bandwidth.
Sisoft gives me the most accurate reading from the 'cpu&bios info' on the voltages.
I'm at 1.54v running 2887.5x10.5..memory at 240 3.2v 5-2-2-2 183 divider.

@Cyprio

With care! I got to 2.92 with at least 1.55v (might have been more); just keep an eye on the temps. If you're going to damage it, this is how.

Hmm, 33 idle on water - that's quite warm, and you're already at 1.56. I run a w/c Clawhammer at 1.675v every day, but that's a 1.5v chip. Set yourself a limit like 1.625 or whatever you feel comfortable with and see how it runs for a short while. GL

@thebeast

The A8N32 vcore overvolts about 0.06v compared with BIOS - freaked me out when I got a dmm onto it. My foray into 2.92 G might well have been 1.6v which is a tad too much for stock HSF.

I try that 300x10 at 1.5v since my memory is rated at 300 2.5-4-4-8 2T, but that doesnt work. I run prime and it fails right away, I tried using a divider and it's the same thing. One weird thing at stock the Epox mobo sends out 1.47V that is totally weird. I havent had any time to play with the new cpu (i'm graduating this semester) but at least it seems stable at the settings in my sig, my sister have been playing on the pc for hours and i havent had one problem yet. I'll try that again either way, any of you guys "burned-in" the cpu? Thanks for the replies.

thats impossible my friend. My 148 its OCCT 100% stabe 3GHZ@1,40v , i have to see in prime95 now , but the dnottis said that 1.40v its OCCT stable and at prime95 he nedd 1.44v i have to see that. But if you have occt stable you should be able to run Pi1MB , thats strange

Room temps are pretty high with the heat on in my house though right now.

Anything lower than v1.475 is not stable at all. And even with v1.65 @ 3.15GHz isn't stable either. I need to maybe set this bad boy under some water cooling.

Hey guys, I just joined these forums and this is my first post(YAY!) Well seeing as the hype was big for these 939 opterons, I went ahead and bought one since I felt that my venice @ 2.85 just wasn't enough. I just got my oem opty from the egg today, hoping to get the 0543 caybe that others recently got and seem to be overclocking REALLY well. I was kinda disappointed when I opened it and it was a CAB2E 0546BPMW...However I am currently at 2.92 with 8m super pi stability (haven't tried farther here yet, still testing) but I tried to raise it a little further to 2.94 and started fail super pie like crazy, and went as far as 1.71v with no improvement. I really want to hit 3 ghz so any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
