Try using a 166 divider, (just try it) 11x, and raise up the HTT to get your speeds. I don't know why, but the ones I've tried and seen several others also, seem to prefer it.http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/7672/opc2hrsp20043102144v1an.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

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!

What was the Vcore in order to run the chip @2.92Ghz?

Right now its at 1.59 v. I have homebuilt watercooling and my load temps are around 45-46c. I will post some screens soon with more info but right now im at work :( , I have a feeling its my ram cause not only is mt UTT REALLY finicky but I am also not yet used to the mem controller.

You was close to completely anticipate my second question... ;) What divider did you use? Did you ever tweak them appart from the CPU in order to see how they could really perform? Your combination of Geils' might take about 280MHz in 1:1 (if not higher)...
However, I have tested 2 weeks ago a good Opty 146 (CABYE0540APMW) which was able to do more than 3.1GHz under water and the improvement of the max bootable frequency was as follow:

MHz Volts
3170 1.71
3160 1.65
3150 1.59
3120 1.56

Sure there are not max stable values, but they give a good idea of the expectable improvement above let's say 1.60V (max stable frequency was 3118MHz @1.70V with 54°C during OCCT)... But your chip might be different, some love volts while other do not :D And it also depends on the cooling, but on some chips you could hit the wall even if you use a good air cooling.
Good luck; Let's see your screens...

its ok like this or should i change the multi to x11 again and 273x11 and ram to 273mhz????
Mascaras that´s the best you can have,i dont think that putting de multiplier to 10 you're going to have any gain in performance.

wow, you're lucky your processor isn't a molten piece of silicon with 1.8v. LTD is a fancy way of saying HTT. You want to make sure the LDT multiplier keeps the HTT below 1GHz. If you leave it at Auto it'll go with the multi that the cpu designates. If the cpu supports 1GHz HTT then it will have a 5x multi and 305x5 is way too high for the processor to handle. Read the OC threads and guides thoroughly before doing anything more. You are really lucky you didn't fry your cpu at 1.8v.

No, I put the voltage of 1,8 on the chipset, not the CPU:nono:. Even if I put the LTD to 1 the htt does not go over 305

just got an opteron 148 for the comp im building my friend. its a cabye 0542 fpmw, got a dfi nf4 sli-d and 2gb of g.skill ddr500. so i found the max htt of the board to be approx 350, the max ram to be like 270 and max ht to be 1200ish, but when i go to find the max cpu clock, this chip simply will not overclock at the 11x multiplier. it ran 350x8, but whenever i try to run it with 11x multiplier. it just refuses to post unless its at 200htt. anyone know why it might be doing this? hopefully i dont have similar problems with the 165 i just got for myself.

You want to set your LDT/FSB Ratio to a number that will get you as close as you can get to 1000. Example...300 you want 3.0x ; 250 you would want 4.0x

Also try using the 10.0 Multiplier for the CPU...they seem to like it better. Try something like 300x10.0 at around v1.500 volts with a 166 Divider on your memory to start.

$230AUD vs $238USD ($314AUD).

Besides my 146 does that! :p:

Opteron 148
CABYE 0543FPMW

Finally got a 24/7 100% 24 hour prime stable, cold-bug free configuration that I use for day to day gaming, folding general use (see first image).. 3.3 is a piece of cake, but I can't leave the system idle for terribly long without some load on it. Good for benching though (see second image). 3.4 is a brick wall, can't seem to hit it.

Popped the IHS, temps improved dramatically (10-12C load decrease)

Temps in Windows and in BIOS have always been different with me as well. BIOS is always higher than Windows is for some reason. I wonder which one is actually right...Thts because in your bios the CPU does not idle, like it does in windows. The OS provides a function (cant remember the name) tht makes the CPU idle when it is not being used, hence the lower temps. Hopefully someone can provide the proper name for wht im talking abt

From the recent results in this thread, you can tell tht it is winter time in a lot of places! I remember when this thread first started tht there wernt not many peeps with SS over 3.3Ghz on air/water but now it has become quite common :p: . If it gets real cold here in Cyprus, which is a big if, the lowest i think i can hope for is arnd 2-3C I will take my case outside and push some numbers.

All the results are making my chip feel inferior, LOL :D

Yeah No problem. I use this and it gives me 2mm more clearance than the stock solution. http://www.koolance.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=29_46&products_id=86&osCsid=38711f60d6a04d1dc33884978641f369

The clearflex is just as good and much cheaper.

The 12 pump is a good one, but I prefer ac pumps and a relay. A lot of pumps out there...Make a solid investment .. is my advice. Iwaki is my first choice every time. And I personally use a pressure rated md30 japanese motor.

I've used Danger Den on all my builds for the last 2 1/2 years. I went back to my Maze3 for some retro action!

Another note... the full body x1800 cooler won't do much better than a gpu block and some ramsinks. If budget is not a concern then go for it. Personal experience is I don't keep my video cards long at least not on water there whole life. So, the fullbody coolers I bought for my 6800's were just useless paperweights to the tune of $240 until I sold them months later.

What th f#%$ is going on here :(
Apart from everything i tried the following...
a) 11x273 with 166div -> OCCT stable ;)
b) 10x300 with 166div -> not stable :(

So ive looked up the HTT since i left it on auto (tried 3 before), 1092 on a) and 900 on b), vcore was 1,45v in both cases, nothing chaged except multi and htt of course. SO first you will think its the ram, so i tested with winmemtest and aborted it by myself after 600%. So whats going on is th Expert not able to do 300 htt ? What would you guys recommend me ?
My other Hardware is, Opteron 148, X1800XT, 600w Powerstream, X-Fi and 2x160 Hitachi Sata2 @ RAid 0. I would appreciate your help :)

It all depends on how fast the fan is running and what TIM you are using surely (assuming you got a good seating when you mounted it!).

I have the fan on a constant 2000rpm with AS5, and with 1.45V it idles at about 35 to 38 depending on room temp. Load goes up into the lower 50's. My case cooling is pretty crappy as well (single 120mm exhaust @ 5V, and PSU 80mm) because I like my rig quiet :)

this is so strange. the opty 150 i have overclocks EXACTLY the same in my board as the prior SD 3700+ I had. It must be my board (needs high voltage (the same voltage) and same max clockage).

Anyone ever heard of this on dfi nf4?

Maybe I should disconnect 1 or 2 of the power connectors, ha.

cajce 0546 BPMW not real good for oc'ing, but would be a good chip for running 24/7. It would do a 32m @ 1.456 at 2972mhz, and a 3005mhz 32m @ 1.55v. Anything more was a no go even with more v. up to 1.66 true. BUT, it had a 57 Tcase and the temp stayed about 11 to 13c on my board. That is about 6c to 8c lower than the other ones which were 63 and 65 Tcasemax chips.

After wondering about this i tried 11x271 again and result was not stable, failed stresscpu after a minute or so (tested everything with it since it shows errors after 5 mins when prime takes 1,5 hours).
Question: Is this rig making fun of me or what ?!? What can i do now ? Is one component faulty ? Ram seems fine since it can do 1000% win memtest, cpu i don`t really know but a few mhz less it`s stable even if u test it twice :D

So you have problems with yours as well I see. Do you accept being OCCT stable as truely being stable...so far I have found this to be atleast. I haven't had any problems during game play for hours on end atleast.

Well i´m sorry but my cpu pass OCCTool but it freezes at 3d aplications,i have to lower 5 mhz the htt to br truely stable.

I can get this 146 opteron delivered for £145 brand new retail stepping is this Cacje 0546bpmw

Man, I wonder what the deal is with the complete lack of voltage scaling? What is changing in the MFG process? My opty hits 2.8ghz 24/7 stable with 1.4V, takes 1.45V for 2.9, and NOTHING makes it stable beyond 2950. Tried 1.6 just to try, but 3gig was a no go and didn't feel like frying my pretty descent O/C chip.

It's a little better than my 148 CABYE 0528GPMW (P95 12+ hours @ 2950). I might pull the IHS's off to maybe get a more out of them next time I tear down the machines for maint.

It's on a DFI Ultra-D. Idle/Load reads 36c / 48c in ITESG. I tried up to 1.6225 vcore (1.475*110%) in bios and it didn't help to break 3G... just raised temps into the 50's. I think I just need to pull off the IHS to reduce the load temp. I'll get that 8 MHz somehow, lol.

Most of the reports I've seen from folks who removed their IHS show some worthwhile gains from the reduction in load-temp. Have you tried higher than 1.525? Seems like you have a bit more cooling headroom if those are load temps.

Im sure ill be asking alot of questions shortly so i wont bother today...

Just wanted to say ' WOOT' im in the opty club :)

I have had this happen as well...and then all of a sudden it went back to normal...I cannot explain it. I am really thinking about popping the IHS off my Opty. Have been told many people experience extreme temp changes at full load...I hear the contact between them is very poor.

The ones in my sig. Ordered a new CPU waterblock, so I hope that helps even more. I have to RMA my GeiL chips because I overvolted them (im suprised they still work). Im the meantime I'm waiting for my OCZ Plat Rev. 2 set to arrive from newegg so I ship these GeiL back for RMA.

Its ppl like you that make ram soooo expensive, why the hell should you send ram for RMA when YOU overvolted them :rolleyes: :nono:

Because they weren't hitting their garunteed speeds of DDR600 with any of the suggested voltages. Once I gave em 3.1, guess what, DD600. People like me that make ram expensive??? I could remember 2 years back how much memory cost then, compared to then the cost for memory now is dirt cheap. If Newegg didnt want to lose money on RMA's because of "people like me" then they shouldnt offer them!!! Im gonna leave it at this, but I gotta be honest with you, your comment made me grit my teeth a little.

I am in need of some dire help with my Opty. I can't get any overclock at all to Prime what so ever...everything fails within 1 minute of Prime. I mean everything. I have tried all kinds of voltage at 300x10.0 there is. It is OCCT stable at v1.475. I don't understand this. Can something runnning in the background cause Prime not to run properly...? I am of lose of ideas with this.

Play with multipliers and dividers. For some reason certain multies work better than the others. Same goes for dividers. (166 divider seems to work better than 200) I'm also noticing that Opties have sh*tty memory controllers.
