What CPU block do you have?

OCCT and SP 32M are very good tests, but in my worthless opinion, not until it can run SP2004 for eight hours is it "totally stable'. Very nice chip BTW.

I had to read this a few times to understand what you said. I thought you said that the test were worthless and I was going to say I do not agree with you. However, you said your opinion was worthless and I can not argue with that.

It might be worthless, but it's still mine. :D

My point is Small FFT Prime95 is hands down the best CPU stability test available.

OCCT and SPi (and S&M) are stop gap tests for the CPU and memory. I find them very useful in the process of finding top clocks quickly. It's not until a run of prime for 8+hrs does it verify "total stability".

But I've noticed the meaning of "total stability" is quite subjective here, lol.

I have the BigWater SE in a Aspire X-Qpack...I like it. It is not a major product like the "Storm" or "Maze" setups, but like the non-expert DFI boards- it does the job and was relatively inexpensive.

Originally was going to do this budget OC system with a Zalman CNPS-7000cu LED...but like the "Borged Cube" so much that I ended up parting out my Lian Li V1200, dual 246 system power workstation.

Testing my CAB2E 0546FPAW opty 146 from mwave right now, so far I have got it at 2.2GHz stock voltage, not much I know but I just started testing. It will probably go higher. I will post all my results. I also have a 146 on the way from NCIX, will test that when it gets here and decide which one I want to keep :)

I was just curious what kind of temps some other people have with opterons. I have an XP-90 heatsink. I just got my opty 146. Right now I am at 2.6ghz at almost stock volts. I know with my X2 and all my different venices ive had, my temps for idle/load varied by at least 5 or 6C. Like with my 3200 venice @ 2.5ghz, my idle was like 32C and load was like 38-39C.

Well, my temps with my opty and xp-90 are at 38C idle and about 40-41C load. I was just wondering, seems strange it only changes 1-3C from idle to load.

003
01-04-2006, 08:45 PM
the temps are probably being reported incorrectly. i have that problem as well

Fallengod
01-04-2006, 09:04 PM
Thats what I was thinking. I have no clue what my temps really are then. Im hoping my load temp is correct and idle is off heh.

Seems strange though, must be the motherboard not completely supporting my opteron maybe. Cause my venices and x2 ive used seemed to report the correct temps.

003
01-05-2006, 04:00 AM
I doubt either temps are correct, mine will jump from 38c to 33c with out going to anything in the middle, and hang around 28-29c idle, with a 900MHz overclock and 1.52v. The load temp is 44c, but I doubt thats the real temp. Anyway, my CAB2E 0546FPAW opty 146 seems to have hit it's limit at 2.9GHz. When I get home today I will go for the lowest voltage, and then I will post my results.

did you know that prime95 its weird with some CPUS , my winie for exemple get errors even runing default in prime95, i dont like prime cause its weird with some CPUs thats why i prefer OCCT or S&M or other one .

talking about temps , i have watercooling and my 148 runing 3ghz@1.40v the temps are 26/27c idle and 37/38 runing OCCT or other stress test.

Might have to get you guys to glance you eyes over my mem settings though... im sure the ram can run faster than it is !!!!

Also going back to temps... i dont trust mine atall... 38-40 idle... with in a nano second of starting prime it jumps to 50-55... when i stop prime its drops just as quick :)

Put same chip in friends expert board and cpu idles at 35 full load at about 40

Ive got a piccy with some ram timings a couple of pages back if ya wanna peek

I had the same temps are you did with my 146 cabne 0546 aswell at 2.9ghz but using 1.6v, i'm also using the Freezer 64 pro. Now after I removed the IHS and some burn in, its at 28c/38c and its stable at 1.55v now, so regardless how exact the readings are it dropped over 10c.

So you are without IHS on the Freezer 64 pro? sounds interesting.. perhabs I should try that. :toast: but I don't really trust my temps that much because the cooler is quite cool and I got a nice airflow after my opinion..

Yes it's useless IMO. If you have a copper base like the freezer has it will work great if you have it installed properly. Mine is facing up towards exhaust fans, one on top of case and at back, plus the psu is sucking it out too. It doesn't clip too tight either on my DFI when you take the IHS off, so no worries about crushing the core. I cut my damn fingers trying to cut it off though heh. Had to use a thin shaving razor but once i cut through it was easy to wiggle off with my finger.

Thx you very much for that information, how did you install it again afterwards? with the clips also? and there is still good contact? i would very much like a picture of your setup, if thats possible :)

Sorry I'm not able to do pics right now but i didn't modify the clips in any way. On the DFI board it either faces up or down based on the location of the retaining clip on the mobo. By unscrewing the clip on the heatsink its possible to turn it i believe but in my case it wasn't necessary. It clips down with about half the pressure it took with the IHS on, which is still enough. My temps are 38c load so it must be good contact, using AS5 with a thin layer applied with a credit card type plastic on the core.

You should take the 0540FPBW.
FPBW are the better clockers.

Hi, thanks for replys guys. I did a fast search thru this thread and found some informations;

0540 FPBW is good clocker but needs more volts than 0543 FPMW. FPBW is also running very hot, as i noticed from this thread. On the other side i found only two guys here that are having 0543 FPMW (alphaone is one) and so i can't be sure if i will be as lucky as them. Hmm, ...

Thanks, I see you've got your nicely chilled :D It's nice to know that my oc is heading in the right direction. I don't really know that much about mem timings and took some advice a few months ago (which was the last opportunity I had to dabble with the overclocking) which has brought the mem timings to where they are now. I have them running at 1T but was told that my ram should run at 2T but I also read that your system performance decreases when ram runs at 2T in conjunction with AMD 64's.

What kind of increments do you think I should push the fsb and voltage up and what are the max volts I can give the Opteron?

One other question, what graphics card did you have before the X1800XT and what kind of games do you play on it?

Viss
01-09-2006, 04:49 AM
No need for 2T. I do not like mine to go over 55 deg C load on air. Up to 1.65 or 1.7v just to have a look what it does should be fine, but i doubt you need that high for 3Ghz. Just go up in small steps and see how it scales while keeping eye on temps. Get mem on 150 divider to exclude mem while looking for max cpu.

Previous card was X850 and the only games i play are some older FPS.

Hey a ThermalTake Big Typhoon and you can.
I just fiished testing the Blue ORB II, not only is this baby inaudible it's 12cm fan blades remained motionless during start-up, meaning the dam thing has enough bulk to dissipate tremendous amounts of wattage. It keeps temps so low the fan doesn't have to spin for several seconds? Passive cooler?

It's the best aluminum/copper cooler I've ever used. Look for the review at Madshrimps soon.

I've had a go up at upping the fsb along with the voltage and also with the lowered mem divider but it failed Prime so I reverted back and just double checked what I'd done. I ran prime with the overclock I attached the screen shot for earlier and it was fine as was SuperPI, however the the FFTs during the torture test is brought the test to a halt in less than a second.

Is that my cpu crying out for more volts as I have tried to up slightly but it hasn't made any difference. Should I go back to the drawing board and start over?

Out of curiosity what are your ram timings? We have a similar system (except for the ram) but I'm having problems getting mine stable above 2.8 and I'm sure it must be something to do with the ram so I was going to have a look at that area in more detail although what I know about mem timings you could currently write on the back of a postage stamp :D

wow. how in hell yall keeping them chips so cool! i mean i have mine on water too, but 1.5v in smartGuardian gives me 43º load 38º idle at 290x10 with 2 6800GT's in the loop and a 120x2 rad.

what im saying is, i have seen (in the last 2 pages) a buncha guys at 2.9-3.1ghz with load temps of 31º??

how in the hell are you guys doing that? and at the same or more vcore. is it cuz im the only one with the hot running CABNE 0530??

im pretty sure now that once you start going over 45º load there is massively diminishing return on OC. once you can keep it below that you can get over 3ghz...

air coolings pretty good these days. my 148 280x10 slk948u w/tornado@3krpm gives me 45c load temps 1.48vcore. Same heatsink with the tornado at full blast holds it sub 50c load 270x11@1.6vcore for benching. a xp90c should hold better temps than this outdated slk948u too. I'd still put the slk948u/tornado against a xp or si120 with anything short of a 120mm delta tho. I can drop my load temps 280x11 1:1 1.6vcore down to 15c with -5c ambient temps ;).

If i were still watercooling i wouldnt run 2x vga cards and a a64 on the same rad if i wanted the best performace. Thats costing you some temps. unfortunatly im not really up on whats available anymore for rads and shrouds but dual 2x120mm rads were being used back in the axp days with r300 cards and chipset coolers. Maby i'll bust out my JPI v5 if im not doing as well as i want when i get my hands on x1900xt CF.

You would be better to run VGAs and CPUs on sperate loops and use atleast a Dual 120mm RAD on each loop with a good pump. And using a T-Line with a fillport instead of a RES would give you less restriction as well. Not sure if you could fit it all inside a case but would be really nice:D

see now i hear that. crazy thing is: its a v1000. i can barely get the rad on there! argh!

but i feel you with the T-line idea. cuz right now i wanna change out hte solution to make it a much higher % of water and well, its gonna be a :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana: as opposed to a t line for fill/bleed. hmmz

would a single 120mm BIX help or supn like that? that i can for sure fit in....

I am 95% sure it is the exact same batch(didn't write that down, I only looked at the batch for a split second), it's definitely the same exact stepping.

I think I'm gonna install my Zippy 500 in this machine ( it's my HTPC, so I have to quiet the fan though, I'll adjust the voltages when I have it open), to see if it's better than my powerstream420( I believe it will be, but I don't know if it will help).

Looks like you have a good chip there, mine did about 2.8 at stock vcore, I know I was priming for almost 4 hrs(i shut it down) 2830@1.45.

ok guys, small update, ran SP2004 a little longer

5+ hours, 2.95 Ghz with 1.40 volts, stock cooler cooled, normal ambient temps around 69F.

http://img356.imageshack.us/img356/2681/295ghz5hoursstockcool9gn.jpg

I really can't prime much higher, it gets too hot 54C when i increase the voltage by a notch. Did a screenshot at 3113 or so with 1.45 volts... not that much, i think it's just begging for more cooling :).

just bumped up the volts to 1.50, got off a SP1M at 3063 Mhz and this screenshot

Technically the one in the BIOS is wrong as well and i should use a DMM to get the right one. But everybody goes by the windows readings so i don't want to go way out of my way to deviate and confuse everyone.

I had a feeeling that was gonna happen considering all the press the CAB2E cold bug gets...

Like I said, mine is for HTPC, so quiet/good OC is a bit more important that all out OC, so 3G on QUIET air(TTBT) is pretty good!!

anyone in here have a msi neo4 platinum w/ a opty 148? cause i need some help. my opty can do 2.8ghz on stock volts using clockgen stable in windows. but when i set anything over 238 mhz it results in no posting. i can only manage 237 mhz for an overclock of 2.6 ghz. i know its not my rams either. my ocz gold edition can do 260 mhz fine.

I had this board a long time a go, remember this problem was related with initial bios versions.

Hi guys,

Well I got my OEM Opteron 146 the other day, worried as hell because I didnt know stepping but it was dirt cheap (like &#163;105 instead of &#163;150 retail) so im not too bothered.

Stepping
Cacje 0546 BPMW

Anyways im impressed so far, doing 2.9ghz 290x10, 1.54v (according to CPU-z/MBM).

Anyone know why CPU-z/MBM voltage so much lower than selected voltage in bios? (even bios shows it as being lower than what I select). It says 1.54 but I think its more like 1.5+

Dude, what is limiting me?? I have a cab2e 0540 FPMW. I had it stable 2.87gHz w/ 1.39 volts load temp 39*C(air) for 9 hours 10minutes on prime95(i stopped it myself).


Things that I have not touched since, are:
LDT: 1.30volts
chipset: 1.60volts
LDT/FSB freq. ratio: X 4.0
Dram: 2.8 volts
.....

Dram isn't really the limiting factor I would imagine...

But I can't get this stable above 2.90Ghz(10X multipliers). The highest I cranked the volts in the bios was 1.50volts, putting it at 2.93gHz, and it will fail prime after 20minutes or less even.

This is ridiculous because @ 2.87gHz, I was running stable w/1.39 on smartguardian and 1.425volts in the bios... I guess I can't judge it by that, but still, am I not stable because I need to crank up even more voltages on my cpu vid control????

help please!

Change your HTT multiplier to 3x. Also, what are the load temps?

Change your HTT multiplier to 3x. Also, what are the load temps?

Load temps are 39*C for 2.9Ghz and below... although it did get up to 41*C when it was at 2.94Ghz. Generally, load temps are looking ok.

HTT multiplier to 3x?!?!!?!!? you mean from (I'm currently on)10X=> 3X?? Or did you mean the ldt/fsb ratio(I'm currently on 4X)?

I'm assuming the second one of course, but I'll wait for response.

edit: I tried it, still no luck, maybe it's just my chip? I was able to boot and load fine up to 3020mhz's(could have taken it higher but just didn't), obviously though, I couldn't prime it at those speeds.

I wish I could prime this baby past 2.9ghz. Any other suggestions(as far as mobo settings go)?

You said load temps were 39C, now they are 49C? That's quite a difference. You are running proper dividers right.

I'm the one who had 39*C load temps, fraggy gets up to 48-50 with any kind of work on the cpu.
Incase you got us mixed up, haha, both of us have plain sigs, i'll try and get an avatar that stands out more.


My highest temps ever were 43*C. And even then, it just blinked at that temp for a sec. Is it common for the cpu voltage to fluctuate during idle? Mine goes from 1.39voltage to 1.40 back and forth while idling, kind of troubles me.

Oh, sorry, you can revoke my license to post at 7:30 AM... just trying to get a few posts in before going to class lol.

Well your temps are good, don't look at what it jumps to, just the overall average. CPU voltage almost always flucuates, so don't worry too much abou t that. I get stuff like 1.392 - 1.408 all the time, just minor fluctuations aren't a big deal.

What is bad are big fluctuations (like i used to get on my MSI K8N Neo2 Plati). It would jump around by almost .3 volts... not good for an OC.

Basically, other than just upping the cpu voltage, are there any other crucial factors that I should be aware of? My LDT voltages are at 1.3, my chipset is at 1.6v, I haven't touched them since, and of course my ldt/fsb ratio is x4.

Standard HTT is 5x 200Mhz = 1000.
You can overclock this ofcourse, but how far depends on your motherboard.
In my case i can get max. 1280, everything above that causes instability.
So for me to go higher than 256Mhz, i need to lower my HTT multiplier.

Yeah thanks, I ended up reading up on it on another forum. For whatever reason I've been ok by overclocking it way past 1100. But I went down to a 3X multiplier anyways. I think I'll call it quits on the extreme overclocking for a little while. Right now its running at 2.8ghz @ 1.36volts, prime stable for 8 hours and 24minutes and still going.

I've become obsessed with it lately, but I need to get back to school work and other work, haha. I am however, considering to purchase an opteron 170(I'd get the 165, but too hard to find right now).

My goal as usual is to get as high as I can, as "safe" and stable as possible. I say "safe" because I know that any overclocking is supposed to cut the lifespan of a cpu, but yeah, I try to keep the voltages below 1.6v, and I try to make the system stable so I can use it for whatever, extreme gaming or extreme program usage.

Just got a new one

Opteron 146

CABQE 0547 GPMW

Comp is in my dorm so no OCin yet, anyone heard of a CABQE?? I like 0547 GPMW because my 148 0547 GPMW does 3.1+ Ghz on water. So i'm hoping for good things.



Oh yes, and i got a replacement for my coldbugged 148. Thanks to Coop!

Opteron 148 CABYE 0543 FPMW 06xx batcher
My single stage is getting poor temps so right now i'm temp limited, but this chip has a lot of potential.

11x300 with 1.52 volts prime stable (kept going for over an hour before i stopped it), loading at +6C
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v729/absolute035/3.jpg

Suicide run, 1.63 volts, 3.62 Ghz, CPU was reading -12C at the time when i got the screenshot. Would easily go past 3.7 Ghz if i was idling below -20C i think

What air cooling? What load temps? How bad was the Vcore fluctuation?

Sry about all the questions, but i got 3 more of these incoming from the same place so probably same or similar stepping.

btw here's my 146

What air cooling? Zalman Pure Copper 80mm
What load temps? 50&#176; max.. (i found out recently that the cooler wasn't mounted properly...now 40~45&#176; max)


My vCore setting (in bios) is 1,450vCore
my Cpu is currently clocked @ 2,6 Ghz
my bios reports (hardware monitor) 1,4250vCore

but when I run Prime2004 (8 hours right now), my vCore is 1,375v average
(Asus pcProbe reports this voltage)

I hava a Zalman 400W APS ... and a ASUS K8V Deluxe..
someone said me, the voltage drops are due to the motherboard...

soon, i'll let repair my Msi neo2 platinum (nforce power)..
and i'll install a ThermalTake big typhoon...

(@ ebay, my cpu is reported to do 3ghz on air @ 1,5vcore max.. > so did I , 2,9 @ 1,475 vCore... some better cooling, ans i'll finish the job)

ladyback, saving up for phase change with a CAB2E stepping is not recommended. It will almost surely coldbug.

brechtvm, that CABQE of yours is looking better than before. If you can do 3 Ghz with your 50C load temps, then surely it will do 3.1 Ghz on watercooling. I'm gonnna hopefully get to testing mine out tonight.

01-28-2006, 09:54 PM
Ok, the dilemma for the hour....

I have finally recieved my first opteron 144 oem chip. Shortly followed by an opteron 148 oem chip. Now I have to decide which one to sell.

144 - CAB2E 0546UPMW
on temporary stock amd cooling, and stock volts, this guy is pretty stable at 285x9. I tempted fate by putting 1.55v on it on stock cooling, and it stayed below 45 C at load, sometimes idling below 30, pretty much stable at 325x9.

148 - CAB2E 0547GPMW
on temporary thermaltake venus 7+ cooling, I can run 290x10, 270x11, at 1.55 volts, but it spikes the temps up to nearly 60 degrees load, and never idles below 37.

I'm running a dfi ultra-d, and I'm gonna be running water cooling (2x120mm fan radiator), so the 148 may really shine after I take the heat away. It just really impressed me how low the 144 stays.

Also, I won't be going into phase change any time soon, just sticking with the water.

Which should I keep?

Absolute_0
01-28-2006, 10:07 PM
The 148 will sell for more but you gotta get some better results with it. Lower the temperatures somehow. Sounds like you have the heatsink seated wrong... i have the exact same stepping and mine runs fairly cool. Mine was however, VERY temp sensitive, but it's also a VERY good overclocker. Try to get the load temps down to 45C and it should do 3+ ghz easily.

Yes I would like to know the answer to that one also. My 148 0545 does 3102mhz (282x11) with no divider and bh5. Temps are in the teens and I have had it to +1c-+3c before.

Cold bug usually kicks in in the negatives with these CAB2E steppings. You'll notice it locking up at higher HTTs peeds prematurely. For example my CAB2E was able to clockgen past 300 HTT on watercooling. On my phase change i couldn't go past 260.

SP2004 now at 7+ minutes... EDIT 13 minutes :)
Load temp as you can see is 52C
http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/6152/285ghzstockcoolerandvolts2tb.jpg

Maybe 2.9 on stock volts and stock cooler? 3+ on good air...

EDIT

Looks like around 2.87 Ghz will be the max prime for stock volts and stock cooling. Once i get load temps down i'm sure it will fly. I'm gonna up volts to 1.4 and see how it compares with my Opteron 148 0547 GPMW, which was a kick ass chip.

EDIT
2.86 GHz stock cooler stock volts max (52C load)

I have a 170 0550 VPMW which will sit at stock volts at 2.8GHz using the stock AMD cooler...

Fantastic chip I thought; cant wait to get it under the Mach II GT.

So on Friday night I carefully put it under the Mach II GT only to find that my max stable clock was now 2.4GHz and anything beyond was seriously unstable or wouldnt boot up into Windows.

I thought I might have borked the mobo, but I took the Mach II GT off again tonight, put it back on the cheap and cheerful AMD HSF and bang, straight in and up to 2.7Ghz without breaking a sweat...

Anyone else had this problem or have any ideas as to whats wrong with mine under the Mach II GT.

Hey TEDY sorry i took 3 days to respond

I *could* do that, but load temps on this thing suck so much that it really won't go too far. I might be able to pull it off at 3.02 but who knows. 56C load temps are bad for stability :(. When i get real cooling and don't have a 20C delta between idle and load, then i'll do some real stability testing. Right now it's best to bench with because it can do short spurts at high speeds.

CABYE are most certainly some of the best all around markings to be had!

Hi All
My CABNE0545 is up to 2900MHz on 1.475v.I have a Machll GT.Is there anyway of knowing if it has a coldbug before putting under the Prommie(Also have a 3500 venice as well to try)
Ta for any inf

No real way to tell for sure unfortunately. My CABNE 0530APMW was fine under single stage though, so just have a go and see how yours does. :)

I have a 144 CAB2E 0546 that I got to 2.9ghz on some junky cooling. A better HSF and ram is on its way and I will try then as well. Might be able to get more with better cooling, plus the chip will have burned in by then. If anyone is looking for 144 CAB2E 0546 processors let me know...in a PM ;) I will keep you all updated once I get better cooling.

2.944ghz it was benched at, and I think it was primed for 2 hours at 2.87ghz, this was at 1.42 volts.

This pic is actually a several weeks old, so I forgot, I just wanted to post something, haha, I'm currently priming my system at 2.81ghz @ 1.36volts for 3 hours.

Stock voltage, stock cooling, 2.92 Ghz prime

clockgenned up from 2.8, it just kept going.
CABQE 0547GPMW

**primed for over an hour before i stopped it

if anyone has done better with that voltage/CPU temp, i'd like to see.


Here's some more

Ran OCCT @ 3012 Mhz with stock heatsink, 1.45 volts, 54C load the whole time

Mine did 2.92GHz on stock volts too. On air aswell, around 52C or so load.

But Prime95 Stable for over 5 and a half hours. Didnt try longer.

Sold it on OCAU though to someone using an Asus... :stick: and not a DFI... poor Opteron. :slapass:

CAB2E 0540FPMW 146.

That one is good but i think this one is better yet. I pulled off a 1M at 3072 pretty easily with 1.5 volts (enduring 50+ c load :( ) while your max was 3042 with 1.55v.

I have the same chip, same week too(cab2e week 40). I messed up my DFI board, its been acting up ever since I overclocked my ram and it wouldn't boot for like 15minutes(overloaded the capacitors I suppose).

It's a decent chip, I'm happy with it... I know everyone has different ambitions..of many I just wanted to run it the highest I could, as "safely" as possible(lowest voltage), for as long as possible.

I turned off the comp last night after over 4 hours of priming at 2.81ghz, about to go on a long distant trip for a few days, so I'm going to leave the comp on, we'll see if it can run 24 hours at least on stock volts..I have someone to monitor it for me every several hours, incase it fails while I'm gone, I'll post results.

PS. its so fun to play with this chip... my only problem is.. I actually want to use this as a daily machine...and every time I play with the volts to get up higher, I can't go back down, it always messes up, for example, I was once running at 2.86ghz primestable(9 hours) on 1.375 volts I believe(have to recheck my screenshot), then I played around to get it over 3.0ghz with higher volts, after that I couldn't even prime it back to 2.86ghz anymore at the same volts for even 30minutes before it failed!...thus I need another chip to play with, haha..and one to run stable.
