Just wait until i get better cooling. This thing is so temp limited.

OCCT failed at 3012 repeatedly. Temps went down < 1C and then it finally made it through. If temps go down like half a degree, i notice OCCT lasts about 5minutes longer. LOL.

More stuff

Lowered temp a degree and OCCT went at 3020

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.
Not really. ;)

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a392/5days/SuperPi1M22.jpg

Did up to 3110 with 1.525V before it started to crap out. :)

But for some reason, even with the 166 Divider @ 3110 I couldnt get a better time than my 2nd attempt (3042). I think I might have loosened Async a bit too much...

this is with watercooling.

Absolute: What happens when you feed that 146 more volts? I'm curious about how fast you hit a wall with that one on air, I seemed to hit a wall pretty quickly on my 148 after I moved off of stock volts.

It seems like some of these chips love volts and some don't.

I think I hit the wall with my 148, I can't get much past ~266 x11 without going to 1.625+. My temps are fine, even at 1.675V I don't peak at anything higher than 49C but I can't break 3.0ghz and stay even 1M stable for the life of me.

... just 9mhz more HT please! :stick:

Buddies you have to keep your Loadtemps under 38°C then the Chip will work excellent. Thats the only secret of good Ocing.
Nicest Loadtemps are under 36°C at any Opteron or other CPUs.

My chips won't do temps that low even with stock volts on my AC Freezer. With watercooling it wouldn't be that low, i would need watercooling *and* IHS removed, which is asking a lot.

36-38C load is pretty much where I don't get any more benefit bumping the volts up. I hit a sweet spot at 264x11 w/ 1.525V +20mV and ~32-36C load temps (depending on ambient).

I'm on air cooling so my options are restricted. I've already upgraded to a higher cfm fan on my big typhoon, cut a hole in the side of my case over the cpu and ducted the opening directly to the BT. It's somewhat hoopty, but it dropped my load temps from ~44-48C to ~32-36C (usually ~33 or so).

So I guess I'm running out of ideas, I could go to water cooling but I don't have spare cash to buy the parts. I did find a guy selling an old Swiftech extreme duty kit for $250, it includes a storm waterblock, but I'm hesitant to spend money until I've saved more.

@ Absolute_0: have you tried turning on C'n'Q ? It made a _huge_ difference in my temps, instead of idling at ~32C I idle at ~20C. That cuts the heat load inside the case considerably, it also lowers the heat dump from the PWM circuitry. I didn't think it would do as much as it does, I'm impressed. For budget OC on air it's a winner. edit: I just noticed, we have the same core/week/stepping, 2.9ghz is as far as I can get it to go on air, ihs is off and makes a nice keychain.

Oh you are Aircooler Buddie. That´s quiet different und more difficult thän with Water to get an Chip cool.
I have also been cooling an 0530APMW with Air but thats too hot for the DIE.
Water is better and easier to get an chip colder.
Without having an Coldbug.
And for now thats an DC 170 0550VPMW under DualPrime Custom FFTs in place at 2x3000Mhz and 1,424Vcore.
Ridicoulos Loadtemps. Never saw under water such high Temps at any CHip on my Board.

Heres the Screen DualPrime is still runnig.Ambient Roomtemp is around 19°C.

My ask.. i will try go for 3.2ghz then, what is the max Vcore don't shoot on the Opty for stability? if it don't keep at 1.5V, 1.55V.. 1.6V is a lot for this type of opteron?.. i got it since some hour only don't want burn it first day..

I'm running mine 24/7 with 1.58 Vcore on air, load temps are under 44C at all times. I think up to 1.60V is OK, if it took 1.625 to make it stable at 3.2ghz then I'd think that was OK too :D

Well on air I wouldn't go over 1.5-1.55. So that just might be your cpu's limit. Are you sure your ram is not limiting it? Might want to try a higher divider.

all work if i have Prime or OCCT instable ( 3 minute after the end of test).. i up the voltage a little bit no problem..Are you sure of your settings for your DDR?

I had to redo mine one time. Doing the 1m Spi ratio thread. 2400mhz was the best ratio and I was using CGen at 343x7. I tried to reboot and start from 342x7 and corrupted it. Just make sure you have a clone or copy that you can just "paste" back in after you format. BEFORE you try for corruption.
**edit** I think using CGen is safe, just don't try to boot like that.

I'm in similar situation here with a 148 opty and my G.Skill HZ. I popped the IHS off the opty and got it up to 3030 P95 stable with a divider, but my HZ sticks are hitting a wall at 270, so I'm capped at 11x270 1:1 until/unless I can tweak this config to get the HZ to catch up.You can always use a divider.

BTW, CACJE 0601 GPAW seems to be a very weak series. Mine can't get past 2880 even with 1.7v... It's going back to my reseller this afternoon, I can get my money back if I return it in less than 7 days :D

Have bought CACJE 0601 GPAW 146 this weekend.
Works at 2950MHz with Air cooling with 1,5V (primestable). 3000Mhz works
but not primestable. Isn't that impressive compared to some PMWs but "good
enough" for me. ;)

Well I've tried even with memory 120 divider. What I forgot is to relax MAL and RP, will try later, but don't think the Opteron is not able to manage MAL8 at ~200Mhz... What memory do you use? can you post all your config? Thanks :)

Using an MSI Neo 4-F with 2x512MB "old" Samsung DRAM.
Config as always:

HT Multi = 3
Core @ 1,5V (look at the picture)
NF4 = 1,55V (normal settings, don't do aggressive)
Bus = 295MHz
DRAM Clock = 133MHz -> runs then at 197MHz with 1T and CL3
Cooling is air (Artic Freezer 64 with FAN @ 5V -> look at the picture)

Anyway I've sent the chip to my reseller right now. I have the right to send it back in less than 7 days, I get the money back (in the shop, but it's my favourite shop :D)

Not even 2850 with 1.4-1.7v :( I will stay with my 165@2600 with 1.375v for a while

I'm running mine 24/7 with 1.58 Vcore on air, load temps are under 44C at all times. I think up to 1.60V is OK, if it took 1.625 to make it stable at 3.2ghz then I'd think that was OK too :DIs that a CACJE 0551 TPMW? I can't find any info on CACJE 0551 TPW8, so maybe that was a typo? Thanks! :)

Yeah yeah the block is coming in soon.

Hey you know that CABYE i got from you - that thing is HOT! I put it on air and gave it 1.6 volts and started SP2004 - jumped to 60c instantly!
And on the phase change, well it just about overloads the single stage. It does what i say in the sig, but when i give it 1.63 volts, loads at +14c!
It's a good chip to be sure, but man it's hot, it needs a better single stage to run on and it would fly.

As my Venice is total crap, and my opty is a unique 938 pin model, i saw this opty on e bay and would need soem expert thinking since I have totally no clue on how the CAB2E perform and especcialy the 2006 models.

my CAB2E 0546FPFW does 3050mhz @ 1.56v on air cooling. bench stabile. will boot into windows @ 3300mhz wasnt stable enough for screen shot. need some better cooling.

Futuremark doesn't say anything about stability, i was able to run 3dmark01 at 3.1 Ghz on the stock heatsink with one of my 146s, although it could barely prime at 3 Ghz cuz of heat.

Ok, got myself an Opteron 146 CACJE and wasnt hoping to achieve more than 2.7-2.8 outa this chip, from what i've seen posted here.

First attempt:

146 CACJE @ 2700.88 MHz / Air Cooled / Prime Stable
Mutliplier = x10
HTT = 270
Voltage @ 1.5 BIOS (Burning it in, might be possible to lower it)
CPU Temp = 31-33c IDLE
FSB = 270
RAM = 180

Update: Dropped CPU Voltage to 1.475 and upped HTT to 290

Currently running:

146 CACJE @ 2920.88 MHz / Air Cooled / Prime Stable
Mutliplier = x10
HTT = 290
Voltage @ 1.475 BIOS (Lowered from 1.5v)
CPU Temp = 33-34c IDLE / 40c Full Load
FSB = 292
RAM = 194

Seems like i have room to hit the magic 3ghz mark and possibly more :woot: Seems like 2006 is a good year ;)

P.S. New to the overclocking scene too, not bad for a first try eh? :)

Cooling is another big factor, but it's pretty obvious. Motherboard is much more important than most people realize. Motherboards like the MSI K8N Neo1 and Neo2 hold back overclocks. I should know, i've owned both. If you are REALLY and truly interested in overclocking, i seriously advise you to consider the DFI NF4 Ultra-D and nothing else.

You can push it to the limit, when you're using a DFI motherboard, thats a fact:)
Would my MSI Neo2 hold me back for about 100mhz(or more) ?

or is the difference in clock-speed rather small ? (at same vcore etc...)

3.1 on air is nice, but 32M doesn't speak as much as Prime, i can run a 32M over 50 Mhz past where prime fails. The main reason is that Prime loads me 2-3c higher than SP32M. Still a very nice chip though - especially for air and IHS still on!!

I need your advice about one thing: the first days i got my Opteron 150 i had no prblem set easy OC at different multiplicator all at 3.1Ghz or close to 3.1Ghz.. 310x10 (DDR1:1), 282x11, 262x12, settings stable during hours of Prime95, SP2004 and OCCT.. no problem at all, around 1.58-1.62V used..

Since some days a strange thing happend: first set a 300x9 crash during the Super Pi32M, when the same test at 260x12 pass.. Sometimes OCCT crash at 300x10 but pass at 310x10 same setting, same voltage.. so it's difficult stay stable in this conditions: I think it's the PSU, i have one on road but i ask me if it's really the problem or not.. What do you think my CPu have a problem? or i should look another thing..??

Most 146s can't reach 3 Ghz with 1.5vcore... many will reach 3.0 Ghz but it's still above average, and 3 Ghz with 1.5vcore is definitely above average.

Look at MaxxxRacer's CPU. CABYE 0540FPBW, one of the best steppings ever. Tops out at 2.9 Ghz with 1.5v on watercooling.

I thought 99% of opty146 cpu's could reach 3ghz @ 1.5vCore (with decent air/water cooling)

it seems i was wrong ;)

I thought a pretested one was a lot more expensive

Nope, it was cheaper than usual prices here.

Unfortunately one of my ram modules died :( no more clocking till I have new ram sorted.

Sure the fx is a hot one but i'd rather go buy a opteron. But besides this i wanna know the lowest temp anyone reached with a removed IHS + watercooling on a opteron 146. I've been as low as 14 celsius but the normal idle temperature is 19-21.

I know you are on air

But let me tell you the facts

Aircooling + 1.6v doesn't equal 32c load

therefore
your reported temps are wrong
You can call me a stupid immature idiot... everybody will agree with me... 32c on air with 1.6v, as a loaded temperature, implies either a bad read, or 12c ambients.

What i'm having a hard time believing is 32c load with 1.5v

In my screenshot i posted, i'm using 1.45v, i'm loading at 34c. My cooling is custom watercooling strapped tightly to a naked core.

Less voltage, far superior cooling, direct die contact, +2c? Doesn't make sense

(similar room temps)

That's all i have to say, enough arguing for now. We all know that these temp monitors are all way off.

LoL. okay. Serial number of this chip is "0067"
According to same tool you use, but on RDX, rather than nf4 DFI, max temp reported is 34c.
According to that serial #, it's close to the center of the wafer...I picked this cpu out of abt 400, looking for this low number. When the rest of my kit arrives, I'll put it under both water and phase, and we will see how it goes. I just think i got lucky, you can think what you want. I just thought I'd share.

what does your serial number end with? Maybe this would be info that could lend to confirmation or denail of said claim.

would you like me to put a probe next to die? what would you like? I can do any of this, so we can compare cpu's. I tihnk this is a good show as to what AMD is capable of. You seem to think it's abt more than that.
