Those CAB1Es are fine. Mine will run 3.1GHz on stock voltage and TCCD ram. However I am currently using BH5 and I have bumped the Vcore a little to address the memory controller issue and have gotten to 3.2GHz. I would like to go higher but I would hate to fry this proc.

your blend test is not valid. only 1 test passed in 20minutes
you must use less ram because prime used your swap. that's the reason you have only 37° "load" with your freezer 64 pro :p:

Oh wow all these 144's killing me. I got a 146 because I had read they overclocked well.

I'm @ 2.9GHz with 1.5v not prime stable. Had it running for 7 hours then it quit.
Could be a memory issue, but my ram is memtest stable.

I changed my TRP from 2 to 3 and that made things more stable so my prime run of 7 mins changed to 7 hours. Now I'm running a cas 2.5 to 3 and I will see how long it ran once I get home tonight. I'm at school studying on my laptop. :(

I want to hit 3GHz~!!!! I have a CAB2E 0546 UPMW on a DFI Lanparty UT NF4 Ultra-D.

Hopefully I can get things stable at 2.9GHz, then I will try for 3GHz. Any others think my baby can to 3GHz?

My temps are a bit off. I was using the stock heatsink/fan, not the heatpipe one, but the crappy one, so I went out and got an XP-90C since I already had a 92mm panaflo medium at home. Now my temps with 1.5vcore gives me about 52degrees celcius full load.

I think I should try reseating the heatsink.

I've read that just adding a dab of thermal paste in the middle does it for these AMD64 processors, but does it really?

How do you guys do it?

I think my temps are too high.

Comments? :)

I just got my chip from a fellow forum member and was noticing something funny.

2700mhz - 300x9 - ram @ 1T 5:6 divider-246mhz 8-4-4-3 - passes pi, fails prime in mins.

2700 - 300x9 - ram @ 2T 1:1 - 300mhz - 8-4-4-3 been priming the past hour or so.

WOW, 1t is certainly crazy on the ram that it wouldnt be stable at 246 1T but 300 2T is more stable (so far)

CAB2E 0540FPMW

Also guys, i might get a DFI LANPARTY UT NF4-D from a trade and wondering if this is the same board (performance wise) to a Ultra D? I want to give my opty what it needs and 333mhz =) I cant do that with my Asus or Abit board. Im sure this chip will do it, but the person i got it from had it on a Ultra D. Would this be a good choice? I want something that is known to do over 330fsb...and i see everyone in this thread that has a opty runs on ultra d's.

What stepping is the Opty144? You may be at the CPU limit. You may also want to try a different divider. The 5:6 isn't so friendly to me. SOmething to do with the mem controller perhaps?

my opty is CAB2E 0540FPMW. This chip was at 3ghz on a Ultra-D, which is what it was ran at before me. I know its able to hit at least 2.8.

All reviews i read about this asus board, put its max FSB at 305-306.

Have you tried ricky tweak? The acpi multidriver wil get idle temp up and load wil be about the same as idle temp using that driver. It helped me getting from 330 to 353 which is enough :D Rightclick the acpi uniprocessor (device manager, computer) thats in use now, properties, update driver, choose driver yourself option and pick acpi multi.

If you are using XP and you want to switch back to uni you have to use the "use previous driver option". In win 2000 you can do the same as above but choose the uni driver again (again NOT in XP! the uni wont show up).

I prefer this over priming/raising HTT.

This is me max with uni driver:

Wow, that's a big jump! I have to admit i'd completely forgotten about the coldbug kicking in at higher fsb. Will give this a go when i have a spare evening. Btw, does the tweak kick in straight after posting has finished, or does it only start once fully into windows?

Holy mackeral!

I have been away for a few and I can't believe how much AMD Opterons have improved in stepping and performance overhead! 3200Mhz is simply outstanding!

I remember people posting that AMD cores didn't have anything left beyond 3Ghz a few months back when the duo's made there introductions. Now look.... 3200mhz :slobber: That must be stepping into core 2 territory no?

Anyways, nice to see these numbers! - I might invest in just one more chip if the stepping proves consistent :)

hey ive had a 148 for awhile, and ive been having probems getting it to clock well, as it sits in my sig( 264X11 1.475 volts) im really stable. if i drop to a 10 or 9x multy i can hit 290fsb on this mobo( i think thats all it has to give, tops out at 300, it was cheap)

currently i am hitting a mear 40*c at prime load for a hours, BUT if i bump my FSB up even 2 mhz, i cant prime for more the 5mintues....

im content with this chip doing 2.9 stable and under 1.5volts, but id really love to see something over 3 (i know im maxed by 290X11 cause of mobo) but id be happy with 272X11,and im cool wiht upping the volts as well, just not sure if itll help much.

ive got my HTT withen stable settings for this board and my ram is aslo stable up to 240 mhz, runing a 166 div to keep me under....

can anyone give me some pointers? feel free to PM me help as to not clutter this thread of holy optys :P much thanks for anyhelp!

i love seeing what these 165 etc.. can do under water and phase, those are jsut plain out killer clooks!!!

I'm pretty sure my an8 ultra reports voltages slightly higher than they really are. This is 24/7 speed btw - I there's a brick wall at roughly ~2950 where more voltage just doesn't help.



hey ive had a 148 for awhile, and ive been having probems getting it to clock well, as it sits in my sig( 264X11 1.475 volts) im really stable. if i drop to a 10 or 9x multy i can hit 290fsb on this mobo( i think thats all it has to give, tops out at 300, it was cheap)

I have exactly the same problem, I can't push fsb mhz higher than ~267 without failing prime within minutes. I'd really like to see something over ~3ghz but I don't think it's going to happen with reasonable aircooling volts. I think with a nice WC setup you could boost core volts up to ~1.65 and see some action with these chips.

It seems like we're limited by die heat right now, the CPU sensor on my board never hits anything higher than ~42/43'C but with cpu volts >1.55 I hit coretemp > tmaxcase on the CPU pretty quickly and then start to fail prime (ie: it's great for ~2-3 minutes until my cooling can't keep up). BTW, what stepping is your 148?

saber63
09-14-2006, 04:36 PM
yeah im running at 263*11 its prime stable for days :P

and im only at 1.5 bios, which reads 1.47ish in speadfan, so im getting aroun 37-40*c while priming.

my stepings are in my sig :P but if you cant see them..... cab2e 0546bpmw

*shrug* im thinking of getting water onto this bad boy, as im getting a lanparty board soon *woot* on i pulled the IHS off one day cause i was really board :P i saw a 5* drop while priming, of course this was when i had a :banana::banana::banana::banana:tttyyyyy heat sink, at 250*11 with 1.45 volts itd hit 45*c!!!

im also going to be getting a athlon 3700+ so ill be able to compare the chips, should be fun!

Does 2x512MB ram sticks and 2x1GB ram sticks have somewhat the same stressing effect on the memory controller? Or does 2x1GB runs alot heavier?

In what way will this affect an overclock ?

As for myself, I have 4x512MB and this is just :mad: , got 2x512MB out of my system and it runs alot better, overclocks better for the cpu and the ram. Though this is nothing new, my question is, is it smart to sell this 4 sticks and get myself 2x1GB sticks ?

hmm I've been tweaking my chip on and off for almost a year. You know the game, you think you're satisfied with your current setup then you come on here and see some guy with a similar chip who runs much higher and feel bad and you're tempted to push the chip more!

I was running at many different settings for a while, my last one was 2.85ghz @ 1.376v, LDT bus was at 1.3v, chipset at 1.6.

I specifically ran lower chipset because mine kept on overheating. Now I come in here and see people running LDT bus at 1.4v and chipset at 1.7v.

Were you guys just doing it for benchies or do you run that 24/7 and plan to for a couple of years? I do notice however, running higher LDT's does wonders!! I'm priming again, 2.87ghz @ 1.37V w/ LDT bus at 1.4 volts.

Hi guys

Im thinking about updating my trusty 3200+ to a dual core model 'cos of Vista coming and Half-Life 2 will get multi core support along with Episode 2.

[rap mode] My rig is in tha sig, my homies [/rap mode]

I was thinking about Opteron 170 ( 2.0 GHz, 939 of course) since I can get it for pretty cheap (209€).

Currently my 3200+ is rock solid at 2.5 GHz (FSB:MEM - 1:1), but I would like to have the opteron at least at 2.5 GHz as well. Preferably above, of course.

You guys think this is a good idea?

No one here probably has this motherboard but I thought it was worth mentioning.

If you use the DFI NF4-DAGF, you have to use the August 2005 BIOS with it. Any later BIOS will cause it to shut down, when the computer is not being loded even at stock speeds with good temps. This is an opteron-specific issue because it never happened with my Venice. It occurs in both mobos.

I hope this helps someone who is having a similar problem.

Right now the specs in my sig are stable. I went for 2.85 GHz at 1.6v, and it failed dual prime at nine hours, so I clocked back down to 2.81. :(

Got another opty 185 last night & im overjoyed that i got a good one it seems.
Just finished dual Prime for 16 hours at 3003Mhz 1.29vCore.
Lets see how low i can get the Vcore before trying to find the max overclock.

Cant seem to register with imageshack it did not send to my Hotmail.co.uk address.

Any other good image hosting sites with same or better features ?

0613RPMW looks to be the best Opteron Dual core stepping.. i have only seen great scores from them... all easy over 3.0ghz with <-1.4v , but they are very very rare..you got lucky and got one.

Hey guys, I have a question, I didn't get an Opteron 165 for overclocking reasons, I just wanted to rebel against my cousin's comments about the X2 being superior to all other AMD64 chips, now I want to get a X1950XT soon, is 1.8GHz (3.12GHz effectivly) enough to fully utilize a GPU like that, and if not, what would be a good Clockspeed to bump the chip up to?

Okay, let me just make sure you realize what you're doing. Chips get tested in rigorous enviornments and let's say an Opteron 170 chip can't handle 2GHz with available error safe headroom, they will downclock it to an Opteron 165 speed and test it again in the same enviornemt, and if it passes, it is boxed up and shipped as an Opteron 165 chip. Overclocking get's rid of an error room that downclocking the chip provided, in other words, your chip will be more prown to fail. You will also shorten the lifespan of the chip, regardless of coolant, and no matter how "stable" the chip is, there's always tiny errors being processed each cycle that seem "unnoticable". Overclocking, on the other hand, gives you extra performance for less money, and it's a very addictive hobby. I'd say just be sure you're going to replace your chipset/CPU/RAM sets within 10 years and you'll probably be okay Overclocking. You may have known about everything I've told you, I just wanted to be sure you knew what you're doing to your chip. In response to your question, DO NOT just find the top speeds that people say and jack the clock speed up that high, take baby steps, up the clock speed 100MHz at a time and test it, then if it passes up it 100 more MHz, test it again, and when it fails to pass as "stable" bump it down 50MHz at a time till the chip can stabilize, that's the best way to OC it in my limited experience with Opteron Chips.

Just got my 144 yesterday... Pushed it to 325x9 so far, on stock Vcore (my DFI overvolts a bit)
BUT, i can run only 100MHz RAM divider stable, when i switch to 133, it won't even Boot. So now Im running my rams at 325MHz using 2.5-3-3-6 timings... But they can do 495/cl3-4-4-8. Is there any solution to use 133divider? Maybe some BIOS? I use 711 now. rig in sig :D
Thanks, and sorry for my crappy english. :rolleyes:

Im looking at getting a 180 to run and A8N32 but not sure about the 13 muilt. I know they are already clocked fairly high, as you can tell by the 2.4 ghz but does anyone think I should be aiming a little lower like a 170 or 175 and then OC?

Im sort of interested in stability too, but, hey, you gota try and turn chips up with a little OC'ing.

Got 4 X 512 3200XL corsair to plug in as well. Suggestions anyone..

It could actually. I thought it had a 13 multi, or I could be thinking of the 185.

My main concern is trying not to waste my 4 sticks of 3200XL so I want the E6 stepping. I have a 4600X2, and I was under the impression it would come with the E6 stepping, but, alas, it can come with an E4 or an E6 and, I, being the lucky guy I am, scored the E4 stepping. 3200XL is too good to waste and I was hoping the 180 or 185 would be able to put it to use.

Unless you can find out the complete stepping of the 0609, not really much to say. According to http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=96900

CCBWE 0550UPMW (Some are crappy actually) is 3g
CCB1E 0609FPAW is also 3g
CCBWE 0609FPAW is 'Unconfirmed precise averages, but seems to be 2.8-2.9'

So you could go with 0550 and get the some that are crappy (bad) or the 3g ones (good). Or you could go with 0609FPAW CCBWE (bad) or CCB1E (good) or something that may be worse or better...

If you give me $180 (US, NZ, Canadian whatever you choose just make sure it's not less then say US$130) I will be able to buy an Opty 165 and you can just buy a Opty 165 and be happy! You can even add it to you sig!!!

Good day, folks. If a few of you wouldn't mind assisting by way of a purchase recommendation, please view my post here: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?p=2189013#post2189013

Any info is greatly appreciated. Oh, can anyone explain to me how with all socket-939 Athlon's specs defining their HT @2000MHz, and all socket-939 Opteron's specs defining their HT @1000MHz, the two are supposed to be comparable, etc, with Opterons usually offering slightly higher performance, etc? I can only guess that their HT speeds are actually the same yet are listed differently for some reason. Its one of those OPty vs FX things that has been irritating the hell out of my analytical thought process. Thanks folks!

Nil Einne
05-14-2007, 12:46 AM
the HT is DDR so it's sometimes quoted as 2000mhz, sometimes as the more accurate 1000mhz (similar to the way DDR400 ram is sometimes said to be 400mhz). But both are the same. The next gen/K10 with AM2+ will have HyperTransport 3 which supports up to 2600mhz. I don't know what Barcelona etc will launch at.

HyperTransport 2 supports up to 1400mhz from what I can tell but AFAIK 1000mhz is the highest ever used by AMD.

BTW, it appears you've posted the wrong link. Either that or your trying something funny. Either way, I strongly recommend you change the link ASAP

lol, I saw this thread and didn't know it was dead for 2 years and thought "there is an active socket 939 club on XS still?!?"

My opty 180 is still powering one of my comps, very reliable! :)

I posted about my opteron 5 years ago in this thread...seems like a long time ago.
found this shot on my old hard drive from 2006, this is as fast as i ran it day-to-day, i could go to 3.5 but it wasn't stable.
loved that system. and yes it did kick the pants off intel back then.
today it runs at stock in a family computer.

Cooling? Very nice chip if that's water. What was the most you got out of it? Cold bug?

The MB is a Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe (official support for Opteron), but the RAM ...:confused:
I'll update this information and shall bench asap.
