hmm is it still worth ordering an oem 146 from monarch ?

The only peeps that would know the answer to that is Monarch. Good luck getting them to tell honestly though... unless you personally know someone inside their warehouse. :)

i called to see if they had any in stock .. and he is like are you looking for a special stepping .. i was like yeah i guess .. he said we dont have them .. but ordering a oem 146 .. maybe i could luck out


well im sure even the crappier ones still hit 2.7 which is better then my 2.6 winnie o/c

also will the opterons work with 2gb crucial ballistix

Hmmm, strange CPU's those Opterons.
I can complete SuperPi 32M at 3130MHz but trying 3150Mhz for SuperPi 1M is very close to the edge.

Sometimes it finishes, at other times it just bluescreens.

Anyone else found this?

Zeus, That is almost the exact same boat as me. I have a 0528 148 CABNE and it is 24hr prime stable at 3102, but I can only manage a SPi 1M @ 3150.

I am watercooled, but temps are around 55 at load. This is at 1.55v. Popping the IHS is tempting... I have loaded windows at 3200 and it would be grand to get that stable, but I think that is pie in the sky.

ok well .. i just ordered a 146 opty from monarch .. the guy said they had 7 in stock .. so we shall see what happens .. if i can hit 2.8 ill be happy and then sell off my winnie ..

should definitely be better then my winnie .. 1mb cache at least

Five or six times I've completed my highest oc on 32m and when I pull up paint and hit ctrl-v, reboot . Makes me want to cry. :(

Since i'm too much of a chicken to risk my opty with my cnsp 9500 which weighs a ton i wanted to see if even something as simple as this made a difference.
My load temps are now 48-50.. thats almost a 10C drop just by replacing the paste.. the ihs is still there protecting the core, insane. Don't know what they did during the manufacturing of these optys but placing those intergrated heatsinks sure was a shoddy job.

Not bad, I may have to do this. Just have to stick it back on nice. does anybody know what the black goop they stick it on with is?

I tried removing my 146 IHS and didn't do too well. Couldn't for the life of me get through the black gook with a razor blade without scaring myself. After much gentle cutting, I bent a few pins and decide to call it quits.

Might have to try again...any softening techniques for this stuff?

I bent a few pins and decide to call it quitsPut your chip on the plastic foamy square that it shipped in while working on it to prevent bent pins. The black silicon is not hard; most likely you were cutting into metal, which is understandably difficult!

Well guys I just put my 146 in from Ewiz(see sig), Got her naked right off the bat :slobber: . I didn't change a thing in my settings, but HTT & Multi and off she went at 3GHZ. I will be priming for a little while later tonight. Also a little OT... I found a cheap way of protecting your naked core from damage, I brought some cheap eyeglass foam nose pads from Walgreens took 2 cut them in half and made it like the old athlon XP's. When you tighten it down it makes perfect and even contact with the core.


Also Idle temps 27c/34c same as my 3000+ Venice :woot:
Will post screenshots later

OK, got my new chip today from Monarch. Its a CABYE 0536. I pulled my 3700+ SD and cleared CMOS and dropped it in. 2500 then 2800 (same as SD but stable at 1.40v insted of 1.52v). Tried 2900 but Windows blue screened. Bumped the voltage to 110% (1.50)... wow booted right in windows and look stable... will try 3000 soon and let you all know. :woot:

Make sure you are using a super thin blade, like the ones in my pic, got em at Walgreens in the shaving sections. I've done 5 or 6 chips so Im pretty quick at it now. Here are my initial results after about an hour of playing with settings. Gonna start tweaking on it now. Any suggestions?

Does anybody run those cpus with BIOS 510 or other? Im on 510-2ModFix because with 510 versions of Bioses I can normally reboot my dfi board, with any others my pc hangs for 45 sec or more when it's just about ready to halt and restart.

@Badge56, want to see results from you (got same stepping), Prime that cpu please, I can do 3010Mhz 1.63v, 32M Super Pi but Prime fails in ~3sec, now I run 3Ghz at 1.63v and it primes for ~5 sec :slap:, but in gaming and windows stable

So I assume Utility Blades (IE: From Home Depot....) are a bit too-much. That would make sense....

Is it easy to crush the core while trying to mount...say a XP-90? It sure does take a little force when mounting it with the IHS on, I'd hate to crush the core.

10-25-2005, 08:53 PM
I have a couple quick questions I hope you guys can help me out with.

1) How many people are running a 146 Opty on Phase (and what clocks)
2) Is anyone having problems running 1:1 with TCCD

Right now I am at default volts (1.36v) under phase at 1:1 at 3.1ghz 32m and prime stable. I am trying to see if I can take my ram and clocks a little higher but was looking for some ideas where to improve.

I found that my opty likes Max Async at 8ns and Read Preamble at 5ns. Has anyone else run into this? Also TRRD at 3. I have never run into this before. Thanks!

currently running 324x9 on my 146 on 1.55v. It's a CABYE 0536. MaxTCase says it's 59c, and it hits 56c every once in a while during prime. Oh well :P

I just got my 146 tonight, what's the MAX voltage someone would suggest under a Big Typhoon? Voltage/Clock/Heat characteristics vary quite a bit. Which stepping/week did you get? 0536 CABYE seems to taking over 1.6v without nearly as much heat. Unfortunately maybe not as much OC either. Eva2000 took his 0536 CABYE to 3.03ghz with 1.65v 32M stable.

That's pretty good, I would try 1.6 with the side panel off just to see if u can hit 3 gigs stable. So.. now that u got that, my cpu will be shipped out tomorrow right? ;)

Yeah....about that...I didn't plan on waiting so long to ship it (seriously, I didn't). I meant to ship it monday but I haven't been home (DBZ marathons @ friend's houses own me way too hard.)

ANYWAYS, I tightened my BT QUITE a bit more and It's not hitting over 52c now. 1.65v? On air? I'm a little worried to do that...but I ran 2.95ghz in 3dmarks on 1.55v with NO issues at all, I guess an extra 50mhz could be done with a tad more volts.

Hey.

Since often better steppings have had later vocabulary letters in the stepping I would chous the later one..

Try Xpmw..they was good before, but i have not seen screens on them with opteron yet. cabye is not the best it do about 3.0ghz with 1.7v(Air,most of users use air).

:D one little 32M Before Work :banana:


Thats good to see, I've got a 144 cabne on the way of 0540 batch. Nice to see they are still reaching 3ghz. Problem I have now it weather to keep and use the 144 cabne with it's 9x multiplier as I don't think my ram will reach much higher than 310htt speeds. I also have a 148 cabye which will do 3ghz at 1.65v 1:1 with my ram at 300htt.

My thinking is to sell the 144 and keep the 148 as it makes life easier with the 11x multiplier.

He thinks something was damaged during a bios reset. I asked him to back up his bios and send me a copy. Hopefully I'll get a copy tommorow. If it was a freak accident that did something to his CPU then we're out of luck. If his bios was corrupted ... still long odds on any miracles for the rest of us, but I'll keep you all posted.

OMG. I am such an idiot. My razor blades are so thin, two of them slipped out of the package together, lining up perfectly on top of each other, so my blade was double thick. That's why it was harder this time. Man, I thought I was hot stuff until that happened. At least I got the ihs off nicely.

Just because it wont do 3G at 1.4v doesnt mean its a bad cpu.... Slowly edge the volts up to 1.5ish and see waht you get.... 2.8 is a nice start.

2,8GHz at 1.425 was actually very good prior to the opteron era, remember?
For an opteron it isn't real good.

CABGE seem to be the worse it seems.

Just as I expected I got a CABYE 0536GPMW from Monarch. Right in line with what others are seeing on this CPU I'm pushing a lot of volts into it but the temps are low compared to the other Opties I've tested. 3Ghz seems like a good place to start. I hope it'll crack 3.1 on water.

Maybe I should have cancelled, but I can't say I'm at all dissapointed with this CPU. How could anyone complain about 3ghz, low temps even if the volts seem high compared to other weeks and steppings. It actually reminds me of some of the Opties showing up in Europe.

Alright, so I'm late in the game jumping into this fray. Where can I find a 144/146/148? I found some joker on eBay offering a 146, but I don't know that I'd trust him. None of the vendors where I work have any -- anyone know of anyone who has one (preferably a 146) that they are selling, new? Preferably retail?

Anyway, I can't believe the scores I'm seeing on your guys' rigs. I can't wait to try this thing out on my own -- whoop on my 3500+ a little bit.

Once I finally get my hands on one of these things, I'll start posting my results. If anyone knows where I can find one though, those results will come sooner!! :-P

My Opteron 148 has exactly the same codes as your Opteron 148 and your FX-57 (CABNE 0528 GPMW).

http://www.cons.org/cracauer/miss-cabne.png

I didn't play with it too much, except I know it does 2.9 GHz at stock volts (which appears to be 1.4 V).

Now I am unsure whether I make it a server chip and never overvolt it. I wouldn't like to overvolt and only reach 3.1 GHz. But what if I could reach 3.5?

Decisions, decisions...

I plan to try for higher, and haven't run prime or superpi yet at 2.9, but at 2.8 it passed occt stability test. This is a totally new board and cpu, so it's having other issues atm with the motherboard and ram compatibility. Also, so far i haven't been able to get this cpu past 41-42°C with prime or occt at 2.8... gonna stress it at 2.9 and see what happens.

Edit: it just failed the torture tests, i guess it needs another bump in vcore.

Max. bench speed so far is 3250MHz @ 1.64V , passes 3DMarks and Super PI 1M (didnt try higher yet) . No improvements from going to higher Vcore , probably cause it get too Hot :D ... with Vapo LS ... :slapass: Seems like a bad match for my VX4000 , that wont run over 260 @ 2.0-2-2-5 no matter what voltage i am providing , because of lame dividers . Only managed to get 25.98 super pi 1M , because of low mem. frequency , 232MHz @ 2.0-2-2-5 .... Damn mem. wont run next level of 270MHz ... :mad:

Awesome temps on my Opteron 146 CABYE 0540 FPBWHow does this compare to each of your Opteron 144 CABYE 0536 GPMWs? Lower volts but higher temps? I made it to 3ghz easy with my 146 CABYE 0536 GPMW but the volts beyond that scale up dramatically and the idle temps climb from the low 30s to the high 30s. Load temps in the mid 40s but I think I'll have to go to 1.7v if I'm going to get to 3.1ghz 32M stable. Only one of the 3 Opties I've tested made it to 3.1ghz 32m stable on water. Two of them came up a little short which I suspect will also be the fate of the 146 CABYE 0536 GPMW. How does my 59C MAxTCase rating compare with both your CABYE 0536 GPMWs?

I have a vapo LS and i am using it with my 148 CABYE 0536- Same bios as you, but i max out at 3355 superPI 1M stable. my cpu temp shows as 200+, is there a way to show the right cpu temp?

The temp in smart guardian is probably right, but SG can't display negative numbers, speedfan and mbm5 display sub zero temps in the correct format.

How does this compare to each of your Opteron 144 CABYE 0536 GPMWs? Lower volts but higher temps? I made it to 3ghz easy with my 146 CABYE 0536 GPMW but the volts beyond that scale up dramatically and the idle temps climb from the low 30s to the high 30s. Load temps in the mid 40s but I think I'll have to go to 1.7v if I'm going to get to 3.1ghz 32M stable. Only one of the 3 Opties I've tested made it to 3.1ghz 32m stable on water. Two of them came up a little short which I suspect will also be the fate of the 146 CABYE 0536 GPMW. How does my 59C MAxTCase rating compare with both your CABYE 0536 GPMWs?

hard to compare due to different rigs and cooling on cpus.. see in my sig 144s are using much better water cooling than 146 right now

Opteron 144 CABYE 0536 GPMW #1 maxtcase = 57C
Opteron 144 CABYE 0536 GPMW #2 maxtcase = 59C maxes 3024mhz at 1.68v 32M better clocker than #1 by 30-60mhz

Opteron 146 CABYE 0540 FPBW #1 maxtcase = 59C - currently testing
Opteron 146 CABYE 0540 FPBW #2 maxtcase = haven't tested yet

Anyone clocking those with Vapo LS ? I am just confused , my Opteron 146 (CABYE 0536GPMW) @ 3100MHz , with only 1.55V shows ... +7C loaded :eek: :confused: :stick:
Is it something wrong ? I just dont get it . Remounted evep. couple times and no improvements :( Are they realy THAT Hot ? :eek:

http://img461.imageshack.us/img461/8543/sp20047c0ro.gif

Max. bench speed so far is 3250MHz @ 1.64V , passes 3DMarks and Super PI 1M (didnt try higher yet) . No improvements from going to higher Vcore , probably cause it get too Hot :D ... with Vapo LS ... :slapass: Seems like a bad match for my VX4000 , that wont run over 260 @ 2.0-2-2-5 no matter what voltage i am providing , because of lame dividers . Only managed to get 25.98 super pi 1M , because of low mem. frequency , 232MHz @ 2.0-2-2-5 .... Damn mem. wont run next level of 270MHz ... :mad:

Yeah, i orded mine from ewiz too, i also got a CABYE, but i don't recall the rest since i didn't write it down. But i assume it's the from the same batch that eveyone has been been from ewiz. i was able to get into windows at 2.9, but have other issues with my motherboard, so i dunno the full potential just yet. at 2800 it's pretty stable, and i couldn't get the temps past 42°C with any cpu stress test utilities - so i don't think i am being limited by heat.

my results. I seem to be getting similar stuff as others for the 0530's. (copied it from another thread to put it in it's proper place here)

I'm testing a Opteron 146 0530GPMW from Monarch right now.

I'm thinking something might be wrong with my mobos temp sensor because it seems kind of low. With my Venice 3000, and this Opty146, I can't get near over 50c on load. I'm using an MSI Neo4 Platinum (latest bios), with an XP-90, and a medium speed Panaflo. Should I push my vcore to 1.65-1.7v?

Max tcase: 57c

Opteron 146
2800 @ 1.5v (33c idle, 42 load)

I've tried voltages up to 1.6 and it dosn't seem to get more than 2.83 on air.

CABYE is hit or miss, but CABNE is guaranteed to do 3.0Ghz, all 3 of mine did 3.0Ghz with less than 1.50v 17+hr prime stable. My best CABNE has MaxTcase of 67'C and wickedld9 is the new owner now (had already shipped it to him) :D I'm still playing with the 3rd one....MaxTcase only 63'C, the first day it needed 1.50v to do 3.0Ghz, after some burn-in I now can prime it at 3.0Ghz with only 1.45v :D :D

here is another one....this guys is on tt bigwater so probably same as high end air..........he's got another CPU with same stepping that needs less vcore than this one

If I personally had some better cooling myself, I would have kicked up the voltage even more, but as you can see, temperatures are starting to rocket, and I do not want to risk the longevity of the CPU. :rolleyes:

I've got a couple of weird stepping questions so I figure I'll toss them out.

First is Has anyone noticed that these are only even weeks, where are the odd weeks going? Mabye they make 940's one week and 939's the next or perhaps some are fx's?

other question is that everything thats xxMx is supposed to be chips from different batches cobbled together. Is that true, a myth, or doesn't apply to opterons?

The only XXaW's I've seen are the 0536VPAW cabbage oem's that some got from monarch but maybe I've missed something. My spaw was pretty sweet and rumor has it that aw is usually better, true or not?

Lastly what makes something a cabge vs an ne ye? I've heard that fourth letter means a different rev such as y is newer than g in alphabetical order. This doesn't seem to make sense since they are overlapping a lot of these weeks. Are they different production lines or different fabs?

A lot of questions but I figure somebody around here probably knows.

Thanks man! Question, what kind of voltage did you give it? Mine was at like 1.84v but I dont think it needed that much. The one thing I was surprised about is that it booted into windows at 3.5ghz and wouldnt even boot at 3.4ghz. I guess it just needed a little breaking in. LOL Next step is to get some spi runs at 3.6ghz +.

If you're under 50c at load, I wouldn't worry much.

ok heres my cabge(yeah i know)0536vpaw on massive volts, but decent temps. will bench @ 2850 ish if i set vcore to like 1.8 and temps never go above 52C. on air. so at least i can say one good thing about it. scores about 1000 points less than my 3800 x2 toledo in 3dmark05 at same speed, which i find a little strange because of the l2. nice maxTcase right? ive never seen one lower.

guys we've started receiving CABYE 0540FPBW CPUs....these bastards are all going over 3GHz ......some even better than CABNE 0530APMW chips i'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good dual core stepping as i ordered one yesterday :woot:

check this one out...prime stable at 1.42v 3GHz (image works when you click on it and then refresh the page ;) )

Glad to see I don't even have to post my results :) Already done for me hehehe :toast:

Haven't had a chance to muck around with mem yet, got the next 2days off though so will look into it then :)

Talk about low temps, this cpu is alot different from other Opteron 146s more vcore >1.6v usually seens pretty high 50s/60Cs temps but look at this

I was all the way up to 2.95GHz @ 1.55 x 1.120 (1.736V bios) - 1.69V according to smart guardian w/ load temps of about the same, but it wasn't 32m stable, but was 8m stable. dunno if i want to push it more.... i think i'm happy at 2.9 :)

Are there any e-stores that have any of these 144's or 146's in stock (CABNE or CABYE)? I've been searching all over and can only find a single 146 CABYE on eBay with a possibly unreliable seller!

Anywhere that I could possibly order about 3 144's or some 146's? Monarch is out of stock until end of November, eWiz doesn't have 939 100's ... any suggestions? Or do I just have to wait until, oh, December?

So after my neo-2 died on me, I am now running on my old abit av8 until I get it rma'd. I have installed a aquagate mini r120 instead of my zalman 7700. Now My temps are down about 10 to 15 degrees at load from the zalman, and I can OCCT at 3100mhz At just under 1.6v.

I'm still having alot of trouble with my ram timings getting superpi stable at this speed.
Here is a screenie of my occt 3100mhz.

Remember, the temp sensor on these av8's is at least 12 degrees to high on the cpu, so we are probably right under 50C loaded here.

Rich, there's this guy in Belgium, Computersmsa, that sells stuff on his forum.
Just got a 144 cabne from him and it's running 3ghz as I type.
He's a good guy he'll prolly help you out, if it wasn't for him I would have never gotten hold of a decent opteron.

Got a 146 CABYE 0536GPMW from ewiz the other day. Benched this morning. Running 100% stable @ 280x10 1.55v. Temps seem high 58-60C on a crappy water cooling setup. Might just be my nf3 Neo2 reporting wrong. Maybe IHS needs removal?

I've got a DFI NF4 SLI coming Mon so maybe some better results.

Idles at 37c Load in pic... stock cooler with AS3. I'm not sure if I need this much Vcore, tomorrow i'll bump it down till it becomes unstable and maybe see if I can get it 1:1. Lots of tweaking tomorrow as well.

Which do you guys think I'd see better performance out of? A slightly overclocked X2 3800+, a 4000+ overclocked to at least 2.6, or an Opteron 144/146 overclocked to 2.9?

Here's my setup:
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe
2GB Ballistix Tracer PC4000 (512MB x 4 Dual Channel)
2 XFX 7800GT (SLI)
Chenbro Gaming Bomb II case
Silverstone Zeus 650W SLI-cert PSU
Lots and lots of air cooling

I have enough money for any of those three procs, plus enough for a very nice air cooler (I'm not doing watercooling just yet -- that's for later this year). Any suggestions????

Opteron no doubt. My 146 replaced a 3200 Winchester OCed to 2.5Ghz in another box and the 146 at 2.8 is crushing it.

However, I was like hmm wonder if I can do 280x10 1:1...

Thanks man! Question, what kind of voltage did you give it? Mine was at like 1.84v but I dont think it needed that much. The one thing I was surprised about is that it booted into windows at 3.5ghz and wouldnt even boot at 3.4ghz. I guess it just needed a little breaking in. LOL Next step is to get some spi runs at 3.6ghz +.
i try +- the same voltage but i also think 1,8v is the best to anchive good results
more than than stresses the chip
i also boot the windows at 3.5 and running 2 or 3 days at 3.4 but need to much vcore
i think if for testing is ok but 24/24h i have 3250 1.44 vcore and i do 25s pi 1M for the day :slobber:
i only run 1m superpi at 3500 , more i cant
do you take off your IHS? if yes what do you gain with that?
sorry my english :D

Right now I am testing ram timings and dividers. They are really tricky with this chip. Like for some reason I cant even boot using the 166 divider but I dont have any problems running at 3.4ghz with the 180 divider (ram at 304).

For everyday use I run 3.3ghz with the 180 divider at 1.4v so my ram runs at 300. I'll have some more super pi and prime shots at higher setting as soon as I find the right bios and divider.

System

Opteron 146 CABYE 0540 FPBW Corsair Hydrocool Water cooled

510W PC Powercooling SLI psu

WinXP Pro SP2 - very old install left over from DFI NF4 SLI-D i had (haven't bothered to do a fresh reinstall yet)
NF4 6.53WHQL chipset drivers


2x512MB Patriot PC3200XBL TCCD memory

Memtest86+ 1.55 from 510-2FIX bios

vcore - results

AUTO (1.38v) = 2900mhz 10x290mhz - standard 2 full loop passes error free

1.45v = 2950mhz 10x295mhz - 7 standard full loop passes error free

1.475v = 3000mhz 10x300mhz - 2 standard full loop passes error free then looped test #8 over night for 371 passes over 11hrs 08m 23s

Seems on Corsair Hydrocool, the 2nd Opteron 146 temperature wise is nearly same as 1st Opteron in terms of low temps. This 2nd cpu seems to be able to handle 0.025v - 0.050v less vcore for 3000mhz speeds.

Room ambient = 28.4C

I went on the assumption that this 2nd Opteron 146 is about same performance wise as 1st cpu so jumped straight into OCCT and looking good :)

Seems this cpu has maxtcase = 61C which is 2C higher than first 146 (59C).

oh and whats the cheapest of the good DFI boards... i might need to go to a stable clocking board. or learn to be happy with 2.9ghz.. one or the other.

No, you're not the only one noticing great results with Y's. ;)

Only question I have is where are you guys getting the CABYE 0540's?

I hate waiting, I'm probably the most impatient person ever. The only Opteron procs I can find anywhere are CABGE's now on eBay -- the CABYE 146 went for over $350 USD -- not what I wanna pay for that. How much more terrible are the CABGE's from the CABNE's and CABYE's?

Anyone selling their 144 CABNE yet? LOL!

Your's is becoming the most asked question right now. Do a little research, and you'll know more than anyone can probably put in one post.

I can tell you this though, a CABYE or CABNE isn't worth the $150 premium someone paid @ ebay, IMO. But we do live in a free economy. :)

opteron 146 cabye kind of sucks so far. I've gotten 2780 with 1.55 but it's not prime stable for any length of time even at 2700. I'm getting 50ish under loads so heat is becoming a problem.

Pretty disapointed so far but I guess I need to take some action on better cooling. I'm using the heatsink from my winchester 3200 since I lapped it pretty well, looks about the same as the stock one but maybe it's worse. Looks like I may have to hook the water back up but thats a pita and I was hoping for some air goodness. max tcase is 57c if that means anything.

Starting to wonder if this is better than my winchester, cache not withstanding.

I have same exact s*it, 146 CABYE 0536, but at least I can prime 2.7Ghz with 1.360v reported by CPU-Z. I use Thermaltake Venus 12 copper cooler, I lapped it + my opteron is ihsless. I also have a very good contact between cpu and cooler. Looks like I can prime up to 2.85GHz@1.568 but anything higher fails. I somehow can run super pi 32m at 3.003Mhz and super pi 1m at 3050Mhz

I also have max case temp 57C

Wonder if BigTyphoon Cooler would help :confused: the gap is to wide between stable prime and suicide screenie, I managed to to run 3200Mhz on suicide screenie.

My temps: Idle ~33C with 1.568v and 51C load with same voltage. With 1.600v ~35C idle and 54C load.

Anybody have any idea why cannot I prime at ~2.92 Ghz or more?
Hopefully burn-in will take effect and I'll get better cooling, still have to repay some $$ to parents :slapass:

Prime at 2700 1.36v is a long way from my situation. Looks like you got the better of the two chips. Maybe popping the lid would help. I was actually stable at 1.35 2400mhz so thats not bad. Your chips pretty darn hot being neked and hitting 50 load. I noticed when I went from 1.525 to 1.55 I jumped like 5c load so thats not a good thing. Maybe they jump in heat output after 1.55ish or it could be my sink became overloaded at that point.

Think I'll try the half-life2 burn in technique and see how that goes. Been mos since I played any games and I'm sure there are some guys who need to die under my opterown powa.....can't prime but im sure hl can probably play at 2750.

You should give it more volts, the newer batches don't run high with low volts like the first ones. My 144 cabne 0540 needs 1.65V to stabilize at 3.0ghz. At default voltage I could do games at 2.7ghz but wasnt stable in prime.
Oh and I took off the IHS and that helped a lot to stabilize the 3ghz clock.

This is kinda a suicide SS. Well not really.. but the voltage and cooling resulted in 60c load. I was like F-That and took it back down to 2.8ghz @ 52c load.

Better cooling and tweaking is still in order. I want 3ghz, but I couldn't get the system to boot at 10x300 and wasn't going to give it any more vcore with stock cooling lol.

It's a CABYE 0536GPMW, look 5 or 6 post above, I'll try with one stick of ram, higher read preamble don't help either :(

CABYE 0528:

Stock voltage runs up to 2.926 Ghz, then voltage jumps up quite a bit to get it stable. Runs stable in OCCT at 3.003 Ghz with 1.550v, but the PWM temps start hitting the mid 60s. Experience shows that the comp freezes at around 70C.

Since I don't want to add another fan to my watercooled setup to cool the PWM, and I want this to be stable during the summer heat (it gets hot here), I have downclocked it down to 2.904 Ghz at 1.450v, which seems to be stable. 6 hours on Prime so far at least. At this point, my memory should be able to run at 1:1, and the core temp is only about 41C.

I used the ram settings found in the TCCD at 600MHz thread on this board.
It's the first time in a long time that my comp is stable with prime or occt. I have to run the ram at 215Mhz and 2.5-3-3-6 with the DDR550 settings.

opteron 146 cabye kind of sucks so far. I've gotten 2780 with 1.55 but it's not prime stable for any length of time even at 2700. I'm getting 50ish under loads so heat is becoming a problem.

Pretty disapointed so far but I guess I need to take some action on better cooling. I'm using the heatsink from my winchester 3200 since I lapped it pretty well, looks about the same as the stock one but maybe it's worse. Looks like I may have to hook the water back up but thats a pita and I was hoping for some air goodness. max tcase is 57c if that means anything.

Starting to wonder if this is better than my winchester, cache not withstanding.

same chip.. I too seem to be stuck at 2700 so far.. 1.5v...I'm still hoping that my ram is what's holding me back.. (1gig buffalo 3700 that won't even run 3700.. corsair value won't run stable@2.7.. neither seems to want to post over 192mhz... w/ divider..heard dfi hates alot of ram.. maybe that was true. needed new ram anyway though.) 2x1gig ballistix should be here in a couple hours.. still waiting on new water tubing though
using stock cooler atm doesn't go much past 55c load..(with air conditioner 3 feet away)

It's pretty well known that dfi hates corsair value. I think the 2x1gig value uses uccc, or at least some does, I think the uccc works but the 512 value has something that it doesn't like.

Ballistix should be just fine though. Top notch stuff if you got the jack.

I think the issue I'm having is pretty much heat related. I can set it priming and watch the temps in mbm. It will be stable til I hit about 48-50 then it will croak. When it first starts it jumps from 33 to 42 or so. When I had water it would've gone to 42 or something and just stay there and the chip would probably be stable to much higher. I takes about 2 minutes to get 50 on the stock sinkthen an error. I think the stock sink just can't keep up.

I'm running 2600 at 1.5 now. Probably too much v since it can be stable at 2650 at 1.5 long as I dont prime.

One reached 2.85ghz on stock volts (1.4v) while the other reached 2.87ghz on stock volts Prime 95 stable 24 hours large FFT test. I can't really push it any further because I am getting load temps of about 48C with my SLK-948U :( . I'll have to get either a XP/SI-120 or watercooling in order to go higher. My spare CPU is on ebay, so if you want a CABNE here is your chance ;) .

and its up to $275 BTW how much did you pay :)

It's pretty well known that dfi hates corsair value. I think the 2x1gig value uses uccc, or at least some does, I think the uccc works but the 512 value has something that it doesn't like.

Ballistix should be just fine though. Top notch stuff if you got the jack.

well it came.. straight away perfectly stable 2700mhz 1:1.. but it seems I'm still stuck.. 2.7 is 100% stable at 1.5v but just tried 2800 at 1.6v crashes 32m pi right away... atm it's 38c idle at 2.8 so kinda doubt it's heat for me yet?..(was too lazy to reboot)

I heard the latest batch at CPUCITY was CABGE'S, jst like the new stock at OCUk will lilkely be. Though i'm not 100% sure.

I just can't see them being CABNE'S myself. :(

Nor can I, the possibility is for CABYEs which AFAIK are what the newest batches are. CABGE would be a disappointment, but compared to my Winchester that can hardly make it to 2.2GHz, it would hardly be a bad buy for £100 ;)

Monarch sold the 146 for only $200 when they first had them in stock, since the AMD price dropped on OCT 31 so if I were to swing $300 I might as well spend a little extra to go dual core opty :D :D

Looks like your going to do alright on your 146. I see a guy from Denmark has a poor 144 for $519 shipped.

What's a really good one worth? Almost makes me wonder if I can afford to keep mine.
