And more to the point, how many millions of degrees is the core running at? 1.65V on air is harsh, man...

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

Holy cow that guy is nuts, who is gonna buy a Opteron 144 CABYE for $500? I don't know what he was smoking when he posted his ad.

I got my OEM Opteron 146 for $206 shipped I believe. Whoever wins will definately get their money's worth ;)

A San Diego core running at 2.8ghz with stock voltage has a TDP of 104watts, obviously more with higher voltage. I am sure that chip is burning up with his Zalman unless he has his PC outside in the snow.

Overclocked Power Output = Default Power Output * ( Overclocked Core Speed / Default Core Speed ) * ( Overclocked Voltage / Default Voltage )² gives a TDP of about 155W, assuming stock is 1.35v. That's...positively scary, way more than I was running back in the Mobile Barton days with a 2500+ at 2.75GHz on 2v under an SP-97 and a 92mm Tornado. That was significantly better cooling than a 7700, too...

EDIT - But he does live in Finland, and it is the end of October...:p:

Anyone want to sell me a CABNE or good CABYE they have going spare? :D


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 ;)

Yeah I meant CABYE, I just had CABNE on the brain. :)

10-31-2005, 02:25 PM
Unfortunately, now that the word is wide spread, anyone would be crazy not to sell their CABNE @ ebay now, seeing the prices they're getting. I have a hunch this one (http://cgi.ebay.com/AMD-Opteron-146-Socket-939-CPU-CABNE-0530APMW-OEM_W0QQitemZ6816845717QQcategoryZ80142QQssPageNam eZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) goes over $400. :eek:

Richdog
10-31-2005, 02:34 PM
Yeah i've seen (and laughed at) all of those. While I really want a good chip i'm not going to stoop to buying one at an outrageous price, I still remember when overclocking was all about value. :)

I'll just be a bit patient and do my best to use some contacts to try and get a decent sepping at retail price. Luckily I have a friend with long arms and he's doing his best to get one too so if he scores there's a good chance i'll score, lol.

Kinda makes you wish you got in early on the show though instead of arriving late and missing the best act. :)

Hi, long time not posting.
Well, i got an opty 144 CABYE 0536GPMW(max Tcase 59C) and put it on test. These are my initial results, cooled by a crappy TT Polo 735:

2,7Ghz @1.45v / 2,8Ghz @1.55v seems stable
2,9Ghz @1.65v only SuperPi 1M completed (max temp reaches 58C :( )

http://img307.imageshack.us/img307/1954/snap18od.jpg

I know is not the best but i'm happy after been remplaced my old Winnie :)
Eitherway that opty is having an excellent MemController, holding as much as 322Mhz 2,5-4-3-7 1T on quick benches.

I'm thinking on taking the IHS out or purchasing a TT Big typhoon. Would it help getting some extra speed and making it more stable?

Don't know what that dude is smoking....US$499 for a 144 ABYE?? :rolleyes: pfffff....I would pay that kind of price only if it's guaranteed to do 3.20Ghz prime stable on air with IHS on at 1.40v!! :lol:

Not bad BioPC, did you tried that 510-2FixMod BIOS? Go ahead and take that IHS, you'll get at least 5C temp drop at load and at least 20mhz headroom for spi1m. If take down IHS make sure you put a little more than always thermal compound on cpu such as artic silver 5. Don't know if Typhoon will help, you should test your pc in cold place, I'm taking my pc to garage today and temp outside is 7C so far and keeps dropping. I'll report my results back :D

Thanks, your ram settings helped me much on getting more stability. Ram settings MAL and RP does work nice on 8ns and 5.5ns over 600DDR.
I'll give a try on that 510-2Fix bios as well as many others when i get more time. 704-2BTA and 623-3 are the ones i tested.
Since i see you're using same level of cooler as mine, tell me if you get beter results after your testing ;)

Of course 32M Calc. SuperPI stable

Boy, that tref (1552 clocks in BIOS) gave me extra 200mb/s of bandwidth :woot: By those above settings I get best results with my TCC5, but they only do 2.5-3-3-5 up to ~240HTT :( When you get that opty stable optimize your timings, your sticks are not from this planet lol :toast:

EDIT: Sorry, it was actually 16C outside not 6 lol, but if went to 12C as I started my PC, actually my cpu primed just little better but not much, will test when temp get to around 0C outside.

My load temp were around 5C lower which almost nothing

Quick suicide screenie
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=39329&stc=1

My ram craps out at 304fsb with this opty, however, I was able to save above screenie without my PC crashing

So right now I'm not sure, but better cooler such a BigTyphoon would help a bit. Damn, this cpu is weird, primes only up to 2.85GHz but can hit ~3.3Ghz suicide screenie or even more :confused:

That was significantly better cooling than a 7700, too...

EDIT - But he does live in Finland, and it is the end of October...:p:
We all know that it's not possible to translate AMD's TDP into real world numbers. First of all, AMD stress them in a very hard way, more than Intel. But that's not all, since the introduction of K8 there has been some TDP's that are just to high and way off. You could think that the extra high numbers are a reservation for forthcoming faster models, but that's not always the case.

For instance, a 3000+ Oakville (2 GHz, 512 kb, 1.35 V) have TDP = 35 W, and a 3500+ Winchester (2.2 GHz, 512 kb, 1.4 V) have TDP = 67 W. 200 MHz and 0.05 V nearly doubles the TDP, WTF? This is just one example. Different sites have measured the power draw and showed that the 67 W figure is not only high like all AMD TDP's, but totally wrong. The mobiles often show the real TDP, but remember that even those are AMD numbers that cannot be reproduced.

Start with that Oakville and recalculate the TDP using 3500+D data >> TDP = 41.4 W. That's pretty low, and still supposedly higher than real world! Now compare to data from lostcircuits (http://www.lostcircuits.com/cpu/amd_venice/10.shtml) and SPCR (http://www.silentpcreview.com/article265-page3.html).

Lostciruits tells us that the 3500+D uses 31.6 W, and a 3800+E 30.8 W.
SPCR on the other hand says it uses 4 A on the 12 V 2 line, which equals 48 W, but that's including the PWM on the mobo which have an efficency of maybe 85% max. Anyway, it's hard to get beyond 40 W stock no matter how you look at it.

But, don't forget that there are three different types of CPU's out there.
Low power T64, regular K8 (including many A64, all S64, and some Opterons), and power hungry FX (and some Opterons, like CABNE). My example was about the regular ones.

A San Diego 2.8 GHz should need something like 60 - 70 W (http://www.lostcircuits.com/cpu/amd_fx57/16.shtml).

Who cares about TDP if it's nowhere close to real world numbers?

I have an X2 3800+ as you can see in the signature...Do you think it wolud be better if I get an Opteron (single or dual core) for gaming?...I`m happy with my X2 but I think can get sth more in OC and games with an Opteron...or am I wrong? I can sell my X2 and go for an opty for this money...or should I stay with my X2? I need the computer mostly for gameing...

Well I've now had in the last two weeks:

Opty 148 cabye from Komplett - does 3.0ghz with 1.65v - sold already

Opty 146 cabge from cpu city - does 2.8Ghz with 1.6v - sold already

(another) Opty 148 cabye from Komplett - does 3.0ghz with 1.6v

Opty 144 cabne from computersmsa - does 3.0ghz with 1.6v - sold already

So I've just got a single 148 3Ghz left now, but after seeing the new 146 batches seem to be cabye I have ordered today:

Opty 146 - from Scan - already in stock, and a 146 from Komplett - in stock at supplier, wait 5 days. Plan is to hope I get a 3Ghz capable 146 out of those two, then sell the other 146 and the 148 and make some cash back.

Also, most of you guys are OCing these with the DFI boards ... I currently have the A8N-SLI Deluxe ... would it be worthwhile to switch over to the DFI LanParty SLI-DR board? I have 2 780GT's so I need an SLI board. I was checking out the ABit Fatal1ty SLI board, but that's a little pricey and I'm not an a ABit fan. Should I spend the extra $140 and get a DFI SLI board? Any opinions on that in regards to overclocking the Opteron?

CPUZ is NOT a WR. The WR is at 3667mhz 2m AFAIK. Whats your max pi speed?

CPUZ isn't a world record? Yes it is, read the thread.
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59753

Super Pi can have its own world records, but those are measured by the time... so the best SP1M time is the SP1M record. Don't say the WR has to be a clockspeed backed by a SP time, because then you complicated it and eventually you'll have WR subdivided into so many categories that it won't be anything special.

Yo, at -65° it would be a great thing, normal coldbug like FX57 have, but I can't do anything @ -70° (loaded9 over 3100MHz so it is a damned coldbug.

The SuperPI @ 3300MHz was done with a temp of ~-50° but only running CPU Burn-In.

For all you know I could agree with you on the subject of Suicide Shots being pointless. What I don't agree with is how you go about making your point. I don't have a problem with your opinion, everyone is entitled to one and trust me you've made yours very clear. But why do you feel the need to put your 2 cents in every time you see something you don't like? I can understand it and tolerate it to a point, but no twhen that point becomes you calling other people's accomplishments pathetic. Grow up just a little bit man and you might see who the real pathetic one is here.

Nobody "thinks" this thread has much info about S940, especially not since S939 Opterons become popular. Still I think the name is to unprecise, it's all about one core, "Venus". For some reason people found out that an OC thread should be named with the core name for different A64's, like Winchester, San Diego, so it would be more easy to find it. It should be the same for this one. I mean, we're talking about the oldest K8, with B, C, D, E revisions, one or two cores, 100, 200, 800, EE, HE, 1400 - 2800 MHz. It's not like this will be the one and only OC friendly Opteron.

I'll ask you instead, what's wrong with "Venus"? Why is it suddently not obvious to use the core name? Err, not much to argue about, but I'm still curious.

Anyway, it's a great thread! I hope I soon can join in with my CABNE (if it ever shows up). :toast:

Most likely it is not called the Venus thread for the same reason that when the 754's came out it wasn't called the clawhammer thread. It was called the 64 thread because it was the only one. Sure there is a 940 opty but the Venus is the only 939 core right now.

Besides, what's in a name?

That's what I'm talking about, even a guy like dinos22 missed the Denmark thread. He's probably not the only one.

It's not like the first S754 A64, because there are already two cores, even though Denmark showed up a little later, but we knew it was there from the beginning.

Hmm, this does not look as a good job, I lapped the core, ihs is taken off. I had expierience with sanding before so mine looks much better, looks like a small mirror. Either you sanded too fast or used low-grit sand paper. 2000 grit is almost like a piece of paper and it should be sanded wet to minimize scratches.

weird my Swiftech G4 Storm water cooling must be messed up as it's getting higher temps with the 1st 146 opteron i have which was cooler on Hydrocool 200

both rigs in same room with same cpu tested

3000mhz at 1.568v on Hydrocool
load temp = 47-50C

3000mhz at 1.568v on Swiftech G4 storm
load temp = 54-58C

I think for my G4s probably better for LGA775 like with my 3.4E@4.2ghz /DFI 875P-T with Cathar G4 storm (rig i'm typing from in same room as AMD64 rigs) - 29-31C idle and 39-44C load

so i installed my 2nd Hydrocool 200EX replacing G4 Storm and temps are back to lower ones http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?p=24196#post24196

And yes it's doing better than my other Hydrocool rig and G4 Storm water cooling cpu now does OCCT @3000mhz at 1.552v instead of 1.568v on other Hydrocool rig. On G4 Storm needed 1.62v (yeah something is wrong there heh)

I've got mine at 2700 1.52 for now. I know it's not very impressive but I figured I'd post if for those of us not hitting 3ghz at 1.4v. This is on stock sink and it's prime stable for 7 minutes at least so it's fairly stable. I killed it cuz temps were getting to 48c. I'm sure it could probably run longer with better cooling but I don't want temps too high.

The first night I got it I put it on occt at like 2770 and went to bed. After 30min it put up the success screen but continued testing all night. When I woke up it had been running at 50c all night. It's a tribute to the chip that it came through ok but I don't want to get up to 50 anymore.

Doing quite nicely too (0540FPBW).
Just passed Super Pi 8mb at 3.00GHz (300x10) with 1.45v (in CPU-Z - 1.50V in BIOS) with a shoddy mount & generic thermal goo/paté (on 'non-extreme' water; high flow DDC, G4, BIP III, 1200RPM Papsts + DFI NF4 Ultra-D)


Edit - 32mb pass with slight voltage bump to 1.525 (BIOS - 1.488 in CPU-Z).

Doing 3.1Ghz at 1.6v so far on water. That'll do nicely :D

Now I've got 2 of the 148 cabye variety to sell and one of the 144 cabne also going spare. Time to make some cash back after a week of buying.

Sounds like someone is telling porkies to me? The only cab2e chips available so far we've seen are the 144's, all current 146's are coming cabye. And if it's booting with a 9x multiplier then it would seem it's a 144. You checked on the chip itself, or have a pic before you installed it?

If the highest multiplier in bios is a 9, you got a 144. Did it say 146 on IHS? Try the DFI 623 bios.

Straight in at 300x9 1.35v was perfectly stable, I'm currently trying to work through some issues with my Neo2 (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=78586) not handling the high HTTs before I go much higher than that. Had a POST at 333x9 (3GHz w00t!) but it crashed at DMI. This is all with a TDX running off a single BIX, Neo2 and GSkill LE.

I also appear to have lost my 1T/2T setting in BIOS, I'm on 1.37b so it should be unhidden but it isn't...just gonna go try the shift-F2 alt-F3 wizardry (it'd been so long I forgot how) and see if it's disappeared off to there, but TBH I'm a bit confused on that one. Where'd it go?

not handling the high HTTs before I go much higher than that. Had a POST at 333x9 (3GHz w00t!) but it crashed at DMI.

Is that immediately before Windows loads? You're running XP SP2 right?

In which case, TRY this:

Change the following in boot.ini

/noexecute=optin

to this

/execute

That will turn off DEP, which caused all sorts of problems with high HTT on my Venice 3000 and DFI Ultra D. For some people, it lifts a magic brick wall, for others it does nothing. Worth a try...

Brocon
11-02-2005, 04:13 AM
Jimbo, can I quickly ask what DEP is?

Jimbo Mahoney
11-02-2005, 04:17 AM
Jimbo, can I quickly ask what DEP is?

Dynamic Execution Prevention. It's some sort of additional virus-protection in the OS.

Is part of SP2, but can be turned off. It cannot be disabled in Windows x64.

I think it was a guy called Sharp from DFI forums that pinpointed it after I tried 2k, XP, XP SP1, XP SP2 and XP SP2 safe mode.

XP SP2 was the ONLY one where I couldn't get over 2.5 Ghz. In all the others, I could boot into Windows @ 2.9 Ghz. It would just lock before loading Windows when DEP was enabled.

Weird.

11-02-2005, 04:18 AM
Jimbo can you not just turn off DEP from the System Properties window or does that not have the same effect?

No, it's immediately before UBCD loads, and I'm running Win2k. Good info though, one to watch out for ;)

More info on the 1T/2T thing...it's actually just :banana::banana::banana::banana:ing vanished. 1.37b does indeed have the "secret" options enabled as default, so hitting the combo just turns off half the options. Grr. Anyone got any ideas?

Jimbo Mahoney
11-02-2005, 04:25 AM

Not the same.

You'll also notice if you do the boot.ini switch, the DEP stuff is TOTALLY greyed out in Windows.

If it has no effect, you can always change the switch back again, it's not a reinstall or anything. I leave it off all the time on my gaming rig now. It's just another variable for me I'd rather eliminate straight off the bat.

Jimbo Mahoney

Damn, OK. Good choice of OS for CPU overclocking though. I prefer it to XP in that respect, although I find XP better for gaming and benching '03 and '05.

I use 2k for initially clocking up the CPU and for benching '01.

Ghost is GREAT for this sort of thing - 5 mins and I'm booting another clean OS.

nearly all 146 CABYE 0540FPBW are hitting 3ghz at either low 1.42v vcore or 1.536-1.584v vcore

low vcore 3ghz ones don't seem to scale well with vcore past 3ghz, while the higher vcore 3ghz ones seem to scale a bit better

but all depends on cooling too!

both my 146 CABYE 0540FPBW are the 3ghz at 1.536v and 1.552v kind of cpus


Don't recall if you mentioned it earlier, but how high are yours booting at default voltage?
read http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=1594 :D

depending on psu AUTO vcore = 1.36v or 1.376v so really hard to say but 1st 146 auto vcore only 2800mhz 2nd 146 auto vcore 2900mhz

Not looking great for the CAB2E at initial glance... booted at 2.8ghz at 1.45v and got a reboot. Upped it to 1.5v and Super PI 1MB fails instantly.

I'll increase the voltage and see where I get stable at...

What kind of temps you getting?

i would agree. my 146 that hits 2.9ghz with 1.425v needs ~1.55v to almost stabilize at 3ghz

A shop here in Hong kong has 2 Opterons.
1. 144 CABNE
2. 146 CABYE
I don't know their manufactured date, but is it worth getting over my 4400+ X2?
Or should I just want for the dual core opteron?

Wait for M2 ;)

Otherwise go for 144, in the worst case you get a few more things to play with.

My problems seem to be rooted to the fact that *something* in my system isn't a big fan of the 9x multiplier: 8x275 2.5-3-3 1T is fine, 9x275 BSODs, but 8x320 (166 divider) is fine...gah. Being limited to 8x is going to limit my overclock majorly. Suggestions?

Have you tried using a high HTT with a 9x multi but a really low (or high depending on how you look at it) divider on the memory, so it's running down in the 200 Mhz region?

Good point, all you guys struggling should be using a tall memory divider, at least 150 or even 133 to completely rule out the memory for now. Also, don't forget to lower the HTT multi to 3 too. I don't like anything auto, I don't trust it. :nono:

Not thoroughly (had a brief go with 133 divider inamongst everything else), I'll have to give it a go. If that has no effect I'll move from the 1.3b6 1T BIOS to the 1.8 1T BIOS (I was on trats 1.37 before and that gave me the same problems). LDT has been on 3x throughout, I'm a bit wary of dropping it to 2.5x or 2x, is either one more advisable than the other?

EDIT:
Kameleon what clocks are you getting at what voltages?

I've not gone above 2700, on stock volts - the board has been holding me back way before that, and much over 300HTT and it also dies at the moment. Can't really find out how the CPU does until I solve the other problems, but let's just say that it's not my bottleneck. I wish I'd got one of the 146s now, despite the supposedly better memory controller on the CAB2E, it's not doing me much good. I'd rather have 10x. Might be having to go PCI-E and get a new board...

just wacked the voltage upto maximum and trying to keep the ram below 240fsb atm for 1t till i can find out the limit of the cpu, for benchies i runthe 9x multi because it allows me to run at 334x9 with the 400/266 divider and keep my timings of 2-2-2-5-1. When i can increase the cpu voltage more Ill look into the ram divider. But for some reason I cannot up my voltage in the bios above 1.55 and its a realy pain because the cpu is failing in benchmarks at 3100+ but i rekon with some more volts and water Ill be able to get much more out of it.

This CABYE went high 60's before I pulled the plug, 2.75@1.52v. Hotter than hell... Not a big fan of taking off the IHS just yet, not sure if I want to keep it.
