Well, I got tired of asking for ss of the Opteron 939 cpu's so I got my own ss 25 minutes after I got home from work. I did rip the box open, put it in the mb and cranked up the MHz. I am not the low volts burn kind of guy(not slant on those who are). I will only post if I have a pi ss. Here's 25 minutes worth of oc'ing. Ram is OCZ4800.

Very nice... what's teh cooling and ambient temps?

Also, the voltage is very low, how well does it respond to more voltage?

Off to a good start except for the temps. I'm on water and you can see my idle temp in the screenie. I'm hoping I just didn't mount the block quite right. I'll look at that before I start pushing on it. Tommorow morning I'll take another shot.

I used some old Hynix I had laying around. Keeping the memory low to make sure that doesn't hold up the OC party.

Sorry about the shakey image ... I guess I was a little excited.

MB went bad and will now only work with one ram in middle orange slot. Wouldn't do anything until I cleared it. Oh well, it didn't stop me. Here's a ss in single of pi 32m(don't know if it means anything running it without dc). They do run hot. The temp in ss is after it started down. 40c@1.4 and it scales big time. I was at 48@1.5 for the first ss. I thought I didn't have the hs seated right so I took it off. That is when the memory slot went bad.

Could't wait for tommorow. Re-mounted the water block but didn't see much improvement. But enough to try 3ghz run. Wonder if this CPU is a good candidate for IHS removal. Saw 51c pop up for a bit on the 32M run. Not good.

Later this week I'll try air and on the weekend I'll break out the Prommie for more testing ... if I haven't broken it by then. Lol.

Also need to figure out what the story is on the types of memory this thing will take.

My initial impressions of this CPU are very positive except for the temps. A bit of a "holy grail" for me to be at 3ghz on water. :woot:

yeah, mine runs pretty hot too.. just remounted the waterblock thinking i might have made a mistake, contact looked decent, though with a new install, load temps are around 1c lower.. it should drop over the next day or so.

also, CABNE 0530APMW seems to be the same exact code as everyone else with a s939 opteron so far. :toast:

I sold my x2, it didn't seem as much fun oc'ing it as a single core. I think they as great but not for me. These first(because they may end up like all the rest) 144's really clock but run hot. I can't believe they are just a sd core. I ran my sd3700 at 2900@1.6 and it was the alittle cooler then this at 1.4.

Very nice oc's guys!! Thanks. Wish I had more time to tweak during the weekdays. I'll try to do as much as I can but I expect by Wednesday they'll be another big group testing the same CPU and much more info available. If you read through the threads you can see who we're getting the CPUs from. Apparently he's swamped with orders now so I'm not sure if he wants the source advertised openly.

@dogsx2 - Rumor has it you have a 146 on the way. Do you have another board to test on?

No, not sure what I'm going to do. Yes, i have a 146 coming this week. If Team Japan is any indication of how it will do, it looks like about the same as the 144.

Good job on the 3000MHz.

@dogsx2 - I'm guessing the 3ghz 32M SuperPi stable club will be growing pretty big by Wednesday. Congratulations on that mark on air! I have a Thermaltake Typhoon I'm going to use to try to do the same.

I have a 146 coming too. I thought I might need it if I had a problem with the HTT crapping out too low. Doesn't look like that'll be a problem now though.

I did the same thing, I figured between the two of them, one should be OK. I also bought a BT for the x2 but with a s cat fan on my Hyper 6,not much diff. I hate to buy another board with all the new ones coming out soon but will have to rma this one and don't have another.

I think this should put to rest the thought that the opertons 939's are just a sd .

I think this should put to rest the thought that the opertons 939's are just a sd . Once we get a look a Optys outside of the initial production weeks we'll really be able to see if they can separate themselves from their SD brothers. In the meantime we need to push on the memory controllers (more bandwidth) to see if we can get FX owners to flinch just a little. :D

Did you ever move off your stock cooling? dogsx2 has some pretty good air going. I'm on water. Might be the CPU (luck of the draw) since I think we had a little less voltage for the same clock speeds than your chart indicated. Still, way too early in the testing to draw any conclusions. When we have the next batch in the hands of more users, the truth shall be revealed.

yeah, i'm using water right now. takes about 1.6v to get 2942mhz sPI 1m stable, where as you guys are doing 3ghz with 1.4-1.5v

it could be that i simply have a bunk core too.

Looks like u gonna have to test tht chip on another mobo 4 sure, you know anybody who can test it for you? Cos u got a new mthbrd also (i think i remember u sayin it was new) you dont know how tht mthbrd performs.

Im sure i dont need to mention this but I will, LOL :) try to take pieces out of the equation, i leave my explanation at tht,

Dang. Wish I had more time to play with this thing right now! I tried to go straight to 3.1ghz but it ain't happening. The speed/voltage scaling seems true to the Ozzi article. I might be near the end of the OC trail on this CPU without better cooling. The memory speed is still low enough that I don't think its holding things up. I wonder if this CPU will play nice with my old school BH-5 and my 2x1gig Patriot set.

Any one else scheduled to get their CPUs today?

@dogsx2 - Maybe you can get a database going in the original post that'll start to list the CPUs tested. Thats the kind of thing I think the mods looks for when they decide whether something is stickied. Maybe that and numbner of views.

how does your scale anyhow.. i presume how mine did, plus ~300mhz I first gave it a little bump on the volts right at 2.7ghz then took a jump straight to 3ghz and just under 1.5v. No stops inbetween so I'm kinda guessing at the middle part. ;)

Glad to see Eva2000 has some of the Opties on the way. Not sure we'll see any new wrinkles in the memory controller but if there are any, he'll figure them out.
that's for sure....he can be a bit slow...cause of all those goodies he's been playing with lately hehehehehhe

The multi is locked in exactly the same way it is locked on A64 CPU's, only upwards. Access to lower multipliers is fully available, this is my understading of the situation.

My old Mushkin BH-5 seems to like the Opty just fine too. I just set the major timings and everthing else to auto. I'm pretty sure with a little tweaking the BH-5 would edge out the TCCD on the Pi run at the same speeds. No time for that. Need to see if there is an OC penalty when running 2x1gig sticks. I'll post that tommorow.

It is. Whats the point of pushing the chip to the limits if your ram blows? If we weren't concerned about benching you would be better off grabbing 2 gigs of value ram, a 3800+ x2, jacking the clocks up to 2.5ghz or so, and calling it a day.

I couldn't care less about "benching." What does synth-benching do for anyone other than give them bragging rights. And I imagine I'm in the vast majority with this opinion.

Real-world performance, that's what most people, even the more xtreme members here, want out of their o/c'ing efforts.

Does this apply to all 939 chips? Well, with higher preamble you don't exactly lose much performance - I'm sure increased CPU mhz, if attainable, would easily outweigh any negligible performance hit of higher preamble...

Can I make it any easier to understand?

TEAM JAPAN TESTED AN OPTERON WITH BH5. THEY SAID THAT BH5 REQUIRES A HIGHER PREAMBLE TIME TO REACH MAX STABLE CLOCK SPEEDS THAN IT DOES ON A DESKTOP A64. It would be nice if someone could prove/disprove this statement by testing it. If you have BH5 and an opteron I'm sure you've maxed the BH5s clocks using a desktop A64 chip. It would take all of 5 minutes to boot your max clocks with the tightest preamble you had before and see if it works.

Thank you ozzi, thats all I wanted to know :)

almost correct. i did not forsee switching to s939, thus one of my two bh-5 sticks is still at home in my parents computer. both results are single channel

with 3.26v and 260mhz in the yellow slot to give a few errors per memtest #5 pass, but not a lot. not the most scientific way, i tested each two times


Preamble Test 1 Test2
4.0ns = 48 errors 76 errors
4.5ns = 55 errors 71 errors
5.0ns = 54 errors 69 errors
5.5ns = 33 errors 35 errors
6.0ns = 54 errors 81 errors - tried a third time, memtest crashed
6.5ns = 44 errors 77 errors
7.0ns = no boot no boot


sorry about that, i lied. won't boot with 7.0ns.. though it seems that 6 isn't exactly reliable :stick:
either way though, seems like 5.5ns is the best in this case

BTW use orange slots for BH5 :)
trying. this board is somewhat new to me :p:


also, the defintion of read preamble..



The Read Preamble time is a function of the asynchronous round trip loop latency, the clock
frequency, DIMM type and process type. These settings are initial recommendations only. They can
be adjusted to compensate for signal integrity issues, bus length mismatches, or any other empirical
data that proves that other settings are more reliable.
check page 172:
http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/26094.PDF

there's a nice chart. 133mhz = 7.0ns, 166mhz = 6.0ns, 200mhz = 5.0ns. seems to be 1000ns / mhz = read preamble, thus as you scale up the mhz a lower value SHOULD be optimal, but for some reason, other people find the opposite

If the dual core operton are like the single, they will run HOT. I had a x2 3800 and when running prime it would hit close to 60c with very good air. This 144 at 1.4 runs as hot as my 3700sd at 1.6.

with orange slots, same settings as last time.. kinda curious results. i found that a small number of errors normally occured on the first pass, so i recorded the first and second pass.


4.0ns = no memtest
4.5ns = 0 + 73
5.0ns = 2 + 78
5.5ns = 4 + 72
6.0ns = 2 + crash
6.5ns = 10 + 118
7.0ns = 0 + 0
7.5ns = no post

seems that 7.0ns wins in the orange slots. 261mhz acted reaaalll strange though, random dumps in memtest and such

currently oc'ing the opteron with the single sided stick of bh-5, just to see if the ram had any impact in the clocks.

First of all let me explain what mobo/ram i used and what i've done

Specs:
MSI K8N Neo4 Plat/NonSLI
2x512mb G.Skill LE

I was hoping to hit a good HTT with the 10x multi but i couldn't. The voltage options on this mobo aren't that great. If I tried doing 1.4 + 20% (1.680v) the system hard locked and I had to reset the CMOS. The max volt's it would take was 1.4 + 16.6% (1.632v) but in CPUID it reports it as hovering 1.552. Very odd. I don't have a64 tweaker so i can't do a more complex SS. I used ClockGen to OC it by 1mhz increments until superpi crashed or error'd. Temp's were hovering in the 50c's. Least to say I'm not too happy with the results of OC'ing BUT I'm sure that it's the mobo. I see that everyone here is using DFI for OC'ing and they are right for doing so. those mobo's seem to be more stable then my neo4 :slapass:

The following 2 SS's are the max where superpi didn't fail.

This is with the 9x multi at the MAX FSB that I could do without superpi crashing or windows BSOD'ing or the comp just restarting. I used a 180mhz divider on the RAM.
http://www.supload.com/thumbs/default/maxstable.jpg (http://www.supload.com/free/maxstable.jpg/view/)


The max I could do on the 10x multi was 280 1:1 where superpi finished calculations. I didn't use any dividers with this but i'll go back and try it again maybe with a 133 divider and see what happens.
http://www.supload.com/thumbs/default/maxstable2.jpg (http://www.supload.com/free/maxstable2.jpg/view/)

If you guys have any suggestions on what I should do to get a more stable OC then please let me know. Any questions feel free to ask and I'll check back here in about 30 minutes. I'm going to go test out more config's.

What cooling ("good air" ????) and how high was it clocked to be hitting 60c running 2 instances of prime ??, large or small FFT's ???

The reason I ask is, as per my sig, @ 2.8GHz the most I have been able to heat it up is 48~50c using prime large FFT's

Is yours a cd? I was at 2.8. Read post in this thread for cooling. It's gone down the road, now playing with 144.

yea 50's were too high. I am using an xp90 w/ 92mm panaflo u1a

well I dropped it to stock volts and slowly worked my way up from 250 in clockgen up to 280 before superpi failed. i then went back into the bios and set it at 280 to boot and superpi'd again and ran prime95 at the same time and tried upping it 1mhz at a time and it failed at loop12 on 281HTT this is all 1:1 here is a screen


FX Speed's :woot: with temps @ 35C this time:cool: high volts were kiling my OC :slap:


High Vcore does not equal high HTT. I think 1.52v is going to be about the top average. I can believe you were in the 50's at 1.68, surprised it didn't die on you. I was mid 40's when I first put it in at 1.5v. I sure hope the 146's do as well as the 144's. It would be nice to run 1:1 on memory.

Good job, keep posting results.

Team Japan:

S939 Opteron seems has an excellent tolerance at CPU rated voltage.
On the other hand, I found that any higher Vcore would hardly any help to get higher clockspeed

Wow, you been a busy boy while I was at work. Good job. Got anymore ram you can test? I have some Adata Hynix and Twinmos CH-UTT and BH-UTT. I might get to them at some point, but since these CPUs are going to find homes in gaming rigs eventually, I'm curious whether the memory controllers can handle 2gigs and hope any OC penalty is small. Seems like only the FX CPUs fly with 2x1gig sticks running flat out. In real world gaming I'm sure 2gig > max overclock.


I hate to buy another DFI with the new DFI boards coming out soon, have you heard when? Will have to get something to soon, hate to be on the sidelines.I'm waiting on the DFI NF4 "Expert" edition and DFI take on the Crossfire mobo. Those may be weeks away so you might have to bite the bullet and get a Ultra-D in the meantime.


I don't think on air your going to go much past 3100MHz unless you have a really good set of earplugs and a really cold room. Am looking forward to you putting yours on some real cooling. Keep up the good ground work. I just hope the 146 clocks as well as my 144. Really looking forward to seeing the before and after temps of Afireinside's Opty after the IHS is removed. My shaky hands and spastic colon won't allow me to consider doing the same. :p:

Nice find. I've been looking for NCIX to list it as a pre-order. Tank Guys don't have a lot of reviews on Resellerratings but all of the are positive. Tempted to place my pre-order now even though DFI versions of new chipsets have always come to market much later than their rivals. I'd be surprised if they actually ship first week of October. Even if it ships on time ... can you wait that long for a mobo?

Nvidia has made the Chipset on the Ultra-D harder to mod to SLI by puttin enamel over the points that need to be connected, although it can still be done according to what I've read. I've also heard some claim the SLI version gets cherry Nvidia chipset that'll clock higher. My SLI mobo has actually seen higher HTT than my Ultra-D - 370 vs.344 IIRC) so maybe there is something to that rumor.

No OC penalty going 2x1gig with my Patriot Infineon set. Not going to set anything but the major timings for now. I'll try to see if I can get it below 25 minutes with tweaks later. This CPU is going straight into my gaming rig as soon as testing has completed. Crucial Ballsitix at 300 (334 - 9:10 divider) might be ideal with this CPU.

A lot depends on how long it was left running at such high Vcore and if it overheated

Your best way to check is to set HTT and Vcore to default and see if it still works OK and then see if your chip will still OC to say ~ 2.4Gig @ default Vcore (which it should on most good chips)

Had to "cheat" a little by bumping the clock a bit as well as tightening timings to get the Infineons under 25 minutes on 32M SuperPi.

http://tinypic.com/e5mxz9.png

At this clock speed 2x1gig doesn't seem like more than the memory controller can handle. Maybe at higher clocks the load on the controller will start to inhibit the OC (where 2x512 wouldn't) but it looks good at 3ghz. The Winchester in my sig would problems doing the same thing. I'd have to throw bigger dividers and knock down the bandwidth to maintain high clocks, which of couse is not ideal. The OC kings should stick to their FX-57s and leave the Opties to us cheap bastard gamers so we can get the most out of the expensive 2gig sets we're forced to buy for more and more games. ;)

Would love to see someone run their Crucial 2gig set at 300 1:1 to really give the Opties a test.

The best part of this for me is I have a CPU that looks like it'll clock high enough to not bottleneck the SLI 7800GT rig I'm building. Cheap Bastard gamers might look for this deal to come around again. (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=74212)

I'm confused about the DFI/AMD stuff.

I thought AMD's idea here was to make AMD workstations cheaper by removing the need for Registered ECC memory. Therefore creating a workstation market/low end server market for these chips.

Do the 939s work in 940 boards? Where are the 939's suppose to OFFICIALLY go? Are there 939 server boards as opposed to desktop boards? I did not know this.

I was going to wait to try the 146 that came today( thanks Vandi) until my new board came Monday to fill in for this rma board. However, after looking at it for one and a half hours, I gave in. I won't post any ss as I only have single channel.

The long and short of it is it will do 300x10 but at 1.52v. I wouldn't trade my 144 for it(9x334@1.4). Even Team Japan showed less volts with the 144 vs the 146. If I didn't have the 144, I would think the 146 was great. On high air or water I think this stepping of the 144 will most likely do as well as the 146. Who knows what the next stepping will bring.

http://home.comcast.net/~aicjofs/144.jpgGreat stuff. The MSI doesn't need a lot of volts to give the core to reach its potential. I don't think I've ever seen a MaxTCase higher than 65c before except for the X2s. So maybe these CPUs were meant to run hot. High MaxTCase for single cores usually associated with great OCs. So far the Opties maintain that pattern.

Of course, there may be some really nice 1xx Opterons around doing 2.8-2.9 GHz at Prime but there is the same number of good SanDiegos (3700/4000) around.

I think its because evryone is too busy playing and tweaking ;), give it a few days and you will see the 'real' overclocks.

Agreed, and hopefully with large FFT's, not these pisspoor small FFT's that dont really stress a CPU :)

Sweet, that's the kind of result I've been looking for. Awesome clocks, 32M stable, and on good air cooling. :woot:

I am wondering why I have seen not even one Prime95 stability test on the 1xx Opterons? All that 1M, 8M and 32M stuff is just worth nothing.

Once, I got a SanDiego that could 1M up to 3100 MHz but primed only up to 2900 MHz. So just stop those 1M postings - they don't tell anything.

Lateste Prime95 v24.14 can be picked up here:
http://www.mersenne.org/gimps/p95v2414.zip

Do some 2-3h prime runs with those "freaking" Opterons and I am sure we will see more realistic OC's.

I agree 1M is a sprinters test. However, 32M is not. I wouldn't put it as high as prime but it does show stabilty in your rig. How high could you do 32M on your sd? I've had cpu's that would do either prime or 32M but not both.

I would call 32m stable enough for Xtreme Systems forums.

I don't think so. Posting Prime95 would stop the hype, I guess ... :rolleyes:

Of course, there may be some really nice 1xx Opterons around doing 2.8-2.9 GHz at Prime but there is the same number of good SanDiegos (3700/4000) around. So based on everything you've read so far you're predicting the Opterons will end up just like the SDs? Even if that were the case the Opteron 144 would still represent a terrific value to those on Venice budgets.

Thanks for the link to the German site. Seems odd that he is giving 1.56v to get Prime stable at just 2.7ghz. Average? Maybe. Still too early to tell.

I would encourage all Opteron users to post any benches they feel like posting and not worry that their results will be dismissed. We can interpret the benches as we see fit. Over time the patterns will emerge.

As for me, I'll continue to do the work I feel necessary to get my rig game stable. 32M SuperPi stable has always been enough to get game stable. I've used Prime before but it wasn't as good as an indicator of stable game play as 32m runs. Sounds like there is interest in Prime from other members though, so I may have to give it a go. :D

no 24h, but two hours prime 24.x are better than 30sec Super Pi.

I even say 30 min prime shows more.

I hope we're not going to get into the: if you do not have hours of prime, you have nothing debate. I guess one of the reasons I'm at XS is because it is XS. I thought it was a forum of wr, top oc's, information on oc'ing.

I like a system that is stable and I think OCCT or spi32 is more then enough for this forum. All you do is cut out the top oc'er when you cry about prime.

one of the toughest stress tests you can do is OCCT these suckers.....so anyone with an the 30minutes OCCT test pass would be priming for hours no problem.....so it's only 30 minutes away for the quick stress test

Ask them specifically are they s939. Amd recently released the opteron 939 series, no idea why to be honest, but it seems to be good for all of us. on a side note i believe computersmsa has filled his order, so no more from there.

*Place Holder....Opty 146 in Hands....0530APMW*

And a note to anybody who's interested.....it does not come with the FX/X2 cooler, it comes with the lowly Venice/SD/3800 cooler.


Also of note is that this placeholder won't be touched until I get some TIM....it's gonna be awhile. :(

Oh yeah, no runs on stock cooling for while--no mounting bracket.
