    The Official Opteron 939 Overclocking Thread

    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?

    Don't know, just got it. The cooler is a hyper 6 with smart cat fan, as5.

    Wow! I may have to experiment with a 146 S939 Opteron and see how it goes. 9 x multi is kinda low.

    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-single channel only

    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.

    What boards/BIOSes were you guys using and did the system boot with no problem when you first put the Opteron in?

    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.

    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.

    Just wait, i will order and get week 31 and it will top out at 2.7 on my h20

    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.

    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?

    As hot as they're running, someone will take a blade to it soon I'm sure. So what would the "S" be an indication of?

    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 .

    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.
