  1. If they are TCCD, have a look at this thread http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=46263 Also, read some. Initial Build Guide, Overclocking Guide, etc
  2. I believe the part number is ocz4001024eldcper2-k Please confirm.
  3. Don't know what the difference in price between an Opteron 185 and a FX 60 is. That's not what this thread was about. If the difference was only $40, I'd pick the one with the better stepping.
  4. Thanks PhoetuS. I actually found most of those posts already, but, thanks for taking the time. It may all be a moot point, as I have just put my new Opty 175 in, and I am priming away at 250 X 11 with 1.425 VCore. Not a bad start, especially for my CCBWE 0601 stepping. I'm going to see what this will do quickly. The results form the internet seem to be mixed on this weird stepping anyway.
  5. True. However, a stepping is a stepping is a stepping. Hoping someone has some info on this stepping.
  6. I'm looking at this CPU. The stepping brings up a few hits, but they are almost all for a FX-60, and most are 0536. Anyone got any input on this CPU?
  7. Thanks. Had to get it in, as I am itching to try my Opty 175. Crappy stepping, yet, Lady Luck may be with me. Not all CCBYE are crap. I can't find much info on the year/week code though, 0601. Hope they all weren't still hung over from New Years Eve!
  8. OK. Good luck with your over clock. If the memory stick you get back has different ICs on it than the one you've got, even getting them to run stock together may be difficult. Just something to keep in mind.
  9. If I have it right, your memory is this OCZ4001024PF. If so, the rated settings are 3-3-3-8. To push the memory a bit higher, I'd start by setting your tCL to 3, not 2.5. You could try setting the tREF to Auto. There's quite a few posts that suggest that is the best way to go for this setting. I'd also set the tRC to 9, and the tRFC a little higher if unstable. You might want to visit the Official OCZ support site and ask for suggestions there. http://www.bleedinedgesupport.com/ocz/forum/index.php I can't find anything that says what type of chips are on this memory, so its hard to say what to set the Drive strengths etc to. I think looking at the OCZ site would be your best bet, although the chances of this memory doing a decent overclock are probably not very good. You say you are RMA ing one stick. The chances of ending up with a matched pair of memory are probably not good. Did you buy them as a matched set? If so, you should have RMAd the pair. I'd send one of the OCZ reps at the web site an EMail and discuss this aspect with him.
  10. Just to be clear, I wasn't trying to flame you. I learned, as did many others, that taking on a DFI board isn't for folks that want to plug everything in and have it work. That does happen, but for the best performance and stability, there is a lot of tweaking to be done. Over clocking just increases the complexity. Finding 2 X 1GB sticks of good DDR is getting difficult. EBay may be your best bet. 4 Sticks will run, but probably only at 2T. The best place to start is finding a listing in the over clocking database with similar components, and starting with those settings. Unfortunately, I don't think there are any with this memory. If you could figure out what chips are in the memory, you might find another brand or model in the database with the same chips. I found a thread which says there are many different revisions with different chips. http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthre...t=cmx512-3200c2 Have a look at the PCB and see if there are any revision markings that may tell you what you are dealing with. It may help. From what I've seen on this memory so far, I would be looking for some decent 2GB memory.
  11. How did you install your OS? Did you do it with an unstable system? If you did, I would be prepared to reinstall. Installing with an unstable system can create errors which will haunt you over time and become worse. Perhaps you should start from scratch using the Initial Build Guide which you will find here. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20832 Start with a proper CMOS clear. What BIOS do you have? The one in my sig is well respected as a very forgiving one. Good Luck!
  12. You should read the Overclocking Guide stickied at the top of this forum.
  13. OK. Actually just found the product sheet that says 2.5-3-3-6. I'd try just one stick in the orange slot furthest from the CPU with tCL 2.5, tRCD 3, tRAS 6, tRP 3, and everything else on Auto. See if it will boot. If it does, use A64 Info or A64 tweaker to see the other timings the board is setting. It may help.
  14. Holy smokes! Where to start? I have read that Opterons don't like a mem divider below 150. Setting your tCL to 1.5 could be causing a problem. The stock timings for your memory is 3-3-3-8, according to the Corsair Web Site. This type of memory is not for overclocking or tight timings. All other settings on Auto is probably causing a problem. You're running 4 sticks of memory, that's a challenge in itself with Enthusiast memory, let alone these sticks. You really have your work cut out for you. I'd advise you to go to the Corsair Forums and look for help there, though I didn't find much with a quick search. There is very little in the Stock Database here either.
  15. I realize its not a good stepping. In fact, I can find little info on the stepping at all. CCBWE 0601. 0602s are reported doing >2.8, so, we'll see. My cooling is more than up to the challenge. At this point in time, I prefer to regard it as a new adventure and remain optimistic, despite any evidence to the contrary, both factual and anecdotal.
  16. Just made this entry in the OCDB. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...9&postcount=363 This Opty used to belong to Prostock62. Soon, I'll be putiing my Opty 175 in. Its a CCBWE stepping, so I don't think I will get to 3 GHz, but, we'll see.

  18. I used Speed Fan with a single core, and it showed two. I never did figure out what the second one was, never really bothered. I just set it up to show the one that I knew was the VCore.
  19. It does sound like unstable memory settings. It could run all right for a while, with errors starting to build up, and then starting to cause problems. As time goes by, erors become more frequent. Did you Memtest the memory? Have you done any stability testing?
  20. My case is very similar to yours. With a water block on the CPU, cooling of the PWMIC and MOSFETS is even worse. I simply placed a 120mm fan on the deck above the lower compartment just behind the 5.25" drive bays pointing at the board, and temps are now staying low. Granted, I don't have heat dumping into my case from the CPU Cooler, but it made a significant difference.
  21. I don't think it will fit without some kind of modding. I see from some reviews of it that it fits the NF4 boards. The VC-RE fits the NF4 boards, but not the NF3 Ultra without modding, so .....
  22. The temp rise for your video card is probably because of your NF3 Chip. The temp of this chip is probably going up with the overclock, and it is located close enough to the Graphics GPU to affect it. Case air flow is the answer. You need to move the air from there out of the case. A PCI slot cooler will help, as well as a case fan blowing from the front of the case across the chip and the graphics card. If you raised the voltage of the chip as well for the overclock, that's even more heat.
  23. Actually meant to type that my 166 divider doesn't work over 300 MHz. That's why I think I need the X11 Multi, so I can run a lower HTT with the 180 divider, or even 1:1, though that is doubtful with the current crop of PC4000 memory. Just waiting for the right price now I think.
  24. Well, I've read quite a bit of this thread, hard to read it all as if you just read part and try to come back, you lose the flow. I think I want to get a 175, as I want the X11 multi. My board doesn't seem to like the 166 divider at anything over 250 MHz HTT. It will boot using the 180 divider, but that sets too high a speed for my memory. I know I've got Centon in my Sig, but that's just because I'm waiting for my OCZ 2 X 1 GB PC4000 Plat XTC to come back from RMA. Do I have this right, folks tend to buy the 165 as its cheaper than a 175 but usually overclocks well, so why pay more to hit the same speed? Therefore, as I have a specific reason to buy the 175 as opposed to the 165, I should have just as much chance to get a decent overclock as a 165 with the same stepping, right?
  25. Are you aware that if you run this memory at just stock settings you will actually be under clocking it? Some BIOS have the ability to set the memory divider to 250MHz, which is stock for this memory, while running the rst of your system at the stock 200MHz. I have found that Mushkin has great customer support, and they will help you get your system set up to run as I have described. If you go to this site http://forums.mushkin.com/phpbb2/viewforum...37ac2f6050ad3e0 and look around you can find quite a bit on this memory, or you can Post there and a Mushkin rep should answer. You can even EMail a rep directly from the main Mushkin Support site.
