  1. Oh I installed both of those- no dice, can't get a stable OC above 50mhz (ahhh).... and turning off thermal throttling didn't help either... Yeah I've just got the crappiest Core 1 known to man
  2. I have it at 1.20 but dont know if thats too low?
  3. Hmm, thanks... I'll turn it off and try OCing and let you guys know if OCing is any easier
  4. Future games will utilize dual core, Like Oblivion
  5. Ahhh, ok Yes what? Yes it should be on? Yes it shouldn't be on lol we need more detailed answers for idiots like me
  6. My main reason to flash would be because I can't OC my Opteron 170 at all.... despite everything that I try and I think it might be a BIOS issue
  7. I don't have any stability issues... so... I guess I probably shouldn't flash my BIOS then
  8. It shouldn't be on? If it is on will it affect OCing ability?
  9. Please do not move this!!! I do not want a third party or custom bios, I want to know which OFFICIAL Bios is best, I don't trust 3rd part BIOS's Bios Version: 6/23/2005 6.00PG This is for my Ultra D. Is it a good idea to update it? Just for stability or performance? My X1900XTX isn't performing to par, and I don't know if a Bios update could help? If I do it is there a program that will allow to do it from windows- is it safe/easy? Which BIOS should I update to? Thanks guys
  10. I do and I've got floppy disks, I just don't know which BIOS to go with... Or how to do it

  12. Im just pissed off I spent all this money on great OCing RAM and a nice HSF, and my damn CPU won't clock over stock speeds.......... sdfhgdjaskhakjlgdshkl
  13. Your lucky, my Opteron 170 core 1 craps out at a 100mhz increase.... Voltage, latency, etc doesn't do crap- I give it the worst core of the year award Oh but my FSB can do 320 stable, which is absolutely GREAT :drool:
  14. You are right... I increased LTD V to 1.3 and behold "CPU core 1" volts went up to 1.28 My question is, will Increasing LTD V perhaps help me OC- is there a limit to how far I should Volt it?
  15. Hi everyone, here are my specs first off: Lian Li 7077 NF4 Ultra-D Opteron 170 (Gonna OC) Mushkin XP Redline PC 4000 3-2-3-8, (2X 1 gig sticks) PC power and cooling Turbo-Cool 510 ASL x1900xtx Bios version 6.00PG Bios Date 6/23/2005 Ok here is what I noticed. I first was trying to OC my Opteron 170, and noticed that core 1 always failed at even a little bit above stock speed... weird but no biggie, just a dud right? I think not... I have been relying on my BIOS and AMD power monitor to show me voltages, AMD's power monitor always shows me as getting 1.35 V on both cores even though my BIOS setting is at 1.475... Now my bios shows me at 1.46... It was recently that I installed SiSoftware Sandra. I was looking through it and I noticed that core 0 voltage was 1.46..... So the BIOS was right, and AMD's wrong. But what my BIOS didn't tell me was that was only for Core 0... Core 1 is only getting 1.18V.... Which must explain my poor OC results for only that core and random system crashes even at stock speeds. I have installed the SP2 hotfix patch for dual cores and the AMD patch for dual core support. I know my BIOS and system supports dual core because it registers, but what on earth is going on? And most importantly how can I fix it? Is this a problem with my power supply? My motherboard or my CPU? I really am wondering if this is the mobo or the bios or what? Again thank you for all the help you guys give me, much appreciated! Frank
  16. Yeah but usually newegg just sends you a new one and returns it back to the manafacture..... I think.... idk, I really don't know how RMAing works
  17. I am having a terrible time Overclocking my Opteron 170, anything over stock speeds and core 1 fails within like 1 second. I have tried every OCing trick in the book and now am wondering if it is my bios? My bios is version 6.00pg from 6/23/2005 Please help me, I'm having such a hard time even overclocking this thing a smidgeon- I have tried every little thing I and people at other forums can think of.
  18. As for the memory its running at 3-3-2-8 with bank cycle time at 7 clocks. On CPUz it shows that nothing is there for SPD... Oh and my bios version is 6.00PG
  19. Yeah I don't think thats the problem- when I clock it back to normal speeds, and run both of them- I see in the task manager it is testing each seperate core..... Gosh I just cant believe its possible to get such a crappy CPU... any other ideas? Could it be the bios? How do I check which one I have?
