  1. The DFI guru's reccomend using their OC guide. Their OC guide says to run the 32M test ... not the 8M test. I was simply stating that your OC based on a 8M test does not neccesarily mean its stable. Thats all I was saying.
  2. SuperPi 8M test is nothing. You want to run the 32M test. And if Prime "wonks" out then you are definatley not stable.
  3. Excuse my noobness, what is the IHS? And congrats on the nice OC.
  4. Try checking the OCDB, and look for similar steppings. Link is in my sig.
  5. Just because another board did it, doesnt mean this board will do it the same way. Like the others, Id suggest finding your CPU ceiling first by following the OC guide posted.
  6. Why are you doing Prime on one core, and Super on another? Why not Prime both?
  7. Just a quick question. My default Multi on my processor is 10. In the bios, I can only go lower than 10x ... is there a way to have it higher than 10? Also, is there any sort of advantage to lowering the Multi and cranking the FSB? BIOS say I can go up to 550 FSB. For example, would 8*325 be better than 10*260 to achieve 2600?
  8. Whats your idea of good temps at 1.6v? I cant imagine it being lower than high 40's and probably 50's ... especially under load.
  9. Followed the OC guide on finding my CPU max. As of right now, the highest I can go on voltage is 1.4v (1.3v is my default) due to heating issues. I am running on stock air cooling, including the stock AMD fan However I was able to get stable SuperPi32M tests all the way up to 2.7ghz before getting an error. My max with 1.4v is between 2.66ghz and 2.69ghz. I plan on getting water cooling, so it's almost pointless to get a solid OC for the 2.65ghz as I will just be doing it all over again once I get a new CPU max. Keeping it at 2.4ghz for now. I can pass 10+ hours of Prime95 with this setup.
  10. Lol, not what I wanted to hear Im gonna try to find my CPU ceiling first I suppose, it doesnt seem too tough.
  11. Are you talking about the ratio? Or is this another setting? And yeah Old, I know Im gonna have to do that ... was just hoping that *maybe* it couldve gone a bit smoother for me lol. Was a big maybe :[
  12. As you can see from my sig, I have some pretty nice OCZ ram, PC4000 gold edition. I tried OC'ing my Opty 170 at 2.6ghz (260*10). I set the ram divider to the manual default of 1/01 (200mhz). I even upped the voltage for my Dram from 2.6v to 2.7v for a little breathing room. However, I cant even pass the SuperPi 32M test. I get the round limit error half way through roughly. Ive read over the PDF OC guide, and understand pretty much the majority of it. However I dont know what the next steps should be in adjusting my RAM ... I can only assume its my memory causing the instability at this point, 2.6ghz should be easy for my processor.
