My results with the RDX200

Recommended Posts

Below are my initial results with the DFI RDX200 CF-DR. I never bothered with tweaking the memory much, will focus on all that later. Right now I was mostly interested in seeing how far I could push my 3200+ on this motherboard.

A Opteron 144 is coming my way tomorrow or so.

 

Incase somebody still hasn't seen the DFI RDX200 CF-DR here is a picture of it:

Excuse me if some of the pictures are large!

 

Here is another picture with the board mounted in the case:

I took a couple of other pictures while mounting everything but they are unfortunately lost, besides, would it even be interesting? :rolleyes:

Let's get down to the nitty-gritty of the matter. Overclocking.

 

The highest HTT I could obtain without lowering the multiplier too much was 322:

At 322HTT my memory latency in Everest was acceptable:

To my dissapointment this CPU is "only" capable of 2990Mhz

The SuperPI time is almost 30s:

To see if it really was stable I primed it for 16 hours, with no failures:

Maybe it is possible to squeeze out more from this system after a little bit of tweaking. I suspect so.

This is my first ever AMD based system; please be gentle with me!

Hi!

 

Thanks. The temperatures never exceeded 35C according to Smartguardian which reads from the onboard sensors, and we know how reliable those are...

I will invest in a probe to see exactly how high it is loaded. I can also say that the water was not very warm at all. The waterblock is making perfect contact.

Very nice memory latency!

 

What speed is that system memory running at?

 

Looking at Everest, it doesn't mention the chipset, if I run Everest benchmark it will tell my chipset is RS480/RX480 (everest version 2.20.405)..

 

Anyway nice pics/screenies. :D

I have to use a older version of Everest because the newer versions appears to be causing my system to reboot. This, by the way, has happend to more people than myself. I'm using version 1.51.195, pretty old. The "Ultimate Edition" of Everest will cause a reboot aswell.

The memory most likely ran at 250-260, but I am unsure. I forgot to note that! The next time I'll try to be more methodical.
