AMD X2 4400+ stepping CCBWE 0547TPMW

Hello All,

 

It is great to have found this form. I hope a can contribute in the future, but for the time I will be learning about the DFI motherboard.

 

I am building a new rig and it's been about six years since my last AMD (I think it was a 233mhz on a AOpen motherboard. Well I have been stuck in an Intel world and need to get out. So I thought it would be fun to build another AMD rig and maybe do some ocing. I chose a DFI motherboard, so this is new territory for me. I like what I have researched about the DFI. I have built plenty of Intel and AMD machines on all kinds of motherboards. For instance, MSI, Abit, Asus and Aopen to name a few, with CPU like Intel PIII 600mhz oced to 700mhz with a oc FSB to 119mhz and below. So, I am no rookie, just a little rusty with some of the new stuff. Just a little soap boxing imho.

 

I guess I should get to the point. I got my CPU in (yeah). I really wanted an Opteron 165 but I also want a supported combination of motherboard (DFI) and CPU (AMD). I read the Opteron is not supported for ocing on a DFI board. Anyway my chip stepping turned out to be this;

 

AMD Athlon 64 X2

ADA4400DAA6CD

CCBWE 0547TPMW

1369027L50628

 

Is it a good stepping for this chip? Does anybody have any success with this taking this stepping to 2.7+?

 

Thanks.

The 4400+ from the X2 family i believe has more cache then regular and run hot compared to a Venice. Also you shouldn't worry about the stepping since all AMD chips can overclock to a certain extend. You should buy an aftermarket cooler, not sure how the stock HSF will turn out for you, but if you want to hit 2.7GHz you'll have to have alot of patience and go through hours of trial and error from tweaking and testing and rebooting. I hope this helps and hope to hear your success, good luck to you and welcome to our forum, hehe.

 

Note:I just saw your SIG, regarding your Zalman 7000 HSF, if you don't find it working well for your, you should settle for a XP-90c with a nice 92mm fan.

I am simply trying to find out of any success in the over clocking of this chip. I have searched this forum to find results for this particular stepping. The stepping does matter as far as the batch is of CPU is concern. While one batch of CPU will do well at over clocking, another’s may not. This chip has 1gb L2 cache per core and yes this can cause it to get hotter. Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu HSF and the XP-90c are so close is reviews, that if one does not work, I’ll might as well go with a XP-120 or liquid. Thanks for the welcome good to be aboard.
