Opty 146 CAB2E limits..

Recommended Posts

Hiya everyone! Just got my DFI & Opty a few days ago! :D

 

I seemed to have gotten a new Opty stepping, can't find it when I searched here, ocforums and xtremesystems. But i did find that CAB2Es can generally go up to 2.8GHz without a hitch. Does anyone know if it could go higher?

 

I'm currently at 2.5GHz on stock vcore (1.4v). Started at 2.2Ghz and bumping it 0.1GHz after every 10hours or so of priming. :O

No clue man, but let me know as I'll probably be selling my dual core for a 146 or 144 soon.

mine is running at 2972mhz... i still gotta tweak it on a 140ddr divider with memory running at 218mhz, check my sig, this is running at this only at a 1.55vcore :):), i dont think i can be stuffed with the extra 30mhz but will tru :P

Why are you doing that?

WoW! I sure hope I can reach that high for 24/7..

 

But do batches play an important role? Am i the only one with a 0610GPAW batch? :confused:

batches tend to make all the difference

 

the newer 06xx chips seem to be very good clockers

 

so im sure you'll get some great results out of your 146

 

maybe you'll make it into the elusive 3ghz club lol :nod:

I've had mine since the Opteron craze started and been very happy with it. Mine is very sensitive to heat. 40c under load seems to be the sweet spot, although if I got a more extreme method of cooling I could push it further. CAB2E's I understand have bad colgbug symptoms when you starting hitting negative temps.

I thot almost all AMD CPUs have the cold bug..

 

Anyway, I'm on air, and its hitting 39-40 on load at 2.5GHz with stock vcore.. :D
