Opty 165 max voltage?

Recommended Posts

couldnt really find an answer to this using the search, but on water how high could i reasonably push the vcore?

Since you have a good high range WC setup i would probably take the vCORE up to 1.65v max. These Opteron's really don't need too much voltages for overclocking at high speeds. I think you got a good stepping, maybe hit around 1.85-2.9GHz i think but not to sure. Good Luck!

he has a great stepping which will do 3Ghz+ and you're right I wouldn't set vcore higher than 1.67v.

it should do 2.8 on stock vcore and 2.9 if you got a nice ambient temp.

good luck.

What kind of speeds are you hitting and under what voltages? just curious what other ccbbe 0617 owners are getting out of their chips

currently stable at 3080 1.57v on a 5/6 memory divider.

I am only getting 2.8 (on water) ,but upping the voltage doesn't stableize it... Going to try again with some new ram (ddr-500) I have to set my divider to 1/2, which I think is limiting me...

With a 165 processor PC3200 ram will definitely hinder your overclock. Quite often it's next to impossible to use most of the dividers below 150.

I definally agree, pc3200 is not for overclocking for sure.

 

I beg to differ...its more that I just lucked out, and yeah I could probably run a 3.0 all day long if I had some Redline or some OCZ in my rig...but either way my PC3200 is running just fine at 260mhz...1:1, and 2 FX-57s later I am at 2.866...

 

I agree that DDR500 Ram is meant for overclocking, but most DDR400 Ram will do close to 250....and in general as long as you multi isnt that low you will be okay...

 

But with his case yes DDR500 most definatly with a x9 multi...
