azrael201 Posted January 5, 2007 Posted January 5, 2007 it's an opteron 165 CCBBE 0615 EPMW and after examining the databases with the same stepping I was pretty sure if I added enough voltage I could obtain 3GHz. I guess I am worried the reason i'm failing Prime is because at load I hit upwards of 45-47C. Is that too hot? In the 3GHz database I saw at ExtremeOC and XS they hit similar temps if not higher. My PWMIC runs fairly hot up to 50-60 but I read that it is rated for 100C from sound98x thread somewhere. When I had the 3000+ venice core I had 1.6V in it and it still ran 30C idle but the Opty 165 runs 34C idle. Maybe I didn't use enough AS5? Perhaps reseating it will help or from the symptoms it's not that simple? Should i try a different BIOs? this is for the first system in my sig Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
