Help Me Overclock My Opteron Please

Recommended Posts

this is why I REALLY REALLY love my dfi sli-dr, it automatically kicked in default cmos settings when it detected the settings i had were unstable and/or prevent a successful post.

It took me about two weeks to finally "almost" fully understand this OC method. Your trying to do it all in one night. And hey I'm sure your intelligent enough to figure this out.

it only sucks when you dont take the time to learn it right and if your board isnt as good as a msi or dfi board :P

lets save the "your motherboard sucks" comments until we determine if it does or not eh?

 

success!

 

ok, settings are

 

220Mhz CPU/DRAM

 

stock cpu vcore

 

800Mhz HTT

 

memory at 2.5-3-3-8 1T @ 2.75v

 

now....

 

questions....

 

i think my memory can do much better than that, tighter timings i mean at 220Mhz, but maybe not, of course, i plan to get this CPU higher, so lets keep them there for now unless you guys have another suggestion

 

at what point should i consider upping the CPU vcore?

Whn it is unstable at the clock you have on, but you sholdn't reach for the stars, maybe increase by one forth untill you hit too high of a remp for your taste.
