I have my settings now at x11 and 253 FSB. This gets (for all you math dummies) 2783MHz. This is at voltage 1.475 (not incredibly high for an OPTY). For some reason, I am hitting a wall here. HT is at 4, ram (which is corsair xms 2GB ddr400) is at 3-3-3-7/266 divider. I am stable at this speed, temps ranging from 40 idle 50 load. My max fsb tested out at 314. However even when increasing the voltage, i can't get any higher in terms of CPU speed without rebooting.
I am pretty sure the cabye can do better than this, from what ive read, and the temps arent too bad, is there something i can/should do in order to increase my potential for OC'ing?
also, 3dmark score came at 266 x10. This (from what im told) doesnt make sense that it should beat 253 x11, but should i maybe keep it at 266 x10 instead? even though its a slower CPU speed?
other than that, i can't recommend the opteron enough, this chip OWNS on all benchmarks i have run so far. if you can get your hands on a CABYE or CABNE, do it, even over an fx53.
thanks for the help.
