Socket F overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 22

For the processors in question, you can probably get away with a single 8-pin (the combined TDP of both is only 130W).
nTune does not work with this particular board, at least not on Windows 7. It causes it hard lock.

yes, the guy that suggested nTune said also is limited to XP/2003 so me I am looking for some win server 2003 versions. Any more results at 2.08GHz?

So I finally got them folding the big WU's...I'm getting somewhere between 30 and 40k PPD after the bonus kicks in.
Not bad for a $350 system (mind you, it could be a lot less without the glitzy coolers and the 24GB of RAM).

so what is the final overclock you managed stable for the bigadv units?
I got the system up and running, USB ports on the back are dead, so is the PS/2 connector for mouse. Luckily i installed 2 USB ports on the headers and with a PS/2 keyboard I started it, however I have a problem with the fans : they are spinning at 7500 RPM! Untill i installed SpeedFan and reduced them to 30% there was nothing I could do to throttle them down. Is there a setting in the BIOS I am missing? also i suppose you flashed the bios to most recent? You used a floppy disk?

2080 MHz was the highest I could get; any higher and I get an instant hard lock, even with nothing running. Quite possibly because the IMC doesn't like getting overclocked. It might be happier with less RAM...I have all 16 slots populated.
There's a setting in the BIOS that lets you change the fans to "workstation" mode, so they'll throttle down quite a bit (but are still depressingly loud). If you want something quite, any Socket 939 cooler will work (you will need the HSF bracket available here).
I made a USB DOS boot drive and then copied the BIOS flash files over to it.
Here's a pic:

This is cool. However with the proposed change for the bigadv, how much does it make on SMP alone? and you say that bracket will allow a standard Socket 939/AM2 to be mounted? nice.2080MHz from 1800 is quite a decent overclock, drop us a word back if you get some SMP results from that. Thanks

http://blog.zorinaq.com/?e=42 is where I first found out about it.
What board are you on?

I finished mine in the mean time, upgraded the CPUs too, the rig is doing 12k PPD in Win7 for SMP. IMG_0042.JPG 1249k .JPG file
I solved the issue of the very noisy fans(7500RPM), by installing 70mm standard Athlon fans, was impossible to find 60mm, and they are also 4 pin which I allows me to assign different profiles in bios : Workstation (50%) or Server (65%), they are also much cheaper then what bayleyw installed. The 2419 never pass over 31-32 deg C on full load so they are safe.

for videocard I got a 1x to 16x from startech, you get it on newegg is like 25$, I put an older Radeon HD 4550 that was low profile already and it worked from the first try. I can even game. For videocard to work this way you need it to be low profile ready as for modification you will need a hex M3 key to unscrew the screws that hold the DVI plug onto the bracket or you can look at X1 pci express videocards, there is a GT520 from Zotac on newegg also. For SSD adoption you wil need an add in card as the SATA II controller onboard has only raid and sata function, no AHCI. I will get myself an Asus U3S6 to do the job.
