post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok so i got my new mobo, cpu and video card today. I am just wondering what stepping i got on my CPU. Its a Opteron 148 and the numbers are as follows.

CAB2E 0604CPMW

Edited for clarity:

CAB2E is the Core. 0604 is the week. CPMW is the (sub) Stepping. All 3 of these criteria determine the overall Stepping of the CPU.

Is that a good stepping? About what are these overclocking too?

the second line is the stepping.

The last line is your S/N. Take that outta your post.

I have AS5. Should i put that on the CPU. I Know its better than the stock stuff but do i need to scrape off the stuff thats already on the stock heatsink?

Yes, you should clean the old stuff off completely before applying the AS5. Be sure to use the proper amount as well, a BB sized dot in the middle will be plenty to cover the whole CPU once the HSF is tightened down.

Remove the old stuff with out scratching or gouging the HS and clean with Alcohol, preferably 90% and a lint free cloth.

Oh, and CAB2E are usually a good stepping
