Opteron problems

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
So today I get my Opteron165+Ultra-D...I start OCing it..I hit around the 2.4GHz mark....using 9x268...If I go any higher, I get a BSOD...so If i try to up the voltage from stock...it just won't post at all...any reason this could be happening? Any advice? I know I should be getting a lot higher. I have CCBBE0616

This tells you about what you can do.
I don't know if you already know how to overclock but this will deifinitely help you overclock, it worked with mine =) same setup as yours.

Before you do anything, just make sure ur ram is in the orange slot (i think, i heard it was a little bit faster), and ur sata is in 3/4 (unless you are using IDE).

Just by the looks of it, i think it could be the ram divider problem.

Make sure you monitor the temperature as you go, i try to keep my temperature under 50 (60 on die).

Good luck overclocking!

Thanks for the info. I have 2 ram sticks, should they both be in orange slots? or what? My ram divider is currently 1/2, just OCing so I know I wouldn't have to worry about my RAM failing. I'll check out the link now.

Yes both in orange slots O_O i am kind of nooob at this so i am not 100% sure but, by placing two sticks of ram in orange slots gives the best result.. (i mean.. dual channel and things..)

Could the be HTT (should lower it to x3 becuz HTT hates to go over 1000)

Yes keep the HT lower than 3x other you may have issues.

However so we can help you more i would advise that you Post here all of your overclock setting...FSB ,V-core and such things.

ram divider 133[2/3]
2T


FSB: 285
x3.0 HTT
CPU Volt: 1.5v ( i got the volt to change from default )
RAM Volt: 2.7v


That's all I've changed.


So I'm now at ~2.55GHz. I know I can get higher.
