So, what you're trying to say is that there were subtle signs of mishandling on the box when you got it? biggrin.gif

I've never heard it put so graphically.

So guys, I'm wondering. Is the 1.55v max on the vcore a real number or is it something people just say? I am on my opteron 165 system at my parent's house and I was looking for maximum vcore, and there's a thread on XS with people running them close to 1.7v for two years with no issues. There's lots of people saying, "never go over 1.55v on your opty 165!" all over the internet but no one actually has any proof or experience with anything higher.

I'm quite curious, my RS 360 can handle 1.6v easily when I don't OC the CPUNB. I could probably even go higher. I was at 5.18ghz no probs at 1.6v and temps were fine, but I had mem and CPUNB and HTlink majorly underclocked so my performance stank.

EDIT: Unless anyone steps forward with a definitive "you will toast your chip" I think I'm gonna do it and buy a spare FX 8350 with Christmas money in case I do toast it. What do you guys think?

what section would that info be under? i looked at the 8150 figuring it would be more likely to have the database

The 1.55v comes from AMD
Now the obvious part:
The obvious warranty void, and you need to have the cooling to go with it.

That was a story @ semi-accurate
http://semiaccurate.com/2012/11/19/amd-kills-off-big-cores-kaveri-steamroller-and-excavator/

They reported that the ' big cores' were done with Vishera, then a couple hours later said AMD contacted them and said that it was not true and Kaveri and steamroller etc were on track. the story has an update on the bottom of the story.

It shows up as a link if they get the batch info if I remember correctly, and it's not for all chips. I believe it's the only place I have seen that has gathered that info, but it's been a while. I have been checking it every week because I want that info as well to see the difference in binning.

Subtle? hmmm It seems I may have understated things to a certain degree. Yes , it was most disappointing to see the box containing my ASUS 6970 arrive in the shape of a banana , looking rather like someone had partially peeled back one end and decided " I'm no longer in the mood for banana " and simply abandoned it.
It's a three slot card and the box they shipped it in wasn't even large enough to properly close with it inside, It was BULGING.
I was sure the card was messed up, but I tried it anyway. It ran fine , but very warm , the heatsink had been knocked around enough that it wasnt making good contact. Which i was able to correct.

I mean no disrespect because I think you're a cool guy and all, but AMD has said 1.55v for 90nm and 32nm. That makes absolutely no sense at all. I thought every node shrink was supposed to be a .1v decrease in max vcore.

Part of what I'm getting at is I'm curious if anyone is interested in seeing if running higher voltage than 1.55v makes a huge difference or not with degradation. I don't care about warranty. The way I see it is that I have the money to buy a new one and AMD could probably use some money. Anyways, FX 8350 is $199 at NCIXUS, no more newegg tax. http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=76932&vpn=FD8350FRHKBOX&manufacture=AMD

I am not trying to talk you into doing anything with your chip, but that is the info I got with my review chip.
